We did'nt get neccessary information about card details and deposit in advance, and the staff wasn't helpful at all. Very rude service, it seems like they don't want you to rent the car. I hope I will see my money back, don't waste your time on this company.

He staff members were competent and professional.The original car supplied was smaller than expected for the category. I had to upgrade to fit people/luggage and the upgrade cost was almost as much as the original rental. However, the upgrade was minimally larger and definitely not worth double the cost. That situation was/is infuriating.

Pick up and drop off surpriseThe car was tidyYou wouldn’t expect not to find the company name in Rent a car area in airport if you book pick up/drop off location exactly airport. It comes that you are forced to spend extra half an hour to find the right guy and to get to the rental office (same exercise on the way back). The guys in the office live their lifes instead of serving you..

We were very disappointed that some crucial information is not shared with the customers. We were not informed that every kilometre has an additional fee. We were renting a car just for one day and the overall price ended up being twice as much from what was promised on the day we picked up the car.

Clean small car.The staff seemed annoyed when asked to assist on driving the car from its parked location in the garage which seems obstructed by another rental vehicle. Car was an automatic, but it was not explained that the car can also be placed in a manual mode. In the USA a car is either one or the other. Ok

The place was dark and I didn't realize that it had a huge scratch. I had a hard time explaining the whole situation at the drop off location and had a lot of stress on my first vacation day due to that.

Expect to wait a LONG time when picking up your vehicleCar was fine but had minor damage that I needed to identify before I left in order to avoid being charged upon return. These included a damaged side mirror and small body dent, both of which were noted on my contract (be sure to inspect your car carefully!). Also, be sure you're really proficient at using a manual transmission, which is the default even for higher end cars, as many of the streets in the older parts of Lisbon involve twisting, hilly, single-lane cobblestone roads. I happen to have always driven a manual transmission so it was a non-issue for me. If you're unsure about your proficiency with a manual, pay extra to get an automatic. It's a lot cheaper than rolling backwards into the car behind you on a steep hill and having to deal with insurance, etc.. One more suggestion - be sure to have Google maps (or something similar) available for navigation! If you don't want to incur cell charges you can 'download offline maps' in Google maps which allows you to use navigation without an internet or cellular connection (the GPS chip in your phone does not require either - you just have to have the local maps downloaded to your device). Be sure to download maps for the entire area you plan to drive in (you can define the boundaries graphically when downloading offline maps).It took over an hour just to get to the counter at check-in! They literally hand out numbered tickets when you arrive, as though you're waiting to buy something at a deli. I heard from others who rented cars in Lisbon that this is typical for all companies - not just Budget - so plan accordingly.

They upgraded my car for free.It felt a bit like a scam charging me €100 for a small scratch on the hub cap which was probably not my doing. The guy was a bit too quick to catch it. Also have not received necessary documents for my insurance claim yet.

Centric place into the city to pick-up the carBad and very slow service to receive the car perhaps pushing customer to accept a more expensive option to accelerate the delivery process... mostly when you arrive to the Europcar office with the family and kids waiting more than one hour with an anticipated reservation/schedule already confirmed

I waited 2 hours at the counter waiting for my turn to process my previously made reservation and pick up my car until I finally could not wait any longer (hungry, thirsty, and tired after a long flight) and had to call a relative to pick me up at the airport.More staff, better customer service, at least a waiting lounge with snacks and water. Or get out of the business and do something else.

Staff was great. Difficult to find drop off, as the GPS sent me to a different place. After going around in a circle twice, finally just drove to the terminal and looked for a "rental car" sign. Suggest that all rented GPS have the proper drop off point in the future.The van advertised said it was big enough for 7 people and their luggage. The van at pickup was fine to seat 7 people, but had almost zero room for luggage. Had to go up a class, and it was nearly twice the price. Wish I had know this upfront.

Worst car rental experience everNothingIndividual who processed my car return was curt and rude. No one was around when we arrived so I chose a lane for the car and parked. As we were about to unload an attendant ran up and said we had to move over. The area was incredibly cramped and small as is, and I had barely enough clearance to move the car into the lane he wanted me to be in. So I started moving the car carefully, and even though I had enough clearance on either side, he started yelling at me about how to move the car and seemed frustrated that I wasn’t moving more quickly. Since he clearly had strong opinions on my driving skills, I asked if he could move the car instead. He said "No" at first and continued yelling at me for how to maneuver the car. He only obliged after I stopped moving the car, and even so, he continued barking orders at me like unlocking the car more quickly and even criticized HOW I unlocked the car (I used the door handle and he scoffed saying I should push the "unlock" button instead) Mind you there wasn't a mad rush or anything...no one else was there...things weren't crazy and he was just overwhelmed with work. Absolutely NO excuse for his behavior

Car hire excess insurance in Lisbon

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Lisbon car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Lisbon.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Lisbon car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Lisbon

  • Want the freedom of having your own car while touring Lisbon? If flying into Lisbon International Airport, you’ll find it very easy to rent a car. There are several hire car places located right inside the airport including well-known companies like Hertz, Avis, and Budget. For added convenience, the car hire desks are close to the baggage claim area.
  • After touring the city of Lisbon, you’ll definitely want to take a scenic drive along the coast. On the ride you can take in picturesque views of the water and breathtaking landscapes. If going south to Faro, you can stop at one of a few blue flag beaches for swimming, biking, hiking, or just sunbathing. You’ll also be able to experience a variety of seafood dishes at local restaurants in Sintra or Porto Covo.
  • In Lisbon there are many toll roads which can be inconvenient for drivers not familiar with the city. Plan out your route beforehand and talk with your hire car agent about whether you will need to pay tolls. If you will, you might want to consider pre-paying tolls to avoid unnecessary credit card charges.
  • Most cars in Portugal have manual transmission; therefore, this is what most hire car companies have in stock. So, if you want an automatic, you’ll want to book your hire car far in advance. Note that even if you drive a manual car at home, Lisbon can be a really hilly city with lots of twists and turns. Consequently, you might feel more comfortable with an automatic transmission. When booking your car, you’ll also want to note that renting an automatic car will cost slightly more than a car with a manual transmission.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Lisbon for €16 or less
  • Book your car hire in Lisbon at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hires in Lisbon are around -24% cheaper than other car types, on average
