Why rent a car in Portugal?

Portugal is a great place to explore by car. From cities like Lisbon and Porto to beaches of Algarve, historic attractions like Sintra, and surfing meccas like Peniche and Nazaré, there are countless places to visit and explore, and having your own ride will allow you to go see them all during the same trip.

This article is about the mainland Portugal and the Madeira island. For information about the Autonomous Region of Azores Islands, see the article of Portugal-Azores.

One-way Car Rentals in Portugal

Here are the most popular one-way rental options for pickup in Portugal and drop off in another country:

  • From Portugal to Spain - 336 offers from € 47.54 per day
  • From Portugal to Germany - 48 offers from € 147.39 per day
  • From Portugal to Italy - 24 offers from € 147.86 per day
  • From Portugal to France - 24 offers from € 147.86 per day

Top ways to enter Portugal

  • Lisbon Airport: Portugal’s largest airport serves flights to and from nearly all European countries, as well as destinations in Africa, Asia, and the Americas.
  • Porto Airport: Large, modern, and well-connected, Porto Airport is popular with low-cost carriers like easyJet and Ryanair. 
  • Faro Airport: Well-connected to the rest of Europe and especially active during summers, Faro Airport serves the southern region of Algarve.
  • Madeira Funchal Airport: Located on Madeira’s western coast, Funchal Airport connects the island not only to the mainland Portugal, but also to many destinations in Europe, and is served by more than 40 different airlines.
  • By land: If your rental car provider permits it, it’s possible to rent a car in a neighboring country and then drive to Portugal. Some large international airports near Portugal are Malaga Airport, Seville Airport, and Madrid Airport in Spain. 

Top cities and places to visit

  • Lisbon: Portugal’s capital is often mentioned as one of the most interesting cities in Europe, and that’s for a good reason - its culture, food, and nightlife won’t let anyone leave disappointed.
  • Porto and the North: Different in looks and atmosphere from its large southern rival, Lisbon, Porto is just as fascinating. A metropolis of arts and architecture, it is the capital of Northern Portugal, a region worth exploring in its own right.
  • Madeira: Madeira is an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean and an Autonomous region of Portugal. It is best reached by plane, but, once you land in its capital Funchal, getting a rental car is the best way to travel around Madeira to explore its fantastic volcanic landscapes and distinct culture.
  • Algarve: Portugal’s southernmost region is famous for its beaches, as well as charming little towns like Albufeira, Lagos, and Sagres on the Atlantic Coast. Traveling the roads less traveled that lead inland and higher up into the mountains to towns like Monchique can be just as rewarding. 
  • Sintra: Just a scenic 30 minutes drive away from Lisbon, the whole town of Sintra and its surrounding nature have been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main attractions include Sintra National Palace and the Moorish Castle, as well as other monuments of architecture.
  • Aveiro: A city dating back to pre-Roman times, Aveiro is known for its canals (and like Venice, gondolas traveling through them), art noveau architecture, and stunning cathedrals. 

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Portugal is the VW Polo, but travelers also tend to pick the Ford Fiesta and the Fiat 500 a lot. 

Crossing Borders

Portugal has a land border with only one other country, Spain. Like Portugal, Spain is a member of the European Union (EU) and the Schengen Area, meaning that the entry requirements for Spain are the same as for Portugal. 

Some car rental providers allow you to cross national borders and even drop off your car in a different country, while others don’t. If you’d like to cross a national border during your rental period, make sure to check the terms and conditions before booking a car. Learn more about cross-border rentals on our FAQ section

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental car type in Portugal is an Economy, followed by Compact and Mini.

Top driving routes

  1. Porto - Lisbon (313 km / 194 mi) The distance between these two can be done in about three hours, although you might be tempted to stop in the historic city of Coimbra or make a small detour and visit Nazaré on the Atlantic Coast, one of the top surfing spots in Europe.
  2. Lisbon - Faro (278 km / 173 mi) It takes less than three hours to go from the capital to the largest city of Algarve. Knowing that you’ll be passing the wine-making region Alentejo on the way, however, might make you want to break up this trip into two or three days.
  3. Lisbon - Madrid (629 km / 381 mi) The capital of Spain, Madrid, is about six hours drive away from Lisbon, meaning you can have your breakfast in one and dinner in the other. On your way you’ll pass through the interior of Portugal and Extremadura in Spain, two regions that are sparsely populated and not frequently visited by tourists, but have lots of beautiful nature to explore. Note that you’ll have to cross a national border, so check with your car rental provider first to make sure they allow it.

Very friendly and helpful staff. It was excellent to have the flexibility of the car, especially during Covid. Portugal feels easy to get around. We rented a Smart , which is great for getting around and parking in the tiny older towns, but not too powerful in the highways :). The tolls are confusing but Sadorent was able to rent us a Via Verde pass that allowed us not to have to worry about going to the post office to pay our tolls.

I drove across Algarve- from Faro to Sagres. Carvoeiro was by far my number one spot- picturesque town with great amenities and walking trials. In fact I've extended my stay just so I could stay there a few days longer. Albufeira and Portimao were a bit too touristy and busy for my taste. Although little town just across Portimao- Ferragudo was a pleasant little gem. Lagos and especially Ponta de Pidade is a must- absolutely mesmerising.

It can be difficult to drive in Lisbon with narrow very steep slopes up and down and very sharp turns. Make sure you are very comfortable driving on these types of road if you choose a standard transmission. Also, parking can be complicated. Once I finally found a spot I parked the car and use the app ePark (approx 10 EUR/day) to street park, then walked or took an Uber. The benefit of the rental car was that I could travel and see other cities such as Sintra which was amazing with the Pena Palace, and then go south to see the incredible beaches in Lagos.

I live in the Algarve and have been using Faro Airport car rental for about one year now. I would like to book a long term rental, but can only hire a car for one month at a time. However, this allows me to shop around on the internet for the best deals from agents like 'Discover'. The off peak months from September are fantastic for prices and upgrades. Last January I got a brand new (only 7 miles on the clock) Citroen C3 from Hertz which cost €80.00 for 30 days hire. I have had similar deals from other hirers, so the winter months are great value if you shop around. Summer deals are not so good, plus you can expect delays, due to tourist demand at car hire depots. My favourite hire company is 'Drive on Holidays' whose staff are always helpful and friendly. Obviously top band companies like Hertz and Europecar are also good to deal with. I have only had one bad experience amd that was with a 'Centauro' whose depot is about 4 miles from the airport and whose staff are rude and dismissive. The car I got from them was filthy, full of large dents and had the engine management light on for most of the hire period. Customer services never answer phone calls or e mails, so the only help I got was on their Facebook page. All in all though Faro Airport is a great place to hire a car and I would recommend it to anyone visiting, or even (like me) living here.

It is worth to rent a car in the central Portugal instead of using their very expensive buses with no good connections between the places.

We would recommend a car for seeing Portugal for sure. Get a via verde pass as well for sure. Don’t drive inside Lisbon and Porto.

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in Europe and has been designed long, long time ago and no petrol cars were created. Personally, I hate traffic, bad driving and impatient drivers. Please try to use public transport within Lisbon if possible. Their metro is old but is fast and connects easily most of the areas where you wanna go. In general Portugal is good due to good food, is cheaper if compared to the rest of Europe and people are friendly.

Madeira is great to visit by car. It gives you flexibility and the possibility to reach more remote places. Maybe I would recommend a somewhat more powerfull engine to climb the quite steep hils/mountains. I had a 1 liter petrol car and had to make quite some distance in first gear and watch out not to be below 2000 rpm.

Make sure the car you rent is powerful with a good sized engine as there are some VERY steep hills! Air conditioning was a bonus but not absolutely necessary as it doesn't get as hot as other drier countries/islands.

We know Portugal quite well and liked the Fiat Panda very much. Overall, other than the problems with pick-up and delivery, the car was good.

First time to Portugal we didn't have GPS so we should have invested in a detailed map of the Algarve.....we were lost a few times but ended up in some nice places we might have never seen!

We do not frequent Lisbon, we have no need, too busy and built up , like any city. You want to see the real Portugal, stick to Central Portugal, or the north of the country. When renting a car, I think it is easier on the brain if you choose a company with offices off Airport. Also if you are concerned about your blood pressure, avoid the A1 from Lisbon north during the rush hour, although from my experience, it last more than an hour. We have a holiday home on the west coast and head in that direction as soon as practicable.

Driving in big cities like Lisbon and Porto is very stressful, also it's not really necessary at all. I suggest picking up the car only if you plan to leave the city.
