Lease a car to tour Madeira Island in style

Madeira airport, also informally known as Funchal Airport is an international airport based in the Island of Madeira, Portugal. It is located 13 km from Funchal city. The airport was infamous for its short runway that made landing a little tricky even to expert pilots. However, it was later extended by 200 m.

Getting from Madeira airport

So you have alighted from your plane, what next? There are several ways to get from the airport and head for your destination. You can either use a bus, a taxi or by car hire services. You can take a taxi at the front of arrivals at level 0. Taxis in Madeira run with a meter, and all baggage is paid for by piece. There is an airport bus that departs from the airport 11 times each day as from 9:45am-9.30pm.

Both buses and taxis can be inconveniencing in a couple of ways. The buses for instance, can keep you waiting especially when arrive early.  This is where you have to wait until the bus is full so that it can depart.

This leaves you with the option of car rental. Car hire will not only save you money, but time too. There are numerous cheap car hire companies that you can get in touch with and rent a car.

Clients are allowed to Park free of charge for the first 45 minutes.

Everything was alright, contact with the company and car perfect. I just see one mistake when you want to rent the car you don’t see the full price and return deposit for car. I would love to see everything and every price before I’m going rent a car that I will not be surprise too much when they say me the full price.
