Europe is more fun with a Portugal Stopover.


Portugal’s myriad riches await, from surfing and wine to golf and mouthwatering cuisine. And the country’s flag carrier makes it easier than ever to discover all the delights with its stopover program. TAP Air Portugal allows travelers to add a free stopover in Lisbon or Porto from one to 10 days.


Eager to catch waves in Portugal? With TAP’s stopover offer, not only can travelers visit an additional destination, but they can also access exclusive offers and specials, like the current Surf in Portugal one. Surfing is a year-round option in Portugal and the country’s coastline boasts ample spots to surf, bodysurf, windsurf, kite surf and paddle surf in areas like Norte da Nazaré Beach, Carcavelos, Ericeira, Peniche and many more. With the Portugal Stopover surfing offer, take in two destinations and enjoy a 20 percent discount on surf lessons and special hotel prices. Partner surf schools honoring the discount include Fish Surf School, Lisbon Surf Tours and Onda Pura.


TAP operates 64 weekly, non-stop flight from North America to Lisbon (LIS), from nine gateway cities — Newark (EWR), New York (JFK), Boston (BOS), Washington, D.C. (IAD), Miami (MIA), Chicago (ORD), San Francisco (SFO), Toronto (YYZ) and Montréal (YUL) — and two weekly flights from Newark to Porto (OPO). TAP flies to more than 65 destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, including seven destinations in Portugal, 44 in Europe and the Middle East, and 15 in Africa.

The stopover is valid on outbound or returning trips. To book a stopover, first check if a selected route is eligible on the booking menu by inputting the cities of origin and destination, then clicking on “Add a Stopover.” Next, travelers can choose either Lisbon or Porto and complete the booking. When traveling on to another country, travelers pay no additional airfare with the Portugal Stopover program. An additional offered benefit lets travelers visit a second destination in Portugal at a 25 percent discount, allowing visitors to dig even deeper into the country’s culture with visits to regions like the Azores and Madeira.


Other current offers available with the Stopover program are sure to please any type of traveler, merging the incredible charms of Portugal with a variety of traveler interests. Oenophiles will enjoy a discount of 20 percent on a wine cellar tour in Lisbon or 15 percent off at Venâncio da Costa Lima Winery. Destinations like the Algarve entice golfers with limitless opportunities and fanatics of the sport can enjoy exclusive offers to play some of the country’s best courses. With a varied cuisine and an abundance of seafood, several gastronomy offers also give travelers something to look forward to.
