Our History

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.
