Quicker and simplified reservation process

By carrying out transactions on TAP Air Portugal websites, the User agrees to use the reservation area only for reservations or legitimate purchases for themselves or third parties, providing they have authorization or the legal right to do so.
The use of a credit or debit card implies that the User is the holder and is legally old enough to use it. The use of a credit or debit card by someone who is not the cardholder implies that the User has obtained the cardholder’s permission. The credit or debit card holder is always responsible for ensuring payment of charges made using their card.
The User must not interfere in any way with the operation or functioning of the reservation area, or of any other area available via TAP Air Portugal websites.
The User furthermore agrees to comply with the terms and conditions, and is responsible for all expenses, commissions, taxes, and other costs that may arise from using TAP Air Portugal websites and/or its systems and reservation and purchasing areas.
Reserving additional services
At any time, you may add additional and complementary reservations of services to your flight reservation, for example hotel accommodation, car rental, among others. (See here for all available services). You may also directly add hotel accommodation or car rental.
Cancellations, Refunds, and Invoices
Have your travel plans changed? With the online refund feature you can cancel your reservation up to 24 hours prior to departure and request a refund of your ticket price. The option will be available if your fare allows flexible and available reservation changes. Depending on the conditions of the fare, you can then file a refund request.
Seat selection and reservation
TAP Air Portugal makes it possible for you to reserve your seat in advance, either before traveling or during check-in. You can choose your seat directly while reserving your flight or at any time afterwards by accessing your TAP Account or when checking-in online.
Reserve Special Meals
A varied selection of special meals is available on TAP Air Portugal operated flights for passengers with special dietary requirements or preferences.
Signing up to and using a TAP Account means that the Customer’s personal data will be made available. This includes identification and contact details, data on reservations, and purchases made through the TAP Store.
Personal data will be processed by TAP, as the responsible entity, to managing TAP Accounts. All data classed as mandatory during the registration process are required for management of the TAP Account.
With your permission, TAP may also use the data it has access to in order to define the Customer profile to send you ads, campaigns, and promotions that are adjusted to your interests and preferences, as well as personalized notifications and alerts resulting from the analysis of your profile and purchase history.
TAP may also, with the Customer’s permission, send marketing communications about TAP products and services.
Personal data will be retained by TAP for as long as the Customer holds an active TAP Account.
When you become a TAP Account holder, TAP provides your personal data to subcontractors (including those who manage the TAP Store platform) for the purposes mentioned, in accordance with agreements entered into with them, as well as to other competent entities according to the law.
Under the terms of the law the Customer can request access to any personal information at any time, and it may correct, delete or limit its treatment, the portability of the data1, or refuse permission for it to be processed, directly through the Customer Area.
The Customer may use the above mentioned means to withdraw consent for the processing of its data. However, this does not invalidate any processing by TAP up to that date and based on the consent previously provided.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, the Customer has the right to file a complaint to the competent supervisory authority in accordance with the law, should it consider that its data is not being processed in a legitimate manner, in accordance with the terms outlined above.
1 The right to portability is limited to the right of the data subject to receive the personal data relating to them and which it has provided to a data controller for processing (in this case TAP), in a structured format that is up to date and automatically read. That right is also limited to the right to transmit such data to another data controller without the controller to whom the personal data had been supplied being able to prevent it. Where technically possible, the data subject also has the right to have its data transferred directly between the data controllers.
