Top tips for hiring a car in Algarve

  • Enjoy the awesome aura of the Algarve from behind the wheel of your very own car hire. You will find that the roads in the region are very good, with much of them catered for tourism. A small two-wheel drive car will be sufficient to explore the region, as it is relatively flat and easy to drive across. You might benefit from having a smaller car in the urban areas, such as Faro, so that you can navigate the narrow streets and find parking easier. If you want to soak up the fresh sea air and the warm climate in the Algarve, then a convertible might also be a good choice too.
  • It is important that you stick to the laws of the road when you are driving in the Algarve so that you do not get prosecuted by local authorities. If suspected of drink-driving, then you will be requested to do a breath test by the police. The legal limit is 0.5 mg of alcohol per ml of blood, so ensure you are not over this. It is also a requirement that everyone in the car is wearing a seat belt, otherwise they risk being fined. Children under the age of 12, or smaller than 135 cm, must also be in a suitably sized child seat too. It is prohibited to use mobile phones when driving unless you are using a hands-free kit.
  • You can ensure that you help your surroundings when you get your hire car and opt for an eco-friendly option. With hybrid cars, which run on a combination of petrol and electricity, and fully electric cars available, you will be able to reduce your carbon footprint as you go. Before you go for an electric car, check there are suitable charging points close to where you are staying as they can be few and far between in remote areas. Although in urban areas you will be able to locate a place to charge your vehicle. There are also lots of petrol stations throughout the region, should you have a hybrid.
