Carrentals made my car rental experience so easy and pleasant. Bruno at the front desk was outstanding and the drop off couldn't have been easier. I plan on using them multiple times in the future as I know the service is top notch and the car I receive is in excellent condition.

Booking was fine. Suggested Allianz Insurance purchased, but I cancelled later as when picked up rental from Hertz, required insurance direct with Hertz or 2.5k hold on credit required. If take 170.00 Euro insurance taken with Hertz this is not necessary. It was confusing to Hertz and me. This should have been explained during the booking process. It might say from 141.00 per day but was more like 220.00 after Ins and fees. Note that it was not Hertz fault. Rather the Var Rentals booking process and not being up front. In my opinion.

You’ll have incredible fuel economy as you cruise through the streets of Lisbon District and Porto in this small vehicle. They’re a delight to drive, a cinch to park, and most importantly, easy on the hip pocket.Don’t limit your adventuring to the big cities. Portugal offers some breathtaking scenery, such as bays, sandy shores, and caves. A ride like a convertible will help you travel around them in style.

Prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you’re all about comfort and class. If you want to indulge yourself, why not book a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a stylish mid-sized vehicle? Alternatively, if you just need a set of wheels to get from A to B at the cheapest price possible, maybe go for a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won’t burn a hole in your pocket).

You’ll be driving on the right side of the road in Portugal. Even though the rules may be similar to home, we recommend driving more cautiously in new and unfamiliar destinations.
What happens if I get a speeding fine while driving a rental car in Portugal?
Generally speaking, your rental car company will charge the amount detailed on the fine to your credit card, including local surcharges. Or they may supply your information to local law enforcement agencies, who’ll then issue a fine to your postal address.
