Increase in AUTOvoucher discount programme

Last updated: 10 May 2023

As part of its March 2022 package entitled "New measures to offset rising energy prices", enacted in response to the global energy crisis, the Portuguese government increased its EUR 0.10/litre fuel subsidy (AUTOvoucher) to EUR 0.40/litre (maintaining the maximum of 50 litres/month) for the month of March 2022. 

The support is directly provided in participating gas stations. When consumers use an eligible bank card, a corresponding AUTOvoucher benefit is credited to their bank account. In total, consumers can get a monthly benefit of 20 euro.

The AUTOvoucher scheme was ended in April 2022.
