Faro Airport Car Hire

Passengers arriving at Faro will find the rental desks of several well known car hire companies in the arrivals zones of the terminal. It is always best to reserve car hire in advance of travel, as the airport gets particularly busy during the summer months. The summer holiday season runs from May to October, and at peak times in July and August many car hire suppliers struggle to meet demand.

Car hire Faro Airport is offered by local companies such as Auto Jardim Algarve, who can be contacted on (+351 289 800 881, www.auto-jardim.com) and Guerin Lda (tel +351 289 800 883, www.guerin.pt). Among the best known car hire providers are also:

The airport has excellent motorway and dual carriageway connections via the A22, EN 125, IC1, N2, N120, N122 International and N431 (linking with Huelva, Spain) / A22 (Via do Infante, Portugal).

Close by are the popular resorts Vale Do Lobo, Vilamoura, Portimao, Lagos and Quinta Do Lago. For a day trip by hire car to Seville in Spain it will take around 2 to 2.5 hours and a visit by car to Portugal’s capital Lisbon will take ca. 3 hours.

The car hire Faro Airport suppliers can provide customers with a large selection of cars during their holiday. From a mini class vehicle like the Ford Ka, cabriolets, family estate cars to SUVs and people carriers, minibuses and vans, there will be something for every requirement and taste. With so much competition among the car rental providers, it pays to shop around for the best rate.

The best online rate is not always the one that appears to be the cheapest at first glance. It is important to check what is included in the overall rate. Typically all taxes, airport charges, collision damage waiver and theft protection are included in the price, but some car hire companies also offer unlimited free kilometres/mileage, 24-hour breakdown assistance and even free satellite navigation systems with their deals.

Special offers abound during off peak seasons like spring and autumn, when car hire Faro isn’t quite as busy. Weekend rates in particular tend to come down considerably, making a weekend away across the border into Spain an affordable pleasure.

When making a booking with any of the car rental Faro Airport companies, it is important to also book adequate insurance should things go wrong. Not all companies offer breakdown assistance and not all include personal accident insurance either. Usually these type of insurance packages can be booked at the same time as making the online car hire reservation.

Car Hire Faro Airport providers will most likely have age restrictions in place, which will mainly affect younger drivers, but may also prevent older drivers from getting behind the steering wheel of a rented car.

It is important to check, what age restrictions apply before going ahead with the reservation. Younger drivers are often charged additional day rates for insurance, which will push the price of renting a car up.
