Faro Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Located near the sizable city of the same name, Faro Airport is the main gateway to the Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region. Known for its beautiful beaches and scenic coastal towns, but also fascinating history, the Algarve is one of the gems of this part of Europe. These are three of the most interesting attractions of the region:

  • Albufeira. The Algarve might have the highest proportion of picturesque and laid back beach towns anywhere in Europe, and among them, Albufeira could be said to be the most interesting (or at least the most popular) one. In addition to beautiful Atlantic beaches and great opportunities for water sports, Albufeira also boasts a well-preserved Old Town and the Archaeological Museum which has artifacts dating back to the Roman and Moorish rule of the area.
  • Inland. Much more sparsely populated and less explored than the coastal part, the Algarve’s inland is usually overlooked by travelers. But give it a chance and you’ll find a fascinating destination that offers everything from majestic (yet accessible) peaks to spas dating back for millennia and stunning views of the ocean below. Unfortunately, during the recent decade the Algarve’s interior has suffered from sporadic wildfires in its eucalyptus forests, so make sure to check the wildfire forecast if you’re visiting during the warmer half of the year.
  • Portimão. The second-largest city of the Algarve, Portimão is also something of the region’s culinary capital, especially when it comes to seafood coming straight out of the Atlantic. Other attractions include its beautiful beaches, especially Praia da Rocha which, despite its name (‘Rocky Beach’), is sandy; dolphin-watching trips; and well-preserved, colorful architecture. Portimão is on the way from Faro to Albufeira and Lagos.

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.

FAQ

If I don't purchase Full coverage, what would be the maximum charge if the car were to be damaged or stolen?

I don't have a credit card. Can I leave the deposit with a debit card?
Yes, it is possible to use a debit card with some rental companies by purchasing additional insurance from them.
Can I drive to Spain?

Portimao was nice to visit and have lunch, just a short drive from Carvoeiro were we stayed. Lisbon is a nice town well worth a visit, but the drive, 290 Km, on the A2 is not very interesting. From Algarve it is 22 € each way in fares. There is a 120 km/h speed limit but the Portuguese cars are much faster! Albufeira is nice town to visit, as is Faro (if you enjoy British people that are loud and drunk). Spending a month golfing, a car is a must and give you the freedom to see and experience Portugal.

the scenery in the Algave is beautiful, but the best places are the ones which are only reachable by car. shopping is a lot easier by car, there are so many shopping centres, with supermarkets, and numerous shopping malls. Explore the little villages of the beaten track, where you will find the cobbled streets and little tavernas where the local people enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy the sunshine. The easiest way of renting a car is at the airport, avoid the motorways,( which you have to pay for ) by using the N roads. and just enjoy yourself by being independent.

We have been to Faro several times, and always with a good impression of car rent. We go through Holiday Auto and there is always a good offer and trusted companies.

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.
