Braga Car Hire

Braga, is the capital of the lush region known as the Minho, or Costa Verde (Green Coast). The city known as the "Portuguese Rome" for its concentration of religious architecture and is the site of the Festival of St. John.  The city is located in the prosperous and developed North of Portugal, and itís a commercial and business center. But just east of Braga is one of Portugal's most memorable sites: the Shrine of Bom Jesus do Monte.  Bom Jesus can get crowded on the weekend.

Our car hire arrangements, throughout Portugal are, like the Portugese, relaxed but efficient.

Braga has the same fizz about it as Barcelona, and Milan. It's that Northern something, that when mixed with the mediterranean South, makes things happen really well. Braga car rental is no different. You'll get the efficiency, crisp sercice and delivery you would expect from any other more Northen European destination.

Driving round the North of Portugal

Condition and maintenance of rural roads varies greatly, so be alert for poorly marked construction sites, animal obstructions, animal-drawn carts and slow-moving road repair/agricultural machinery. Driving can be difficult due to drivers speeding, narrow cobblestone streets, blind curves, unprotected embankments, and herds of cows on the roads.

Night Travel

In the Northern provinces, road conditions can be especially difficult in winter. In mountainous regions of the Beiras provinces and along Portugalís border with Spain, winters are harsh which can make roads like the IP4, between Oporto and BraganÁa especially dangerous in winter. Routes through Sera da Estrela may close due to snow.

Remember, in Portugal half of all fatalities occur between Friday evening and Sunday morning. The accident rate is especially high in July and August.

               Touring the North by car ( and foot, and boat, and ...)

The Duoro Valley is the jewel of the North. One of Portugal's scenic highlights, the valley stretches across 100 miles of bold, expansive panoramas from the city of Porto all the way to the Spanish border.

In the upper reaches of the Duoro River, port-wine vineyards wrap around every crew-cut hillside, and wrap round the walls of the odd, white manor house. Roads along its banks can be crowded with day-trippers from Porto, but the Duoro now has five dams and is navigable for its length. This makes boat cruises an attractive way to soak up the atmosphere in peace.
