Lisbon Airport Guide

Car Hire

Being one of the major hubs in Europe, Lisbon Portela Airport receives around 14 million passengers a year. It is the main gateway to Portugal and the country's capital, Lisbon. It is less than five miles from the city centre and is easily reached by the new Lisbon Metro extension and a number of bus lines. Driving from here to the city or vice-versa is easy as the roads to the 2ª Circular (Avenida Marechal Craveiro Lopes), the main access road to the airport, are well signposted.

Who to Book With
Car hire companies operating at Lisbon Portela Airport include Hertz, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Guerin, Goldcar Rental and Auto-Jardim. The desks of these companies are at the southern end of the Arrivals area. There is a specific area for car rental returns―between car parks P1 and P2, to the south of the main terminal building.

Need to Know Essentials
When collecting a hire car, the renter will need to present the following:

- National or international driving licence
- Official documentation with a photo, such as a passport
- Credit card used for the booking

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
Credit cards can be used at most petrol stations but it is advisable to check with your car supplier prior to travel. A £0.40 tax is levied on most credit card transactions. Seatbelts are required for front seat as well as rear seat passengers, if fitted. When driving in Portugal, it is compulsory to carry photographic proof of identity, a reflective jacket, a warning triangle and a temporary electronic toll device (should you wish to avoid paying toll fees in cash).

More useful information about driving in Portugal can be found in our guide here.

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.
