Lisbon to Oporto journeys from just €5- 27 March

CP - Comboios de Portugal is launching a new special offer campaign tomorrow 27 March,...

... identical to the one it ran in January offering around 80% off Alfa Pendular (turística) and Intercidades (2nd class) journeys.

There are only a limited number of these discount seats per train but there will be a total of 9,000 seats available in all. The tickets can be bought between 10 and 60 days in advance for journeys between5 April and 31 May this year.

The special offer covers all Alfa Pendular and Intercidades destinations such as Lisbon - Oporto from €5 on Intercidades and €6.50 on Alfa Pendular; Lisbon - Covilhã from €3.50; Lisbon - Guarda and Lisbon - Faro from €4.50 or Lisbon - Braga and Lisbon - Guimarães from €5.50, among others.

The success of the previous campaign contributed towards greater demand for the long-distance services, which sold 43,000 more journeys in January this year than in the same month in 2017.
