Faro Airport 7am flight home (7am) Car Rental Return ?

Hi

As it says in the title, my daughter and I are returning on a 7am flight and have bags to drop in August. Our flight DEPARTS at 7am so trying to find a car rental company that will take the return of the car at 5am or earlier is proving to be a challenge.

I'm wary as our trip to Lagos as a family a number of years ago resulted in us nearly missing a flight home with a fussy toddler because there was no shuttle bus back to the airport terminal from the rental office (can't remember the company) and we don't want to get caught out again.

All advice welcome! Thanks in advance!

(I know there is an out of hours add-on cost for collection, however, our arriving flight is midday so we're fine. It's our return flight that's at 7am!

Thanks in advance to all expert / experienced opinions!

A

No company will do that so far as I know but if you book a car through one of the local companies, instead of a multi-national big-name, they are very flexible and you simply leave your car in the airport car park 4 with the keys under the sun visor. Have always used Luzcar.com and they’re brilliant.

As previously mentioned. Try a local company.

Zitautos’s is the one I always use. You leave the car in car park 1

Highly recommend drive4fun.

Just leave the keys under the visor in the car.

Never had a problem.

Thanks to you all...I've just booked with Zituato!

You guys are brilliant! Great so far and happy to deal with them. I'd planned on getting my own insurance through AIG anyway...super job guys and thanks for the quick response ...was flat out at work so didn't get back to check responses until just now and I'm just after booking the car and insurance so that's all SORTED!

WHEW....now to count down the days! 66 days and COUNTING DOWN!
