SIPP codes (Standard Interline Passenger Procedure) are a standard in the Car Rental industry so customers can easily compare different models of vehicles.

To have a visual idea, the booked category comes with an example of a brand/model, but it's not guaranteed the same model is going to be provided upon delivery. What we guarantee is to provide a similar type of vehicle. Once the example images may be misleading due to zoom and angle, and there are thousands of models worldwide without correspondence in different Countries, there's the need to uniform procedures so customers know exactly what they're booking.

Consult the following list to build a 4 letters code that suits your rental needs, vehicle size, number of doors, gearbox transmission and drive, fuel type and air conditioning.

By Beirra Serra, Group Amoita.

The introduction of electronic tolls (no pay booths) on the A22 Algarve Motorway, and other similar motorways in the north of Portugal has caused chaos, especially with visitors. Most people tell us they don't mind the tolls, but object to the method of payment, especially for foreign registered cars. The problem is quite simply that these roads were not built as toll roads, so they have no space to build toll booths and as a result, the system has to be fully automatic.

So far we did not have the transporter, our clientes have the responsability to pay the tolls at the Post Office or Pay Shop, which must be done within five days, but only after 48 hours have transpired. You only need to supply the registration plate of your rental car.

If you did not pay, official answer is "wait until we write to you at your address back home", the reality is that we don't know anyone (yet) who has received such a letter.

It is also possible to check the amount to pay on the CTT website at this link:

You just write the registration number of the car you rent on the field and insert the captch letters.

Thank's for your choice...Algarve car rental? Off couse Amoita...
