You pay for the fuel, ferry, tolls etc - and o/n accom in Campanile type B&B and return flight and I will deliver/collect your car/van/truck from England for no fee. So, would cost you no more than if you drive yourself, but saves you the time and effort. I am retired ex truck driver/transport manager. I have done 2 similar jobs so far, 1 to Braga, near Porto and one to Kos (that was a while ago though). This is not a business, just gives me something to do. email - michaelnathan@btinternet.com Cheers - Mike

It seems I'm having trouble with my clutch or worse, the transmission in my 1999 Hyundai that normally runs great. That means that I've not needed a repair person since moving to Lisbon. Can someone suggest an honest, English speaking /understanding repair person? It does not matter where the repair person is located - Lisbon area anywhere. Thanks in advance. :)

My question is about driving and whether I should rent a car or take the Metro from the airport?  I'd like to see the highlights of the city but not with hassles driving and parking if that's going to be the case.

Hi everyone - we'll be relocating to Lisbon this summer for 1 year or more and will need to buy a car.      Are there local papers or site where I can look for private sales of vehicles?

Local discounts have been stopped for all 7 SCUT highways that were relying on discounts due to residence. However, it has now been announced that there is a 15% reduction in the toll price for everyone.   Additionally, there's a reduction for trucks of10% during the day, and 25% at night.   Source:http://www.dn.pt/inicio/portugal/interior.aspx?content_id=2801318

Departing Lisbon area on Tuesday 02/10.  If anyone in or around Lisbon needs a ride in the general direction of Valencia/Alicante regions, car running empty with space for up to four regular size adults (at a push) and reasonable luggage.  If this trip is of any help or interest, please get in touch.   Not a commercial transport offer.  Contribution to costs would be helpful and pleasant company appreciated.    Fancy a weekend in Benidorm?  Probably not!   Regards, Chris Shepherd

Needing info on the best way to get someone from the airport to Carnaxide. We're not with our own transportation yet, so a car is not possible. Anyone know what taxi fare might cost?

Just a reminder that there's another strike tomorrow - I wonder how transportation will be in the morning? Are trains running?
