That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Albufeira. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Albufeira vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Portugal you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide.

Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Albufeira definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Albufeira.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different Hertz. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
