    I'm sorry, however, tickets for trains in Portugal are only able to be issued as paper documents that would have to be shipped to you.

    The method of ticketing depends on the train/route.

    With European rail travel, many tickets are still only able to be issued as paper documents that would have to be shipped to you.

    Currently, only tickets for trains in certain parts of Europe are able to be issued as e-tickets (in the form of print-at-home and/or print-at-station tickets). This includes domestic trains operating within the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Germany, and France, as well as some internationally operating trains between France and neighboring countries or Germany and neighboring countries. For all other trains, tickets are only able to be issued as physical documents that would have to be shipped to you prior to your departure.

    If tickets for a particular train are able to be issued as print-at-home or print-at-station tickets, then the option would display for you at the first step of the checkout process.

    You would purchase tickets from Lisbon to Albufeira by searching the route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    It is also important to note that trains between Lisbon and Albufeira require reservations as a supplement to the ticket; however, the Portuguese national rail network has not enabled their trains to be reserved from anywhere outside the country. Reservations for trains in Portugal can only be purchased at the CP offices in the stations. The cost would only be a small cost in addition to the ticket. When you go to purchase your reservation, just be sure to mention that you already have the ticket.
