car rental drop off in portugal

Hi

was wondering if somebody could assist. We are going to Lisbon and our end destination will be Barcelona to meet up with a cruise. We are a family of 5 so would like to drive via Seville and a few other places. I believe that drop off fees are huge between countries. could anybody recommend a town that is close to the Spanish border heading to Seville that we could drop of the car and then hire a car again on the Spanish side. Is this possible. thanks in advance.

Depends on the route that you'll take to reach Sevilla the main points for crossing the border will be at Elvas/Badajoz or Vila Real Stº António/Ayamonte. If you just want to reach a border and get a car, if you don't want to visit/spend time anywhere in Portugal go to Elvas (Portugal) take a taxi to Badajoz (Spain), these are bigger towns so it will probably be easier to get a car.

An alternative could be to drive to Faro, where all the car rental agencies are represented either at the airport or in the city. From there you can take a bus to Seville for about 20 Euros (adult fare) each.

Bus times www.rede-expressos.pt and www.alsa.es - two different companies go between the two places.
