    ANA Aeroportos de Portugal, the company responsible for the management of airports in Portugal, in the Azores and Madeira will tax from the 1st of March 2015 all car rentals made under its jurisdiction.

    The discussion about this tax between ANA and car rental companies took several months after they finally came to an end with the decision to apply this tax. This tax will start to be applied to all rentals from the 1st of March at the value of Eur 15,00 per rental.

    ANA Aeroportos de Portugal is owned by the french VINCI Airports since 2014. It tried to charge this tax since last April and was only stopped by the strong position taken by the Rental Cars Associations.

    As the result, a tax will be charged locally to all customers at pick-up at all Portuguese Airports: Faro - €15,00; Lisbon - €20,00; Porto - €20,00.
