Car Hire &  Guarda Mini Guide

Guarda is the biggest city and capital of the region of Portugal known as Beiras.  If you are thinking of hiring a car in Guarda, Portugal, here are some considerations and information to help you:

1. Accessibility and Nearest Airport:

Guarda is a city located in the central part of Portugal, and the nearest major airport is Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport (OPO) in Porto, which is approximately 2.5 to 3 hours away by car. You can also consider using Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS), which is about a 3.5 to 4-hour drive from Guarda.

2. Road Network and Navigation:

Portugal has a well-maintained road network, and major highways and expressways connect cities and regions. Roads in Portugal are generally in good condition.
Navigation can be made easier with GPS devices or smartphone apps, which are widely used by travelers.

3. Driving to Nearby Places:

If you plan to explore beyond Guarda, renting a car can provide more flexibility and access to nearby attractions and destinations, including:

Serra da Estrela: Portugal's highest mountain range is located near Guarda. It's a great place for hiking, skiing (in the winter), and enjoying beautiful landscapes.
Covilhã: This nearby city is known for its historic center and proximity to the Serra da Estrela.
Viseu: Located to the west, Viseu is known for its historic architecture and cultural attractions.
Coimbra: A larger city with a rich history, Coimbra is about a 2.5 to 3-hour drive from Guarda.
Porto and Lisbon: If you're willing to take longer road trips, you can reach Portugal's major cities, Porto and Lisbon, from Guarda. Both cities offer a wide range of attractions.

5. Considerations:

Renting a car can offer convenience and flexibility for exploring the region around Guarda, especially if you plan to visit remote areas or destinations not easily accessible by public transportation. Driving in Portugal follows standard European traffic rules, but you should be aware of local driving customs and road signs. Ensure you have the necessary documentation, including a valid driver's license, insurance, and any required international driving permits.
