Traffic in Portugal is on the right-hand side of the road, as in the rest of continental Europe.

When driving your rental car in Portugal, you will find that roads are generally good, and you can reach all major cities with ease, either by motorway or by good, modern roads.

The biggest cities are well served by modern Motorways (most have tolls), and you can travel the full North-South length of the country without ever leaving the motorway, should that be your choice.

However, some secondary roads may be dangerous if proper care is not taken. You will find that Portuguese driving can seem erratic and, frankly, scary to the uninitiated. The country shares with most southern European countries something that the successive Portuguese governments have been trying to fight - terrible road behavior from some drivers.

Be aware that slip off roads at junctions can be short, so slow down well before exiting. Be alert to pedestrians walking on the roads and cars stopping in the road for a chat in villages.

It is probably unwise for those unfamiliar with Portuguese driving to try to drive in Lisbon or Porto. Other Portuguese cities are much better, but often have very narrow roads.

Car rental in Portugal is particularly worthwhile for exploring the area around the Algarve and Alveira. Car Hire International can offer you cars for all terrains and very budget using our CarTrawler car rental search engine to save money.
