    If you want to have an unlimited source of information about motorhome parkings in the Algarve (or Europe for that matter) check out the site or app from the Dutch motorhome club: http://www.campercontact.com/en/

    Just signed up with my CC today, the only bit I saw in English was the word foreigners on the sign pointing to the electronic toll booth at the service station on the A28 past Viana do Castelo ! Also the system did not recognise my number plate I only knew this as it said 'error' on the receipt.So I had to press the assist button on the machine and get them to marry up the reg no with the reciept number, luckily it was quiet. So make sure the reg number has been recognised by the camera system. Its all a bit confusing if you dont do your homework, I had thanks to the good people on here. I did try and buy a card from a post office but they only had ones for €40 so I decided to use the CC system instead. Portugal needs to get its act together better with sinage for the toll system. Anyway I did not mind paying as the thought of driving through mist and driving rain on dodgy Portugese side roads with even dogier Portuguese drivers was worth the toll price! Hopefully it will stop raining in the north soon as my van has not been dry for 7 days :sick:
