Zapping Card

I'm going to Lisbon next Wednesday. Is the Zapping Card similar format to the Oyster Card in London?

Thanks

Basically, yes. Except it is on paper and not plastic, so take care of it.

LOL!!!

We went to Sintra today and looked like drowned rats by the end of it. 4/5 zapping cards toast by the time we hit the train station. We soaked everything we had. Many thanks to the kind train security team who understood our situation and let us get back to Lisbon. But really we could have swam back.

Store your card in a ziplock baggie when not used, or else ....

Update! We were able to dry our cards out for 24 hours and they were able to scan again. But good advice keep them dry!
