"Never use taxi to/from airport" Taxi rip-offs Tip by nplima

Taxi rip-offs, Lisbon: 10 reviews and 4 photos

I live in Lisbon and take the taxi to and from the airport only because I can drive there, and know my way around the city. If this is not your case,by all means, avoid the taxi drivers from the airport.

Unique Suggestions: Avoid these crooks by planning in advance and getting advice from locals. Go to www.cm-lisboa.pt and www.carris.pt for maps/transport info. Get a map at the tourist information kiosk.

Taking note of the license plate, getting a receipt and complaining to the police will have effect only after you leave. So, avoid the problem instead of dealing with it.

Fun Alternatives: At the airport, follow the indications for City Bus, and take it. The fare is ?3 and it stops at 3 places (Entrecampos, Saldanha, Marques Pombal) where you can take the subway, trains or buses to most places in and out of the city.

If you are not carrying much luggage, instead of taking the citybus, walk 20 meters further down the street and take bus no. 22 or 45. They will both stop at Marques Pombal.
