Lisbon Airport Car Hire

Airport Car Hire

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is a tourist mecca for people from all over the world, but particularly for Brits. With low-cost airlines ferrying tourists from many British cities, that is unsurprising. Many come for the architecture, culture, and nightlife of the city, but most come for the sunny weather and gorgeous beaches. 

The best way to reach said beaches is by hiring a car. Most Brits visiting Portugal choose the hire a car for their holiday. Whether staying in a luxurious resort or hopping up the coast from beach to beach, having a car gives you the most freedom. And with such demand comes a major supply of hire cars — and incredibly low prices. 

Tolls: Toll roads in Portugal can be confusing, for sure. You may be offered an electronic transponder by your hire company which will likely come with an extra daily fee. If traveling in the area around Lisbon, you may not need it as you can pay for most tolls with a credit card or in cash. If planning to travel to the Algarve region and using the A22, you will want to take it. Of course, you always have the choice of avoiding it and therefore not needing a transponder. 

Driving to Spain: The Spanish border is roughly 200km from Lisbon Airport. You can take most hire cars from Lisbon 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 Portugal, hire a car, and enjoy the culture and sunny beaches! Here are some destinations to put on your list: 

  • The gorgeous town of Sintra just to the west of Lisbon
  • Beaches up and down the coast 
  • The famous Algarve region 
  • The culturally-rich city of Porto
