10.0 ExcellentApr 1 2019
The staff member upon pick-up and drop-off was extremely helpful and kind. He took the time to make sure I knew all the features of the car and that I understood any differences from a typical car I might drive in the US. I was very pleased with the service I received.N/a

6.8 GoodMay 1 2019
They state up front that there is a 10 euro fee for cars returned with extremely dirty interior. I returned a car with some dirt on the driver floor mat, nothing anywhere else. That qualified as extremely dirty.
10.0 ExcellentMay 2 2018
We were upgraded to a larger, diesel car to save us some gas moneyWe were upgraded to a larger car that made me nervous on the very narrow, winding roads.

2.0 MediocreApr 20 2021
It was not possible to rent a car through them. Because they confirmed that the car booked is not possible to rent with debit card. Then they ensured that they have other cars that can be rented with debit card, but when we asked what offers they have, they did not respond. Whereas we easily rented a car through ANZ with a debit card.

4.4 OkayJun 18 2019
It wasn’t clear to me that the pickup/drop off are not at the airport and you have to get a minibus to take you there. Also they didn’t come to meet me at the allotted time - they came an hour later. It ended up taking two hours to hire a car - not good enough when I only hired for three days.

DO NOT USE AVIS FOR INTERNATIONALE TRAVEL! IN PORTUGAL I WAS REFUSED A RECEIPT. UPON ARRIVAL HOMW I BEGAN CONTACTING AVIS WHO "HAD NO RECORD OF ME HAVING RENTED A CAR"- SO I SUPPLIED ALL RELEVANT INFORMATION. A WEEK LATER I GET NOTHING BUT AUTOMATED RESPONSES. BY THE WAY, THE AVIS RENTAL CAR AGENCY IN PORTUGAL ADDED AT $2500 DEPOSIT WHICH HAS STILL NOT BEEN RETURNED AND THEY STILL OVERCHARGED MY CREDIT CARD BY $250!!!! DO NOT USE AVIS!!!

Top tips for hiring a car in Ponta Delgada

  • Sao Miguel is closest to Ponta Delgada and is the biggest of the islands. With a hire car you will be able to visit many of its hotspots such as the Caldeira Velha waterfall and Furnas Hot Springs. In the Azores region there are many other islands that you can also visit. So why limit yourself to just Sao Miguel? With a hire car you can explore them all.
  • Ponta Delgada is an international airport that services the Azores Islands. Although it is not a very large airport, there are a number of car hire companies right inside the main hall of the terminal. This includes international agencies like Hertz, Enterprise, and Europcar as well as local providers.
  • The streets around Azores are in okay condition, although there are some bumpy roads. However, in comparison to driving in most cities, the traffic is light and quite relaxed. There are nonetheless many narrow roads, lots of twists and turns, and some uphill driving which can be a challenge. Because the islands are quite small, you’ll still find it easy to navigate.
  • Heavy traffic is not typical on Ponta Delgada. During your travels through its rural communities, you might run into a herd of animals, especially cows as they are being relocated to another area for grazing. You’ll need to be patient as they tend to move quite slow.
  • Book your car hire in Ponta Delgada at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
