Review of Dave about our office at Porto - Airport Powered by Google™
finally a company that appears to really get it. They looked after me well, the pick up and drop off was easy and the car was excellent. no hidden fees or scams like a lot of their competitors. returned the car earlier than planned as my work was done quicker that expected. Centauro refunded me the difference and all of the fees within hours o returning the vehicle, which was excellent and much better specification that I had booked. The staff were friendly, helpful and gave the impression they enjoyed their job and cared about the people. Well done Centauro, I will definitely use again.
Review of rui zito about our office at Porto - Airport Powered by Google™
I picked up my car at the Porto airport end of November 2022. A free shuttle bus took us to the Centauro facility, which is 5 minutes from the airport. The banana yellow bus is easy to find outside the terminal. . When we arrived, there were no other customers in the queue. I was served by a very friendly lady. The car had 13,000 km on the clock and was in perfect condition. I had chosen to take the 'all risk' insurance when booking online. Everything went wonderfully well at the reception and at the return. Unlike the information found in other reviews on Google, I had no problems with the payment and/or the debit of my Visa card. I received the deposit back on the same day of the return. I recommend this company.

Review of Nicola Shillito about our office at Porto - Airport Powered by Google™
Great experience. Slightly unsure on arrival where to get the transfer as there was no signage for Centauro but we soon figured it out. We used the premium package, this allowed us to be served first in the queue on arrival and took all the concern of any dents or scratches away, especially as we picked the car up in Porto and returned it to Faro. Car was really clean, almost like new. A deposit was taken to cover fuel and toll charges - the fuel deposit was returned straight away on return of a full tank, but the toll deposit took 1.5 weeks to return. I would definitely use Centauro again, service was efficient!
Review of Nicola Kite about our office at Porto - Airport Powered by Google™
Great service, would highly recommend. Mini bus picked us up at the airport, was friendly and efficient. Arrived at the depot and the gentleman went through all the details/charges and even discussed which car we would like and upgraded us at no extra cost. Car was clean and tidy and run great. Return was easy and quick, with no problems. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

What to see and do and where to visit in Porto with your hire car
Let’s make a quick tour of the Portuguese city. We have thought of an easy itinerary you can do with your car hire in Oporto. You’ll see how easy and fun it will be.
Porto is unreservedly spectacular. Many believe it to be a small town, but its size is magnified due to the many things that you can see and do on your visit. In addition, we are also talking about the second largest city in Portugal, so take advantage of your visit and let’s start to make our way around the beautiful neighbourhoods.
It will be very helpful to rent a car in Porto as this will allow us to travel from one district to another really easily. We recommend that you begin with the ‘Barrio de La Ribera’ which is not to be missed, along the banks of the Duero, a sleepy fisherman’s village with its small bars where you can have a drink.
Take advantage of the proximity of the area and visit the colourful houses of the ‘Barrio de Miragaia’, a very interesting place and a good choice to stay.
We continue with our car hire in Oporto and we go to ‘Baixa’, the centre of the city, the heart of Porto, near to the ‘Avenida de los Aliados’ and the main streets of the city.
There are many different districts in Porto, some very elegant, but we may not have time to visit them all, but don’t leave without seeing the ‘Bairro das Artes’ which has become very popular due to its galleries, shops and café bars.
Visits & tours to the city of Porto
Once you have decided to hire a car in Porto you will find it easy to mover around, especially if you choose any of the recommended organised tours to get to know the city.
Park the car for a little while and walk around by foot. You can also take the tourist bus so you can get to the main streets of the city and you can take a few photographs
Another choice is to take an organised tour so that you can get to know every part of the city, but be aware that these can last nearly 8 hours. You don’t get to walk a lot, half of the time they show you the most famous tourist attraction sites in Porto, like the ‘Mercado do Bolhao’ (market), the ‘Torre dos Clérigos’, the ‘Barrio Da Sé’ , etc.,
You are also offered the possibility to go on a cruise along the river Duero and to end the tour you are offered a wine tasting which as you know, in Porto, wine is sacred!
If you like more rural tourism, you can hire your car in Porto, connect your GPS and choose a route for example to the ‘Valle del Duero’ from Porto. This is definitely worth it. You can visit local farms and take in a wine tasting tour in Oporto to also include local dishes. What a great plan!
‘Cordoaria’ is a must in Porto
Whatever you decide to do, we strongly recommend that you don’t leave Porto without visiting the sights of ‘Cordoaria’ one of the most interesting places in the city centre.
This is a must-see place if you want to see one of the most beautiful and unique areas of this Portuguese city.
When you are here, we recommend that you also visit the ‘Torre de los Clérigos’, which is without a doubt one of the most amazing monuments in Porto.
You will have to take in a bit of exercise as there are a few steps involved, but it is well worth it. The views from the top are breathtaking. A panoramic view over Porto. Here you will be able to take some amazing pictures to remember your visit.
Now, and even though you have chosen a cheap car hire in Porto, we are going to make one of the most enchanting visits of all of the city.
We head to the ‘Lello’ bookshop, chosen by The Guardian newspaper as the Third most beautiful bookstore in the world. We believe, without a doubt that it is the best on the planet!
Go inside and take a look and you will understand what we are talking about. It may interest you to know that the author of Harry Potter who lived for a time in Porto was inspired by the Lello bookstore to recreate some of the magician’s story.
There are many different areas to see of the beautiful city of Porto and for this Reason we recommend that you hire a car in Porto so that you can see as much of it as you can.
