Lisbon Car Hire

Lisbon Car Hire

Lisbon is Portugal’s largest city as well as its capital and as you would expect we have quite a few Lisbon car hire offices there ready to cater to your driving demands.

Lisbon is a focal point of many branches of Portuguese culture including finance and commerce but also the arts, education and of course tourism.

Thanks to its southern location, Lisbon benefits from some pretty warm weather all year round with a summer season that usually lasts for half a year between the months of May and October.

This is a very old city, being around since before the Roman conquest of the Iberian peninsula, then being conquered by the Moors in the eight century then by the Crusaders in the 12th; it’s a place that has been very active throughout history.

There are a lot of things to see in Lisbon, ranging from great architectural masterpieces such as the Aqueduto das Aguas Livres, this is an aqueduct built in the 18th century which includes the largest stone arch in the world, to historical neighborhoods such as Chiado or Rossio, Lisbon’s main square.

Chiado is a shopping district with a historical twist while Rossio is a must visit place for all tourists as this is a common meeting place for locals, being the equivalent of Trafalgar Square in London or Shibuya in Tokyo.

These few locations only scratch the surface of the plethora of monuments and places that the city has to offer and this is not even taking into account the world renown museums and galleries that can be found in Lisbon.

Now it has to be said that Lisbon features a great public transport network with the metro working as its backbone but in case you will only be using Lisbon as a home base and you plan in fact to visit the interesting places around it you will benefit from our Lisbon car hire services.

Our available car hire fleet in Lisbon is extremely varied and can satisfy any type of customer demand or requirement but if you plan on renting a car from us during the high tourist season you should consider booking it in advance as this will be the only way that we will be able to guarantee that you will have your car ready for your trip. Besides this, if you hire a car for your Lisbon trip earlier you may actually pay less for it as prices tend to jump as the holiday season approaches.
