KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Coimbra

  • If you’re looking for car hire in Coimbra, it's the best way to get around the city and the surrounding areas. With a hire car, you can alleviate the waiting times and reliance on public transportation schedules and enjoy your trip with a little more freedom. From Coimbra, there are plenty of great places to visit by car, such as Aveiro, which is the ‘Venice of Portugal’ and only around 50 minutes away. Other notable places to visit are Buçaco Forest, only 30 minutes by car, and also Luso a charming spa town which is only 35 minutes away.
  • When arranging car hire in Coimbra and looking to collect your vehicle at the airport, note that there isn’t an airport in Coimbra. However, the closest airport where you will likely have more options of agencies and vehicles is Porto Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport (OPO). Here you can find the companies in the Arrivals Hall, immediately after Baggage Claim, and to collect your vehicle each car agency has a shuttle service to take you to the car park for collection.
  • Once you’ve sorted out your Coimbra car hire, make sure you get accustomed to the specific driving regulations of the region, as they might differ slightly from what you are accustomed to in your home country. If you are travelling with children, remember that Portuguese law requires children under the age of 12 years, or those with a height below 135 cm, to use an appropriate child safety seat while in a vehicle. Additionally, be cautious of the strict drinking driving laws, as Portugal's legal blood alcohol concentration limit is 0.05%. It is advisable to abstain from alcohol altogether.
  • If you’re driving around Coimbra, it’s worth making a note of various roads to avoid throughout the day, particularly during the morning (7:00-10:00) and evening (16:00-19:00) rush hours. So, it is wise to look for alternative routes if you’re considering travelling on Avenida Fernão de Magalhães, which is one of the main roads leading into the centre, or Ponte Rainha Santa Isabel, which is the city’s bridge connecting the city centre to the left back of the Mondego River. In addition, the main roads of Rua Padre António Vieira and Avenida Emídio Navarro both lead into the centre and can get very congested with people commuting to and from work.
  • Book your rental car in Coimbra at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Coimbra are around -28% cheaper than other car types, on average
