In general, it is allowed to rent a car from the age of 19 in Portugal, with a license held for at least 1 year. Not all car categories are available to drivers under 25, and an underage fee applies.
You can generally book a one-way rental between our branches in mainland Portugal, depending on the tariff. One-way rentals between branches in the same city are free of charge.
We accept all major credit cards in Portugal, as well as debit cards linked to a credit card network like Visa or MasterCard. Maestro debit cards, prepaid cards and cash are not accepted.
You need a valid driver’s license held for at least 1 year to rent with SIXT. An identity card or passport must be presented along with the license. If the driver’s license is from a country that uses another alphabet (Chinese, Japanese, Cyrillic, etc.), an international driver’s license with a Portuguese translation must be presented.
All our vehicles are equipped with an electronic toll device. If you add this as an extra when booking a car in Portugal, the toll costs will automatically be billed to your credit card without any additional charges.
It is possible to travel to other countries in Europe, although additional charges may apply. It’s best to contact the station you want to rent from if you would like to take your SIXT car outside of Portugal.
