Hi,

When I was travelling from the UK to Portugal ans needed to hire a car I used Zest Car Rental  https://www.zestcarrental.com   They are an agency which uses a variety of actual rental firms at each airport. I never had any problems with any cars I hired through them, and never had any issues with extra fees/charges after the hire.

As to the actual care hire firm, if I remember correctly, I have used both RentAuto and Centauro, which are still listed as options for Lisbon airport.

We have used Zest for a number of years and can recommend them without reservation. As said above they are a broker. Charges are transparent, customer service excellent. We regularly 'test the market' but always revert to Zest: especially competitive if there are additional drivers for which there are, in our experience, no additional charges.
