Driving under the influence of alcohol - what needs to be considered?

If you have been drinking wine in the evening, you should make sure that the alcohol limit is 0.5. If it goes beyond that, you risk a fine, the withdrawal of your driving licence or, in the worst case, a prison sentence. Driving under the influence of alcohol is followed more closely than before. If you are involved in an accident in an alcoholic state, the insurance cover for your hired car will also expire.

As in any country, car hire companies in Portugal want to secure themselves and get back the rented car safely. The amount of the deposit differs from car hire to car hire and can be up to 2000 Euro. Make sure that your credit card allows this debit limit. Of course, you will get your money back as soon as the hired car is returned undamaged to the landlord.

Insurance for the hired car

The country in which you hire a car has no influence on the price of the insurance. Rather, it depends on the category of the vehicle you select. For your own protection, you should always choose "comprehensive insurance without excess." In addition, you should pay attention to a high liability coverage. This should cover at least one million euros in damages, with an optimal figure of 7.5 million euros.
