The use of a car makes staying at Drumlin Villa effortless. You can of course use Taxi/Uber etc. to get to and from the villa, but having your own hire car gives far more freedom. Recently we've been using a car hire broker called Zest Car Rental to find the best car hire deals at Faro airport. Previously, we had gone direct with one of the independents at Faro (Drive4Fun), but we've found that Zest often offers more competitive prices.
The other advantages we've found with Zest are:
Remember there will be add-on costs to pay direct to the hire company, for example, cross border charge (if you go to Spain), transponder rental and airport charge. The airport charge is the same for all hire companies but the cross border charge can vary by company.
While the CDW insurance offered by Zest will cover most eventualities in case of an accident, damage to certain parts of the vehicle are excluded
You have the option of taking out additional optional top-up insurance with the hire company to cover these or take out an annual Car Hire Excess policy. A number of companies offer these policies and can be reviewed here.
