Explore Estoril

The main attraction in Estoril has got to be the beautiful beach where the rich and famous in Europe bask in the sun along the Praia Estoril Tamariz in the sun. The beach is comprised of soft sand; however, the sea is not recommended for swimming in, as it is heavily polluted. The other drawcards are the sumptuous Palacio Hotel and the huge casino, which offers various gambling and entertainment options.

The Parque Estoril, located in the centre of town, makes for a pleasant walk. The well-kept landscape is best appreciated when it gets dark, then you can walk among the sub-tropical floodlit vegetation. Palm trees are scattered throughout the grounds and many visitors say it resembles ‘a corner of Africa’. Further up the park is the casino complex, where you can enjoy a gamble, or on particular nights there are even dance shows and movie nights available.

July and August are good months for shopping, as the resort holds an open-air handcrafts fair, the Feira do Artesanato, near the casino. The stalls are noted for their ceramics, which come from all over Portugal. Much of the entertainment revolves around the casino and its noted cabaret shows. The Old Fort, which has been converted into a club, is also a popular destination.

An excursion should be made to Lisbon, which is 40 minutes away by car. Here you can wander the twisting, streets of one of Europe’s most picturesque capital cities. Roam around the slightly seedy Alfama, or visit the monuments to the seafaring greats of the past at Belem.

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?

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).
