KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lagos

  • Due to its popularity and the quality of its beaches, Lagos is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Algarve region of Portugal. This entire stretch of Atlantic Ocean coastline is best discovered with car hire in Lagos, since local transportation lacks the reach, convenience and flexibility to do it justice. The beaches of Monte Gordo are 36 miles east via the A22, while the charms of Lisbon lie 172 miles north along the A2.
  • Book your flight and reserve car hire in Lagos at Faro Airport (FAO) to save time and get your explorations off to an immediate start. Avis, Hertz and Guerin are a few of the local and international providers on hand to equip you with a reliable vehicle so you can drive the 13.5 miles to the town. You can find them at the airport’s car hire centre near the P4 parking lot if you follow the signs from the arrivals hall.
  • Normal traffic patterns in Lagos tend to be moderate during the morning and evening rush hours. That said, the eastern side of the town along the waterfront is always active with vehicular flow, so expect delays on the N125 inbound and outbound during these periods. Anticipate high levels of pedestrian and cycle traffic throughout the town centre during the afternoon hours. Be advised that there is a massive influx of tourists from June to August, which will cause dramatic increases in overall traffic volumes across town.
  • Outside the busy summer season, the peak morning rush lasts from about 07:00 to 08:00. The N125 is an obvious magnet for congestion as it courses through Lagos, and the interchange created with the N120 near the Complexo Desportivo de Lagos is another junction of concern for evening inbound and outbound traffic from 18:00 to 20:00. The entire waterfront complex and the downtown area is a hive of shops and cultural landmarks and so an active area for pedestrian and cycle traffic daily, most notably from 13:00 to 16:00.
  • Book your rental car in Lagos at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Lagos are around 28% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Lagos

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

    A compact or small economy car is the most affordable and fuel-efficient of the lot, plus it will be better at navigating the tight corners on narrow roads in the older sections of town. If the size of your party requires a larger vehicle, then you should consider an intermediate saloon or passenger van which offers the additional advantages of a more comfortable ride over long distances and more luggage space.

  • What’s the speed limit in Lagos?

    Speed limits in the town of Lagos follow the national regulation which is 90km/h (55mph), but you may encounter reduced speed signs in populated districts and the town centre. Along dual carriageways, highways and expressways, the maximum speed mandated by law when driving with Lagos car hire is 120km/h (75mph). Be advised that there may be traffic cameras along major roads and some of the expressways are toll roads, so keep some change handy and drive with caution.

  • Where are the best places to park in Lagos?

    On-street parking is in plentiful supply across the town of Lagos, but is at something of a premium during the peak summer months when the town becomes inundated with tourist traffic. There are several public parking garages near the waterfront and Marina de Lagos which are free of charge. Other pay-and-display car parks can be found around town, where you can pay anywhere from €0.80 (£0.70) to €1.20 (£1.05) depending on the location.

  • How much is the price of fuel in Lagos?

    The average price of fuel in Lagos is $11.72 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of uel costs between $141 and $187, depending on the car size.

  • What is the most popular car hire in Lagos?

    Economy (Renault Clio or similar) is the most frequently booked car hire type in Lagos.

  • Which hire car agencies are at Faro airport (FAO)?

    The only car hire company onsite at Faro airport is Klass Wagen.

One concern I have is that there is no translation of the post-rental documents. They were all in Portuguese.
