Exploring Faro

Faro is the southernmost city in mainland Portugal and ideally explored by rental car. All year round it is a popular destination for vacationmakers from all over the world, mainly due to the presence of an international airport. It also enjoys a reputation as more tourist-friendly than many other parts of the region. Faro is a good starting point to explore the more remote areas of the Algarve by rental car. Faro and its surroundings are perfect to discover with a car rental. Renting a car will be easier for you thanks to Driveboo, where you can compare offers of many rental car companies online and book the one that best suits your needs. If you want to be mobile right from the start, it is best to get the rental car at Faro Airport (FAO).

The advantages of a winter in Faro

We tell you why a winter in Faro is worthwhile:

  • In the winter months, both car rentals and accommodations are cheaper than in the high season.
  • Since not so many tourists travel to Faro in winter, you can enjoy the city and surroundings in peace.
  • Although it is too cold to swim in the sea in the winter months, walks on the beach are just as nice.
  • With your own rental car you can explore Faro and all the highlights in the area at your leisure.

Rental car at FAO Airport

Faro Airport (FAO) is an international commercial airport operated by ANA Aeroportos de Portugal. It is the third largest commercial airport in the country, after the Lisbon and Porto airports, and serves as a gateway to the whole region of Algarve. The airport is located just 6 km outside of the city.

There is a large selection of car rental companies offering rental cars right at the airport. These companies are located mainly in the area: "Parking P4 - Car Hire."

Driving a rental car in Faro - what should I know beforehand?

Portugal is one of the most popular European destinations for summer road trips. Just as in neighboring Spain, be prepared for some chaotic drivers on the roads. The driving style of the Portuguese can be, as in many southern countries, quite "hot-blooded." Above all, it is advisable to know the most important traffic rules in Portugal. For example, the alcohol limit in Portugal is 0.5 and the mandatory inventory in a rental car includes a safety vest. However, if the car is registered in Spain, then a warning triangle, first aid kit and fire extinguisher must also be carried. In addition, between 1 November and 15 April, all vehicles must be fitted with winter tires with a tread depth of at least 4 mm, as well as with snow chains, if actual winter conditions prevail.

Speed limits in Portugal

Maximum speed limit for cars without trailers and motorcycles Maximum speed
Within built-up areas 50 km/h
Outside built-up areas 90 km/h
On expressways 100 km/h
On highways 120 km/h

As in many other European countries, you must pay a toll for driving your rental car on highways. Since 2011, an electronic payment system is in place.

We recommend you ask for information at the pick up station. Find out whether your car rental is equipped with an electronic transmitter or not.
