Do not get bullied into over the counter additional insurance. Do take pictures of the car scratches, etc before signing. You may need this evidence if they accuse you of damage later which was already on the car

We were staying in Amendoeria Golf Resort which is near Silves which is well worth a visit. Slightly inland, lovely sights and restaurants and not expensive. Also near Lagos also well worth exploring.

When in Algarve, rent a car at HolidayCars - because they have best prices - for a week and drive through the whole coast from the Southiest point St.Vincent with huge cliffs at the sea, then Lagos; walk along the strand promenade, come to the old harbour in Portimão and try some fantastic fish restaurants, stay overnight in Albufeira at "Falesia Hotel - Adults Only" and visit their Casino. Then visit the "Disneyland of Algarve" VILA MOURA, maybe playing golf there. Have a lunch in Alvor in some of the riverfront restaurants. Finally, visit the great Camping of Olhão, where you meet lots of people from the whole Europe and learn about camping as lifestyle by talking with some veterans there. Finally, leave your car back at HolidayCars and let their shuttle bus take you back at the Airport of Faro, free of charge.

The city of Faro was not my destination, but having visited the old town once, you always want to return. It is beautiful even though a little challenging when driving there for the first time.
