Important information about Faro car hire

Can I drive to Spain with a rental car from Faro?

Yes, most Faro car hire agencies will allow you to cross the border into nearby countries like Spain with no restrictions. However, where you’re allowed to roam, and the specific terms and conditions attached to this will depend on the provider of your car hire in Faro and which category of vehicle you hired. You will need to let your car rental agency know that you intend to take the car out of the country when you pick it up, or preferably in advance of your arrival date. At present, Europcar, Avis, and Hertz will allow you to drive into Spain without paying any fees, while Alamo, Centauro and Goldcar do charge. Be careful about taking the car on a ferry to an island, whether this is outside of Portugal or not. If the hire car breaks down on the island, there will likely be a hefty fee for recovering it back to the pick-up location. Additionally, Sixt forbids travel from the mainland to the autonomous regions of the Azores and Madeira.

Can you hire a car in Faro without a credit card?

Car hire agencies need a payment card for insurance against damage to the car or in the event of other mishaps during the time of your car hire in Faro. While some may not want to use a credit card or prefer using a debit card, not all Faro car hire agencies will take debit cards for security purposes (most will accept it as payment for the booking). Whether a debit card is accepted depends on your car hire agency and the location of the branch. For example, Avis will accept debit cards at their Faro branch while Europcar does not, so be sure to check with your provider regarding your specific location. Compare prices on momondo to find cheap car rentals in Faro, then call or write to ask for more information if the booking confirmation does not specify which cards are accepted.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Faro?

Driving in Portugal means driving on the right-hand side of the road and overtaking on the left. Passing a stationary tram is only permitted where there is an island for passengers to board and alight. When it comes to roundabouts, the rules are the opposite of the UK - traffic on the left has priority. At junctions, vehicles approaching from your right have priority unless you see a sign indicating who has the right of way. Stay safe by keeping an eye out for unlit, animal-drawn carts verging onto main roads. In rural areas, horns should be used before overtaking another driver, while in built-up areas, sounding the horn is not permitted after dark, other than in emergencies.

What documents does an international traveler need to hire a car in Faro?

You will need to have your driving licence with you for your car hire in Faro, and you must have held it for at least a year when starting your rental. In addition, an International Driving Permit is needed if the licence is printed in non-Roman alphabets. Drivers are only required to be 19 years old to hire a car,  but this may depend on the agency and category of vehicle being hired. Make sure to also bring another form of ID, like a passport, and also a credit or debit card in the name that was used to make the booking.
