Car models and prices on cars-scanner

A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.

Try also to choose different rental points; practice shows that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on where you are planning to pick it up.

Do I have to pay additional local fees?

Planning your trip budget with cars-scanner is easy; when booking, you see the final price of renting a car. No additional fees are charged.

However, when booking, you have the opportunity to include payable options, for example, GPS. You should pay for it later, directly to the rental company.

Booking cancellation & modification policy

You may cancel your order via a special form on the website. Standard cancellation conditions are as follows: free cancellation of order 24 hours before the start of booking. Upon cancellation less than 24 hours, the fine of 50 EUR will be charged. After the date of receipt of a car, the order cannot be cancelled. If a customer does not arrive at the place for renting a car and does not inform Cars-scanner.co.uk about cancellation of the booking, 100% of the order value is withheld. Additionally, in some proposals, cancellation charges may be changed. Be sure to pay attention to the relevant clause in the rental terms.

Return in other city or country

You may take a car to Portugal and return it to another city without any problems. Just search for suitable offers by specifying the return city you need. The search results will show only offers from those companies that allow return in another city. The indicated price already includes a one-way tariff.

Speed limits in Portugal

More often than not, these new impressions of the trip will make you feel a bit reckless mad, making you willing to rush through streets of the city a little faster than the rules prescribe. Do not do this; the size of the fines will unpleasantlysurprise you. Therefore, try to keep within the specified speed limit:

Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.

Payment method

Pay for your booking using MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, or an American Express card.
BE CAREFUL. When you receive a car, you may need a credit card, and you will not be able to use a debit card. You can find further information about details in advance in the Payment Methods section.

Deposit and credit card information

If such a requirement does exist, and you are the holder of a debit card, it is not a problem. Many banks issue debit cards, which are listed as credit cards in the system and have zero limit. Check your card type on www.bindb.com by entering the first 6 digits.

What documents will be required for car receipt?

Driver's license
Credit card
Voucher
PLEASE NOTE

According to the rules of most rental companies of Portugal, the provision of an international driving licence is required.

Traffic violation fines

Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in Portugal. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

Age. Restrictions and extra charges

If you are a driver aged 25 to 65, consider yourself lucky. As a rule, it is this renter's age that establishes the strongest trust at a provider's office and is will result in your being charged at basic rates. Drivers under 25 and over 65 are often forced to pay an extra charge, whether there is an increasing factor and to what extent, you may find out on our website in the Age Restrictions section.

Insurance options

To travel calmly and to not to think about possible damage to the car, take out a full insurance policy; in this case, any difficulties with the car cease to be your concern and fall on the shoulders of an insurance company.

Each car has its own set of features, which are indicated in the insurance document. Be careful when taking it and read through the Insurance Cover section to insure yourself against further surprises.  Example:

Prices for petrol/diesel in Portugal

Try to avoid trips to the city centre with an almost empty tank; it is extremely difficult to find a petrol station in the city centre; they are all based on the outskirts.
Approximate prices for fuel:

Toll highways

There may be toll roads on your way; you may move around them quickly and without traffic jams. You can pay to use them using cash or card.

Is it possible to travel outside the country in which I have rented a car?

In most cases, you may safely cross borders of neighbouring countries in a rented car. But exceptions are also not uncommon; consult the Border Crossing section.
