Alvor Guide

Portimao is in the District of Faro on Portugal's southern coast. It is home to several interesting and romantic natural stone formations visible from its prominent Praia da Rocha beach, the cornerstone of the beach resort traffic for this community. This area was once known as Vila Nova de Portimao until 1924, when it was incorporated. It now is home to forty five thousand residents in just the city proper. Alvor is its closest neighbor, sharing in all of the local attractions.

If you were to take your car hire out to examine Alvor and Portimao, you would find yourself, not only admiring the Praia da Rocha beach, but also the Praia da Vau. These are not the only natural attractions of this area, these cities also share room with a nature preserve known as Quinta da Rocha, which has committed itself to over 20 years of research based in local species on everything from flight patterns of the local butterflies, to the breeding of little owls. Alvor and Portimao are very popular locations for birdwatchers, being an ideal setting to survey surf birds.

As Portimao and Alvor are home to a beautiful lagoon that opens up to the sea, are locations with a very mild climate, and offer hot spots, such as bars and night clubs, they have found their way to becoming popular tourism destinations. When the tourists arrive, however, they are quick to see that these cities are not just exciting clubs and breathtaking beaches. The streets remain narrow here, and the buildings are reflective of the time when this was a fishing village. The history still cries out from behind the new structures, and though the cities continue to bloom into contemporary spectacles, they also remain well planted as a tribute to the ancient villages that they gained their roots from.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
