Van driving tips in Portugal

Whether you’re new to driving a larger vehicle, or an experienced pro, we’ve put together a few tips to help you on your way when driving in Portugal:

  • Take a few minutes when you first get into the vehicle to familiarise yourself with the layout and controls.
  • If you’re new to driving in Portugal, remember that driving is on the right hand side of the road.
  • Speed limits are 50kph in built-up areas, 90kph on open roads and 120kph on motorways.
  • The green lanes on motorways are reserved for drivers who use the automatic payment system.
  • It’s a good idea to avoid peak times in cities when traffic will be at its busiest.
  • Plan your route in advance and make sure it doesn’t include any roads that are unsuitable for large vehicles.
  • Be aware of the height of the vehicle and check it will fit under any structures such as low bridges or car park entrances.
  • A large truck may need a bit more space for turning than you’re used to so be sure to allow for this when parking and manoeuvring.
  • Slow down, particularly in windy conditions.
  • Carrying a heavy load can affect braking and acceleration so make sure you allow for this.
  • If you run into trouble, you can dial 112 from anywhere in Europe and an operator will connect you to an emergency service in the country you're visiting.

However far you’re going, your Europcar rental van will make the journey a breeze.
