getting to airport early sunday

I need to be at the airport by about 0600 on Sunday for a 0730 flight, is taxi the only option?

I think so. The metro doesn't start running until around 630am. The airport special buses don't start until 0700.

There is an all night bus (route 208) once an hour from the city, if you can figure out the timetable for it! Also, it does go a rather a long way around.

Forget the bus, go by taxi.

We were in the same situation, needing to leave Lisbon by 5am. Out landlady said we would not need a booked taxi, there would be plenty on the streets but we booked nevertheless.

Result, heaps of people out and about and heaps of taxis. Our booked one showed up at 5am and cost at about €30 from Baiaxa.

€ 30 from baixa to airport? what a rip-off!

10 to 15, the maximum!

And yes, call for a taxi, the day before. They will be there on time if scheduled.

Two major companies operating in Lisbon:

Telexaxis: +351 218111100

RadioTaxis: +351 218119000

Both, 24/7 available numbers.

Give those numbers to hotel reception and they will call it for you the day before.

I use always the first one, when i need to go from home to the airport.

And always use meter, and not pay more than the meter (bags and calling will add extra 2-3 euros to bill)

Don't expect top quality service and top friendly drivers, for that you have private transfers, just google it.
