KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Guimarães

  • Guimaraes is a city rich in history and culture, known as the "birthplace of Portugal." Driving a car hire in Guimaraes allows you to conveniently visit historical sites within and around the city, such as the Guimaraes Castle, the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza, and the nearby Bom Jesus do Monte. Moreover, Guimaraes is surrounded by beautiful natural parks, including the Peneda-Geres National Park. Having a car enables you to easily access these parks, explore their scenic beauty, and engage in outdoor activities such as hiking, wildlife spotting, or picnicking.
  • If you are flying into Portugal, then the closest airport to Guimarães is Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport (OPO). It is located in Porto, approximately 54 km (34 miles) southwest of Guimarães. It is the second-largest airport in Portugal and serves as a major international gateway. You can hire a car from the airport from the Car Hire Centre, in the Arrivals hall on Level 0. The drive from Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport to Guimarães typically takes around 40 minutes, depending on the traffic conditions and the route you take.
  • It is important to be aware of the fact that Guimarães is known for its historic city centre with narrow and winding streets. Manoeuvring through these streets can be challenging, especially for larger vehicles. Be cautious of oncoming traffic and pedestrians, and drive at a moderate speed to navigate safely. You should also watch out for pedestrians and cyclists when driving in Guimarães. Stay vigilant and watch out for pedestrians crossing the road, particularly in busy areas and near crossings. Give cyclists enough space and be cautious when overtaking them.
  • Like many urban areas, Guimarães can experience traffic congestion, especially during peak hours (08:00 to 10:00 and 17:00 until 19:00), or in popular tourist areas. Plan your routes accordingly and be prepared for potential delays. Plus, if you are travelling to Guimarães outside the summer months, then be prepared for varying weather conditions, such as rain or fog, which can affect visibility and road conditions. Adjust your driving to the weather and use headlights when necessary.
  • Book your car hire in Guimarães at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

If you are planning to explore the surrounding areas or take longer trips, choosing a car with good fuel efficiency can help you save on fuel costs.
