Vigo to Portugal?


Can anyone help/advise me on the best way to cross into Portugal from Vigo so that I can hire a car just over the border. I want to leave the car at Oporto airport and all Spanish car hire firms are telling me that I can't take a car from Spain and leave it in Portugal.

Does anyone know which towns are just across the border into Portugal with car hire facilities?

Muchas gracias,Annie

Unfortunately it is true. You have to return the hire car to country of origin, or pay a hefty fee for the privilege of some one else returning the car upon your behalf.

If you are looking for a Portuguese town/city with a car hire company then maybe you should post your question on the Portuguese section of this forum.

You can get a bus from Vigo to Tui here is the web link for that company. How you get across the boarder I don’t know….taxi maybe?

As an alternative you can get the bus from Vigo to Oporto it costs about €16 per person one-way. It takes about an hour by bus, so maybe the hustle of a car is just not worth it?
