Top tips for renting a car in Recife

  • Drive through Recife on Linha Verde and you’ll experience great photo opportunities. The city of Recife also provides access to numerous islands in Brazil, including Itamaraca and Recife Antigo. With a rental car you can visit several beaches along with some of the quaint towns in the region. This includes the community of Olinda with its delightful architecture, art galleries, and museums.
  • Recife International Airport is a very modern airport with mostly domestic but some international flights. It offers many conveniences and amenities including car rental services. Rent a vehicle on your next trip to the region from one of the agencies with offices at the airport, located on the ground floor. This includes National, Hertz, and Avis.
  • Be sure to secure an International Driver’s Permit before leaving home if you plan to rent a car. Driving in Recife you’ll want to note a few unique rules. First, be sure to keep your flip-flops in your beach bag while driving as it is illegal to drive while wearing them. If driving in rural areas, be prepared to drive on unpaved roads, which can be somewhat of a challenge.
  • Recife is a busy city with lots of traffic all day and night. However, driving during rush hour can add lots of time to your travel. Consequently you’ll want to avoid driving between the hours of 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Traffic is congested mostly on the highways and the streets leading into downtown.
  • Book your rental car in Recife at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Recife are around 62% cheaper than other car types, on average
