Cost of Uber From Porto Airport to City Centre


A sommelier and a wine tour guide. I travel all around Portugal collecting the best wineries to visit, best places to stay and eat.

I organize wine tours in the Douro Valley.

Is Uber in Porto?

Yes, Uber operates in the city of Porto and its surroundings.

You can use your Uber application that you use elsewhere, in Portugal.  There is no need to download anything else.

It is my impression that Porto has many Uber cars and in general wait times are quite short.

You can easily get a car through Uber and Bolt even in the middle of the night.  I find these apps very convenient for my early morning airport rides.

Is Uber in Porto Airport?

Uber picks up in the Porto Airport.

You can call a car using your Uber application as soon as you have passed customs control.  Drivers typically arrive in 1 or 2 minutes to the Arrivals area.

As you exit the airport at the Arrivals area, cross the taxi lane and catch your Uber

I suggest not calling Uber before you leave the airport building as the cars cannot wait for you in the limited time kiss-and-ride area.

All Uber cars in Portugal are visibly marked TVDE on the front window indicating that they are private vehicles with licensed drivers working through applications.

Is Uber Cheap in Porto?

Uber is relatively inexpensive in Porto compared to the United States and other European countries.

From my experience, a ride within the town core costs around 3 to 4 euros. 

A  20-minute ride from Porto to Matosinhos would be around 11-12 euros.

The cost of using Uber in Porto can vary depending on factors such as distance, time of day, and demand. 

What is the Cost of Uber From Porto Airport to the City Center?

Porto Airport (Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport) is located approximately 11 kilometers (7 miles) northwest of the city center of Porto. The distance between Porto Airport and the city can be covered in around 20-30 minutes by car, depending on traffic conditions. 

On a regular day, a price of Uber from Porto airport to the city center is 12-16 euros.

Alternatives to Uber in Porto

Bolt is another popular taxi app.  I find Bolt prices in Porto to be mostly on par with Uber, but sometimes they are a bit cheaper.  It is worth checking both apps.

Private transfer from the airport to Porto is a good alternative if you have luggage or kids.
