KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Ilhéus

  • If you want to make the most of your holiday, booking car hire in Ilhéus is the way to go. You won't have to deal with bus or train stops, and you won't have to plan your activities around public transport schedules and routes. Ilhéus is a great starting point from which to explore the coastal region of Bahia in Brazil. You can take day trips to resorts like Itacaré, popular for its beaches. Or visit the Eco Village and Retreat Centre in nearby Piracanga.
  • Your flight will land at Jorge Amado Airport (IOS), and if you book car hire in Ilhéus here, it's only about a 3-minute drive to the centre of the city. It's a small airport that hosts a few major international hire car companies, plus some local ones. You'll find them on the small feeder roads outside the terminal building. Just walk through the exit and scan around in front of you for the signage of your chosen company.
  • There are only a few things to note when you organise car hire in Ilhéus. It's one of the largest cities in the Bahia region, so traffic can be quite hectic. Add many pedestrians and locals commuting on bicycles, and you have a situation where you need to drive cautiously all the time. The driving style is laid-back, but always be watchful for drivers ignoring the rules of the road.
  • One of the difficulties of driving in Ilhéus is that the road surfaces can be quite uneven. It's recommended that you don't hire a car with low ground clearance for this reason. Watch out for potholes too, and drive slowly and carefully when you turn into driveways, which often have steep entrances that can scrape your bumpers. You may also be surprised at how busy the traffic is all the time, due to the combination of the city's size and the tourist numbers.
  • Book your rental car in Ilhéus at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Ilhéus are around 39% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Ilhéus?

    Due to the sometimes rough and unpredictable road surfaces, it's best to go for a vehicle with more ground clearance when choosing your Ilhéus car hire model. Get something like a small SUV or a cross hatchback if you're alone or with one other person, and a proper SUV if you're with a group of friends or your family. As tempting as it might be, don't hire a luxury sedan or a sports car, as you won't get the chance to derive much satisfaction from them on these roads. One last thing to bear in mind, is that you'll drive on the unfamiliar right-hand side of the road.

  • What's the speed limit in Ilhéus?

    The speed limit in the built-up areas of Ilhéus is 50 km/h (about 31 mph). Further out than that, you can drive at up to 80 km/h (about 50 mph) on streets that are larger and don't have much pedestrian or bicycle traffic. Once on the highway, you can travel at either 110 km/h (about 68 mph) or 120 km/h (about 75 mph). Keep a look-out for the signs. This may be a holiday city, but there are plenty of speed cameras around, so don't take any chances.

  • Where are the best places to park in Ilhéus?

    There are a few car parks in central Ilhéus, and some of them are free of charge. Estaciomento Car Park on Praça Rui Barbosa is one. There's also the Movida Car Park on R. Demosthenes Berbert de Castro Road. Otherwise, you can park at Los Car Park on R, David Maia. To the north of the city, you'll find Canal dos Jogos Car Park, with Park Mania a little further from the city centre, across the Rio Cachoeira River that separates it from the outer suburbs.
