Porto Car Rental Mini Guide

Transport from the airport is best taken by hiring a car and driving to your destination independently, alternatively there is a metro which you can take into the city centre and then choose to book a hire car from in the city itself.   The metro does not operate at night so only taxis can get you away from the airport and the fare reflects their monopoly making car rental the best option.

Porto is Portugal’s second largest city after Lisbon and is the commercial and industrial heart of the country.  Sa Carneiro Airport otherwise known as Porto Airport is ten miles from the city centre and takes flights from all over Europe including from several UK airports.
