Faro is a land of beauty with plenty to do and see, and that's why we recommend that you rent a car on your next vacation. A rental vehicle lets you drive yourself, which means you have the freedom to plan your must-visit destinations according to your own schedule. There are miles of pristine beaches, natural outdoors, dining and shopping destinations. A taxi or a public bus won't offer the convenience and freedom to check out all that. With a rental car, you enjoy comfort, privacy, and you drive at your own pace.
Are you planning a summer trip to Faro? As much as your taste and preference play a significant role in choosing a rental car. A traveler should also factor in their immediate travel needs. For instance, if you are a solo traveler and you’ll be mostly driving through congested streets, a small economy car that can maneuver through congested roads, narrow streets, and crowded parking lots will be a good choice. On the other hand, a full size van will be a better choice when travelling with a team due to the extra seats and luggage capacity. Likewise, a 4X4 SUV/mini SUV will serve you well if you are planning to visit out-of-town off road places such as Monchique, Lagos coves and cliffs, Ribeira de Seixe, etc.
Your car rental at Faro Airport will typically offer your preferred car at a relatively high price simply because of their close proximity to the airport’s terminals. If you are ready to forego the convenience and time saving that comes with picking your rental car within Faro Airport’s premises, you can take a bus to offsite pickup points where you’ll save a few dollars.
It's always important to ensure that driving your rental car goes smoothly and in your favor throughout your stay in Faro, Portugal. The first thing you'd want is to use a model that you’re more familiar with. You’ll also want to avoid distractions while cruising busy highways. Also, to avoid getting lost, especially if you are visiting the city of Faro for the first time, plan your trip in advance. While at it, look for the best places to fuel your rental car. For example, fuel stations that are further away from the airport, say along route EN 125, IC4, EN 396, etc., are slightly cheaper compared to ones near the airport.
