KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Portimão

  • By driving a car hire in Portimao, you will have better freedom and control over your own plans during your stay. This means that you can freely explore the city or the surrounding area at your own leisure, without having to depend upon the local timetables offered by public transport. This is perfect if you want to explore outside the port city in the Algarve, and go to visit the numerous beaches, national parks, and golf clubs that you can find across the 183 km squared area.
  • The nearest airport where you can collect your Portimao car hire, is in Faro, and Faro airport offers lots of car rental companies to choose from. You can collect your car hire vehicle from companies such as Air Auto, Goldcar Rental, Sixt, Alamo, Thrifty, and Europcar. Due to the fact that their opening hours may vary, we recommend that you get in touch with the company when you have organised your travel plans to see which one best suits your needs. You can find the car rental branch offices in the car hire area, which is down a tunnel after passing through baggage reclaim in arrivals.
  • While driving your car hire in Portimao, you will need to follow the national rules of the road of Portugal and drive on the right-hand side of the road. You are not allowed to turn right at a red light unless you see a specific filter light giving you permission to do so. You should not use your driving horn unless in an emergency, and you should be aware that jaywalking is common in Portimao and that you have a responsibility when behind the wheel to look out for any pedestrians as they cross the road.
  • Portimao receives hot weather in summer, particularly during the tourist season, so we recommend that you check your tyre pressure when driving your car hire in Portimao to make sure that you have full control of the vehicle. You should also check your coolant liquid levels to make sure the car functions properly, and be aware that the touristic areas of Portimao attract a lot of pedestrians and tend to have to the most traffic and congestion.
  • Book your rental car in Portimão at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
