Car hire from Faro Airport

Hi there,

I am travelling to Portugal next month with my husband and our 2 year old son. Would anyone be able to recommend a reputable, decently priced car hire company to get a quote from please?

We would be picking up and returning the car from Faro and will be staying in Alvor.

Thanks a million in advance.

Have used travelrent.pt for several years both directly and through search engines and always found them very competitive and never had any problems . No hard selling of extras .

Please Please search the Algarve forums for all the recent posts about the current trials and tribulations of hiring a car in the Algarve. (or Faro Airport)

This issue continues to be done to death.

In short, don't go cheap but stick to firms such as luzcar.com and zitauto which are consistently reports to offer good service or go with one of the big boys such as AVIS.

Guerin seems to be the cheapest but you would have to waste 4 hours of your life waiting to get your car.

Otherwise they have Avis and Europcar ("National" in the US).

Also inquire about prepaid toll (€18 with Guerin) for unlimited toll road use

Please only use Air Autos if you want to get your holiday off to a very bad start and an even worse end. Their cars as awful and the Air Autos guy in the kisok is rude and very unhelpful. Frankly I would rather walk then use them again.
