Car Rental Portimao

About Portimao, Portugal

Portimao is a town in the District of Faro in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. Previously called Vila Nova de Portimao, it was incorporated as a cidade in 1924 and its name was shortened to Portimao. More than 55,000 people live in Portimao, which, together with Faro, is one of the most populous towns in the Algarve region.

Rent a car in Portimao and you can explore the beach paradise of the Algarve at your leisure. Drive from beach to beach until you find your favourite, safe in the knowledge that you don't have to depend on public transport to get where you want to go. You're just 39km from Albufeira and 59km from Lagos.

Portimao itself is best known for sports events. A beach soccer tournament called the Mundialito de Futebol de Praia ('Little World Cup') is held here every summer, and it is also a centre for sailing, surfing and kite-surfing. The Ocean Revival project involved the sinking of four Portuguese Navy Warships to create the biggest single man-made reef structure in the world. Other sports include power-boating and motor sports.

My car rental was handled very professionally and efficiently through your customer service team. I would recommend you to anyone. Excellent rates and service.

Sam Collard, Mar-2012

Very pleased with all aspects of my booking for car hire at Porto Airport. Competitive rate and also good to pay only a small deposit on booking and the balance on pick-up. Very efficient service by Europcar on pick-up. Also pleasantly surprised that I was not charged for an out-of-hours drop-off despite expecting to have to pay an extra 30 euros.

I would thoroughly recommend Nova car hire. The rates were unbeatable and the additional insurance provided peace of mind.

Thank you for your services. We appreciated being able to take our car from Portugal to Spain without any extra charge. The car was clean, ran on the less expensive diesel fuel and had the best rental rate of all agencies we checked! Best Regards from Canada
