6.0 GoodOct 26 2021
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.
10.0 ExcellentOct 19 2021
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

5.2 OkayFeb 1 2020
The staff spoke EnglishUpon arrival we were charged nearly twice the price for an automatic transmission cat. The car we received had significant mechanical issues, the brakes failed when we were going down a mountain and the engine overheated and shut off going up a mountain road. Overall the experience was horrible and I would never book a rental car with Avis in Funchal or the online booking service we used
5.2 OkayFeb 1 2020
The rental car area was very easy to locateThe 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.
2.0 MediocreJan 1 2020
We booked and even confirmed a day prior the car was auto. When we got there they said Manuel only.
10.0 ExcellentJul 19 2019
Olinda was very helpful and professional. Her assistance with everything was very much appreciated.Reserved an automatic car but this was not correct per car rentals.com which made a huge error in my reservation. Therefore we had to get a manual car which the staff assisted us with but this mistake was inconvenient for us on our vacation.

Top tips for renting a car in Funchal

  • 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 $24 or less
  • Book your rental car in Funchal at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Funchal are around 79% more expensive than airport locations on average
