Glad we did the card. I priced out the 3 attractions we wanted to do (Belem tower, Jeronimos monestary, Coach museum) and it was cheaper to do the card for 24 hours even if we didn’t do any transportation (which we did not). Since we didn’t “trigger” the card until 10am Tuesday, we also could have used it the next morning at Mafra palace at 9:30am but I didn’t think of that til after I bought the Mafra palace tickets. It was easy to find their booth in the airport…basically on your way out the door before we got a taxi. I searched up a picture of their booth so I could find it easier. Just make sure to look up the hours of the places you want to visit - our key attractions were closed Mondays.

The easiest way to get around town without having to worry about ticket line ups and pocket change We reserved the cards ahead of time and it was easy to redeem the voucher at the airport. In our case we actually had to return our rental car from a trip up North and planned to spend time in Lisbon. We were dropped off at the airport, grabbed our cards and hopped in the subway from there!

Definitely a must have if you like exploring many parts of Lisbon. While the tram was a delight, i don’t really like experiencing it over and over again as it can get crowded. The metro was also convenient. Save the hassle of always buying your tix. With this card, Lisbon is in your control.

It was worth it, because we used public transport a lot (which is great!) and it worked really well. It's worth mentioning that on Mondays many museums don't open, so stay tuned!

Really easy to pick up card. Used it multiple times to take trolley, bus, and train. Great perk to have entrance to attractions like the monastery and Belem tower included.
