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.

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!

Tavira is a Beautiful town with lots to see and do. Not yet taken over by tourism. Highly recommended and easy to get to from Faro. Faro is also pleasant as well, for a day of activity.

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.
