The Algarve's main motorway, the A22, and all motorways in Portugal, operates an unmanned toll system. All our cars are equipped with a toll transponder device. Upon collection of your rental car you'll be asked for a 20 euro cash credit (30 euro for mini buses) for the transponder. This includes 15 EUR (25 euro for mini buses) worth of pre-loaded credit to use in the motorways. An option to add more credit (by a minimum of 10 euro and multiples hereof) to the transponder is available upon collection or during the rental.
Unfortunately, remaining unused toll credit is non refundable. If you know in advance that you'll not use the A22 the 20 euro cash deposit, will be replaced by a credit card slip which will be kept for 5 days after the return of the car then destroyed.
