Faro Airport

Airport Car Hire

Faro, the gateway to the Algarve region of Portugal, is an ever-popular year-round destination for holidaymaking Brits year-round. And many of those choose to hire a car for their holiday. Many also own holiday homes and choose to hire a car each time they visit. 

Chances are, if you haven't visited the Algarve, you know someone who has. You'll probably know that the region's beaches and sunny weather are what draws holidaymakers. Most visitors don't stay just in Faro but seek out the smaller towns, resorts, and beaches. 

Tolls: Note that the A22 is a toll road. It is certainly possible to get around the region without using it. Your car hire supplier may offer you an electronic transponder with which you can pay the tolls. However, if you don't want to pay the extra fee that they request, it is easy to avoid the toll roads unless you are traveling further north to Lisbon or west to Spain. 

Driving to Spain: The Spanish border is only roughly 60km from Faro Airport. You can take most hire cars from Faro Airport to Spain. However, note that there is an additional fee to cross the border which varies from company to company and that you must inform the hire company ahead of time. 

So don't wait! Plan your trip to the Algrave, hire a car, and enjoy the sunny beaches! And here are some destinations to put on your list

  • Ria Formosa Natural Park
  • The beach towns of Albufeira, Lagos, and Sagres
  • Vicentine Coast Natural Park

One tip I would recommend is to hire the toll pass ‘you can get about without it but it seems like every 1/4 of a mile is a roundabout and it will drive you mad. Must see are albufera old town loule market make sure you haggle and faro old town and go up in the church to the roof to view the town plus there some fantastic beach’s and restaurants

EPI was good, the car was very basic with small engine, no air conditioning, but was one of the cheapest so you would need to upgrade if certain features are important to you. The EPI office was only a few minutes away, the trek to the meeting point probably took longer than the van journey to the offices. Overall it was a good experience.

Lovely trips around western Algarve and silver coast. The coastal route from Vila do Bispo via Sagres and to Aljezur was particularly beautiful and scenic with stunning unspoilt beaches, awe inspiring hillside scenery, quaint fishing villages snd surfing hotspots, with unique independent restaurants serving delicious authentic local food. Wonderful! Very easy and empty motorway driving and highly recommend the VisVerde credit card pre-authorised toll system. No stopping and no cashless and paid at end of rental. Very convenient and good value!

Arrived in Faro and transfer to the Autorent desk was very quick and smooth. Off airport office where we picked up the car was only 5 mins drive away. Then stayed in Carvoeiro and drove up to Monchique and Silves. Worth a visit. Car just excellent to drive and did not use a lot of fuel. Fantastic value for money.

We managed to tour the whole of Portugal and we could not have done it without renting a car. I have driven in Eurpope with a right handed car and managed fine but it was very different driving a left hand car on the right hand side of the road. As it was an automatic it made my life a lot easier and it took a few days to get used to but afterwards I was absolutely fine - even in Lisbon. I had to be extra careful in the car parks but otherwise was fine.
