Rent A Car In Portugal

How To Rent A Car In Portugal

If you want to explore Portugal by yourself, renting a car in Portugal may be best to give you full flexibility over where you go and when. There are airport car rental offices, but we don’t recommend renting. That will always cost five times more than booking ahead. You can get some fantastic deals on car rentals in Portugal if you book well ahead.

Automatic or manual transmission

Most cars in Portugal have manual transmissions. Automatic vehicles are in short supply and therefore are more expensive to hire, usually double the price.

Fuel fees

When you collect your rental car, it should have a full tank of fuel. The rental company should give you the option of returning it full or empty. Please ask before what you need to do.

Young drivers

You must be over 18 to hire a car in Portugal, and some companies won’t even consider anyone under 21. Check age restrictions carefully before booking. The charges fee ranges from €7-12 per day.
