TAP Portugal Stopover Programme Brings Additional 214,000 Tourists to Portugal

TAP Air Portugal has said its Portugal Stopover Programme was used by 214,000 tourists last year, who used it to squeeze in an extra holiday while ultimately en route to another destination, and boosted Portugal’s visitor numbers in the process.

The Portugal Stopover programme allows TAP customers to travel to two destinations for the price of one, by including a stopover of between one to ten days in Lisbon or Porto, on the outward or return journey.

Nearly half of all users were en route to Brazil.

TAP also provides a second stopover in Portugal during the Stopover period, offering a 25% discount on any domestic flight. Therefore, passengers making a stopover in Lisbon or Porto can also visit another Portuguese region during the stopover period (e.g. Azores, Madeira) with a 25% discount on the domestic flight.

Portugal Stopover customers have access to exclusive offers and discounts at 149 partners across the country, including hotels, restaurants, activities, tours, museums and cultural spaces, shopping and services, among others.

TAP’s Portugal Stopover Programme was recognised in 2023, for the fifth consecutive year, as the best in the world by the US magazine Global Traveler.
