Cascais Guide

Guide

The resort town and fishing village of Cascais, located on Portugal’s western coast, attracts swarms of visitors to its beaches, entertainment venues and fine restaurants. However, despite its popularity, the city still retains a quaint feel. The town is easily explored on foot, however, the surrounding environment offers such beautiful scenery and white sandy beaches that it is definitely worth booking car hire in Cascais, so you are able to explore it freely. Book today in advance of travelling to Cascais to secure a car, at a great price.

Explore Cascais

The most important sights in Cascais are its lovely sandy beaches; Praia da Azarujinha, Praia da Bafureira. Praia da Conceicao, Praia da Duquesa, Praia da Grota and Praia da Parede. Travellers can watch bullfights at the Monumental de Cascais or head to the sprawling Parque do Marechal Carmona, where people relax in the extensive grounds, take a boat on the lake or visit the small zoo.

To see a different side of Cascais, take a walk through the old town and visit the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, which includes 18th century murals and a beautiful 16th century altar. There are also a couple of museums worth seeing, including: the Museum of the Sea, which details the town’s seafaring history; and Museo de Conde de Castro Guimaraes, which recreates rich 18th and 19th century life.

Shopping options range from the designer stalls of Shopping Cascais to the markets which surround the Praca de Touros. Nightlife varies from the refined and sedate to throbbing discos; while restaurants serve up some of the best seafood on Portugal’s coast.

If car hire is not for you but you wish to see other sights out of Cascais there is an excursion, which takes tourists to see Boca do Inferno (Mouth of Hell). Over time powerful waves hitting the coast have carved a wide hole, which resembles a mouth, into the cliffs. 'The Mouth of Hell' can be an atmospheric windswept roar if you avoid the many trashy stalls and souvenir sellers. Take the highway towards Guincho and then turn left towards the sea to get there.

Transport

By air
Lisbon International Airport is the closest to Cascais, only a short 32km drive east of Cascais. Car rentals are available here so if this is your arrival destination then ensure you book car hire at Lisbon Airport, and a car will be ready in the rental car park. Car hire suppliers operating in the airport's arrivals hall include, Europcar, Hertz, Avis, and Budget. Book today with us for better deals, and more options.

By land
If you are travelling from Estoril by car, head west for approximately 6kms along route 6 and you will reach Cascais. Trains arrive here from Lisbon every 20 minutes from 05:30 to 01:30. Buses do, however, operate from Lisbon, but with such a fast train journey the majority of travellers use the trains rather than the buses. However, if you're coming to Cascais from Sintra, the bus is your best bet; about a dozen buses a day make the one-hour run.

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? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
