Our chauffeur, Margarida, will wait for you in airport (with your name on board) and escort you to the flat. Estimated travel time: 15 minutes. Price for the taxi up to four persons; typically 14-15 Euros – 20 Euros is maximum (so she operates with taximetre and it will typically charge 14-15 Euros – however there is a ceiling of 20 Euros). Write Margarida at taxilxmar@gmail.com, or call or send sms to +351 96 571 33 55, if you wish this option.

Take a taxi - better from the departure terminal than arrival (!) - to the Museo do Fado and walk the last 2-3 minutes to the flat (it is impossible to drive all the way to the door). The taximetre starts at, at least 2.5 Euros and on top of that you pay at least 1.60 Euros for luggage going in the trunk (independently of how much you fill it up and how many pieces of luggage you have).

Lisbon is one of the safest cities in Europe
http://www.visitingportugal.com/blog/lisbon-safest-city-in-europe/

However, of course you need to take precautions - for instance by locking your door with key - also at night.

Use the dehumidifier function of your AC unit.

In winter occupation rates are low and weather humid, but your mere presence normally helps.

You can also air out flat during drier days.

Please check that the water heater is plugged.

If it is, it might be due to power interruption after which water needs time to heat.

If after a couple of hours there is no hot water, then please contact booking@lisbonoasis.com
