Alerts and Cautions in Portugal

CarTrawler possibly has the best prices
on Car Rentals

Be careful when driving in Portugal. Driving in the Azores can be particularly frightful with narrow stone streets, drop offs, and the usual assortment of wild drivers.

Driving is on the right side of the road in Portugal, but horse-drawn carts and stray animals are everywhere so we say, pick your safest spot in the road and try to make the best of it. It's a good idea not to be in a hurry to get anywhere.

Again, please try to be careful. Seatbelts are required for everyone in the car in Portugal.
