KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Portimão

  • Car rentals in Portimão offer several advantages over public transportation, providing flexibility, convenience, and accessibility. With a rental car, travelers can create personalized itineraries, explore remote areas, and enjoy scenic drives at their pace. Public transportation may have limited schedules and routes, restricting mobility. Portimão car rentals offer an excellent way to explore the beautiful coastal city and its surroundings in Portugal. With a car rental in Portimão, you can easily visit popular attractions such as the Portimão Museum and Praia da Rocha, one of the most famous beaches in the region, just a short drive from the city center. The flexibility of a car rental in Portimão allows you to make the most of your time and discover the diverse beauty of the Algarve region.
  • If you're visiting Portimão, Portugal, you'll likely arrive at Faro Airport (FAO). The airport hosts several car rental companies, including Avis, Hertz, Europcar, and Budget, with rental desks conveniently located inside the Terminal building.  Upon arrival and after clearing customs, you'll find the rental desks near the baggage claim area, making it easy to pick up your car and go. For convenience, you can pre-book your car rental in Portimão online through KAYAK.
  • Driving car rentals in Portimão is generally straightforward and enjoyable, thanks to well-maintained and well-marked roads. However, be cautious when approaching highly-populated areas such as school zones near Avenida Miguel Bombarda, as there may be students crowded near or on the road. Business districts and residential neighborhoods like Alvor are prone to jaywalking. Portimão has several roundabouts, like Praia da Rocha or at the intersection of Avenida V6 and Rua D. Carlos I. Therefore, it's essential to reduce your speed when approaching them and pay attention to traffic flow.
  • Car rentals in Portimão may experience challenges when moving around the city, particularly during rush hour. The morning traffic rush occurs around 8 am to 9 am, while the evening rush starts around 5 pm to 7 pm. During these times, the main roads and highways leading to the city center, such as Avenida V6 and EN125, may experience heavy traffic and congestion. Additionally, during peak tourist seasons, such as the summer months, the influx of visitors can lead to increased traffic and crowded streets, especially around popular tourist areas like Praia da Rocha.
