Portugal in May : Travel budget & tourist seasons.


Budget your trip depending on your departure time.

Beyond the tourist season (low, medium or high season) of the destination country, prices of your flight, hotel or all-inclusive stays may also vary depending on the demand in your country (our rates are evaluated from western Europe).

Thus, from western Europe, a stay will often be more expensive for a start during the school holidays.

In May, here's what you can expect on average:

  • All-inclusive stays: 600 € / week

  • Round-trip flight: 130 €

  • Tourist season: low

Portugal: Climate & Weather


The climate is generally temperate and the Atlantic influence contributes with a certain mildness and humidity on the coast and beyond. The temperatures show a significant difference in the inland areas where summers can be scorching and winters are harsh.

In the south, winters are milder and the sea water temperature is ideal for swimming. The Algarve is an area you can visit throughout the year, but the rest of the country is more pleasant in autumn and spring.
