Good to know when visiting Porto

One-Way Car Hire

It is often possible to drop the car in a separate location at the end of the booking period, simply select a different location during booking to check. 

Flexible Hiring Options

Choose to ‘pay later’ while selecting the car online and you can pay on arrival, better yet cancellation is free any time up to the day of booking!  

Under 25 Car Hire

In Portugal, the minimum age is 19 years old; you must hold a valid licence for at least a year, and please note there’s a surcharge when under 25. 

What to do while in Porto

Once you hire a car, you’ll have the freedom to explore the city and the wider Norte region of Portugal. Take the 40-minute drive to view the enchanting Medieval architecture of Guimarães, the so-called Cradle of Portugal. Torre dos Clérigos is the outstanding landmark in Porto itself, an imposing tower hewn from granite. Then drive down to the riverfront quarter, Cais da Ribeira, where you’ll find plenty of restaurants, pubs and cafes.  

Summer 2021 in Porto

If you’ve opted for car hire when visiting in summer, take a day trip along the coast to Foz and back. This will be an enjoyable 8-hour excursion allowing you to stretch your car’s legs a bit. The Porto Bridge Climb is something nice and unusual to try – you’ll climb up along the arches of Arrábida Bridge for a unique perspective on the city. Or take a cruise on the River Duoro by driving down to the Vila Nova de Gaia riverside promenade.

I reserve with SIXT frequently and made a reservation in the app but then started getting nervous reading the negative reviews. If that is you, don't stress...I had the exact opposite experience to those placing negative reviews. The shuttle was waiting at the airport, the lady driving the shuttle was very kind and courteous and when we got to the branch (which is easy walking distance by the way) there were plenty of people working so the wait was short. Cristiana took care of us, explained everything (to include the toll charge system ..definitely take that). She was the most professional and thorough rep we have ever had at a rental agency. Return was easy and no surprises on the bill afterward. Would rent from there again.

We rented a car on our honeymoon to travel from Porto to Lisbon and Diana and Mario were wonderful! We highly recommend Sixt! Obrigada!

Five stars especially for Diana for her contagious good mood

We waited an hour to get our car, they did a free upgrade for us which were nice. After reading the comments, I bought the full insurance 37 euro per day so I don't need to deal with all the charge after (especially when they gave us a mercedes). Will wait for final bill (2 weeks from now) and complete my review after!

Excellent, excellent service. Even though the reservation system was down, the employees remained calm and handled it perfectly. Check out and check in went very smoothly. By far the best car rental experience I have ever had. Big compliments to the employees.
