Using the wrong fuel type for your car hire vehicle:

Putting gasoline into a diesel car (or vice versa) requires the engine to be stripped down and cleaned. If you put the wrong fuel into the car, expect a hefty garage bill and several days with your car "off-the-road" while the car is repaired.

Blow-outs are at your own risk:

If you have a puncture during the rental the car hire company will hold you responsible for the repair/replacement cost. All our cars are delivered with a road-worthy set of tires which are inspected prior to each delivery. Typically, bad parking or driving off-road are the most common causes of punctures during a rental period.

Off-road or negligent use:

Our car hire vehicles in Portugal are rented for use on the public highways of Portugal. They cannot be used off-road. Although a very rare occurrence, we'd like you to be aware that damage to the underside of the car hire vehicle is frequently caused by negligent driving or off-road which is your responsibility. Any accident caused by the driver under the influence of alcohol/drugs, or when no other vehicle is involved is considered negligent use.

Traffic fines:

Traffic fines, speeding tickets incurred at the wheel of your car are at your own risk.

Vehicle glass & locks:

It is a sad reality that in most holiday resorts in Portugal, auto-theft is a day-to-day occurrence. If you park up the car hire vehicle with personal items inside and, as a consequence, the glass or locks are damaged in an attempt to steal your personal effects, you will be responsible for the associated repair costs to the car hire vehicle. We strongly recommend that you park the vehicle in supervised car parks/garages and never leave any personal item inside the car hire vehicle.

Damage to the vehicle's underside:

Damage to the vehicle's underside is the responsibility of the renter. Although a very rare occurrence, damage caused by driving off-road, impacts from rocks or other items to the underside can cause considerable damage to the vehicle. If this situation arises, you will be responsible for the repair costs.

A22 Motorway Toll Road Information


By order of the government since the 8th December 2011 the use of certain areas of the A.22 has a TOLL, attracting a cost electronically monitored per kilometer travelled.

More information from CTT (Post Office) Read more on how it works

The Motorway Toll routes where the billing scheme is exclusively electronic are properly marked with a sign with the words "electronic toll only".

Check the tolls map - the green zones are free of tolls- the orange zones are paid.

There is no TAG device in the rental car but the procedure is as follows:

  • When using the A.22, the rental vehicles registration number will be picked up automatically when passing the overhead scanners at the various locations. This will determine how many zones you pass through on your journey.
  • Each zone has different prices, but the price per kilometer is approximately 9 cents (e.g. From Vila Real de Santo António to Lagos - € 11.60).
  • If the payment for the use of the A.22 has not been made, the rental car company is obliged by law to provide details of the renter/driver of the hire vehicle to the TOLL collection agency.
  • The customer will then be billed to his/her home address for payment of TOLLS on the A.22


  • The customer can go to any post office to pay for the TOLLS 48 to 72 hours after using it.
    Take with you to Post office, the rental agreement document to determine the Vehicle’s Registration Number. Then the Database will be checked to determine the value of the TOLLS.
  • If you wish to can buy a prepaid 3 days device at the Post office.
  • You can pay at the post offices 48hrs. after you have used the A22 but before 72hrs. - to avoid any surcharges - if not, you will then receive the charges to pay at home.
  • You can use the EN 125 which is free.
  • It's better not use the A22 on last day of holiday because you have no way of paying.


In the event where the customer doesn’t go to one of these Pay-shops or Post Offices to pay the TOLL, the rental car company will receive notification of the value of the outstanding TOLL that has to be paid for that date on the vehicle.
We will then provide the customer’s details and a copy of the Rental Agreement to the toll’s company and they will issue an INVOICE to the renter at his/her home address.

To avoid TOLL charges is to use the EN 125 – specially on your last two or three days of your holidays as you will not be able to pay so will certainly receive bill at home with an extra fee.
