Trains to Portugal

Facts about Portugal

  • Currency: Euro (EUR)
  • Timezone: UTC
  • Language: Portuguese

Travelling by train to Portugal is relatively easy but does take time. Those who take the trouble discover a country which ranges from soft, green landscapes in the north to more arid terrain in the south. With historic cities, sandy beaches, tasty cuisine and reasonable prices, Portugal is a great country to discover by rail.

Take time to explore Lisbon, surely one of Europe's most appealing capital cities, before heading on to other historic cities. Three of our favourites are Guimaraes, Évora and Porto - all easily reached by direct Intercity trains from Lisbon, and each having a stunning city centre. All three feature on UNESCO's World Heritage List. And, for those more inclined to rural diversions, take the train which runs east from Porto up the Douro Valley to discover Portugal's premier wine region.

Most long-distance rail services in Portugal require seat reservations to booked in advance. These are not yet available on our site and apps but we can book your rail trip to Portugal, which inevitably concludes with a cross-border leg from Spain where our coverage is excellent. Our system will handle bookings for most direct trains from Spain to Portugal. These include the direct overnight services to Lisbon from Ávila, Burgos, Irun, Madrid, Medina del Campo, San Sebastián, Valladolid and Vitoria.

You can also book the new cross-border Celta service, which gives a very useful twice-daily link from Vigo (on the Galician coast of north-west Spain) to Porto, taking just 2 hrs 20 mins.
