    Popular Questions About Renting a Car in Portugal

    How old do you need to be to rent a car in Portugal?

    The minimum age to rent a car in Portugal is 18 years old, and all drivers must have held their license for at least a year. Our trusted suppliers who rent vehicles to 18 year old renters in Portugal include Avis and Budget. Additional suppliers including Europcar and Guerin rent vehicles to drivers 19 and older. Drivers under the age of 25 may be subjected to a young driver surcharge to be paid locally upon pickup that averages between $10-$15 USD each day. This fee is capped at a 10 day maximum so if your booking extends longer than 10 days, you'll only have to pay the fee for the initial 10 days.

    Is an International Driver's Permit required in Portugal?

    Currently, international driver's permits are not required to rent a car in Portugal. Most visitors to Portugal may drive rental cars using their own driver's licenses, depending on their country of origin. U.S. citizens with valid licenses may drive in the country for up to six months, at which point a Portuguese license would be required. EU and EEA citizens may use licenses issued in their home countries as long as they are valid and current, as may residents of Canada, Australia, and South Africa.
