Car rental and perhaps cycling Portugal!
In the surroundings of Casa Cantiga you can enjoy clycling. Cycling is a sportive challenge in the hills and mountains but also relaxing at the more flat coastline. The region Estramadura is less known than the Algarve, but as suitable to enjoy cycling in Portugal during your holiday.
At our holiday resort we have some mountain bikes and normal bikes available. Otherwise we co operate with a local bike rental company. This is pleasant because your bike often does not fit in the plain or rental car!
There are many car rental companies available for your holiday in Portugal. It is advised to “shop” between various providers because the price differences can be huge. To book in time always helps to get a good price! Rarely the prices are getting cheaper closer to your holiday period. So do not wait too long after you have booked your plain.
Credit Card and drivers license
To rent a car at the airports you ALWAYS need a credit card and drivers license, both in the name of the driver of the rental car.
If you do not have a credit card, we can organise a pick up from a local car rental company in Alcobaça. This has an extra cost of approx. 90 euro, per single trip. This company assures that your rental car is available at the holiday resort.
If you travel with small kids, child seats are required and can be rented at the car rental. Often this is expensive, while you also often can take your own child seats for free or low fee into the plain. Casa Cantiga also has some child seats available for free. They are from 3 years old and up to availability. Please make a request during your reservation!
