TAP’s popular Portugal Stopover program has been improved with more benefits to provide customers with even more opportunities to explore Portugal before heading to their final destination. With the expanded program customers can now choose to stopover on their return home.

TAP customers can add Portugal to their trip with a free stopover of up to 10 days, with exclusive offers and discounts with over 290 participating partners that will help make their visit unforgettable. Offers and specials include hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, museums and countless activities, that have been organized in partnership with Visit Portugal. From discounts on surfing in areas such as Penicheto wine cellar tours in Lisbon to offers to play at exclusive golf courses, TAP’s Stopover program truly offers something for everyone. 

An additional benefit allows customers to visit a second destination in Portugal at a 25% discount on air fare, allowing visitors to dig even deeper into the country’s culture with visits to regions such as Porto and the North, the Algarve or Madeira and the Azores. Customers can book through a promotional code that can be used on TAP’s website (www.flytap.com) or at travel agencies.

The Portugal Stopover program is available for all markets in which TAP operates, though was designed with TAP’s key long-haul markets of North America and Brazil in mind. With direct flights from Boston, Chicago, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Washington in the US and Toronto and Montreal from Canada, TAP customers can fly to more than 65 destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with a Lisbon or Porto, or additional Portugal destination experience along the way.

The Portugal Stopover program, launched in July 2016, allows customers whose final destination is not Lisbon or Porto, but who make a stopover in one of these cities, to enjoy, on the outward or return leg, a stopover in Portugal – which can now be up to ten nights – at no additional cost in the fare. Customers can find out more about the Portugal Stopover program and explore the different offers and specials by visiting the dedicated Stopover page (www.flytap.com/stopover). 

Visit Portugal is joining and contributing to the TAP Portugal Stopover program to encourage more customers to visit Portugal and discover various regions of the country. Customers can take advantage of the opportunities and benefits that the program offers through the expertise and collaboration of the regions and easily build an attractive and diverse journey during their visit.
