Ponta Delgada - Car models and reference cost of rent

Decide what car you want to drive in the city of Ponta Delgada to find out daily average cost.

In addition, the price depends on the point where you are planning to pick up the car. Pay attention to this to make the trip more advantageous.

Speed limits in Portugal

All the rumours that travelling across Ponta Delgada by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:

Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.

Age. Restrictions and extra charges

Please note that drivers under 25 and over 70 are often less trusted at the provider's office and are subject to an extra payment when renting. The policies of your car rental company may be found on our website in the Age Restrictions section.

Payment method

Pay for your booking using MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, or an American Express card.
BE CAREFUL. When you receive a car, you may need a credit card, and you will not be able to use a debit card. You can find further information about details in advance in the Payment Methods section.

Deposit and credit card information

If a provider does indicate the need to provide a credit card when booking, and you do not have it, check the status of your debit card on www.bindb.com. The fact is that some debit cards are actually credit cards with zero limit. If your card is one of them, you may use it.

Be careful on the road. Fines in Portugal are quite high.

In Ponta Delgada, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:


It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.

What documents will be required for car receipt?

Driver's license
Credit card
Voucher
PLEASE NOTE

According to the rules of most rental companies of Ponta Delgada, the provision of an international driving licence is required.

I booked a car for my family trip in Check Republik via this company. They provide a good service for searching and comparing car rental prices. My experience of renting from them added some more good impressions from my trip.

I can't imagine a journey without a car. It's awful to drive by bus. I often use car rental services and arrange everything via this resource. Quite often I get excellent price offers when renting executive cars. I like direct payment without any redirections and lots of offers. Support service works promptly and efficiently at any time of the day, which is also a definite advantage.
