To move around the islands, the best solution is undoubtedly to rent a car, while motorcycles and scooters are less suitable due to the variable and often rainy weather.

In the small airports of the Azores you will find some of the best known international car rental companies, such as Avis, Hertz or Europcar, flanked by a couple of local agencies, the most common of which are Ilha Verde, Azores Autos and Auto Turistica Faialense.

Ilha Verde in particular is the most present company on all the islands and often operates in partnership with the international brands mentioned above. Therefore, it could happen that even though you have booked, for example, with Avis, the service will in fact be offered by Ilha Verde.

Keep in mind, however, that the car park is not large, the available cars are therefore few and especially during high season is essential to book well in advance your car, not to find yourself stranded as happens every year to many travelers incredulous that there is not even a free car.

Travel information

Why rent a car in the Azores

The car, as we said, is the best way to visit the Azores, only in this way you can reach the many miradouro, discover the equipped coves where you can take a dip in the ocean, drive along beautiful roads lined with hydrangeas and move between places of interest in complete autonomy.

In fact, the Azores have to reckon with public transport which is not very widespread and infrequent, making it impossible for tourists to visit.

In the Azores, then, the changeable weather will affect your days a lot, making you change your plans often. With a car it will therefore be much easier to move from one area to another according to the weather.

Due to the lack of restaurants, in the evening you will often have to take the car to go to dinner.

Driving in the Azores

The inhabitants of the Azores are very diligent drivers, but in any case the traffic will be the least of your problems, given the small number of cars in circulation. You will encounter a few more cars in Ponta Delgada, but otherwise you will often find yourself driving the roads alone.

Driving around the streets of the Azores is really a pleasure and an experience in itself, you will feel like you are constantly in one big garden. On the islands, the roads are often winding, the only fast roads are in fact in Sao Miguel, but we recommend, when possible, to drive along the beautiful secondary roads that offer incredible views at every turn.

Finally, a colorful note about parking: in the Azores the inhabitants often park in a “creative” way, if we can say so, often leaving the car literally in the middle of the road. But in areas where everyone drives slowly and calmly, it is never a problem.

Frequently asked questions about car rental in Azores

Here are some quick answers to the most common doubts about car rental in Azores.
