Portugal’s main tourist attractions are its historic cities full of monuments and picturesque beaches overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The tourist season here lasts almost 6 months, but Portugal is worth visiting at any time of the year. Will the cost of the vacation also include tourist tax?

Is there a tourist tax in Portugal?

Taxes for tourists were introduced in Portugal as early as 2018, although initially the fee was only applicable in selected cities.Currently, such a local tourist tax is levied in cities such as Braga, Porto, Coimbra, Vila Nova de Gaia, Lisbon, Sintra, among others, but only people over 13 years of age pay it. The amount of the tax varies depending on the month – in high season, from April 1 to September 30, you pay €2, while from October to the end of March the fee is €1. The city tax is charged only for seven days, after which time the tourist no longer has to pay the fee.

Tourist taxes in seaside resorts

In 2023, Portugal introduced a tourist tax in Olhão, a popular tourist destination in the Algarve region. The tax is €2 per night, but only for the first seven days of your stay. The tax obligation does not apply to children under the age of 13. The coastal city of Portimão has also decided to introduce a tourist tax – it will be in effect from March 2024. This means that leisure-related prices in Portugal will go up from the new season. In the rest of the Algarve, such a fee is already in place and ranges from 1 to 2 euros, depending on the location and season.
