While some of you will choose to stay in the capital of Portugal and plan your holidays with various guided tours of Lisbon, others will prefer the freedom and discovery of the city and its region by themselves. In this case you will need to rent a car at Lisbon airport. Renting a car for holidays is a real budget, that’s why I have found a good plan that could help you to rent it cheaper.

Great car hire deals in Lisbon

I insist on car rental at Lisbon airport since most of you will be arriving directly by plane. You could initially take a taxi in Lisbon and its airport but the queue is endless and will give you a cold sweat after your long flight. This is not the ideal way to start your holiday in Portugal.

Jumping on the first agency at the airport is not the best solution either, the prices will surely not be the cheapest. I advise you to go to this price comparator for car rental in Lisbon. You can choose to rent in the capital or at the airport and for a good look, the comparator includes the majority of agencies and you will be able to see the ratings of each of them. I think this is the best way to combine quality and price.

  • Fill in your dates for the rental and return of the car.
  • Choose the rental location “Lisbon Airport” if it is the most convenient for you.
  • Launch the comparison, which is rather intuitive to read.



The website will compare the prices of car rentals in Lisbon for your holiday period from all the car rental agencies such as Hertz, Avis, Europcar, Centauro or Sixt and will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive according to the type of car you want to rent at Lisbon airport or elsewhere in the city.
I haven’t found a better website than this one to compare prices and find the most interesting one.

Road Trip by car around Lisbon

Renting a car at the airport will allow you to be mobile during your holidays and to visit Lisbon or its region without transport problems. All these places are of course served by trains or buses but if you have children, car rental is the best option.

Among all the places that I advise you if this is your first trip to the Lisbon area, take a look at the ones below which will leave you with very good memories:

Portinho da Arrábida: natural park, sandy beach and turquoise water. A spot not to be missed which is located south of Lisbon. On the road, take the opportunity to go to the statue of Cristo Rei: it’s touristic, paying but you can climb to the top at 75 meters and have a breathtaking view of Lisbon. My advice to you, I loved it.

Sesimbra: for those who want to discover the history of Portugal, its traditions and its origins. Setubal is located south of Lisbon and you can get there with your rental car. On the program: Convent of Jesus, authentic bocage square, church of São Julião and tasting of very good Portuguese wines.

Cascais: formerly a small fishing village that has since grown up but has lost none of its charm, especially when you stroll through the narrow streets around the centre. This village is located west of Lisbon following the Tagus river and will take you to the beautiful beach of Guincho (Watch out for the wind!).

Cabo da Roca: this is the westernmost point of Europe and Portugal. Not far from Cascais, enjoy the scenery, the sea air and admire the lighthouse. After? the Atlantic Ocean as far as the eye can see!

Sintra: very beautiful village with its historical heart and the Pena Palace on the top of the Sintra hills. Historical visits, typical markets, breathtaking views, cobbled streets… A tip: park lower down and take a tuk tuk to go up to the top! Also visit the Regaleira Palace, the initiatory well and the Terrace of Heavenly Worlds in this area.

Nazaré: located northwest of Lisbon, this village has kept its authenticity despite its worldwide fame in the surfing world. Beaches by the sea, surfing competitions and giant waves. Nazaré is located just north of a town where you can take surfing lessons, Ericeira !

Cheap Car rental in Lisbon: Your Best Deals

Good deal Lisbon airport car rental

I try on this page and this website to share the good information I find to visit Lisbon at the best price and with activities or things to see that could be the most enjoyable for a short stay in Portugal.

This page is dedicated to car rental at Lisbon airport or elsewhere in the city but you may have during your holidays had bad experiences with a particular car rental company. Or you may have found a good place to rent a cheap car, which I am sure would be of great interest to the readers of this site.

In either case, don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail with the information I will relay on this page. I came from France with my car (Yes the registration of the car in Portugal was a real hassle), so I personally don’t need to rent a car in Lisbon.
