Whether you’re driving through the Algarve, up and down the hilly Douro Valley, or racing around the island of Madeira, it’s just not quite the same when you’re doing it in a small hatchback rental – especially if you’re visiting Portugal for a honeymoon, milestone birthday, or any other special occasion.

What you ideally want is a convertible like a Lamborghini or Ferrari, an SUV like a Range Rover or an Audi SQ7, or something prestigious like a Maserati or even a Rolls-Royce. Even a standard convertible like a Renault Megane Cabrio or a Mini convertible would make the trip that little bit more special.

How luxurious do you want to go?

There are two types of luxury car rental: there’s the rental car that’s nicer than what you normally hire (e.g. a BMW convertible) and then there are Ferraris and Lamborghinis.

The first group of cars might only cost €50 or €100 per day. The second group usually starts at €200-€300 per day.

Medium Luxury Car Rental Companies

Most car hire companies have a few luxurious cars in their fleet. Comparison sites like Skyscanner and Kayak make it easy to search hundreds of these car hire companies at once, narrow down which ones have luxury vehicles, and compare them on price.


Skyscanner’s car hire search allows you to filter to the results to show car rental companies that have premium cars in their fleet. In the filters, on the left hand side, you can select options like ‘convertible’ or ‘SUV’.


Similarly, Kayak allows you to search hundreds of car hire companies and it has filters for ‘convertible’ and ‘luxury’.
