Porto Car Rental Reviews
January 12, 2019
We were driving direct to Spain, we were pre-warned of cross border charge. Appeared that the only way to pay for tolls in portugal was to purchase a transponder for use in the car as the option of paying tolls at a shop within 48 hours of accruing the charges was impossible as we were traveling back to porto on day of flying back home.

Definitely one of the best combinations of City and Beach break across Europe. Food is cheap and very tasty... Pleasant sight seeing experience all around

We loved the Douro valley region and a car was a necessity for sure!

Do rent a car and travel the country, it is very beautiful and lots of history and great beaches. People are friendly, helpful and all young people speak English. Make sure you have a GPS and a transponder. As for rental car agencies, there are some that rent cheap but get you in other ways. Do your home work. I have dealt with drive on holidays before and so far I am pleased. Hope it stays that way.

I would recommend the toll reader for any car. Also a GPS was a great tool.

Porto is relatively cheap to drive a car around particular as parking costs are low. If you're visiting Portugal as a whole, certainly drive around to the smaller cities for a real immersive experience with the locals. Also I would recommend paying the set "Via Verde" autotoll as it saves going to the post office to pay the toll fees. If the ViaVerde is activated, do not worry about using the tolls all the time, quickest way to get around the country!

Very nice city. Liked more than Lisbon. Watching the sunset from the bridge was probably the best part. Don't miss out the bridge climbing attraction (at a different bridge)

We did over 1600 kms of driving through Porto, Douro Region, Cambria, Nazare, Sintra, Lisbon, Lagos, Albufeira, Carvoeira, Evora and Obidos. Renting a car with Android Auto or Apple Car Play is very useful but it is important to know in advance if the car has such features. We had a Garmin GPS for backup but found that it was not accurate enough in smaller towns like Evora or Obidos. It also did not offer the shortest routest that Waze provided. We got a Vodafon Sim card and data plan to help make the navigation in the very narrow old streets less stressful.

Porto is a great city to visit and very economical to eat and stay and you will not need a car to get around. We only hired a car as we left Porto to go north to Villa and tour the northern coastal towns and Spain.

It is great to have the freedom of having a car even though so many told me it is impossible to get around in the cities. It was true for the most part but I liked the flexibility to park it or use it depending on where I was going at any given time. It is by far safe to drive in Portugal and if you stay away from the historical streets and use public transportation for those areas you will be glad you did.
