KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Horta

  • If you plan to visit Horta, consider doing yourself a favor by renting a car when you get there. The city has numerous areas of attraction located far apart, including Horta Old Town, Faial Island, Marina da Horta, and Port of Horta. You can conveniently access these places via car rentals in Horta. Although the city has excellent public transport services, catching the bus at the terminals every time is daunting and worth avoiding. Besides, public transport cannot access certain places, especially off-road destinations, forcing you to connect with taxis. Additionally, Horta car rentals offer affordability, convenience, and flexibility when it comes to your mobility needs.
  • Suppose you are flying into Horta. In that case, you will land at Horta Airport (HOR), 4.9 miles from the city center. Take advantage of the many car rental agencies at the airport and pick up your Horta car rentals. The popular car rental companies to expect at HOR include IIha Verde, 2Rent, Autatlaritis, Europcar, Rhodium, Hertz, Avis, SIXT, Keddy, Wayzor, and Sunnycars. The rental desks are at the airport baggage claim and ground transportation areas.
  • Driving in Horta is generally safe, with well-established roads and proper markings. But there are a few obstacles that may impact your driving experience. Be mindful of jaywalkers because pedestrians disregarding crosswalks is still a concern in the city. Also, bikers are permitted to use the same lanes as motorists. They often disobey traffic laws and may cross and enter lanes without communicating. Approach and overtake them cautiously. Besides, certain roads can get snowy during winter. Drive carefully on these road surfaces.
  • Like other Portuguese cities, Horta experiences considerable dense traffic during rush hours. The good news is that you can easily escape traffic delays by planning your route well. Typically, weekday morning rush hours start from 8 am to 10 am, and the evening rush hours begin from 5 pm to 7 pm. The areas worth avoiding if you must drive your Horta car rentals during these hours are the populated business zones and commuter areas.

They do not have a counter at the airport as advertised and the representative showed up 1 1/2 hours after he was supposed to be there. Rental cars.com, who it went through, has no way to contact them, nor did 2Cars, so you just have to sit as and pray someone shows up. Terrible experience.
