TIME ZONE

Portugal operates on GMT + 0 hours.

LANGUAGE

Portuguese is the national language of Portugal. Vernacular speech contains borrowings from foreign languages, including English, so you may hear some familiar words in everyday speech. People whose work brings them into contact with visitors from overseas are generally excellent English speakers, especially in the resort areas of the Algarve.

CURRENCY INFORMATION

The Euro is the national currency of Portugal. The Euro is divided into 100 Cents. Coins are available in 1 cent, 2 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 20 cent, 50, cent , €1 & €2 denominations. Notes are available in €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200, €500 denominations.

MONEY MATTERS

Major credit cards are widely accepted (though American Express less so) and ATM access is widespread. Travellers cheques however might not be accepted everywhere.

TIPPING IN PORTUGAL

Like most European countries, tipping in restaurants is common, with a recommended 10% on a discretionary basis according to service. Check that a service charge has not been added to your bill before deciding whether to tip. Taxi drivers do not usually expect a tip but it is common practice and considered polite to round up taxi fares.

WEATHER IN PORTUGAL

Portugal enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and cool, occasionally wet winters. Summer temperatures can reach the upwards of 90 degrees Fahrenheit and sun protection in the form of sun cream, a sun hat and lightweight clothing is recommended.

CLOTHING IN PORTUGAL

Style is fairly casual throughout Portugal though in more rural areas and during Easter more conservative dress may be observed, for example, covered shoulders. Cathedrals, churches and other religious sites require conservative dress. Both sexes should cover their arms, legs and shoulders. Cotton and other light fabrics are comfortable choices for summertime as the heat can be extreme during summer months. You are advised to take lightweight light coloured items, including a sun hat to protect your skin from the affects of sun damage. Spring and autumn temperatures dictate light to medium-weight clothing selections and in winter you will need a pullover and jacket. When dining at better restaurants and for any special occasion during your journey, dress is more formal. For gentlemen, a “jacket and tie” standard is appropriate, with an equivalent standard of eveningwear for ladies. Some golf courses have a dress code and you are advised to check in advance. Your Abercrombie & Kent Villas Consultant will be happy to assist.
