Auto Rent is a family owned car rental company with over 40 years of experience, in Algarve. Our average fleet is 550 vehicles and we are established at Faro Airport and Praia da Rocha, Portimão.

Our staff is trained and work hard everyday in order to provide a different car hire service to the tourists that visit the Algarve region.


 Auto Rent guarantees a Premium Quality Service with maximum customer attention and high professionalism and transparency.



Auto Rent was established in 1976 with only 6 cars (Mini Morris) at Praia da Rocha, Portimão, with the license of another company and with the tourism market on its main focus. Only in 1986 was legally established and licensed with the name AUTO RENT, Lda.

The dedication and effort of the owners to make the most of its fleet and a customer dedicated and quality service policy since 1st day, resulted in a sustained growth until nowadays.

In 2011 the founder Antonio Jose Valagao is forced to abandon the management of the company due to serious health problems.

From this point, a business digitalization process begins and the company continues to focus on the excellence of service, maintaining a sustainable growth and a young, dynamic and cohesive team that actively contributes to the results achieved.

All team members are committed and motivated to continue this legacy in the future, striving for service excellence by offering superior quality service at competitive prices.

I am probably the champion reviewer for Autorent as I've had over 100 rentals from them and see no reason to change ! The key to good customer service is the staff and at the airport they have always been helpful, friendly. honest and trustworthy. Even on the odd occasion I've contacted head office at Portimao I have been treated with the same courtesy. This is a very professional company and are to be applauded. Thank you Autorent and I hope we continue our relationship.

I Always recommend this company to people as we have been using them at least four times a year for the last few years, always very friendly staff and the cars are very good some times a brand new car, we always go over the car very carefully with the agent and make sure any little scratch is recorded and make sure it is clean on outside and inside before returning.
