Top tips for renting a car at Sao Paulo Congonhas airport

  • Are you traveling to Sao Paulo by air? Unless you have someone to pick you up and take you around, your best bet is to book a car rental at Sao Paulo Congonhas Airport or CGH. Avoid the headache of carrying around your luggage while waiting for a taxi, bus, or metro train. Buses serving Sao Paulo International Airport can be unreliable as they are prone to breakdowns, unless you find one that offers quick replacement. On the other hand, the metro and subway require you to buy tickets on-site, and the lines are usually long and inconvenient. Renting a car gives you more flexibility since you can choose what landmarks to stop by, and your belongings remain safe at all times. Beware that public transportation is not available at night and in the morning hours on weekends. Thus, a car rental is the most reliable means of transfer from CGH Airport.
  • The infamous traffic around Sao Paulo International Airport gets worse every weekday from 6.30 am – 9.30 am and later around 4.30 pm – 7.30 pm. Bad weather, holidays, and major events create more congestion along the highways, making the evening rush hour last until 10.00 pm. Pick up and return your rented car before or after these busy times to make your travel plans less frustrating.
  • Be aware of drop-off times and locations. Some rental companies will charge you for an extra day if you use the vehicle for more than 24h. So, if you take the car at noon, make sure you’ve returned it before noon the following day to save on rental costs. Most of the return areas are within walking distance of the GCH terminal on Avenida Washington Luiz. Unless you’ve booked a one-way trip with Sao Paulo Congonhas Airport car rental, taking back the vehicle to its original pick-up point keeps you from paying a drop-off fee.
  • When driving in Sao Paulo, make sure you are on the correct side of traffic. Since you are most likely to rent a left-hand drive car, always stay on the right-hand side of the road. Move to the left only if you need to overtake. It is recommended to have insurance to cover potential damages during the rental period. Scrutinize the policy to know if you might be liable for any damage, including theft.

Pros:

Service rendered by ths staff OK however I had a recent experience with no extra fee for dropping-off in a different store than pick-up and HERTZ does charge you for dropping off in a different address in the same city. I think this could be reviewed

Cons:

see above. + a little more cheap fees, though I understand the high season.

DO NOT CHOOSE FOCO RENTAL!!!! Extremely poor customer service Extremely poor management Car with mechanical issue!! No easy access to pick up/drop off the car Did not used the car for the whole period due to mechanical issue and did not get my money back I had to wait hours for the toll truck to pick up the car. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!

Total price ended up being FIVE TIMES what was originally quoted and I still haven’t seen my deposit returned. They charged multiple additional hidden fees, pick-up was a chaotic nightmare, I couldn’t get ahold of anyone at the return location after calling for hours, and that return location tried to charge me a bunch of money for random other things, thinking I didn’t speak Portuguese and they could get away with it.
