Quick and Easy Processing
Pros: Staff were quick and friendly. Although the wait in line was a little long. Car itself was in very good condition. Hyundai i30. Only issue I had with it was the parcel shelf in the back had been broken by a previous user and it made noises whilst driving so I had to remove it

Excellent Choice. Friendly Staff. Poor Drop Off Experience
Pros: Friendly, professional and efficient pick up. New car that worked well and was clean.
Cons: The drop off was a bit of a mess. I was sent to one office, then another where there was a queue but initially told I should go back to the first office before being told to join the second office with the long queue ... hope you’re still following. After that I’d to wait a further ten minutes before they realised that most of us in the queue were dropping off so they gave us priority as we had flights to catch. Other than that everything went well.

Cons: We passed a Hertz lot off the freeway, spent a good 15mins trying to get to it only to find out that it wasn't the proper drop-off location. The paper work didn't have an exact address for drop off.

1.5 hour wait to pick up the car :(
Pros: The sales associate that finally helped us was lovely and even upgraded us to a good model at a reasonable price
Cons: The line to pick up was a joke... After getting off the plane the last thing you want to do is stand idly in a queue, and to make matters worse all the other car rental places were queue-free

Bad customer service
Pros: The return of the car was very smooth and the female employee who took care of us was very kind and expedient. The pick up was quick once we had keys and the car was in good condition.
Cons: The women at the counter were not helpful and the service was poor. They did not know the terms and conditions of the company (i.e. what coverage is included in a specific fare) and they didn’t have them handy so we could read them ourselves. After asking several times for them, they realized they were framed in small print on the wall right next to them. The car report was missing several damages so we had to take photos upon picking it up. There also seems to be a glitch on the website as I could not access the terms and conditions for the Avis office in Faro in English, even if that was an option on your menu. This would all have been ok had the Avis staff been more professional and experienced.

Cons: We felt like we were forced into paying for insurance and that this was a hidden fee that made the rental not nearly the deal that we thought it was when we booked online. Staff were helpful and pleasant and the car was fine, but we felt a little bit like we had been taken advantage of.

Cons: Car inspection before and after all done in darkness. We ended up paying for tyre damage which we didn’t do. When they inspected vehicle st the end of the hire they ignored all the dents and bashes shown at pick up but went straight to one of the tyres and pointed out where it had been kerbed!!!!

Top tips for renting a car in Faro

  • Take a scenic drive in your hire car along the coast of Faro. Along the route you’ll run into numerous beaches, golf courses, and fishing villages. There is so much to do and see in the region when you have a car including partying at nightclubs, dining at fine restaurants, or having fun at the amusement park.
  • Algarve is a popular tourist destination in Portugal. Most travelers to this region opt to fly into its capital of Faro because it is the largest and closest airport. Faro International Airport has several hire car companies onsite including Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise. With their offices being a short walk from the terminal, you’ll find it quick and easy to rent a car for your vacation.
  • In Faro, note that many of the freeways have toll stops, so you should become familiar with the fees. Because you don’t know your way around yet, keep to the right when on the highway to stay safe and allow others to pass you with ease. Finally, be aware that drivers in Portugal do not use their turn signals. Consequently, someone could turn quickly in front of you so you should always drive with caution.
  • Although it is a main city, Faro has a population of less than 70,000. Therefore, it does not have a lot of traffic. Its busiest times for driving, however, are between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., when residents are commuting to work, and from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., when they are returning home.
  • Book your rental car in Faro at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Faro?

Most of the cars available at Faro International Airport will likely have manual transmission. If you want an automatic, you’ll have to reserve early and pay more. Additionally, you’ll want to rent a small, compact car so that you can better navigate all of its narrow and winding roads.

How are gas prices in Faro?

On average, regular petrol prices in Faro costs from 5 euros ($5.50) per gallon. “Plus” petrol (or those with higher octane levels) costs more while diesel is slightly less. These rates are more than most other countries in Europe partially due to the cost of fuel tax. In Portugal the price of petrol fluctuates often, so it is a good idea to check online for the lowest petrol prices around town.

Where are the best places to park in Faro?

Much of Faro’s new business developments including its shopping centers are located outside of downtown. Nonetheless, there are many historical and cultural attractions in the old town, such as Faro Cathedral, Arco da Vila, and Faro Municipal Museum. While visiting these sights, you’ll find plenty of parking at Largo de Sao Francisco. Street parking is also possible.
