In the year we celebrate our 14th birthday on the first website, we proudly present another step to make it easier for our customers to book rental cars at Faro airport or anywhere else in the Algarve.

This is seen by us as this is a normal evolution in order to follow the evolution of technology that we always try to have at our customers' disposal to facilitate the process of booking car rental online in the Algarve. Since 2007 this is the third major evolution in our online car rental system in the Algarve, hence we call it YouDrive 3.0


From the initial html booking system, we quickly evolved into a proprietary php booking system at, which facilitated both customer reservations and backoffice management. With the rapid evolution of information systems linked to the internet and the dissemination of smartphones forced us to take an intermediate step with the development of a mobile exclusive car hire reservation system.

Now it is time to reformulate all the reservation software, both frontoffice and backoffice, highly parameterizable and with a level of customer interaction never before achieved. A responsive car rental reservation system that caters to all customers, with all kinds of peripherals, from computers to smartphones to tablets, always using the same environment and platform.

The new platform, which facilitates online booking, is born and aims to continue serving customers who since 2007 have always expressed their pleasure for our online support service as well as our service on the ground.

At You Drive Car Hire we intend to continue to provide excellent service as a local company in the Algarve based at Faro Airport and deserve the trust of the thousands of customers who use our service every year.

We continue to offer our customers excellent services and well-cared rental cars that are delivered to the airport in Faro or in hotels, villas or resorts where our customers are accommodated.

We started You Drive in 2007 in the Algarve. Based on a some years of knowledge in the Rent a Car business, we started implementing a set of procedures with the aim of making the rental car business in the Algarve more flexible, more reliable, more personalized and more adapted to the new technologies emerging. We implemented the first WAP rental car reservation system in the Algarve to work on mobile phones with web access or on PDA's, the predecessors of smartphones. For the first time in the car rental business in Algarve the clients have the possibility of making their car hire reservation for Faro airport or anywhere in Algarve with a device they can carry in their pocket. We listen to and understand our customers, adapt our rental car fleet to needs and develop the system for delivering rental cars to customer's hotels and other holiday accommodation, in addition to direct deliveries at Faro airport. We are proud to have thousands of satisfied customers at our side that trust and like our Algarve car rental service and return every year and book their rental car for holidays in Algarve with You Drive.
