Top tips for renting a car in Amazon Rainforest

  • During your time in Amazon Rainforest, you want a car suitable for the environment you want to drive. If you want to remain within cities like Manaus, you’re better off selecting an economy rental compact to handle narrow streets and roads in the city. However, we recommend a four-wheel drive if you plan on going too far or off-road attractions. Visit KAYAK to view your options for Amazon Rainforest car rentals and select the most fitting one depending on the destinations on your itinerary.
  • Amazon Rainforest road rules require all occupants to wear seatbelts when in the vehicle. The rules also ensure the safety of children by making car seats a mandatory requirement for children under seven years. Only children above ten years can occupy the front passenger seat. Any child under one year should be in a rear-facing child seat at the back of the vehicle, while those between one and four years should be in a front-facing child seat. A booster seat is required for children between four to seven years.
  • The cross-border policy for Amazon Rainforest car rentals depends on your provider. Different agencies have different travel restrictions. However, most only permit travel within the Brazilian territory. You cannot travel to other countries with these car rentals. A breach of this policy will lead to the termination of the rental agreement with immediate effect.
  • Amazon Rainforest is made up of several cities, towns, and villages. Some of them, like Iquitos, are inaccessible by road and can only be reached by water. Be prepared to leave your rental behind and continue the journey by boat if visiting these areas. Moreover, there are cases of wildfires in the Amazon Rainforest, so be cautious when driving around the region to ensure your safety.
  • Book your rental car in Amazon Rainforest at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Amazon Rainforest are around 55% cheaper than other car types, on average
