KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Praia do Carvoeiro

  • When you choose a car hire in Praia do Carvoeiro, you can easily explore the surrounding coastal region and visit nearby attractions, like the Arrozal Nossa birdwatching nature reserve or the Parque de Mina Farm, which are not accessible via public transport. Although public transport to many attractions is available from Praia do Carvoeiro, you will find that trams and buses get very crowded, especially during the summer months. Choosing car hire in Praia do Carvoeiro can help you avoid the crowds and set your own schedule.
  • If you’re travelling to Praia do Carvoeiro via Faro Airport (FAO), you will find a wide range of car hire companies available, so you can pick up your hired car at the terminals. Arriving passengers will find car hire centres located inside the terminal and directly outside the building, next to the airport car parks. There is also a 24h fuel station located just outside the airport.
  • Praia do Carvoeiro is a popular area with hikers, so make sure you drive slowly on rural roads that do not have good visibility. You should also watch out for tourists walking near popular beaches and take care going around bends on winding roads, as you may come across cyclists. It is also a good idea to keep your speed low when driving on winding roads or hilly routes with poor visibility. Experienced local drivers often exceed the speed limit, so you may need to stop quickly if you encounter another vehicle on a bend.
  • Driving conditions in Portugal are generally favourable, especially on major routes and highways, which often have very little traffic and congestion. If you are using Praia do Carvoeiro car hire during the height of summer, you may find that the coastal roads get quite busy or that parking in popular spots may be more difficult. You may also want to avoid the weekday rush hours, which generally fall between 07:00-10:00 and between 17:00-20:00 in Portugal.
  • Book your rental car in Praia do Carvoeiro at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Praia do Carvoeiro are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Praia do Carvoeiro?

    When choosing a car hire in Praia do Carvoeiro, you should think about the type of driving you will do during your stay to pick the right vehicle for you. Larger vehicles, like SUVs or people carriers, are perfect for driving on Portugal’s spacious main roads. Choosing a larger vehicle will also give you plenty of space for hiking and camping equipment. Being high up in a larger car will also give you great views of the area’s stunning coastline. However, if you plan to spend a lot of time in nearby cities, like Faro or Lagos, you may find a smaller vehicle easier to manoeuvre in the old town areas, where the streets are narrower and turns and junctions are tighter.

  • What’s the speed limit in Praia do Carvoeiro?

    Motorists should pay close attention to the speed limits when driving in Portugal as speeding fines can be extremely pricey (up to €2,500) and speed cameras are used throughout the country. When you’re driving in Praia do Carvoeiro, you should watch out for local speed limit signs, as these may differ between regions. In general, speed limits in Portugal sit at 50 km/h (30 mph) in urban areas, 90-100 km/h (55-65 mph) on rural roads, and 120 km/h (75 mph) on motorways.

  • Where are the best places to park in Praia do Carvoeiro?

    Visitors to Praia do Carvoeiro will find numerous free car parks at coastal beauty spots and in the town itself. Nearby scenic attractions, like the Praia do Vale da Lapa and the Geoformas Carsicas hiking area, have free parking located just a short walk from the sites themselves. You will also find free 24h parking on Praia do Carvoeiro’s main street, located close to tourist beaches, shops, and places to eat. If you do find yourself needing to use paid parking while in Praia do Carvoeiro, you will usually pay around €5 (£4) in rural areas and up to €10 (£9) in the nearby cities. Make sure you lock your vehicle if you are leaving it parked in a remote area, and be aware that you should not camp in vans or motorhomes overnight in areas that are not official campsites.
