​Your Porto.CARD includes a card for discounts and free entries, which will be activated after the date and time written on the card indicating that you want to start using the card. You just need to show it at the various places to be able to benefit from all its advantages. On the options with public transport, the transport ticket Andante Tour is activated the first time you validate it at one of the card validation machines, at stations or in the transport itself. You always need to validate the card at the beginning of your journey, or when you change lines or modes of transport. In the case of the 2-day (48 hour) Porto.CARD, we suggest you keep the two transport cards separate, or write on them in pen (day 1 and day 2), so that you can always be sure which card has already been validated.

Up to 4 years is not worth it since most activities are free of charge. From the age of 5 it depends on the activities you want to do with the children. Many museums already offer free admission or special discounts to children. Please inquire before your visit. The Porto.CARD is worth buying for children, especially if you intend to take sightseeing tours or visit theme parks. In public transport from the age of 4, children pay the same fare as the adults in the daily transport tickets, reason why it can be worth to purchase the card for children from that age and over.​

​Many museums and attractions already offer big discounts to senior citizens (65+). However, if you intend to go on tours, do some shopping or eat in restaurants, the Porto.CARD offers significant savings.

Senior citizens have no discount on public transport with the Adante Tour, so you only have to gain by buying a Porto.CARD with the travel option.

​The Porto.CARD is designed for individuals. However, if you order 20 or more cards, you will benefit from a 10% pre-VAT discount. This discount can only be obtained if you purchase the cards in person at a Tourism Office or when purchased from info@visitportoandnorth.travel

​Generally, each offer or discount on the Porto.CARD can only be used once. However, some restaurants and shops allow you to use the discount more than once. You will need to ask at each place if this is the case.

​Whilst your card is valid, you can use your travel card as much as you want. Please do not forget that you need to validate the travel card at the start of each journey, and when you change lines or modes of transport.
