Flights to Portugal: Frequently Asked Questions

How can I find the cheapest flights to Portugal?

The best way to find cheap flights to Portugal depends on how flexible you are. Ideally, you should travel during off-peak times like mid week and late in the evening or early in the morning. Avoiding peak times will help you to find the best travel deals. Having said this, if you want to travel to Portugal within specific dates, you should seek to book two to three months in advance and set up Price Alerts ahead of time to check for price changes. Being flexible with your departure airport, or arrival airport, could also help you to find flight deals to Portugal.

How can I find Portugal flight deals?

If you are looking to find a great deal on flights to Portugal there are few approaches you can take. Firstly, if you have time to plan you can find the cheapest month and check that whole month for the cheapest travel dates to Portugal. Once you have done this, then you can either book at the current price, or set up a Price Alert and hold out for an even better deal!

If you are searching at the last minute, when flights tend to be more expensive, finding a Portugal flight deal could be more challenging. At this stage, we would recommend playing around with your departure and return dates, checking for airports near you with cheaper flight prices, and looking for last-minute sales on flights to Portugal.

How can I find cheap first class flights to Portugal?

First class flights to Portugal offer you an exclusive and high-end travel experience. With dedicated flight attendants, plenty of pampering and spacious surroundings, there is no doubt that First Class is a great way to fly – if you can afford it! To find cheap first class flights to Portugal here are our tips:

  1. Search for the cheapest month to fly first class to Portugal, and the cheapest dates within that month to travel. As with business and economy travel, there will be days where the same first class ticket is hundreds of dollars cheaper.
  2. Check if travelling from a nearby airport, with a different airline, will leave you paying less for your first class flight to Portugal.
  3. Sign up for the Skyscanner newsletter, and the newsletters of your preferred airlines to keep up to date with seat sales. You can also follow different airlines on Facebook, or other social media platforms to get the latest sale information.
  4. Since business travellers (and the elite) are most likely to be booking first class flights – it makes sense that you can often find cheap first class flights on non-business days and weeks. Try searching over weekends, public holidays, and even over Christmas and New Year’s to find cheap first class flights to Portugal.
  5. Joining airline loyalty and points programs can be a great way to get an upgrade – and get first class flights for less. If you have already purchased a business class seat, you can trade in points for a first class seat to Portugal. It’s important to remember though that these seats are a limited commodity, so it is worth contacting the airline which you have booked with as early as possible to see if any upgrade is available on your flight.
  6. As well as using points to upgrade, some airlines offer you the ability to bid for an upgrade. In these cases, you can make an offer on what you would be willing to pay to upgrade on your flight to Portugal. Of course, the higher you bid the greater your chances, but a lot of upgrade auctions have surprisingly low limits on what you can bid.

Who has the cheapest flights to Portugal?

The airline with the cheapest flights to Portugal will vary and depend on when you are planning to travel, and where you will be travelling from. To make sure that you have found the cheapest flight and best value airline when travelling to Portugal, we recommend being flexible with your dates – and even your departure airport. If you have a preferred airline and it is more expensive from your closest airport, considering nearby airports could help you find a similar flight to Portugal at a fraction of the cost. Alternatively, if you are just searching for the cheapest flight, using tools such as the Cheapest Month search and Price Alerts will help to facilitate this.
