The agency offers an inventory of late-model vehicles including saloons, SUVs, vans and the ever-popular compact vehicles to suit every style and budget. Select a standard or automatic model according to preference and get set for exciting road travels around Faro and the picturesque Algarve region in southern Portugal. Praia da Barrinha Beach is a great spot for working your tan about 11 km (7 miles) from the city centre while a road trip to Lagos is about 95 km (60 miles) west via A22.
  • You should be at least 21 years old with minimum one year’s driving experience to book Thrifty car hire in Faro and all drivers below age 25 at the time of booking will be assessed surcharge fees. The best location to book Thrifty car hire in Faro is Faro Airport where there’s a car hire centre.
