Car Hire in Faro
Your journey starts here
Portugal’s southernmost city gives visitors to the Algarve a taste of the real Portugal. Accelerate out of Faro airport and draw into the medieval town with its narrow cobbled streets that bustle with outdoor cafés. Head to Praia de Faro beach and splash around across sea and lagoon. Back in town find alluring seafood restaurants and dozens of bars and clubs open until the small hours.
Remember, you don’t have to drive full-circle: make the most of one way car hire across Portugal and beyond.
Beyond FaroThere’s much more to explore in the Algarve. Drive through whitewashed villages, like Alte, 34 miles to the northwest of Faro, and the storied town of Lagos (a great daytrip destination, 55 miles to the west of Faro). Continue 20 miles from Alte and you’ll be deep in the Serra de Monchique mountains, hiking boots at the ready.
Especially pleasant beaches can be found on an island nature-reserve just off the town of Tavira, 24 miles to Faro’s northeast.
