We were the first car rental company in Portugal investing in ozone generators. An ozone generator is installed in the parked car and after approx. 5 minutes the car is completely disinfected for bacteria, viruses and fungal spores. Ozone kills all viruses and bacteria and also has the advantage of entering all the cracks and corners of the car. BONUS: One free week (group B low season) for every 10 weeks booked and paid! 
No credit card needed at reservation - no prepayment: why run a risk in Portugals difficult business climate!
