We have now purchased a gorgeous little cottage in Alvaiazere and will be flying out permanently on 6th August.
We are selling our car in England, so are looking for a simple runabout petrol car- for about 2 thousand euros.If anyone knows any dealers or private sellers with a car available from 7th August, can you please let us know.
Also.....does anyone know of a taxi firm which does transfers from Lisbon Airport to Alvaiazere...again for the 6th August...just after 8pm.
Many thanks. Helen

Helen........try and buy diesel. It's so much cheaper than petrol in Portugal. Pingo Doce, which is like Asda, have theirs at 1.14 (euros) a litre and petrol at 1.45. It's only Britain that has the motoring public over with much more expensive diesel compared to petrol.

1.14 per litre is 5.18 euros a gallon or £3.17 at today's x/c rate, compared to £5.70 per gallon of diesel in the U.K.

Have a look at Portugal Anúncios Classificados OLX for a feel of car prices, and also Standvirtual - O Nº1 em Carros Usados, Carros Baratos Car prices here for old 2nd hand stuff may make your eyes water, but on the plus side, there's no rust.

Hi,

No to the taxi as i always get the train from the main line station on the road in front of Lisbon Airport (about a 15 min walk downhill) to Pombal then a taxi from Pombal station.

I can offer the name of a garage to be avoided at all costs. PM me, I am not ready to publish their name openly as I am still in negotiations with them.
