Location information for Portimao

Portimao is located on Portugal's Algarve coastline and is one of the biggest cities in the region. The Algarve is on the Atlantic coast, in the far south of the country. The region is popular with package tourists from Europe, particularly from the UK. They are attracted by long stretches of beautiful beaches, endless sunshine and a low cost vacation.

Public transport on the Algarve is limited. Therefore, many travelers choose to explore with cheap car rental in Portimao Downtown. Most firms offering this service demand that customers are at least 21 years old. Most of the main roads on the Algarve have been recently built. However, travelers might encounter some roads that are little more than dirt tracks, especially in more rural areas.

Driving conditions on the Algarve might be a little more challenging than in the USA. Portuguese drivers tend to overtake in the middle of the road. Given that road markings are also lacking on many roads, this combination makes driving here more hazardous at times. To minimize the risk, drivers should to the keep to the far right where at all possible.

Most travelers get to Portimao by flying to Faro, 70kms away. Many visitors on package tours have transfers included, so they can arrange car rental in Portimao Downtown after checking-in to their accommodation. Other travelers without an inclusive transfer can take a bus or train to Portimao.

One of the Algarve's best beaches, Praia de Rocha, is just a few kilometers away with car rental in Portimao Downtown. On the other hand, it's possible to drive east to the city of Lagoa, where more private beaches can be found. In fact, the whole coastline is accessible via A22 highway. This highway stretches as far as the Spanish border.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Car-Rentals.com the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
