Location information for Coimbra


In the Middle Ages, Coimbra was Portugal's capital. It's mainly famous for its university which opened its doors in 1290 making it one of the oldest in Europe. There are also relics from the Roman times, including a well preserved aqueduct and cryptoporticus.


The city has approximately 140,000 inhabitants.


The historical Coimbra is located in central Portugal, along the Mondego River. The river discharges 40 kilometers west into the Atlantic Ocean. Here you'll also find the seaside resort Figueira da Foz. Coimbra is a beautiful city, but there are also picturesque towns and villages in the surroundings, like Lousã and Penacova.


Coimbra is a center for education and healthcare. No less than 35,000 students receive higher education (20,000 at the university) and there are two public and numerous private hospitals. There are also software companies and other high-tech companies.


Coimbra is situated along Portugal's main highway, the A1, connecting the capital Lisbon with Porto. The airports of both cities are easily reachable by rental car. Porto's airport, Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport, is situated 118 kilometers northwest of Coimbra; Lisbon's airport, Portela Airport, 170 kilometers south of the city.

Public Transport

The city has excellent public bus transport, exploited by Serviços Municipalizados de Transportes Urbanos de Coimbra (SMTUC). There are regular buses and trolley buses (Coimbra is the only Portuguese city with this type of bus transportation). There are regional bus connections with surrounding places, but also with Porto and Lisbon.

Traffic and Parking

Driving around Coimbra is easy, but finding a free parking place in the city center is difficult. Especially near the university practically all places are taken on working days. Fortunately there are many (often underground) parking garages in and around the center where you can safely park your rental car. On the other side of the river (in Santa Clara) there are some free parking lots.


Being a city for young people and students, Coimbra has no shortage of cheap accommodations, especially in the city center. There are, however, also luxury hotels, including some so-called pousadas (hotels housed in historical buildings).

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
