Portuguese toll - specific question, help Ribeirasacra or anyone please?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I have read many posts about this topic in planning this trip last year but it seems things are updating frequently.
We will be driving from Sevilla to Lisbon in a couple of weeks time, staying in Lisbon for 5 days ( not planning on using car) then driving to Oporto ( for 3 nights) then driving car back to Oporto airport.
It is a Citroen lease car NOT rental but obviously still has foreign plates and MUST be dropped at airport.

Do I buy the 3 day "option for foreign registered vehicles" mentioned on the estradas site (pasted below) - and can I buy two of them - to cover first trip and then the second one to cover second trip? The second one probably won't cover the trip to Oporto airport though will it? (Driving to Oporto on the 20th June, from Oporto to airport on the 23rd.)

"3 days (light vehicles): Fixed cost of 20€, regardless of the number of journeys made in highways with electronic toll only. Maximum purchase of 6 titles per year."

Could we drive from Lisbon to Oporto on non toll roads ( and still have interesting scenic trip.)

We are quite happy to pay tolls but not sure how and would like to be prepared rather than panicked when we get there!

Thank you so much in advance.
