Pick up a hired car in Portimão or at Faro Airport?

Flughafen FAO

FAO Airport

Although there are plenty of car hire companies in Portimão offering a wide range of rental cars, it is possible that especially in the summer months all rental cars are fully booked or are not available for the complete rental period you require. For this reason, it can make sense to look for a hired car in Portimao or at Faro Airport before you start your trip in order to benefit from an early booking discount. At the nearest airport, you should also be able to access a more extensive fleet of vehicles, from sporty convertibles to mid-size cars and SUV's, and also benefit from the longer opening hours at an airport.

This is the airport in Faro:

Airport IATA code Distance
Faro FAO 70 km


  • multilingual staff
  • good choice of extras
  • attractive opening hours
  • saving on transfer costs
  • good parking facilities

Everything about insurance for your hired car in Portimao

Versicherung für den Mietwagen

Insurance for your hired car

Being on the road in your hired car in the scorching midday heat can be a strain, even with air conditioning or an open convertible. An accident happens quickly because maybe the brake lights of the driver in front of you aren't working, or suddenly there's a donkey or cow on the road. For this reason, be sure to take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess and opt for liability insurance with a correspondingly high coverage amount.

In addition to the much-needed comprehensive and liability insurance, you can also choose other insurance policies:

  • Theft protection insurance
  • Glass insurance
  • Underbody insurance

Our tip: When hiring, take a look at the small print and be sure to inspect the hired car in advance for scratches and other damage.

Car hire in Portimao - Is there a toll in Portugal?

Maut in Portugal

Tolls in Portugal

Taking a hired car on various excursions or perhaps even a round trip through Portugal is generally a very good idea to get to know the country better with its sights, churches and rugged coastlines as well as the gorgeous stretches of beach. Unfortunately, most of the highways in Portugal have tolls and different systems, so you should definitely plan your trip in advance. You can only pay in cash (no credit card payment!) on certain sections of the road. In this case, a ticket must be taken when entering the freeway and paid when leaving the freeway. The situation is different on sections with electronic tolls, which in most cases are only charged for foreign vehicles. However, it is best to obtain up-to-date information on tolls in Portugal from your automobile club before you start your trip.

Car hire Portimao - this is how fast you are allowed to drive

Understandably, police officers in Portugal are not amused by speeding! Therefore, be sure to adhere to the maximum speeds listed below:

Road speeding limits
Inner cities 50 km/h
Out of town 90 km/h
Highways 120 km/h

Portimao enchants at any time of the year

Whether it's the sailing regatta "Portimao Global Ocean Race" or the Superbike World Championship and A1 Grand Prix races at the "Autódromo Internacional do Algarve" - Portimao is all about sports! Nature lovers, hikers and water rats are guaranteed to get their money's worth here all year round, as the breathtaking hinterland invites you to take long walks, especially in spring and autumn. Water nymphs and air mattress captains, on the other hand, will feel particularly at home in the summer months, as the beaches are ideal for relaxing. However, if you don't want to relax on the house beaches, you are well advised to drive along the coast with your hired car to spend a romantic day at secluded bays.

All highlights in Portimao at a glance:

  • the harbor which invites to a stroll
