Car hires in Porto: practical information

Where to rent a car in Porto

Industrial, buzzing, totally cultural, that's Porto. Already booked cheap tickets from London to Porto? Great! Now let's take a look at affordable car hires in Porto too for all those great road trips you'll want to take while on your trip. If you're arriving to Porto via the airport, grab your rent car in Porto from there! The rent-a-car centre in the airport is open daily from 7:00-midnight and includes A.A. Castanheira, Auto Jardim, Avis, Europcar, Hertz, Guerin and Sixt.

If you only need a one way car hire in Porto for just a day or two, why not rent a car from the city centre? Hertz, Atlantisrent, Avis, Guerin, Aiva-Aluguer, etc. are all located in the city centre, in and around the area of Santo Ildefonso. Looking for a car hire from Porto's train station? There are no car rental companies located at Porto's station, but nearby on Rua do Pinheiro and Praca do General Humberto Delgado.

Driving in Porto: parking and other tips

Driving is tricky in Porto. Road conditions vary too, from paves to cobble-stoned and back again which makes not only driving hard, but navigating as well. The tourist district of the city is a maze of small streets and quick-tempered drivers. Parking is also scarce depending on the neighbourhood.

Ideally if you will have a rent car in Porto city then you should book hotels in Porto that have parking facilities. There are only seven in the city centre and most of them are in the Boavista area.

When summer hits, it's time to get out of the city and head to the beach with your discount Porto car hire! Gaia is to the south of Porto and has a number of great beaches: Miramar, Granja and Aguda to name a few. These otherwise sleepy Portuguese cities liven right up when the weather gets warm. Enjoy a glass of wine on a restaurant patio or take a bottle with you down to the beach while on holidays in Porto.
