When on holiday in the Algarve there are a number of options for transport to and from the apartment you rent.

Trains
 
International trains run from Paris-Lisbon (Sud Express), between Lisbon-Madrid. The three main companies running services between major European cities are Oporto (Inter-Norte), Lisbon (Inter-Centro) and Faro (Inter-Sul).

Nationally, there are Express trains and regional trains (Inter-cidades and Inter-regionais) connecting all main areas of the Algarve and Portugal. These can work out well for scenic, easy holiday transport.
 

 

First and second class are available except for local and suburban trains. You can also purchase a special tourist ticket (valid for 7, 14 or 21 days). There are also special rates on "Blue Days" which offer return tickets with discount for trips over 100 km. If you are over the age of 65 you may need some ID but can be eligible for discounts.

Buses and Trams  

There are good transport options in place allowing you to travel freely around the Algarve without needing to rent a car or find parking near your apartment. Buses and trams operate in the cities and charge a flat fare. In Lisbon and Oporto there are special tourist tickets at Carris (Lisbon) and the Lisbon Underground or STCP (Oporto) information kiosks, open form 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

"We had a bus stop right by our apartment and made the most of it, we spent a lot of the holiday outside the apartment but found it very easy travelling around the area" Barbara UK

Your Algarve holiday apartment should be well located to ensure you dont have to travel to far to make the most of the Algarve on your holiday. Most apartment locations ensure that bus, train or car rental allows a fully flexible journey around the Algarve.
