Natives, exotics and invaders


If you live or own property in Portugal, afpop, the largest association for foreigners in the country, is the entity you should know about and be part of.  Over the past 25 years, thousands of members have benefited from the information and advice that afpop provides and has helped its members save hundreds of euros every year by taking advantage of exclusive benefits that the association has negotiated with over 300 businesses. There are benefits to be gained on insurance, healthcare, financial and property services, motoring, travel and accommodation, household needs, and many other essentials.  

afpop also organises seminars, events and social gatherings specifically designed to help residents make the most of their lives in Portugal.  

afpop is continuously looking to add to the services and benefits it provides for its members and right now there are even more reasons for joining the association, including a fantastic deal on telephone calls to numbers outside Portugal (as well as national numbers) and a free winter check-up for your car.

Come along to the Better Living in Portugal exhibition at the Portimão Arena on October 6 and 7 and find out more from afpop’s friendly staff.  

Entry is free, children can be looked after by professional carers, there are lots of prizes to be won and, of course, there will be a wide variety of businesses just waiting to help you. BLiP is open from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sunday. Parking is plentiful and catering facilities are on-site.
