Car Rental

Through us, you will get a car group B for the price of a car group A, e.g. a Renault Clio with air bag and radio. This is a considerable advantage, as the roads in Madeira can be quite steep and with a normal car group A you can experience difficulties driving on some of the roads, particularly with luggage.

Upgrade of category

An upgrade of the car category or cancellation of the rental car is possible free of charge up to 48 hours after booking the journey with us. After this time there is a cancellation fee of € 25. If you cancel less than 48 hours before receiving the car, you will have to pay a cancellation fee of € 50. It is not possible to cancel the car after you have received it; in that case, the full amount is payable. Changes or upgrades should be arranged through us rather than through the local rental car company.

We can offer you the following alternatives:

Group B (normally group C):

Chevrolet kalos 1.2 with air conditioning or similar € 40 extra p. week
Renault Clio 1.2 with air conditioning or similar € 40 extra p. week
Car Rental - Group B  

Note: air conditioning is only really necessary in Madeira in the months of July and August, when the temperature can reach 38 degrees Celsius. During the rest of the year, the temperature varies between a pleasant 20-30 degrees.

Group C (normally group D):

New model Renault Clio € 80 extra p.w. low season
01/01/2010 – 30/06/2010
Car Rental - Group C € 100 extra p.w. high season
01/07/2010 – 15/09/2010

Own risk / deposit

For cars of groups A, B, and C there is a security deposit of € 175 to be paid. On reception of the car, your credit card will be charged over this amount. The credit card should be in the name of the driver. On prior request, it is also possible to leave the deposit in cash. In case of any damage to the car for which you yourself are to blame, the deposit will not be returned.
Driving under the effect of alcohol or narcotics constitutes an infraction with regards to the insurance police according to European and Portuguese law; in case of an accident caused under such circumstances, all the damage is the driver's personal responsibility and will not be covered by the insurance.


The petrol you use during the lease period is not included in the price. However, Madeira is a small island and our rental cars do not use much petrol.
You should deliver the car with the same level of petrol as you receive it. The level of petrol will be checked (as will the general condition of the car) on receiving and returning the car.

Minimum age

The minimum age for being allowed to drive with the rent-a-car company we work with is 21 years, with a minimum of two years of driving experience.

Additional driver

For a second driver, there is an additional fee of € 10 to be paid.

Lease period

The lease period is 24 hours, unless otherwise agreed. For a week this means the lease period is 7 consecutive days of 24 hours. Should you deliver the car after the time agreed upon on receiving the car, you will have to pay for one extra day.


Baby Seat € 6 per day
Child Seat € 4 per day
Delivery to Funchal airport after 8 pm € 15
GPS € 25 for rental period


The fee for the entire journey, including rental car, is payable to us. In case you have booked the journey without car and change your mind before you leave, you can pay the additional amount by credit card or by giving us one-off permission to withdraw the amount from your account.
