    Faro Airport Car Rental

    Airport Car Rental

    Get your rental car at Faro Airport! Then drive into Faro and park your rental outside the historic center to walk through the Old City, or Cidade Velha. The architecture there is a beautiful blend of Portuguese and Moorish influences. Visit local restaurants to sample Algarvian seafood dishes. Remember that it’s often the smaller, more shabby-looking restaurants that offer the tastiest food, but that many don’t accept credit cards.

    There are a lot of fun activities to keep you busy in and around Faro. You can take a boat trip to the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, go mountain biking, hit the local beaches to surf and do other watersports, or even go dolphin watching!

    Faro’s a great destination, but Portugal has even more to offer. So why not get a longer term car rental? Then you can explore more of the Algarve region, drive north to Lisbon, or head to nearby Andalusia in Spain. You can even pick up your car at Faro Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

    Faro Airport is also known as Algarve Airport and Aeroporto Internacional de Faro.

    Popular one-way rentals

    • Lisbon (278 km / 172 mi). The capital of Portugal is considered by many to be one of the greatest travel destinations in Europe, and for a good reason - it is a picturesque city full of landmarks, great restaurants, active nightlife, and fun things to do.
    • Porto (549 km / 341 mi). Located in the northern part of the country near the border with Spain, Porto is a city of special atmosphere. There are many beautiful churches, palaces, and bridges to marvel at, but Porto’s number one attraction is simply roaming through the labyrinth of its mazy streets.
    • Malaga (408 km / 253 mi). Located in neighboring Spain, Malaga is a fun travel destination. The city is best known for its beautiful beaches and the surrounding Costa del Sol region, but a number of amazing inland national parks are also nearby. To travel from Faro to Malaga or any other city in Spain, you’ll have to cross an international border, so ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it.
    • Lagos (90 km / 56 mi). Also located in the Algarve region a short ride west of Faro, Lagos is a great place to visit. The town is famous for its long, stunning beaches, but also has a cute historic center and a number of well-preserved historic buildings. Lagos in Algarve shouldn’t be mistaken for the much larger city of the same name in Nigeria.
    • Tavira (41 km / 25 mi). Another coastal destination of Algarve, Tavira is just east of Faro. A small town of only about 25,000 inhabitants, it punches way above its weight when it comes to things to see and do. These include a large protected nature area that is great for bird watching, an olive tree that is more than 2,000 years old, and the Tuna Fishing Museum dedicated to the historic industry of the region.
    • Mexilhoeira Grande (75 km / 46 mi). A scenic village right next to Lagos, Mexilhoeira has been inhabited since the prehistoric times. A history buff’s dream, it is home to the megalithic constructions of Alcalar, Roman ruins, and a number of beautiful churches.
    • Armacao de Pera (52 km / 32 mi). A historic fishing village, Armacao attracts thousands of visitors every summer thanks to its beautiful coastline and accessible beaches. Many quality seaside restaurants are open every summer.
    • Portimao (71 km / 44 mi). The second city of Algarve, Portimao is a fun travel destination. Like other places in the region, it is home to beautiful beaches, some well-preserved architecture, and laid back atmosphere. From Portimao, you can also easily access Monchique, one of the most interesting inland destinations of Algarve.

    Although fast, it can be expensive to use the Algarve's motorway, the A22, which has tolls. Use a map and follow the very picturesque local roads instead - though watching out for the fast and furious local drivers!

    Shop around. I live in the Algarve and always rent as buying is expensive. Winter rates are fantastic and I have paid as little as €100 for 30 days rental (with Hertz ! Believe it or not). Always check car thoroughly and take photos of any dents etc. Try to get long term rental is difficult, but then by doing so you can miss out on deals. You get what you pay for, so it is nearly always better value to get a not so good car at a great rate and accept that it may not have all the new onboard technology. Get and pay toll transponder in advance. The A22 motorway tolls are not expensive and it is the best and safest way to see the Algarve. Love Drive on holidays for cars and value.

    We stayed in Lagos which is about an hours drive on the motorway from Faro airport. Although it's a toll road, the charges are very low and the motorway is very quiet. Its much quicker than using the adjacent coast road. Lagos is a lovely resort with great beaches and scenery. It provides great access to the coastline to the westerly point & is a good place for exploring the Algarve.
