    Try the link below, I printed a set of maps detailing all roads and location of toll registers.
    Easytoll looks the best way to go, you register your credit/debit card with your registration number at one of the entry points and your account will then be automatically charged . There are very few toll booths if any in many areas , your vehicle plate is clocked by arches at different points. You do risk a heav fine for non payment/avoidance.

    I am going into Portugal mid February and intent to use Easy toll.

    Lots of info on the web :thumb:
    Good luck

    Please be aware that there are two types of toll roads in Portugal.

    The old ones have booths which have pay stations. You pick up a ticket when you join it. These ones are shown on my sat nav.

    The new toll roads are not manned, do not appear as toll roads on Tomtom maps yet and are controlled by "electronic eyes" on overhead gantries.

    There are ways to pay on these latest types elsewhere on the site. I have local plates so I use a different system.
