“Easy, but at the end more expensive than expected.”

“Ordering,one car and also cancelling this care and reordering two other cars was really easy. However upon retrieving the car from Budget Car Rental, there were some extra costs involved that were not known in advance, and also the necessity of these costs were not known, or clearly explained on location. Therefore it would be better if these costs could be decided on at time of ordering at EasyTerra, instead of making some split-second decisions upon retrieval of the car. Costs I am talking about concern - fuel (we were "forced" to take the pay in advance, so you don't have to return with a full fuel tank - however we just drove 200km, so the tank was still 70% full; - toll membership for 7 days. However we never drove on a toll-motorway; - extra driver - I ordered two cars on name of the actual drivers, however because I paid with the same creditcard, I had to pay for an extra driver: the one on the credit card - strange. I think I can say that the actual costs of both cars was about 180 euros more than I expected, due to those unexpected extra, but unnecessary costs. I think Budget Car lease is to blame, because at Hertz we never had this kind of negative experience. Next time, it's gonna be Hertz again. Although it may look on first sight more expensive compared to Budget Car, I think that in the end it will be less expensive.”

“EasyTerra; a service to be proud of and satisfied with.”

“"EasyTerra's website is customer-friendly, the search results are clearly displayed and in as far as I can see very competitive and good rates compared with other car rental websites. In addition the standard conditions including collision damage waiver and all other possible costs are known upfront and included. This makes it easy to manage, transparent and easy to compare. And despite the additional costs, EasyTerra remains the most economical provider. My compliments."”

Introduction

Faro is the capital of the Algarve (province of Portugal). The city is a transport hub and a commercial center. In addition, Faro is an interesting city to visit as a tourist.

Population

Faro has about 42,000 inhabitants, which makes it the 22nd largest city in Portugal.

Location

Faro is located in the middle of the south coast of Portugal. This capital of the Algarve is situated in a delta of many dunes and beaches. To the north of Faro, there is a hilly area, which is also interesting to tourists. At less than 100 kilometers to the east of Faro is the Spanish border.

Economy

A large part of Faro's economy depends on transport. Faro is a real transport hub, due to its excellent facilities and location. Faro can be reached by boat, lorry/car, train and airplane. In addition, many companies are located in this coastal city. It is a real commercial center of the Algarve.

Another pillar of Faro's economy is tourism. Every year, many tourists come to the Portuguese Algarve, many of whom travel via Faro, and many of whom also spend their vacation in Faro.

Airports

Throughout the year, there are flights from Faro Airport to Lisbon. These flights take place a few times a day. In the peak season, July to September, there are also direct flights from Faro to Porto (although there is no direct flight the other way round). Air Portugalia and TAP Air Portugal are the two airline companies that use Faro Airport. In the peak season, there are also many flights to and from many European destinations.

Public transport

From Faro, there is a good train connection to, among other places, Lisbon. There is also a good road connection between these two cities. Even by boat, you can reach many other cities from Faro. From the airport many buses drive to and from the city several times a day. Bus Eva is the city bus company in Faro, which, among other things, offers day tickets.

Traffic and Parking

Because of its size, driving in Faro is not very difficult, although here too the Portuguese more adventurous driving style will need some getting used to. However, this will not be too much of a problem. With regard to parking, you are unlikely to encounter much trouble, although during the peak season it may be harder to find a (somewhat affordable) parking space. It may be wise to leave your car just outside the city center, and proceed on foot.

Hotels

In Faro, the prices and availability of hotels depend on the season. In July and August the prices are the highest, and availability the lowest. In January, February, etc. the situation is reversed. This means that during the peak season, we recommend booking in advance.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Hire? at this location
