KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Alvor

  • If you’re looking for the most reliable form of transport for your trip to Alvor, then Alvor car hire is your best option. Many of the cars come with satellite navigation as an optional extra, which gives you complete control of where you explore. It's also great to have access to a car if you are staying in self-catering accommodation, as a trip to be grocery shop is no hassle. Car hire in Alvor will also allow you to explore more of the surrounding areas and means you won't have to rely on local transport or pay for a taxi every time you want to go somewhere that’s slightly further than a stroll away.
  • Faro Airport is the closest airport to the city of Alvor. If you’re planning on going to Alvor for a holiday, the best thing to do would be to rent a vehicle from one of the car hire agencies at Faro Airport and drive from there. The airport is about 56km away from the city, making it the perfect location for car hire in Alvor. Travelling in the comfort of your vehicle will make getting to your destination much easier. If you’d prefer to get to Alvor using other means, there are also loads of car rental offices closer to town for car hire in Alvor. You may want to take this option to save on mileage. You will not need to get a shuttle to the car rental agencies as they are located in the terminal building.
  • Some people who visit Alvor say that the drive from the airport to their destination is slightly terrifying. However, if you stick to the rules of the road and pay attention to road signs, there is nothing to worry about. As is the case with the rest of Europe, you have to drive on the right-hand side of the road and the car. This can take some getting used to, so try to avoid driving at night time when you first get behind the wheel. Make sure you have a reliable satnav system or map. Many of the areas in Alvor are reserved for pedestrians only and you won’t want to end up on the part of the street! Drivers should also take extra care as using a mobile phone while driving in Portugal is against the law.
  • Any European beach side city gets incredibly busy in the summer months. Many people from around the world go to Alvor and other similar cities for their summer holidays. This means the roads are incredibly busy and that traffic jams happen often. You need to take care if you are stuck in traffic as the weather will, most likely, be very hot. Make sure you keep water with you during this time. You should also aim to leave early in the morning and return when the traffic has died down a bit.
  • Book your rental car in Alvor at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Alvor are around 71% cheaper than other car types, on average
