We now have tolls in the Algarve, if you are hiring a car please ensure that you ask your car hire provider what their policy is for toll payments before you leave the airport. Some car hire providers may suggest that you use the EN125 as there are no tolls on this road but it is very busy and in our opinion the A22 is a much faster and safer route, the tolls are not expensive but it’s important that you know how to pay.
