Madeira Airport Car Rental | Rent a car Madeira

Madeira Airport Car RentalPopularly known as the Pearl of the Atlantic, Madeira and Porto Santo are beautiful archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean, off the Portugal coast. Madeira is natural beauty personified and for bird-watchers, trekkers and environment enthusiasts, is pure biological paradise! Explore Madeira in all its untouched glory amidst the gorgeous surroundings and peculiar charming towns by choosing car rental which will enable you to see all the amazing sights on offer.

Funchal is also known as the ‘Garden City’ in Madeira with its blooming flowers and ornate plants on display in various gardens like the Jardins do Palheiro, the Mercado dos Lavrador and the Botanical Gardens. You also have the Se Cathedral, the Santa Clara Convent and the Sao Lorenco Palace to explore. The charming views of this tiny city coupled with the vast countryside expanse make for a pleasurable experience altogether.

On the eastern part of Madeira, the Ponta de Sao is a majestic volcanic mountain, giving you astounding and clear views of the Atlantic Ocean. You also can gain access to the Prainha’s Beach, a rocky sandy beach with volcanic ash, in the foothills. Trekking, geological trailing and bird watching are popular activities at Ponta de Sao Lourenco. Use our car hire services to get around the countryside and be amazed at the natural beauty on offer.

The beaches at Madeira offer great water sport attractions like surfing, snorkelling, rafting and deep sea diving, but surfing is an all-time popular sport thanks to the turbulent waves splashing across the shore and the frenetic pace of the ocean. Notable surfing resorts in Madeira are Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar, both of which have the perfect conditions and facilities for surfing.

If you thought Madeira was only about the obsolete monuments, cathedrals and beaches, think again. The beauty of the idyllic countryside will take you by surprise. And what could be better than exploring the Madeira Mountains only to catch a glimpse of the beautiful countryside in panoramic view! With caravanning, paragliding and cable car options, you are sure to have a fun time in the mountains.

The neighbouring Porto Santo Island offers a quiet sun and sand experience, and is around an hour away from the capital city, Funchal. Regular ferries and jetties take you to Porto Santo where strolling around the immaculate sea shore is bliss. You might opt for sea diving to the wrecks nearby too.

Madeira is a popular tourist destination and with our superb car hire services, we aim to make your holiday a fun-filled affair.

We were not very clear about the language, if the insurance was included in the price when we hired it on the internet, because the employee told us that apart from the money we thought we had to pay, insurance was not included.
