Campervans: Equipped and ready for adventure

When you hire a campervan in Lisbon you can be on the road right away, trusting that your roadsurfer home on wheels is fully stocked. Your campervan comes with an awning, camping table and two chairs to enjoy the space outside of your vehicle. The kitchen box allows you to save money on eating out: you’ve got all the pots, pans, and utensils to cook up your own meals. There’s even a corkscrew and bottle opener, and a cafetière plus mugs for your morning coffee or tea, although you’ll want to bring dish towels, sponges, and eco-friendly dish soap. When you rent a small motorhome from Lisbon you will need to bring your own bedding, or you can hire what you need from the station. Full details of what’s included and our suggestions on what to bring along to your Lisbon campervan holiday can be found in the equipment list.

Best time to hire a campervan in Lisbon

The best time to rent a campervan in Lisbon is March to May and September to October, when the weather is beautiful and it is generally less crowded. Of course, with 300 days of sunshine each year and the right clothing, you can visit Lisbon throughout the year, especially during the off-season in winter (if you don’t mind the quieter vibe). Plus, campsites, restaurants, and tourist attractions are cheaper during the off-season. Film festivals take place during September and October, and there is always a street event whatever the season. In June, the 13th is the day of St Anthony, Lisbon’s patron saint and a day celebrated throughout the city.

→ Ready to hit the road and learn to surf? We recommend the SAL surf school at Carcavelos beach which is a 35 minute drive from our roadsurfer station. They also offer stand up paddling classes as well as surf and paddle board rentals.

  • Edifício Intermarché, R. Dom Afonso de Albuquerque, 2690-340 Santa Iria de Azoia

Parking in Lisbon

Known as the city of the 7 hills, the streets of Lisbon are relatively steep and narrow (as well as very busy with cars and pedestrians). We highly recommend parking your roadsurfer campervan rental in the secure car park near the port in Rua da Cintura where you can also stay overnight. Parking costs €6 for 24 hours.

Paying tolls in Portugal

Motorways in Portugal are toll roads. They are either equipped with booths to pay on-site or are electronic toll roads:

  • Payment on-site: You can pay the toll conventionally at the exit of most roads. Please pay attention to the signs marked with a “V” (Via Verde) on green background, as those are reserved for people with transponders, and you should not drive on these roads if you don’t have one.
  • Electronic toll roads: Our campervans with Portuguese plates are already registered on the electronic toll system. You can check your outstanding payments on this website by inputting the number plate. Please keep in mind that it can take up to 48 hours until it appears in the system. Alternatively, payments can be made at post offices and shops marked with “Payshop” flags.
  • If you are driving from outside of Portugal, it is important to register the car on the Easytoll system. As soon as you enter Portugal, you will pass through a toll booth. There is an entrance for non-Portuguese vehicles on the side where you will receive a receipt with an identification number and your number plates. When you drive through electronic toll roads, your plate will be scanned. From then onwards, the process is the same as for the Portuguese number plates mentioned above.
  • Alternatively, you can register digitally with Easytoll before you enter the country. The time you are allowed to spend on toll roads is limited and spending the night at a rest stop is not advisable.

There are also free roads, marked with “EN” but the travelling time might double if you choose them.
