Be aware of the following: although the schedule is still on their webpage, since 2 years ago they discontinued the bus link between Lisbon airport and Cascais.

Metroline is not suitable at the moment as the closest metro station is not yet within walking distance from the airport.

The only options now are the following:

1 - bus + train - By far the cheapest option and not difficult to do.
The link between the airport and Cais do Sodré train station (near the river Tejo) can be with Aerobus (25-30 min shuttle bus 3,00 euro running until 8:45pm) or (normal and slow 45 min) bus # 91 (1,45 euro).

From there the train to Cascais (30 min). Prices of train : single (1,45 euro), 10 trips (15,30 euro), and multi-trips ticket (5 days, 13,60 euro).
There are ticket machines in all train stations (operating with banknotes and coins).

Note: there's a nother tip about train line with train timetable link.

2- taxi – there are 2 options: you buy a voucher at the information desk at the airport arrival (main lobby after customs) which costs 44,18euro weekdays until 8:30 pm, and 53,00 euro after that period and weekends;
Alternatively you can take a “normal” taxi and they will run the taximeter + toll on the highway (motorway, freeway whatever you call it) which is roughly the same price (you can ask before entering the car but never accept the ride if they ask you more than 53 euro).

3 - there’s a mix alternative - taxi from airport to Cais do Sodré (not more than 15euro and only 10 min out of rush hours) + train.
