Transfers from Lisbon Airport to Ericeira

Hi folks, I am flying into Lisbon with my family on 9th August and was wondering what is the best option for transferring from the airport to our apartment in Ericeira.

I understand that with the new metro link only official taxis are allowed to pick up from the airport and no private transfers are allowed.

I have checked some companies out but the sites either seem dodgy or will not deliver us to our apartment complex but only the nearest hotel - ( travelrepublic.com )

I would prefer to only use one method of transport rather than get the metro to the main bus Station- Campo Grande and then a bus from there to Ericeira as, that again, will not drop us at our apartment complex

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Even if it is just to confirm how much we should expect to pay when using the official taxis. I have been told to make sure they always use the meter and not to accept the 'special price' !!! that maybe offered ?

I highly recommend Lisbon Taxis.

info@lisbontaxis.com.pt

Lisbon Taxis gets very positive reviews on TA. Pedro was wonderful to deal with.

We walked out from collecting our baggage and there was a sign with our name on it. The driver escorted to the car and had us to our hotel downtown Lisbon in no time.

Fantastic service. Highly recommend. Not sure about Lisbon to Ericeira, but it's worth a try.

Not sure if anyone will read this but have returned form a great stay in Portugal and wanted to update my findings.

Firstly, as you say, private transfers ARE allowed from Lisbon Airport and we actually booked our transfer to and from Ericeira through HolidayTaxis.com via a link from the EasyJet site.

Did cost us a fraction over £200 for the journeys there and back and they were excellent. Although I am sure you can do it more cheaply but it was our first visit and we wanted the security/knowledge that the transfer was sorted prior to our visit. We were taken to and from Ericeira in an nice air conditioned Mercedes Vito

If you are happy to get the Metro from the Airport you can head over to the bus station @ Campo Grande which will only cost a couple of Euros and then catch the bus to Ericeira for just over 5 Euros

If you catch the Ericeira bus A8 it's much quicker than the A21 as it only stops once and gets you to and from Ericeira in approx 40-45 minutes .. The A21 goes via the backroads and stops a lot more often and takes approx 1hr 15 minutes

The disadvantage of doing this is that you may then have a long walk to your hotel/apartment and Ericeira is hilly unless you're in the centre

We stayed at an apartment in Rua Mato Da Eira which was at the back of the town/village and approx a hilly 15 minute walk into the centre/bus station

Was a good location though as we had a suprb bakery and 3 supermarkets - Aldi, Lidl & Mini Preco 10 minutes walk away
