Guimaraes car hire with SIXT

You’ll appreciate car hire in Guimaraes once you’ve arrived and are on the road. The entire town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in a region known as the birthplace of Portugal. We provide almost any model from rugged MPVs if you want to head into the countryside, to economy cars that will give you plenty of cost-effective mileage. No matter which you choose, your car will be on average only 3 months old and will be a late model from top brands like Mercedes, BMW and Volvo. You’ll easily find us near the main transport hubs in the town and will be helped by fluent English-speakers.  


SIXT services in Guimaraes

Our Guimaraes car hire services include useful extras you can book in advance, be that a sat nav unit or a child seat. Our car hire periods are very flexible, giving you a choice of a weekly rental, a long-term rental, and other shorter periods if you’re not staying long. A comfy and spacious saloon will do you nicely here, as will a compact car if you’re on your own. Larger groups like families can have a minibus if preferred to an MPV, and if you’re a real petrolhead, we have convertibles and high-performance sports models.
