“Efficient booking system”

“Efficient booking system that clearly showed the vehicles available from each car hire company including their associated cost and insurance service. The 'worry free' filter allowed me to easily identify which deals had full insurance cover without having to trawl through the terms. Will definitely use again.”

Car hire Lisbon


Once the centre of one of Europe’s great maritime nations, Lisbon was way past its prime and looking a bit neglected, but since it spruced up for the World Expo it is now a delightful place to visit. Make your trip more interesting by booking car hire in Lisbon with us. See and explore as much as you possibly can with your own car. Make the decisions on where to visit and avoid the hassle of busy tourist excursions.

Explore Lisbon

Alfama, the oldest district in Lisbon, has a beautiful medieval style with cobbled stone streets on steep slopes. Visit the Castelo de São Jorge, which is located high up on a hill, of the same name. The Cathedral Romanesque Sé is considered as the most important building in Alfama. Take a trip to Casa do Fado to absorb its fascinating history. The Baixa was rebuilt after the devastating 1755 earthquake and is now full of wide avenues and the pedestrianised Rua Augusta, which is full of lovely alfresco cafes and fashion shops.

As the sun sets many holidaymakers take to the streets, especially the Bairro Alto which is popular with many visitors as it comes alive in the evening. It offers an array of beautiful colourful bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. Visit the famous Café A Brasileira and the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara which offers its customers fine dining and views over looking the city, which you'll never forget.

Stroll along the riverfront of the Tejo following your meal, or along the tiled placas and among the tile-fascia’d buildings on the hillside suburbs. By car travellers can also visit the ancient Belem district, Cristo rei and lovely Sintra.


By air
Many airlines have scheduled international services to and from Lisbon airport, often as stopovers en-route to Asian or Middle Eastern destinations. It is also Portugal's main international gateway. There are also regular domestic connections to Faro, Oporto and other cities.

Car hire
Car hire suppliers operating from Lisbon Airport include Auto Jardim, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Gold Car, Guerin and Hertz. Purchase cheap car hire in Lisbon in advance of travel with us to get better offers and a wider range of vehicles to choose from.

By car
Travellers will need to pass through Spain, there are man border crossings, and the road network is good but Portugal has a woeful road safety record. Portugal is part of the schengen visa arrangement, so border crossings are a mere formality from Spain.

By train
There are two main rail routes, one from Paris, via San Sebastien, and one from Madrid. No rail route connects the Algarve with southern Spain. The journey`s can be long and crowded in season, Portugal doesn`t have the high speed trains enjoyed elsewhere in Europe.

By bus
Buses are plentiful from almost any destination and cheap, although budget flights and rail passes are closing the gap.

By boat
From the UK travellers also have the choice of a ferry to northern Spain, and then driving south from there.

Lisbon's popular transportation is the intermodal, Gare do Oriente hub encompassing buses, trains and the metro. There is even a large shopping center and police station here.

Frequently asked questions

Is 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.
