Customer questions about Praia de Luz car hire

Is it possible to pick the car up in Prai De Luz? What is the policy on fuel on return. Do I need to leave a deposit on collection?

Hi, yes we can arrange that, if you let me know your rental dates / times I can prepare a quote for you. There will be an excess deposit required on collection, I can confirm the amount once we have selected a car as it varies from agent to agent and car type. We offer a Full Protection insurance to protect that however which is worth considering.

Praia da Luz Mini Guide

Praia da Luz, which translates as the beach of light, is a popular holiday resort in Portugal and is situated about six kilometres from Lagos. The golden sands of Praia da Luz form a gentle shelf which slopes into the Atlantic Ocean. Behind them are some multi-coloured sandstone cliffs which have been formed over many centuries and provide a beautiful backdrop. The Rocha Negra (Black Rock) is another reminder of the volcanic activity which has created this part of the coastline of Portugal.

Praia da Luz is particularly good for water sports and has also been awarded the Blue Flag in recognition of its cleanliness and how well managed it is. Visitors here can swim and snorkel or even try and tame the waves once they have rented surfboards and wet suits. When the conditions are good there can be great swells here and some fun waves.
 
All of these activities can be enjoyed in completely safe conditions. The beach area is cordoned off so that swimmers and surfers will not be put in danger by any boats and there is a 24 hour life guard on hand should anyone need assistance. The quaint village of Praia da Luz is worth exploring as well and there is a beautiful old church which has survived an earthquake. Getting to Praia da Luz is simple with budget airlines operating to and from Faro. Pre-booking car hire at Faro Airport with Rhino is a great way to start your holiday!
