Tips for renting a car in Portugal

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Portugal including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 20 June 2024.
  • If you are traveling with your kids and are planning to get car rentals in Portugal, familiarize yourself with the child car seat laws before you arrive to pick up your vehicle. In Portugal, all children under the height of 135 cm (4’4”) or under the age of 12 years old need to be in a child safety seat in the back seat of the car. If you need a car seat for your child, be sure to request one in advance to ensure availability on the day you pick up your Portugal car rental.
  • If you are getting Portugal car rentals on the mainland, you may want to drive into nearby Spain. If you plan to cross international borders in car rentals in Portugal, you will need to inform your rental agency in advance. You will usually be allowed to do this as both countries are part of the EU, but it may still require extra insurance or paperwork. If you are renting a car on one of the Portuguese islands, you will need to inform the agency if you plan on taking the car on a ferry to visit the other nearby islands.
  • You may encounter some toll roads while driving Portugal rental cars. These include the A1 connecting Lisbon and Porto and the A2 connecting Lisbon and Algarve, among a few others scattered throughout the country. Normally, these tolls are paid automatically from the bank card that is linked to the vehicle's license plate, but as you have a rental car, this will not be your case. Therefore, you will need to confirm with your chosen rental car agency as to how you will be handling tolls. They may provide you with a prepaid pass for an extra fee.
