    Portugal Car Hire Fleet Options

    At the most westerly point of Europe lays a small country full of sunshine, tradition and “Pastéis de Nata”. Portugal, a country of contrasts from north to south, is the perfect place for hiring a car. Collect your car hire in Portugal and drive the length of this country at ease. With a generally slower pace of life, your vehicle will afford you the time to explore properly. Auto Europe has for years worked with many car hire suppliers to bring you the best fleet selection – at the best price. Drive from the wine district of Porto in the north down through the Silver Coast to historical Lisbon. Cross the Vasco da Gama Bridge and head towards rural Alentejo and touristic Algarve. Visit Crusader castles along the way, view walled medieval towns or sit at a café overlooking the Atlantic. With a car hire, time to do as you wish is in your hands. For the perfect car type, please refer to our following guides:

    Why opt for a Mini Car Hire in Portugal

    Mini Car HireCentury old cities await you in Portugal. With many having narrow streets, we would recommend using a Mini car for added manoeuvrability. If travelling with up to two people, these cars are economical to hire and run. Due to their size, they’re also perfect for finding parking within busy city centres such as Lisbon or Porto. Zip down the cobbled streets with a mini vehicle and you’ll enjoy every second.
    Popular Mini Car Hire Models: Smart For Four, Ford KA, Hyundai i10, VW Up, Fiat Panda and many more.

    Why opt for an Economy Car Hire in Portugal

    Economy Car HireSome Portuguese cities are small and easy to get around. If you’re travelling with up to four passengers, then think about hiring an Economy car instead. These vehicles are slightly bigger, yet economical to run. There is enough storage for one large or two small bags and a little more legroom. Fuel consumption is also great, which means you can spend less time refuelling and more time exploring.
    Popular Economy Car Hire Models: Ford Fusion, Renault Clio Estate, Audi A1, Opel Corsa, Ford Fiesta and many more.

    Why opt for a Compact Car Hire in Portugal

    Compact Car Hire If travelling in the north of Portugal, it is advisable due to its hilly areas to hire a Compact car for your trip. The extra engine power will make going up those mountainous areas a breeze. With seating for a maximum of five people, storage for one large or two small bags and greater on-road comfort – this category is perfect for driving between local towns.
    Popular Compact Car Hire Models: Renault Megane, Opel Astra, VW Golf, Ford Focus Estate, Citroen Berlingo and many more.
