At Faro Airport and other airports in Portugal, many of the cheaper priced deals offered by car hire companies may have a fuel policy where you have to pay for a full tank and return the vehicle with the tank empty.

The "full-empty" fuel policy generally applies to rental periods greater than 3-4 days.

CDW Insurance
