What are the types of car rental available in Portugal?



    Economy cars are nimble, gas-sipping pocket-friendly cars like Fiat Punto or Volkswagen Polo, are ideal for short trips, very easy to park and have a good luggage space.



    Compact cars are efficient vehicles with ample legroom and luggage capacity. These, usually, comprise small 4-door sedans with a great fuel-economy like Renault Megane and Ford Focus.



    Small families or passengers requiring more leg room and comfort should opt for a mid size car like Audi A3 or Mercedes A-Class. It would cost less than a full-size car and includes 4-door sedans as well as station wagons.



    If you are travelling with family or a large group of passengers then go for a van like Renault Grand or Volkswagen Transporter as these can accommodate around 7-9 passengers.
