"in lagos" as in within the city.

"from Lagos", let's say for example, to Portimao and/ or Sagres.

In the Algarve I usually reckon on €3.25 for the first kilometre then €1 for each kilometre afterwards. Those prices are increased by 20% after 10pm and all day at weekends and on holidays.

Their default 50 cents per km is way too low, but why waiting time? Unless stuck in traffic of course.

So from Lagos to Portimão 23km @ 1 Euro plus 1km at €3,25 = €26,25

The bus fare is €4,05, train fare €2,00.

I tried Albufeira to Ferreiras, for the station, 7km and it actually says 9.25 minutes waiting time in the calculation. Why? The trip takes about 7 minutes and costs 8 Euros weekday daytimes.

Thank you all. I'm presuming that taxi charges on the Algarve do not vary greatly from town to town.

Good question. I'm led to believe they charge extra.

"I'm presuming that taxi charges on the Algarve do not vary greatly from town to town."

Would someone local to Lagos be able to confirm this?
