Steer off the trodden track

Travelling overseas can be daunting for first-timers but using Budget car hire offers you the assurance of travelling in a reliable, comfortable car with the option of sat nav to ensure you don't get lost. This gives you the chance to sit back, relax and take your time, perusing the marvellous sights of blue skies above quaint villages oozing charm in their remote locations. Heritage and culture abound in this country renowned for its gloriously sunny weather, friendly villages and excellent cuisine. Customs and colourful festivities dotted throughout the year mean all visitors have ample opportunity to really feel a part of it all.

Driving in Portugal requires recognition of the local road laws. Speed limits consist of 120 kph (74 mph) on motorways, 90 kph (55 mph) on open roads and 50 kph (31 mph) in urban areas.

There are also toll roads in Portugal labelled as 'portagem'. Care should be taken in the countryside however as some residents still use animal drawn carts so staying alert at all times is essential.

As with most of Europe all occupants of the car must wear seatbelts and children under the age of twelve must not sit in the front seat.

The capital of Portugal, Lisbon is worth visiting at any time of year. Located in the central Lisboa region the city has a rich history that stretches back over two millennia. The stunning architecture and culture stands testament to this history.

The narrow winding alleyways transport the visitor back through time to a medieval age, a time of discovery when explorers regularly departed the city for the new world.

The use of car rental services however opens up more of the country that simply Lisbon, the cities of Porto and Braga are well worth seeing and give a better understanding of the true Portugal.

Whatever the reasons for visiting Portugal, be it business or pleasure Budget car hire services can provide the ideal transportation solution so that your trip is as enjoyable as possible.

Car Rental in Portugal is the ideal way to make the most of a stay in this wondrous country. Archaeological sites are in abundance in Portugal and should certainly be an element of any visit.

These historically significant attractions allow you to step back in time, from the mysterious prehistoric to the luxurious Roman amphitheatres and villas.

History is ever present in Portugal and car rental services give you the opportunity to see these sites at leisure.

It is not just ancient history however, medieval buildings are numerous and range from imposing hill top castles to spiritual monasteries.

A visit to Portugal however would not be complete without a tour of the magnificent coastline; naturally the Algarve is well known but with beaches on the Atlantic Ocean there is far more to coastal life than purely the south of the country.
Touring the coastline is strongly advisable and a rental car will only ease the journey and make it more enjoyable for all.
