Your long-haul options can take you to Rio de Janiero (GIG), in Brazil and you can see the direct influence Portugal has had on this South American country. Climb Sugarloaf Mountain, sunbathe on Ipanema Beach, and dance down the streets during Carnivale.

Where to find cheap flights from Portugal

For the budget-friendly flights, leaving from Lisbon (LIS) or Porto (OPO) is your best chance of finding the most choice when it comes to routes and prices.

Our biggest price-busting tip though is to keep your travel schedule flexible, especially if you are travelling last minute, as flights can vary dramatically in cost day-to-day. Avoid end-of-week and weekend flying, as these are popular times to travel and utilise our calendar tool to look over the full month for flights for the best chance of picking up a cheap ticket.
