Portugal - moving around the country
You can book a taxi in the cities. When traveling out of town, you will have to pay not only for the kilometers it takes to get there, but also for the trip back to the place of departure of the taxi. At night, the tariff increases by at least 20 percent. In Portugal, it is customary to leave tips for taxi drivers, at least 10 percent of the cost of the trip. You will also have to pay for the overall cargo. Lovers of sea transport can enjoy themselves by traveling by ferry to coastal regions and towards the islands of Portugal. There are also cruise liners, yachts and boats. If there is a need to quickly reach the islands, it is better to use air transport.
