When you are planning to visit the beautiful country of Portugal, one of the things to consider is the easiest and the most versatile mean of transportation once you are standing on Portuguese soil. This versatile and adequate mean of transportation is, in the most definitive way, a car hire; fortunately, there are car hire agencies all over the Portuguese country, though for better and higher convenience, the most important ones have representative offices inside the different airports.
Such is the case of the Oporto international airport, also known as the Aeroporto Internacional Dr. Francisco de Sá Carneiro after the politician died in a horrible airplane accident when he was arriving at this same airport is also known as the airport of Pedras Rubras. In addition, you can select any accommodation that suits you from inside the airport since many providers of such a service have representational offices located inside the same airport facilities.
A car hire transportation will not only allow you to move from one place to the next in comfort and speed, but also will be a wonderful excuse to explore Portugal at your own pace and with your own preferences without having to hassle yourself with the problems and difficulties that taking public transportation poses.
You can take your car hire or even select one of the cheap car hire services and venture to the neighbouring Maia, Leça do Balio or Leça de Palmeira, all surrounding places to Porto and that are not only worth seeing but experiencing to the fullest of their own potential.
