Excellent Choice. Friendly Staff. Poor Drop Off ExperienceFriendly, professional and efficient pick up. New car that worked well and was clean.The drop off was a bit of a mess. I was sent to one office, then another where there was a queue but initially told I should go back to the first office before being told to join the second office with the long queue ... hope you’re still following. After that I’d to wait a further ten minutes before they realised that most of us in the queue were dropping off so they gave us priority as we had flights to catch. Other than that everything went well.

Quick and Easy ProcessingStaff were quick and friendly. Although the wait in line was a little long. Car itself was in very good condition. Hyundai i30. Only issue I had with it was the parcel shelf in the back had been broken by a previous user and it made noises whilst driving so I had to remove it

Bad customer serviceThe return of the car was very smooth and the female employee who took care of us was very kind and expedient. The pick up was quick once we had keys and the car was in good condition.The women at the counter were not helpful and the service was poor. They did not know the terms and conditions of the company (i.e. what coverage is included in a specific fare) and they didn’t have them handy so we could read them ourselves. After asking several times for them, they realized they were framed in small print on the wall right next to them. The car report was missing several damages so we had to take photos upon picking it up. There also seems to be a glitch on the website as I could not access the terms and conditions for the Avis office in Faro in English, even if that was an option on your menu. This would all have been ok had the Avis staff been more professional and experienced.

The staff was quick, clear, friendly, patient and overall highly efficient.The car I requested was unavailable and the car we did receive was not nearly as comfortable or as efficient when it came to fuel economy. I bought an insurance policy through Allianz and it didn't show up in the system which made our pick up a bit more difficult. No fault of the Sixt representativ

There was no experience with Budget. They were closed when we get to pick up point at 21:56. I have tried to call them several times but no answer. We just spend €70 on Uber from the hotel to Faro airport and return because they not wait till 22:00 like should do. Just waste of money

Drop off was easy but I think I got there just before closing - not sure where I could drop off if it was closed.

The staff immediately tried to scam us from the moment that we arrived. Despite the fact that my quote for the rental from Kayak was around $220, the initial contract that the staff presented to us was over 500 euro. I did some research and found that this is a common practice for this location.Absolutely do not rent from the Faro location. If you do, buyer beware!

Dropped rental off in Faro- Simple ProcessDrop off was rather simple. The attendant reviewed our rental and assured us that we were good to go since we'd purchased full insurance. He changed the amount of the hold on our card to remove the gas charge and we signed the receipt agreement and left.

We felt like we were forced into paying for insurance and that this was a hidden fee that made the rental not nearly the deal that we thought it was when we booked online. Staff were helpful and pleasant and the car was fine, but we felt a little bit like we had been taken advantage of.

1.5 hour wait to pick up the car :(The sales associate that finally helped us was lovely and even upgraded us to a good model at a reasonable priceThe line to pick up was a joke... After getting off the plane the last thing you want to do is stand idly in a queue, and to make matters worse all the other car rental places were queue-free

Car hire excess insurance in Faro

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Faro car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Faro.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Faro car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Faro

  • Take a scenic drive in your hire car along the coast of Faro. Along the route you’ll run into numerous beaches, golf courses, and fishing villages. There is so much to do and see in the region when you have a car including partying at nightclubs, dining at fine restaurants, or having fun at the amusement park.
  • Algarve is a popular tourist destination in Portugal. Most travelers to this region opt to fly into its capital of Faro because it is the largest and closest airport. Faro International Airport has several hire car companies onsite including Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise. With their offices being a short walk from the terminal, you’ll find it quick and easy to rent a car for your vacation.
  • In Faro, note that many of the freeways have toll stops, so you should become familiar with the fees. Because you don’t know your way around yet, keep to the right when on the highway to stay safe and allow others to pass you with ease. Finally, be aware that drivers in Portugal do not use their turn signals. Consequently, someone could turn quickly in front of you so you should always drive with caution.
  • Although it is a main city, Faro has a population of less than 70,000. Therefore, it does not have a lot of traffic. Its busiest times for driving, however, are between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., when residents are commuting to work, and from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., when they are returning home.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Faro for $34 or less
  • Book your car hire in Faro at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • On average a car hire in Faro costs $1,352 per month ($45 per day).

  • Most of the cars available at Faro International Airport will likely have manual transmission. If you want an automatic, you’ll have to reserve early and pay more. Additionally, you’ll want to rent a small, compact car so that you can better navigate all of its narrow and winding roads.

  • On the freeway you’ll be able to travel at speeds of up to 75 miles per hour. On most city roads you can keep a consistent speed of 55 mph. However, when you are in residential neighborhoods or rural areas, you will need to slow it down to 30 mph.

  • On average, regular petrol prices in Faro costs from 5 euros ($5.50) per gallon. “Plus” petrol (or those with higher octane levels) costs more while diesel is slightly less. These rates are more than most other countries in Europe partially due to the cost of fuel tax. In Portugal the price of petrol fluctuates often, so it is a good idea to check online for the lowest petrol prices around town.

  • Much of Faro’s new business developments including its shopping centers are located outside of downtown. Nonetheless, there are many historical and cultural attractions in the old town, such as Faro Cathedral, Arco da Vila, and Faro Municipal Museum. While visiting these sights, you’ll find plenty of parking at Largo de Sao Francisco. Street parking is also possible.
