Driving in Lisbon

Before you rent a car in Lisbon, there are a few things you should know:

* Portuguese drive on the right side of the road
* The use of safety belt is always compulsory
* Driving and drinking is not recommended. When you drive the legal maximum alcohol level is restricted to 0.5g/l, the equivalent of a small beer
* Usually, vehicles approaching from the right have priority, except when the signs tell the contrary.

Lisbon can be quite confusing and traffic jams are very common on its streets.

Stay within the legal speed requirements and remember that drinking and driving is an offence throughout Europe. We recommend you take your time - wear your seatbelts - take it easy - and enjoy the beauty of Lisbon.
