We purchased a Via Verde device for a trip this weekend at CTT for our Portuguese registered car. After purchase, we were instructed to go to a Multibanco ATM and validate the device. We've been trying to do so since Friday evening and it still will not validate. Going under the gantries, the device beeped but while at the manual tool booths, we didn't trust it, took it down and paid our toll. My husband was a bit worried about going through the Via Verde lane and getting a ticket for a device that might not be recognised!Has any one else had problems like this? We've contact the Via Verde "help" line, but all they told us to do was to use the device!
Required Urgently - Can anyone recommend a garage / mechanic that can repair gas converted camper (gas / petrol), located near San Antonio or willing to travel to that area? Insurers have been unable to locate anyone in the area & Camper may have to be re-patriated back to UK at great cost!! Any help greatly appreciated!!!!!!!
Hi I've started a new business in Portugal... I'm currently in the UK and planning on moving to PT (Lisboa area) within the year.My business partner (in PT) and myself are considering having a car for the business... something that we both can use... she on a daily basis, an me when I visit from time to time.I am considering going the Leasing route, however there does not seem to be much information about leasing options in PT.. or even many companies that do this.Speaking to one company they kept talking about renting a car...So, is anyone able to shed any light on this for me, please? What is the difference between Leasing and ALD and renting?All I want to do is get a car, pay for it for 12-24 months and give the car back and swap for another.. with insurance, and maintenance taken care of by the company we are paying.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
