Faro Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Faro Airport! Then drive into Faro and park your rental outside the historic center to walk through the Old City, or Cidade Velha. The architecture there is a beautiful blend of Portuguese and Moorish influences. Visit local restaurants to sample Algarvian seafood dishes. Remember that it’s often the smaller, more shabby-looking restaurants that offer the tastiest food, but that many don’t accept credit cards.

There are a lot of fun activities to keep you busy in and around Faro. You can take a boat trip to the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, go mountain biking, hit the local beaches to surf and do other watersports, or even go dolphin watching!

Faro’s a great destination, but Portugal has even more to offer. So why not get a longer term car rental? Then you can explore more of the Algarve region, drive north to Lisbon, or head to nearby Andalusia in Spain. You can even pick up your car at Faro Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

Faro Airport is also known as Algarve Airport and Aeroporto Internacional de Faro.

Our Customers Reviews

July 13, 2019
The Algarve in general is an amazing geographical location... guaranteed fair to good weather most of year... lots of options to enjoy from very busy to very relaxing. Good road (mostly); clear GPS instructions available. Will be returning.
June 29, 2019
Excellent service! Fast and efficient not waiting around car was good
June 25, 2019
Driving in Faro was easy and pleasant. However, I disliked the automatic toll system on the roads. It was almost impossible to keep a track of how many we went through and how much it would cost in the end
June 21, 2019
The experience with Centauro was good. Their agent was efficient, clear and informative about regulations, etc.
June 8, 2019
You need a car to get the full enjoyment from the area

the whole Algarve coast is beautiful. I recommend Salem, a tiny and wonderful fishing village
April 29, 2019
We stayed in Carvoeiro with friends. Lovely small town with excellent bars and restaurants. Friendly atmosphere. Good range of accommodation. if you like walking there are plenty beautiful walks. Town is accessible to walk to if you are not in the town centre.

Stayed mostly in the Lagos area, but all the roads easy to drive on, with fleas road signs.
April 7, 2019
Easy to find, good shuttle service, easy local transportation access.
April 2, 2019
The walk from the Terminal to P4 is far from ideal.
March 28, 2019
You definitely want a car - given how cheap it is to rent one here.
March 27, 2019
Faro old town is great but may or may not need a car based on where else you want to go.If staying in Faro no car required.
March 20, 2019
Didn’t visit Faro itself but more Portimao area and hiring a car gives you the flexibility to go where and when you want and great for shopping.
March 19, 2019
I was on a golfing holiday and was supplied with an estate car which gave plenty of space. If your going to play golf try Val do Lobo Ocean & Royal and Pinheiros Altos. Great courses in great condition.
March 18, 2019
Good roads. Good local drivers.
