KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Albufeira

  • To get the most out of your visit to this tourist capital of the Algarve, car hire in Albufeira is the way to go. It will give you all the independence you need to be able to strike out on a whim for one of the many tourist spots in the city and along the coast on which it lies. You’ll want to head for the beaches first, and the pick of them is Praia dos Pescadores. You can also go further off the beaten track and visit Krazy World, which is a combination of mini zoo, reptile sanctuary and theme park, or take a 20-minute drive from Albufeira to the Castelo de Paderne ruins.
  • The only international airport in the Algarve is Faro Airport, just under 30 miles away from Albufeira. You can pre-book your car hire and pick up your vehicle at the airport very easily. All the major operators at the airport will deliver your car to the car park located outside the main terminal. It’s a very short walk from the building’s exit. With your Albufeira car hire all sorted out, you can set off on your exploration of the area, or head straight into town if you’re staying in the resort itself.
  • Being a busy tourist resort, Albufeira lends itself to walking around the entire centre of town all the way down to the beach. Naturally the implications for driving are that you need to keep a sharp eye out for pedestrians, and should watch your speed, even if you’re well within the posted speed limit. The old town centre is an area that isn’t particularly conducive to car travel, with its narrow streets lined with fisherman’s cottages. It’s better to park your car and explore this district, Largo Engenheiro Duarte Pacheco, on foot.
  • The combination of residents and tourists in Albufeira creates quite a build-up during rush hour times. These peak between 07:30 and 09:00 in the mornings and again in the late afternoons, usually from around 16:00 to 17:30. Bear in mind that this is a seasonal destination, so congestion is likely to be worse in season, which would be the during the European summer months. At this time of year, be careful during lunch times as well, as many tourists are walking to and from restaurants, particularly on the beachfront. You should also try to avoid main roads like the N125.
  • Book your car hire in Albufeira at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Albufeira are around 78% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Albufeira

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Albufeira?

An MPV will make an excellent choice, with its all-round visibility and height affording a good view of the surroundings as you drive.

The staff at the Albufeira location were kind and helpful with the check-in process and picking up the car. During drop off at the Faro Airport location, the one male employee working the desk was rude and useless when I asked about a charge on my credit card from Sixt which was an amount above what I was told I would be charged.
