I need help with baby carseat hire in Portugal

I will be travelling to Portugal in December 2004 for 6 weeks and need to find a way of hiring a carseat without hiring a car. Does anyone have suggestions, know of companies or any idea of cost involved. Also previous experience with travelling on public transport with 15 month old baby in Portugal will be welcome.

If you know you will need one whilst there take one with you - check it in as luggage on the plane. In car safety does not seem to be a high priority over there, coaches do not always have seat belts and they only ask the front seat passengers to belt up.
