In Portugal, much like in Spain and France, tolls are collected through various concessionaires. As a basic principle, all vehicles are subject to tolls. The system of toll collection in Portugal is very complex, and includes many important details which should be taken into account.
On a portion of the motorways, toll collection is performed electronically. As a result, settling tolls on-site using cash or a credit card is not possible. On other routes, by contrast, drivers will encounter the classic toll booths at which the tolls can be paid in cash or with a credit card.
Non-Portuguese vehicles equipped with an on-board unit, as well as companies which register in advance and make an advance lump sum settlement before entering the Portuguese toll network, can be sure they're on the safe side. In all cases, however, drivers should inform themselves comprehensively about their intended routes and the settlement of toll charges.
