I tried twice to change my pickup and drop off time on your system, but was unable to change it beyond the default 12:00. This might be an IT problem because I booked this on my mobile phone.

Car was as advertised. Very clean and free of debris or concerns. Access tot he vehicle at both pick up and drop off was simple and clear. Check in was the only hurdle with inefficiencies in preparation and service.

Just listen to the representative when they tell you to get an automatic when renting on Madeira. I have driven a manual all my life and have when in other European countries. This island driving is like no other. It was 7 euros more a day. But worth it. Marc

Feb 2020

Pros:

The rental car area was very easy to locate

Cons:

The prices listed for rental car’s were incorrect, upon arrival we were charged significantly more for a car for an automatic transmission even though we had selected one in our online reservation. The car we were given also had significant mechanical issues. Overall the experience was not just inconvenient it was dangerous! I would never consider booking another rental car this way.

My flight was delayed, was 3 hours late for pick up. They told me it was too late and I could still have the car, but I would have to pay an additional $200 which is half again of the total pre paid. Told them forget it. Immediately call my credit card and stopped payment. Terrible experience and a scam. Stay away from Surprice.

Top tips for renting a car in Funchal

  • There is so much to see and do in Funchal, the largest city, and the vibrant capital of Madeira. With cheap car rentals in Funchal, your business or vacation trip is bound to make your stay in this cultural city seamless. Book your Funchal car rentals through KAYAK and explore the region’s historic monuments, parks, and gardens. Start your tour at the Jardim Botanico (Botanical Garden) located approximately 4km northeast of Funchal city center. From here, take to the Levada Walks. Hiking across these narrow man-made irrigation channels is, without a doubt, one of the most popular activities on this island. If you are the indoor type, head on to the Convento de Santa Clara. Founded in 1476, come over and discover the elegant cloisters and its Moorish-style copular with its amazing decorations.
  • There is no shortage of cheap car rentals in Funchal. Some of the car rental companies you will find in Funchal include Budget, Avis, Insularcar, Free2move, Sunnycars, and Rodavante. Most of these car rental companies are located at Funchal Madeira Airport (FNC). With no direct bus from the airport to the city center, which is approximately 12 miles, your cheap Funchal car rentals are bound to come in handy. With your rented car, you can reach the town center from the airport in under 25min, a journey that would otherwise take you 40min or more.
  • Thanks to the dual carriage motorway and several tunnels that cut through huge mountains, driving in Madeira is a lot easier than it once was. Do keep in mind that driving in Madeira is on the right-hand side of the road. All car occupants are required to always wear seat belts. If you are traveling with kids under 12, do not allow them to occupy front seats. The speed limit within the city center is 25mph (40km/h), whereas the speed limit on the highways is 55mph (90km/h).
  • A rental car is by far the best option to explore not only Funchal, but the whole of the Madeira island, as you will have the freedom to go anywhere you want and make as many scenic stops along the way as you please. Driving along the stunning roads will offer you astonishing views; just try heading to the sandy beaches of Calheta, just 40 minutes away, or to the closer Laurisilva Forest, which is around 10 miles away from Funchal.
  • All the major car rental companies, including Avis, Budget, and Europcar, can be found at Madeira International Airport Cristiano Ronaldo CR7 (FNC), commonly known as Madeira Airport, which is located approximately 8.2 miles from Funchal. You can walk straight to the car rental parking lot, which is just across from the terminal. The closest gas station to Madeira Airport is just five minutes away.
  • Due to recent road work, Madeira now has a great network of both inland and coastal roads that have replaced the older, much more dangerous ones. However, there are still plenty of uphill roads with sharp bends that are also quite windy, so be extra careful when driving in new territory. Some roads are also quite narrow and are not advised for people with vertigo issues, so make sure to drive slowly and carefully.
  • The island of Madeira does not experience traffic jams, and even during rush hour you won’t find congestion bad enough to add too much extra time to your travels. There is, however, a bigger influx of cars on the road, especially between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., and then again after 5 p.m. If you’re heading to the airport during those hours, just plan to leave a bit early.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Funchal for $30 or less
  • Book your rental car in Funchal at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Funchal are around 21% more expensive than airport locations on average
