KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in João Pessoa

  • Joao Pessoa is known for its fantastic beaches and numerous natural attractions. If you intend to explore this city, avoid the slow local buses with fixed schedules and consider using car hire in Joao Pessoa. Because hire cars give you freedom and flexibility, you can go to unique places far from the city, like Ponte de Leitao, about 54 km (34 miles) from Joao Pessoa.
  • You can book a hire car if you land at Rucife/Guararapes-Gilberto Freyre International Airport (REC) when going to Joao Pessoa. Several car hire companies at the airport, including Locazila, Enterprise, and Alamo. These car hire offices are located on the ground floor. You can access the car hire offices using free shuttles at the airport. Also, most car hire companies recommend customers book a car in advance.
  • When driving Pessoa car hire, you can experience challenges because the streets can sometimes be crowded as people go to the beaches. Therefore, focus on the road to ensure pedestrian safety. Again, though the highway is well-marked, some streets in the city have poor signalling and paving. So, it can be challenging, especially when driving at night, on unfamiliar roads.
  • Traffic rush hours in the city are mostly between 6:30 to 09:00 and 15:30 to 20:00 on weekdays. Traffic is caused by large buses, trucks, commuters, and residents going for dinner. The most affected road is the Trans-Amazonian Highway. Avoid driving on this road during rush hours when using car hire in Joao Pessoa. If you have to drive on this highway, consider beginning your journey earlier to avoid inconveniences.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Joao Pessoa?

    Joao Pessoa streets are busy, and most roads are wide. Therefore, you can use a small standard car or a larger SUV. However, using a larger car is recommended because of poor paving on some roads. This is because SUVs are easier to drive on uneven roads and different weather conditions because of their traction. However, your car hire agency can help you choose the best vehicle, depending on the condition of the road to many tourist destinations. Other things to consider choosing a car are fuel consumption and safety features.

  • What’s the speed limit in Joao Pessoa?

    Maintaining the required speed limits when using car hire in Joao Pessoa helps to improve road safety. The speed limit in residential areas, playgrounds, and school zones is 30 km/h (18 mph). If driving on main avenues, the maximum speed is 60 km/h (31 mph). When driving on main highways, the speed limit is between 80 km/h (50 mph) and 110 km/h (60 mph). You can pay hefty fines if charged with speeding. Therefore, maintain the speed depending on speed limit signs in different zones of the city. In addition, there are traffic cameras that help to monitor driver behaviour and protect other drivers and pedestrians.

  • Where are the best places to park in Joao Pessoa?

    When parking a hire car, consider car parks in the city centre because they are near restaurants and streets. However, consider the rates, security, and permit before parking to avoid frustrations. Several car parks charge different rates for 2h parking. Pare Bem Estacionamentos Ltda charges about R$40 (£6.39), Rua Riachuelo charges around R$30 (£4.78), Garagem Embaixador charges about R$10 (£1.59), Rua Doutor Flores, 391 charges around R$18 (£2.85), and Estacionamento Piovezani charges approximately R$24 (£3.38). Several hotels offer overnight parking if you need a secure place for night parking. You can also find several car parks outside the city. If you park outside the city centre, you can get into the city using public buses.
