Portugal & Azores

Portugal pricing guide

Most families travelling to mainland Portugal will choose to self-drive. Ask us about other options if you would prefer private transfers.

Price guidelines

Most families travelling to mainland Portugal will choose to self-drive. As a general guideline, a two-week itinerary for a family of four will cost from around £8,800 including accommodation, car hire, and a range of activities. If you want to upgrade accommodation, prices will start from around £10,000 for a family of four.

A short break to the island of Madeira for a family of four usually costs from £5,200 plus flights, depending on the accommodation, with flights from £125 per person.

The Azores are more expensive, partly because itineraries here tend to be packed with activities and require a guide, equipment and transport. An 8-day itinerary for a family of four will start from around £7,200.

In all cases, we are always happy to tailor our suggestions to your budget.

International flights

All prices exclude international flights, which start from £200pp during school holidays. Flight prices at other times can be extremely cheap, sometimes as low as £50pp.

Many of the main flight routes to Portugal from the UK are operated by budget airlines that operate flexible pricing policies. Generally the earlier you book, the better. Most will operate for the summer season but may stop over the winter.

Age suitability

There are no age limits on any of our holidays. We will tailor the itinerary to the ages of your children and can accommodate everyone!
