Faro is a municipality, the southernmost city and capital of the district of the same name, in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. With an estimated population of 60,995 inhabitants in 2019 (with 39,733 inhabitants in the city proper, making it the biggest city and second most populous municipality in the Algarve (after Loulé) and one of the biggest in Southern Portugal), the municipality covers an area of about 202.57 km2 (78.21 sq mi).
The Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region, is known for its Atlantic beaches and golf resorts. Whitewashed fishing villages on low cliffs overlooking sandy coves were transformed in the 1960s, and now its central coast between Lagos and Faro is lined with villas, hotels, bars and restaurants. The region's western Atlantic coast and rugged interior are less developed.

In the still recent times of the internet, when the first experimental steps were still being taken, we decided to incorporate some e-commerce experiences into our Portugal online platform, namely in the tourism sector, and we started the first car rental sites in the Algarve.
We started Algarve Best Cars back in 2002 in the Algarve with a website to accept car rental reservations even in the early days of using the internet for online reservations. We were the first to turn the corner of the time that was changing. We have won the trust of thousands of customers for our honesty, the reliability of our rental cars, affordable prices, an impeccable and collaborative Algarve rent-a-car service.
We have continued to evolve and follow the technology that is increasingly necessary in customer relations for a more efficient service. Here we have our latest version and we are waiting for you when you book your rental car for your holidays in the Algarve, at Faro airport or any other location in Algarve.
Recently in Algarve Best Cars we managed, throughout a network of partners, to fullfil an existent gap in providing "pick up here, drop off there" anywhere in Portugal, surpassing the constraints imposed by a local car hire firm fleet.
Algarve Best Cars now is able to offer a wide range of cars, from economic car hire small cars to luxury or premium rental cars thus covering a wide range of consumer requirements and offering car hire options from the most prominent international car hire companies to local companies based in the Algarve.
At Algarve Best Cars, customers always have the most varied options for Faro car hire at the cheapest prices on the market.
