Tavira Guide

Tavira is the eastern Algarve's prettiest town, nicknamed by locals as the 'Venice of the Algarve.' Visitors will likely notice that there are many more domestic holidaymakers here than in any other town throughout the Algarve.

Houses dating back to the 18th century line Tavira's streets. Most of these historic houses feature Roman-tiled pyramidal roofs. The town can conveniently be explored on foot. Rua da Liberdade is a stepped street which simply must be climbed to explore the ancient castle's battlement walls.

From the castle, you will have the finest panorama of the church spires in town including the spires of the Igreja da Misericordia, which also boasts a beautifully carved high altar.

A spit of sand cuts the town off from the ocean. The only way to reach this sandbar, which features Praia de Fuzeta and Praia de Tavira beaches, is by speedboat. Perhaps even more beautiful is the beach in Santa Luzia, which is a quaint village situated nearby.

If you've arranged car hire before you arrive, visiting Monte Gordo is a must. Tranquil Monte Gordo is located right on the border with Spain and its beach is particularly popular among children. The waters have warmer temperatures than average, attracting visitors throughout the year.

Olhao can be found west of Tavira. This village enjoys a wonderful location in the stunning Ria da Formosa nature park. Located further west is the popular town of Albufeira, which is the place to head for those who appreciate vibrant nightlife.

There are several car hire firms in Tavira, but the rates charged by local service providers can be expensive. Pre-booking a rental car is highly recommended, with excellent discounts available online.

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).
