Portugal/Spain Driving

Hi all

Come April we'll be venturing over to Central Portugal from the UK, via Santander to scout out a retirement area.

Driving from Santander to Castello Branco seems to involve 3 A-roads, which I assume are Toll Roads. Will one Toll Tag / payment system do both countries? What do people recommend for either/both countries, for a one-off trip this year?

Regards

Via Verde transponders can be used on the toll roads in Portugal and Spain. I recall someone once mentioning another company that offers transponders which work through most of western Europe but I can't remember the name of the company.

Emovis-tag or Eurotoll will both cover you in Spain and Portugal.

Can't advise on which is best as not used personally.

Great suggestions, thanks all!

Reading more in to it, it looks like the E-80 from Santander is no longer a toll route, so I'll only need it for a short stretch down to Castello Branco, in which case I think I prepaid card will probably do it this time around.

Will review again when we travel more.

🙂
