16 Jul 2019
Pros: they made everything simple, great experience. Would definitely do the toll control again too.
Cons: the tank size of the hybrid do not allow for long distances per tank.
4.8 Okay
8 Aug 2019
Pros: The staff was accommodating for a late car.
Cons: Our car reservation was made for 10am and was not ready until noon. The staff were not transparent at all with their pricing. They charged us for an additional toll service when we very specifically declined it and they were very vague and evasive when asked about such fees. Very poor experience.
6.4 Good
15 May 2019
Pros: Overall the experience was good. Picked up and dropped off just fine.
Cons: No place to park car when picking up/dropping off. You have to kind of pull the car up on the side walk. It would have been nice to have been told about the tolls and speed traps in a little more detail.
8.0 Excellent
23 Jul 2019
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff. Car was as requested. Good location in Lisbon near a metro stop. Not too hard to get to or from.
Cons: Long line for pick up and seemingly slow rental process.
2.0 Mediocre
23 Jul 2019
Pros: Not much. The front desk folks were nice. Thats about it.
Cons: With in the first 30 minutes of the rental we had to pull in to a service station because we got a tire pressure warning light. The next day the car broke down in the middle of the street. It took an hour to get a tow truck and the taxi they said they ordered for us never came.
3.6 Mediocre
1 Aug 2019
Cons: Overcharged us, drop off was a pain (confusing where to drop the car, waited forever for someone to help us).

Top tips for renting a car in Porto

  • Conveniently explore the second-biggest city in Portugal by booking a hire car. Don’t bother with public transport, timetables, or adhering to schedules, but discover the beauty of Porto in your own time and pace. By using a hire car on your trip, you can also easily reach the scenic coast, which is about 15 minutes by car from the center. The Estádio do Dragao is also over 8 miles from the center and can be reached in under 15 minutes by car.
  • Start your trip to Porto with a hire car at the International Airport Porto, which is about 9 miles away from Porto’s center. Companies like Hertz, Sixt, or Europcar are housed here and, for travelers who book in advance, the car will be provided in front of the airport. Otherwise, signs will direct travelers to the hire car service desk within the airport.
  • The Old Town in Porto has narrow streets and many one-way roads, so it is crucial to stay focused and ensure not to drive in the wrong way. Some of the older streets are also cobblestone, which may not be the best for the car, so parking the vehicle outside the Old Town and then venturing into the historic center of Porto on foot is worth considering. Also bear in mind that, while turn signals are often not used by Portuguese drivers, it should still be done. Passing on the right lane is strictly prohibited and can lead to a fine of up to €600 ($675).
  • During rush hours, Porto can be congested and, since many streets are narrow, this may lead to longer waiting times. Morning traffic is usually the worst between 8 and 9 AM, and in the evenings between 5 and 7 PM. The highways A20 and A41 can have especially heavy traffic during weekdays at these times and should be avoided if possible.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Porto for $9 or less
  • Book your rental car in Porto at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Porto are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average

Where are the best places to park in Porto?

Porto has some blue zone parking spots, which allow free on-street parking for a limited time. Obtain a cardboard disc at the local police station or ask when picking up the car. Set the clock to when you parked and ensure to return in time. Alternatively, parking lots and garages are always a good option, as on-street parking is limited and other cars may block you if parked on the side of the road.
