Trouble with initial booking but otherwise okPros: Once our rental price was final (after the disagreement) the rest of the rental process was pretty easy. A charge for a full tank of gas (66 euro) was added to the hold amount on our card in case we ended up returning the car without a full tank of gas. We were assured tha this was the best price for gas we could get if we needed to refill the whole tank but I am not sure that I believe that based on my calculations and the size of the gas tank. We only had to spend 15 euro to fill the tank in the end even with all of the driving that we did so the 66 euro would not have been worth it for us. The car was in ok condition. Nothing to brag about but we did not experience any trouble with it.Cons: When we arrived for booking we were told that the insurance we had added to our booking through Budget.com (after our Kayak booking) wasn't available and that we would need to purchase insurance directly through the pickup location which was much more expensive. After 20 minutes of disagreeing and discussing the matter our booking was finally lowered close to what we'd originally been quoted with full insurance but we still ended up paying more. Our original booking for three days was $169 but we were quoted instead 179 euro and told that it was the best price. This was very frustrating but we didn't have any option but to accept or go without a car. If we'd had a credit card to book with instead of a visa debit then we would have definitely gone with a more affordable company for our 3 day rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Albufeira

  • 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.

  • You have plenty of choice when it comes to the type of vehicle to go for when you book car hire in Albufeira. Given that you can easily walk from the city centre to all of the beachfront attractions, you can choose a spacious car for travelling in other areas of town and for exploring the Algarve coast. An MPV will make an excellent choice, with its all-round visibility and height affording a good view of the surroundings as you drive. The weather is also conducive to hiring an open-top car and cruising around.

  • The speed limit in the central and suburban areas of Albufeira is 50km/h (around 30mph) and on highways you can travel at 90km/h (just over 55mph). On the motorway from Faro Airport, the speed limit is 120km/h (almost 75mph). Your hire car will have a metric speedometer, so there’s no need to convert in your head every time you see a speed limit sign.

  • On average you will pay around €1.60 (£1.40) per litre for petrol in Albufeira. Seeing as this is a little higher than the UK average, it will pay to shop around a bit to find the cheaper petrol stations. To do that, head away from the city centre and the beachfront to the quieter suburbs and try Carrasquinho & Filhos on Estre De Vale Rabelho.

  • Parking can present a bit of a challenge due to all the visitors that the town attracts – on the other hand it is mostly free all over the city centre. You’ll find free public parking on R. Maria Teresa Semedo de Azevedo and at Parking Puerto Albufeira, to name only two places.
