About our suppliers:

All our suppliers are major car companies that usual have newer cars then most companies - Do note that in summer months and around holidays you may get older cars. Overbooking rarelly happens but it may happen on some ocasions in late July, early August, Easter and Christmas so always book months before please. From all the feedback that we get from our clients in previous years we always recomend clients to rent thru AVIS or Hertz on our site if they only want the best car / best service possible. As with AVIS or Hertz even price is not always cheaper you are guaranteed the best service here in Portugal as some companies around busy season wil have fleet problems and you may encounter some delays on arrival. We have to be honest about this as only AVIS and Hertz usual guarantee a faster service and better car. Europcar has also a very good and faster service after AVIS and HERTZ.

For persons on a budget you may choose Sadorent, Drive on Holidays, Dollar, Guerin, JAP or Sixt on our site - They are also good companies and in most months all goes very smoothly. All major companies like Avis, Budget, Guerin, Europcar, Hertz and Dollar are inside the arrivals terminal. All other companies (Drive on Holidays, Sadorent, Sixt / JAP, and Mercedes Prestige) are located outside the airports but will deliver the car to you at all airports.

Hope to see you soon in Portugal,
