How is Stopover not penalized and considered part of the fare?

Before Portugal Stopover, upon voluntarily adding a stopover with a duration of over 24 hours, either in Lisbon or Porto, a fee would be added to the ticket. With Portugal Stopover, this fee is no longer applicable in these cases and no extra cost is added to the trip.

I checked the cost of the trip with and without Stopover and the prices are different. Why is this?

When simulating a trip without Stopover and another with Stopover, the flights of the two simulations are never the same. As a result, the available price classes and sub-classes may also be different, meaning that the respective prices could be different.

I have already booked my trip, but now I want to add a Portugal Stopover. Is this possible?

In order to find out if you are able to add a Stopover to your reservation, it is necessary that you contact our Contact Center in order to confirm the fare conditions to which your reservation maybe subjected. In this sense, you may verify the contacts of our Contact Center here.

I have booked my Stopover journey but I need to change my reservation. What do I need to do?
