Pombal Guide

With a population of over fifty eight thousand inhabitants, the municipality of Pombal is maybe not the largest, but this member of the district of Lieria is still an important member of Portugal, and hosts seventeen parishes. You may have heard the term Pombaline architecture. In Lisbon, a Downtown Pombaline area, you will find the first earthquake resistant architectural models which were tested by marching troops around them. These were built after an earthquake that is estimated to have been a 9 on the Richter scale. The town felt the after effects of both tsunami and fire subsequently, and Sebastiao Jose de Carvalho e Melo, Marquis of Pombal, was quoted as saying, "What now? We bury the dead and feed the living." This earthquake resistant architecture was the first of its kind.

North of Lisbon is Leira. In 1466 this was the home of the first Portuguese printing press. It also is the site of a restored medieval castle, c.1300, and a church which was erected in 1135, and still remains today. You can also feast your eyes on a Renaissance cathedral here. This town was originally the property of the Romans, known as Collippo, until the Moors captured it in the 8th century. Your car hire can navigate you through several historic landmarks remaining from that time in the municipality of Pombal.

As in much of Portugal, Pombal is an area with rich agricultural roots. You can find farms of crops from corn, to olives, to vineyards. Though this region may not be the place to visit for elite dance clubs and exclusive beaches, if you are in search of a region where you may lay eyes on several medieval buildings that remain from the times of Roman occupation, as well as to sample local epicurean delicacies that capture the freshness of the local fare, then you have arrived.

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).
