Cheap trains in Portugal this fall...

Camino(s) past & future
None yet; perhaps the Portugese (2021?)
(I would guess that these could be purchased online, just like any other CP train tickets. Alfa Pendular are slightly faster with less stops; Intercidades stop at most major cities.)

From the Algarve Daily News (English language):

"16 October 2019

New Trains of Portugal campaign launches Faro-Lisbon travel route for 4.50 euros
The new Comboios de Portugal (CP) long-distance train campaign has entered into force today. Until December 19th, CP will provide 10300 trips with discounts up to 80 percent.

Tickets available in this new campaign are valid for travel between October 24th and December 19th, and can be purchased at least 10 days prior to the travel date.

The campaign covers the 86 destinations of the Alfa Pendular and Intercidades trains, with prices starting from: 2.50 euros for connections between Lisbon and Évora; 3.00 euros for connections between Lisbon and Beja; 4.00 euros for connections between Lisbon and the cities of Coimbra or Covilhã; 4.50 euros for connections between Lisbon and the cities of Aveiro, Faro or Guarda; 5.00 euros for connections between Lisbon and Porto; 5.50 euros for connections between Lisbon and the cities of Braga or Guimarães.

In a statement CP announces that more than 1200 seats are offered for sale this week.

The company said that, since 2013, it has been promoting several campaigns of this nature that have registered a great market receptivity and contributed to an increase of 37 percent in demand for long-distance services between 2013 and 2018."
