We tend to travel around and the motorways and main roads were quiet and excellent. There are frequent tolls but they are not too expensive. We did not use the car in Porto itself but this is normal for us wherever we are we prefer to use public transport to cities to not have to worry about parking.

No need for a car in the city of Porto. But if you are venturing further afield a rented car is essential and the motorways are great and easy to use. Some of the roads in rural towns are VERY narrow so a small car is an advantage.

You only need a car if you are leaving Porto. Driving in the city is hectic; but the mountains an hour away are amazing.

If going for mountains and high speed roads, diesel + automatic gear should be considered. But not all fuel tanks in small villages offer diesel.

Porto is the neighbour town where I’ve born and i’ve enjoyed the weekend nights in Porto in my twenties. Worked in Porto almost for ten years, and still, it is the city that I can call home. I’m living abroad and when I return to Porto for the holidays, a car is essential. And this was my first on car hiring.

We were driving direct to Spain, we were pre-warned of cross border charge. Appeared that the only way to pay for tolls in portugal was to purchase a transponder for use in the car as the option of paying tolls at a shop within 48 hours of accruing the charges was impossible as we were traveling back to porto on day of flying back home.

Do rent a car and travel the country, it is very beautiful and lots of history and great beaches. People are friendly, helpful and all young people speak English. Make sure you have a GPS and a transponder. As for rental car agencies, there are some that rent cheap but get you in other ways. Do your home work. I have dealt with drive on holidays before and so far I am pleased. Hope it stays that way.

Porto is relatively cheap to drive a car around particular as parking costs are low. If you're visiting Portugal as a whole, certainly drive around to the smaller cities for a real immersive experience with the locals. Also I would recommend paying the set "Via Verde" autotoll as it saves going to the post office to pay the toll fees. If the ViaVerde is activated, do not worry about using the tolls all the time, quickest way to get around the country!

Very nice city. Liked more than Lisbon. Watching the sunset from the bridge was probably the best part. Don't miss out the bridge climbing attraction (at a different bridge)

We did over 1600 kms of driving through Porto, Douro Region, Cambria, Nazare, Sintra, Lisbon, Lagos, Albufeira, Carvoeira, Evora and Obidos. Renting a car with Android Auto or Apple Car Play is very useful but it is important to know in advance if the car has such features. We had a Garmin GPS for backup but found that it was not accurate enough in smaller towns like Evora or Obidos. It also did not offer the shortest routest that Waze provided. We got a Vodafon Sim card and data plan to help make the navigation in the very narrow old streets less stressful.

On first getting to Portugal we wanted a place that was easy to get out of airport and city and Porto fit the bill. Spent a few days north of city ( Viana do Castelo) in less populated area to get acclimatized and used to driving and then set out on northern Portugal exploration. Worked well for us so that by the time we had toured around and got to Lisbon we were ready for increased traffic.

if you are going to drive all around Portugal then I recommend that you hire a car, but If you are staying in Lisbon or Porto I would not recommend you to hire a car, becouse those two cities have excellent public transport, metro, tram,bus,taxi,uber, and parking is not easy in Lisbon. But if you go on a trip like I did, and you travel 1700km from Porto to Lisbon, to Faro and all other places. I would highly recommend that you pick a rent a car.

Porto is a great city to visit and very economical to eat and stay and you will not need a car to get around. We only hired a car as we left Porto to go north to Villa and tour the northern coastal towns and Spain.

It is great to have the freedom of having a car even though so many told me it is impossible to get around in the cities. It was true for the most part but I liked the flexibility to park it or use it depending on where I was going at any given time. It is by far safe to drive in Portugal and if you stay away from the historical streets and use public transportation for those areas you will be glad you did.
