6.8 Good1 May 2019
Cons: They state up front that there is a 10 euro fee for cars returned with extremely dirty interior. I returned a car with some dirt on the driver floor mat, nothing anywhere else. That qualified as extremely dirty.
10.0 Excellent2 May 2018
Pros: We were upgraded to a larger, diesel car to save us some gas moneyCons: We were upgraded to a larger car that made me nervous on the very narrow, winding roads.

4.4 Okay18 Jun 2019
Cons: It wasn’t clear to me that the pickup/drop off are not at the airport and you have to get a minibus to take you there. Also they didn’t come to meet me at the allotted time - they came an hour later. It ended up taking two hours to hire a car - not good enough when I only hired for three days.

2.0 Mediocre20 Apr 2021
Cons: It was not possible to rent a car through them. Because they confirmed that the car booked is not possible to rent with debit card. Then they ensured that they have other cars that can be rented with debit card, but when we asked what offers they have, they did not respond. Whereas we easily rented a car through ANZ with a debit card.

Top tips for hiring a car in Ponta Delgada

  • Sao Miguel is closest to Ponta Delgada and is the biggest of the islands. With a hire car you will be able to visit many of its hotspots such as the Caldeira Velha waterfall and Furnas Hot Springs. In the Azores region there are many other islands that you can also visit. So why limit yourself to just Sao Miguel? With a hire car you can explore them all.
  • Ponta Delgada is an international airport that services the Azores Islands. Although it is not a very large airport, there are a number of car hire companies right inside the main hall of the terminal. This includes international agencies like Hertz, Enterprise, and Europcar as well as local providers.
  • The streets around Azores are in okay condition, although there are some bumpy roads. However, in comparison to driving in most cities, the traffic is light and quite relaxed. There are nonetheless many narrow roads, lots of twists and turns, and some uphill driving which can be a challenge. Because the islands are quite small, you’ll still find it easy to navigate.
  • Heavy traffic is not typical on Ponta Delgada. During your travels through its rural communities, you might run into a herd of animals, especially cows as they are being relocated to another area for grazing. You’ll need to be patient as they tend to move quite slow.
  • Book your rental car in Ponta Delgada at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car in Ponta Delgada

  • The average price of fuel in Ponta Delgada is $10.44 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between $125 and $167, depending on the car size.

  • Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Ponta Delgada?Because many of the streets are narrow, it can be difficult to pass if you are driving a large car. Consequently, a compact car is best to rent when you are driving in Ponta Delgada. A small Jeep might also be ideal due to the mountain driving. Just stay away from small cars with little power as you will need to drive up hills.

  • The speed limit around Ponta Delgada and on other islands is less than it is on the mainland. This is to make for safer driving on the narrow roads and hills here. On the freeways of the islands, you can drive at maximum speeds of 62 mph (or 100 km/h). If driving through neighborhoods, be sure to stay under 31 mph (or 50 km/h).

  • You’ll be able to fill up your car while in this part of Portugal for about $6.18 per gallon (or 1.45 euros/liter). Note that these prices are slightly higher than the cost of petrol on the mainland. Additionally, it is more costly than in the United States, the United Kingdom, or Canada.

  • Downtown tends to be the busiest area in Ponta Delgada. Many tourists visit the center of the city to shop at the market or enjoy the sights of the botanical garden. You’ll find it easy to park your hire car in its underground parking lot which is within close proximity of the waterfront. There are also a number of parking spaces on the street, although the spots can be pretty tight.
