Few airports lie as close to the cities they serve as Lisbon Portela Airport, the main gateway to both Portugal and its national capital. This urban airport which once smuggled people throughout Europe during WWII welcomed over 14 million passengers from across Europe, Africa, and the Americas in 2010. The airport's official name comes from its suburban location seven kilometres north of Lisbon's legendary Castle of São Jorge.
Terminal 1, the older of Lisbon Portela Airport's two terminals, handles all international flights, while all domestic flights use the much newer Terminal 2. The airport's departures area contains most of its restaurants and shops, but passengers from outside the European Union may also use a separate duty free shop. A special Lisbon tourism desk stands in the arrivals area. TAP Portugal, the nation's national airline, has its own museum within its Lisbon Portela Airport complex.
Sixt, Budget, Alamo, Avis, Europcar, and Hertz are among the eight companies offering car rental in Lisbon Airport, and are located in the airport's arrivals area. Advance booking is highly recommended during Lisbon's busiest summer season. The airport conveniently stands directly along the A1 motorway, while another major motorway, the A2, runs south of Lisbon.
Few other Lisbon locations offer as many choices to compare car hire as the city's airport. Although the seven kilometres separating Lisbon from its airport may seem to be a short distance, it takes much longer to travel along the A1 during Lisbon's morning and evening rush hours. Drivers drive on the right in Portugal, with many local drivers ignoring lane markings.
Car hire in Lisbon Airport is most efficient for exploring Lisbon's numerous beaches, ranked among Europe's finest. The beach of Carcavelos, just a dozen kilometres west of Lisbon, attracts countless visitors even during the middle of winter, when surfing waves are strongest. A ruined castle stands next to the upscale yachts and modern beach resorts at Cascais, 30kms west of Lisbon.
Refreshing Atlantic Ocean sea breezes help cool off Lisbon's dry and hot summers. The city enjoys an enviable annual average daytime temperature of 21°C and about 3,300 hours of sunshine per year. Temperatures remain warm enough in autumn and fall to enjoy Lisbon's beaches without the summer crowds. Even winter temperatures average a comfortable 14°C during the day, and snow and sleet are rare sightings in Lisbon.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
