KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Albufeira

  • Choose a car with air conditioning when you book cheap car hire in Albufeira, as it can get hot and humid, especially during the summer months. The worst traffic can often be found in the city centre, which can get very uncomfortable in the summer weather. Driving along the Avenida dos Descobrimentos, which runs along the coast can also be slow going when it comes to traffic congestion. Having air conditioning will make your journey more comfortable and enjoyable, allowing you to concentrate on the stunning views of the coastline. Albufeira has a number of other attractions, and cheap car hire in Albufeira gives you the freedom to explore them all. For example, you can drive to the Zoomarine water park, which is located 10 km from Albufeira, or the Algarve Shopping Mall, near the city centre.
  • Driving in Albufeira can be an enjoyable experience if you keep in mind the unique features of the roads. The landscape surrounding the city is stunning, with hills, beaches, and small villages dotted around the area. By hiring a car, you can explore the hidden gems that the Algarve has to offer. For example, you can drive to the nearby town of Carvoeiro, which has stunning cliff formations and a small beach known as Praia do Paraíso. Alternatively, you can explore the quaint village of Porches, which is famous for its pottery and has a lovely local market on Saturdays. Albufeira is known for having narrow and winding roads, especially in the older parts of the town. Some of the areas that are known for having winding roads include the old town of Albufeira, Paderne, and the hills around the village of Alte.
  • When you book cheap car hire in Albufeira, it's important to choose the right size and type of car. If you plan to drive on narrow and winding roads, it's best to rent a smaller car that is easier to manoeuvre. If you're travelling with a group or have a lot of luggage, you may need a larger car. When you take day trips to nearby towns or explore the countryside, consider Albufeira car hire with a four-wheel drive or a higher clearance. If you plan to spend most of your time driving on paved roads, a regular sedan or compact car will suffice.
  • To get the most out of your visit to this tourist capital of the Algarve, car hire in Albufeira is the way to go. It will give you all the independence you need to be able to strike out on a whim for one of the many tourist spots in the city and along the coast on which it lies. You’ll want to head for the beaches first, and the pick of them is Praia dos Pescadores. You can also go further off the beaten track and visit Krazy World, which is a combination of mini zoo, reptile sanctuary and theme park, or take a 20-minute drive from Albufeira to the Castelo de Paderne ruins.
  • The only international airport in the Algarve is Faro Airport, just under 30 miles away from Albufeira. You can pre-book your car hire and pick up your vehicle at the airport very easily. All the major operators at the airport will deliver your car to the car park located outside the main terminal. It’s a very short walk from the building’s exit. With your Albufeira car hire all sorted out, you can set off on your exploration of the area, or head straight into town if you’re staying in the resort itself.
  • Being a busy tourist resort, Albufeira lends itself to walking around the entire centre of town all the way down to the beach. Naturally the implications for driving are that you need to keep a sharp eye out for pedestrians, and should watch your speed, even if you’re well within the posted speed limit. The old town centre is an area that isn’t particularly conducive to car travel, with its narrow streets lined with fisherman’s cottages. It’s better to park your car and explore this district, Largo Engenheiro Duarte Pacheco, on foot.
  • The combination of residents and tourists in Albufeira creates quite a build-up during rush hour times. These peak between 07:30 and 09:00 in the mornings and again in the late afternoons, usually from around 16:00 to 17:30. Bear in mind that this is a seasonal destination, so congestion is likely to be worse in season, which would be the during the European summer months. At this time of year, be careful during lunch times as well, as many tourists are walking to and from restaurants, particularly on the beachfront. You should also try to avoid main roads like the N125.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Albufeira?

    You have plenty of choice when it comes to the type of vehicle to go for when you book car hire in Albufeira.

The staff at the Albufeira location were kind and helpful with the check-in process and picking up the car. During drop off at the Faro Airport location, the one male employee working the desk was rude and useless when I asked about a charge on my credit card from Sixt which was an amount above what I was told I would be charged.

Car hire insurance in Albufeira

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Albufeira car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Albufeira.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Albufeira car hire.
