Faro is the capital of the Algarve region of Portugal. Rather than bearing the hallmarks of an average Algarve resort, Faro has an abundance of character all of its own. The winding streets of the Old Town, known as Cidade Velha, are completely charming, and when you want something more vibrant head for the Rua do Prior, or the Rua Dr. Francisco Gomes, where You'll find plenty of shops and restaurants. Faro Cathedral and Carmo Church illustrate Faro's intriguing religious heritage.
Car hire in Faro means you can explore the beautiful sweeping beaches in the Faro district. You can find our branches in Faro Airport or the city itself.
Exploring Faro's fascinating heritage is where most trips to the city begin. Seek out the Carmo Church and the absorbing Chapel of Bones (Capela Del Ossos) - then head for the atmospheric winding streets of Faro Old Town - the Faro Archaeological Museum is also worth a look.
Relax on the city's sprawling beach known as Praia de Faro, or if you're hiring a car in Faro, perhaps You'll head up the coast to Praia da Falesia, which is considered one of the most dramatic beaches on the southern coast. Rent a car in Faro, and the renowned Zoomarine Park is just a shade further along the coast; the park is considered an ideal venue for families.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
