Arriving in Algarve by train is also comfortable, easy and fast. And surely is much cheaper than by car.
There are daily trains that leave from Lisbon – the journey takes about 3 to 4 hours, depending on how much stops there are and which is your final station.
The journey till Tunes is common; then at this location you should change your train if you are heading to Lagos; otherwise, if you are heading to Faro there is no need to change to another train, as this one continues the journey till that final station.
To travel between Lisbon and Albufeira, a 1st class ticket costs about 17euro. These tickets might be bought at the company’s website and if bought online they are 10% cheaper. Notice that you must buy them on a computer connected to a printer, as they generate a pdf file with the ticket that you must print in order to show it inside the train.
Other places where you might buy your ticket: at the train station or at any ATM machine. It is advisable to buy your ticket before arriving in the station, as the seats are reserved (so, the sooner you buy, the better).
