RENTED THE CAR IN SUMMER 13: - It was a old car from 2009(Feb) - The car had more than 80000KM - The tyres were bald. I have pictures and the company provider at the end agreed they should have changed - The gearbox was hard, not smooth and needed a service or change -The windscreen wipers were not cleaning anything. In fact if it had rain I could not drive that car - The car was not clean properly. It was well dirty inside and outside. They proposed to take the car for cleaning which... (read more)

I rent a car via Amoita during my summer holidays in Portugal and i have really appreciated their level of service. Indeed the car that I have rent broke down during my stay in Algarve. Even though it was on Saturday late in the a-noon (around 7.00 pm) it was easy to reach Amoita by phone. After 45' they sent me a taxi for going back home and the day after they delivered me a brand new car. So feel confident with this company who also practice very competitive prices. (read more)

Our experience with Amoita is that they are always on time, flexible, friendly and quick in the document handling. Quality shows in times of trouble and we have experienced that if a car has an 'issue' in the opinion of a customer, There is never a discussion. The car gets changed quick and without any trouble. Service is the most important feature when you sre on holiday. All in all, we'll not book with any other car company anymore! (read more)

I've used Amoita for years and they've been consistently good. My first rental was based on a recommendation and I couldn't be bothered to do a comparison; their service was good so I used them again. Then a while back I thought I ought to check rates and was delighted to find that they are up there with the best on competitive rates. I've found their service first class - on the few occasions I've had a problem with a car they've immediately driven a replacement to my villa. I've used... (read more)

This was our second time renting a car from Amoita Car Rental at Lisbon Airport and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent. From the time we booked with Rui Santos (Sales Manager) to car pickup with Antonio, the rental process was professional, fast and efficient. At Lisbon Airport, we were met by Antonio who was waiting for us in Arrivals. He completed the paper work in 10 minutes and took us to the car port gave us the keys and even paid for the parking ticket to exit. ... (read more)

Hired through Amiota. After reading reviews and was not disappointed. As we passed through arrivals a Lisbon airport there were 2 Amiota reps holing up boards with our and our daughter and son in law's names. Within 5 minutes. We were on our way - all paperwork completed on line before leaving home and cars parked directly outside arrivals hall. Cars in good condition and clean though about 4 years old. No problems during our stay and an Amiota rep waiting for us right outside departures... (read more)

I don't know about you but I hate hiring cars on holiday. Having reviewed numerous slightly cheaper options (and a few much more expensive 'big names')we opted for Amoita based upon a friends recommendation and mid range prices. The online registration was easy and encouraged me that I wouldn't have tons of paperwork to do at the airport which would waste valuable holiday time. This proved to be mostlly true although my additional drivers details needed to be duplicated manually but this... (read more)

I have been renting with Moita for 3 or 4 years and have found both their service and their prices to be a cut above the rest. Cars are clean and well-kept, staff is polite and organized, and they will even drop off or pick up your car from an agreed location (for me, it's my mother's house in the Algarve) so that there's no extra hassle at the airport. The first year I rented from them, someone drove into me (he was arrested for drunk driving), and all I could think about was how I would be... (read more)

I chose Amoita for a longer-term car rental and remained with them throughout my time time in Portugal. The rental rates were very reasonable, the cars reliable and fuel-efficient, and the representatives courteous and helpful. I will certainly contact Amoita when I next need to rent a car in Portugal and would certainly recommend this company. (read more)

We recently used Amoita following Trip Advisor reviews for 5 days car rental in the Algarve. The instructions to meet the Amoita rep at the cafe were spot on and he was waiting with a laptop showing the Amoita logo for us to recognise him. In his faultless English, the rep was extremely efficient with the paperwork already completed prior to our arrival. Only had to produce the credit card used in the booking and that was it, no attempt to upsell options which was a pleasant change.... (read more)

I'd read some bad things about car rental companies in Portugal but I read on Trip Advisor that Amoita was a good company and so needing a car for two weeks of driving around Portugal and Spain, I decided to go with Amoita. Amoita does not have a booth at the airport in Lisbon, and not having read the contract carefully, I went to the area where the other car hire booths were and no one had even heard of Amoita. But eventually I read the contact, saw that I was supposed to meet an agent and... (read more)

we hired a peugeot 107 from this company via economy cars. The vehicle was delivered to our aparthotel in albufeira portugal by these people. they were polite, on time, clearly explained the terms and conditions and agreed a mutually agreeable return time and date. the car was in good condition although it had done 52000 kms. i would be more than happy to use these people again and am happy to recommend them to anyone who may be interested.

This summer we were lucky enough to find a car with a company we didn't hear about AMOITA.RENT a CAR.
It was the best surprise ever, despite the fact they didn't have an office at Faro airport, the rep. was easy to find with the map they provide us by e-mail, he was very friendly and could speak perfectly English and some other languages.
Then a thought "it's too good to be true ", let's have a look at the car!!
The car provided was a brand new Seat Ibiza, (requested group) and I nearly... (read more)

I have been using Amoita for about 8 years and during this time they have always given excellent service, have never let me down and have always been waiting at Faro even when flights were seriously delayed. Their staff are very professional and responsive to any minor problems or queries. they have a good fleet and are aware of individual likes and dislikes and try within the constraints of normal business to get the vehicle that you want. Overall a very good firm and I have no hesitation... (read more)

Over the 20 years of owning and renting my villa in the Algarve, there was only one car rental that you could RELY on, Amoita.
The requests for car hire would come through late or alter at the last minute , would require additional items within and at no time was I let down (nor were the clients) and that made for the perfect start to a holiday .
Another advantage of Amoita is that they are the most organised at the airport, which is such an advantage. You can wait forages to check your car... (read more)

Having been let down by another company and searched for hours on the internet, I called this company from the UK just 3 days before out arrival. The guy said if he had a car he would call me back that day and I didn't hold out much hope. However he called me back later and said he had located a car. The admin. and service was excellent, and the rep met us at the airport. The car had some dinks and scratches but was in reasonable order inside. They seem to be a company with integrity, and I...
