The best car rental companies in the Algarve (Faro Airport).

Updated: Oct 20

It's not the most fun preparation when planning your trip so let's be short about it. If you're like me and you're always scared of expensive surprises when renting a car, you're in the right place. I've rented so many cars at different companies for the past (oh my god) 10 years, I have tried almost all of them. I've had some really bad experiences and some really good ones with renting cars in the Algarve. There are 5 companies I always return to. All based at Faro Airport.
