It was a little tricky to find the rental car office (it was outside of the terminal in the next door mall), but otherwise all was very smooth. Having someone there who spoke English was so helpful.

Do not rent from Kayak.comNothingNothing, i lost the reservation because i was a few hours late because of connection issues, and either way the insurance that KAYAK sold me was not from alamo and i would have paid a HUGE amount of money as a guarantee when i would have need less 7 times less if the insurance was bought with them(the difference was 20$ kayak did not gave me options). So i don't know if i should blame Alamo or kayak.com but i'm never renting anything with you guys again.

MOVIDO Employees know very well about MOVIDO policies. However, they were not sure about agreement between (MOVIDO and Kayak or Qeeq). They had to ask few questions to management. After all, everything was fine.

Top tips for renting a car at Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont Airport

  • Car rental at Rio De Janeiro Santos Dumont Airport is convenient because the airport is close to the center of Rio. With a rental car, you can explore the city in a way that is difficult by bus, train, or taxi.

  • Car rental at Rio De Janeiro Santos Dumont Airport can be busy between 11 am and 6 pm. It is advisable to make a reservation through KAYAK in advance, especially if you are visiting during the high season or holiday periods such as New Year’s Eve.
