For foreigners, Portimão is really close to FARO AIRPORT. There are a lot of lowcost airlines flying for that. It's in one of the most visited regions in Europe for beach tourism. I offer myself to help every people from the board that wants to attend this show.

I study there. As I said before, I will be glad to help you out in your travel to Lisbon. I can get you a room in my house here. Not 5 stars but not bad at all. But we will have to travel by train 3 hours to get to the venue. And I can select a few hotel options for you near portimão for the night after the show, I will sleep there too, if this shows got oficially confirmed.
It will be my pleasure to help you.

btw: wtf is up with flight to portugal it's like impossible to find reasonable flights, like 3 layovers and shit and expensive wtf?

Thanks, I'll probably get a hotel non the less I don't like to be in the way bla bla bla.
But: what you could help me with is like I said a google maps link that shows the entrance to the venue. That would be awesome. I could do the rest from there.

So it's a 3 hour trainride from the city where the show is to Lisboa. Good to know.. Getting a flight that meets my "buisenss" needs of 7th Friday afternoon and 9th Sunday after noon that still arrives in Hungary on Sunday is gonna be a bitch. Maybe if I do a layover in Paris I'll sleep at my aunts house.

blah this is gonna be a bitch to set up, and expensive but I really wanna see the Offspring in Spain or Portugal :)

no what I meant was not fly to Lisbon and go to FAO with train but fly into FAO. How far is FAO airport from the venue?

I was talking about that. there aren't direct flights to FAO from Hungary...

FAO is a bit far away. 70 km ! Lisbon is 250 km away

Ok looks like I have one of two choices:

I can fly out with tap for like 400 euros on a direct flight between BUD and LIS at 3pm on Friday and fly back on Sunday at 3.20 PM (which means I have to be at the airpot at 2pm latest which means I have to leave at 11 am, which sucks because it's just too early to get enough sleep, but managable.

Or I can take the same flight out to LIS fly over to FAO and arrive at 8:30 PM then fly out from FAO at 11 am on the 9th which means I have to be at FAO airpot at 9:30.. this sucks. Add to that 2 layovers and like 14 hours of travelling and waiting at aiports where as the Lisboa one is direct. That's 100 EUROs more expensive so 500 EUROs, and FAO being 70km away from the venue is a real bitch!

How reliable are the trains and how much do they cost?

How reliable are the trains and how much do they cost?TRAIN is really good and reliable. Cost it will be : 18.50 euros the most reliable. 17 euros the one that always has some delays.

Well.. I don't know these schedules are a bit too tight for me. I'll see what I can do... maybe driving back after the show to Lisboa and staying at a hotel near the airpot is the solution. If they have late check in/check out options. I really don't know but I have some more studying to do and an exam tomorrow morning so this'll have to wait. I busted over an hour on it as is :)

I can take the direct flight home at 15:20 that's better, the issue is getting to the airport on Sunday.. I'd rather stay Friday night in Faro, I like to do the least amount of travelling on the day of the show. But thanks for the advice.. it'd be nice to see the google map of where the venue will be tho, that'll make planning easier for me :)
