When it's time fly home from Portugal, full details of where to return your Algarve hire car to will be listed on your booking confirmation. When you drop your rental car off, the provider will give it a once over before you head off.

Exploring the Algarve

Lots of us end up stuck in one resort when we go away due to lack of transport, but an area as beautiful as the Algarve deserves to be explored. Travel from the vast Vicentine Coast Natural Park in the west, where you can explore rugged cliffs, watch rare birds and surf to the walled old town of Lagos with ease. Alternatively, explore the east coast by taking the coastal N125 road through Altura and the city of Tavira before reaching Faro at the southernmost tip. Hiring a car through us will unlock the Algarve's hidden gems.
