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 busy during the summer, Faro Airport serves the southern region of the Algarve.
  • Madeira Funchal Airport: Located on Madeira’s southeastern coast, Funchal Airport connects the island to mainland Portugal as well as many destinations in Europe and is served by more than 40 different airlines. There are direct flights from London, Manchester, Rome, Geneva, Paris, and even New York.
  • By land: If your rental supplier permits it, you can 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, which are all 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 - it has rich culture, outstanding cuisine, and a vibrant nightlife.
  • 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 historical region, famous for its wine, worth exploring in its own right.
  • 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 amazing road trips. 
  • Sintra: Just a scenic 30-minute drive away from Lisbon, the entire town of Sintra and its natural surroundings have been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main attractions include Sintra National Palace and the Moorish Castle, as well as other historical 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.
  • Madeira: often referred to as the "Pearl of the Atlantic," is an incredible, island destination offering stunning natural landscapes, rich culture and traditional cuisine. Its rugged beauty, ranging from high cliffs to lush forests, along with unique levada hikes, make it an adventurer's paradise. Additionally, the vibrant local festivals and exceptional gastronomy, featuring Madeira wine and fresh seafood, offer a taste of the island's unique cultural flavor, making a visit to Madeira a truly enriching experience.

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. Many of the cities in Portugal have smaller roads in certain parts, which were built centuries ago. These roads often only facilitate smaller vehicles, which is why compact rentals car is so popular in Portugal.

Driver's license requirements

  • Portugal recognizes valid foreign driver’s licenses that are written in a Latin alphabet for visits shorter than six months.
  • If you’re in Portugal for longer than six months or live there permanently, the law requires you to obtain a Portuguese driver’s license.
  • If your driver’s license is printed in a non-Latin alphabet (Cyrillic, Arabic, etc.), you’ll need an International Driving Permit (IDP).
  • Similarly, if your driver’s license doesn’t show your photograph, you may also be required to have an IDP.
  • Even if you have an IDP, you must also carry your original driver’s license as you might be required to present both.
  • You must carry your driver’s license, not a copy, with you at all times. 
  • You need to have had your driver’s license for at least two years.
  • Some rental car suppliers charge a young driver fee for drivers between the ages of 22 and 25 and a senior driver fee for drivers over the age of 65.
  • There may be additional requirements depending on the rental supplier and car category, so make sure to check the rental conditions before booking.
  • Most rental car companies in Portugal will require your credit card details on file as a security for renting the car.

Crossing Borders

Portugal shares a 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 both countries are the same. 

Some rental suppliers 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 travel to Spain in your rental car, make sure to check the rental conditions before booking. Learn more about cross-border rentals on our Help Center

Top driving routes

  • Alentejo. Nestled snugly between two of Portugal's major tourist magnets, the captivating capital of Lisbon and the sun-kissed coastal allure of the Algarve, lies Alentejo. This expansive agricultural region, notable for its undulating fields and rich farming heritage, presents a distinctive and charming destination for those in search of an authentic Portuguese experience. Alentejo unfolds itself as a picturesque region teeming with pastoral beauty. It's a panorama of rolling hills cloaked in olive groves and golden wheat fields, interspersed with quaint, traditional white-washed villages. As the seasons shift, so too do the colors of the landscape, painting a vibrant living canvas that shifts from emerald green to sun-bleached gold and rich autumn hues.
  • Peneda-Gerês National Park. Situated in the extreme northern reaches of Portugal, the Peneda-Gerês National Park, often simply referred to as Gerês by the locals, reigns supreme as the largest conserved natural expanse in the country. An extraordinary meld of rich history and breathtaking natural beauty, Gerês encapsulates an unspoiled realm, home to diverse landscapes and abundant wildlife. Its verdant forests stretch wide across mountainous terrains, diving into deep river valleys, creating a vibrant tapestry that changes with the seasons. The park also boasts a fascinating historical dimension, with traces of human habitation stretching back centuries.The trip from Porto takes only about 1 hour and 15 minutes by car.
  • Spain. Located just over the border is one of Europe’s largest and most interesting countries. A mecca of cuisine, culture, and art, Spain also has plenty to offer in terms of natural riches and fun road trips. Traveling by car between Porto and Galicia, Algarve and Andalusia, or even Lisbon and Madrid is quite common, but make sure to ask your rental supplier in advance if you are permitted to cross the border in your rental car.

I'm an experienced driver, but Madeira was extremely challenging (considering we visited everything there was to visit). Steep hills, narrow roads, road blocks where you need to go uphill with the back of the car, narrow parkings, etc. The car was a long one, but at least it was powerful and it got us absolutely everywhere without any real effort or challenge (except for the size compared to the surroundings).

We picked the car up at the airport, then drove to Évora to see some attractions and eat lunch, then continued on to Lagos in the Algarve, where we were staying for 5 nights. While in Lagos, we drove to Cape St. Vincent (southwesternmost point in Europe), and another day we drove to Corvaeiro Beach (great beach, plenty of restaurants, beautiful views from the cliffs). And we enjoyed the town of Lagos, too, which did not require driving.

Getting a car in Portugal definitely a good choice as you can see so much more of the country and at your own pace. Be prepared for narrow roads in towns and try to plan for parking in advance. When in Lisbon or Porto, just park your car for the time you are there. Uber is a great option for getting around these cities. Enjoy!

Algarve is amazing!!!! It's impossible to feel the vibe of this place from your hotel that's why it's much more better to rent a car and go to all beautiful beaches and authentic towns. Municipal market in Olhao, Marinha beach, Sagres, old city in Lagos, castle in Silvers are just a few must see in this region :)))

We had a really great dinner in Lisbon at Pastanaga. We went on a 3 hour walking tour that was very informative. We drove to Fatima (my husband really wanted to stop here), Porto where we stayed for 2 nights, then onto Cascais with a stop in Obidos. We also took a day trip to Sintra. It was a really great trip. The picture is of Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra.

Maderia was lovely country, main roads were a dream to drive on, but secondary roads were scary as they were narrow and some had serious inclines. Great place to do easy, medium and hard hikes. Pico Do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo and back was challenging but satisfying.

Benigal caves - amazing coastline hike , incredible views , The Algarve region - lots of places to explore, Praia da Luz- Endless Summer restaurant -awesome fresh salads, burgers tasted homemade , friendly staff, reasonable priced Kayak trip in Lagoas- amazing but not not a leisurely “paddle” Porto - Douro Valley Tour - bus ride further than we expected (90min) , 2hrs return, lunch was nice , winery tours informative , boat ride - ok Lisbon/ Sintra - tour of palaces - moorish castle , the grounds of Sintra are gorgeous, the castle tour was jammed with tourists - Sunset sail in Lisbon well worth it
