KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Recife

  • Drive through Recife on Linha Verde and you’ll experience great photo opportunities. The city of Recife also provides access to numerous islands in Brazil, including Itamaraca and Recife Antigo. With a hire car you can visit several beaches along with some of the quaint towns in the region. This includes the community of Olinda with its delightful architecture, art galleries, and museums.
  • Recife International Airport is a very modern airport with mostly domestic but some international flights. It offers many conveniences and amenities including car hire services. Rent a vehicle on your next trip to the region from one of the agencies with offices at the airport, located on the ground floor. This includes National, Hertz, and Avis.
  • Be sure to secure an International Driver’s Permit before leaving home if you plan to rent a car. Driving in Recife you’ll want to note a few unique rules. First, be sure to keep your flip-flops in your beach bag while driving as it is illegal to drive while wearing them. If driving in rural areas, be prepared to drive on unpaved roads, which can be somewhat of a challenge.
  • Recife is a busy city with lots of traffic all day and night. However, driving during rush hour can add lots of time to your travel. Consequently you’ll want to avoid driving between the hours of 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Traffic is congested mostly on the highways and the streets leading into downtown.
  • Book your rental car in Recife at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Recife are around 40% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Recife

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

    Because of crime, you might not want to rent an expensive luxury car on your trip. Additionally, Recife is an older city with somewhat narrow streets. Therefore, you might be more comfortable in a compact car like a Ford Ka or Citroen C3. A beach car like a jeep or off-the-road vehicle might also be ideal if you plan to visit the islands.

  • What’s the speed limit in Recife?

    You’ll travel mostly on freeways during your visit. While on the highways you can travel at maximum speeds of 75 mph (or 120 km). However when you are driving in residential neighborhoods, the speed limit is 18 mph (30 km) and in rural communities 50 mph (or 80 km).

  • Where are the best places to park in Recife?

    Public parking is available all around the downtown area but especially close to the cruise ports. However, street parking is almost impossible to find. The safest place to park in this city is in a parking garage or lot with an attendant. Some ideas include parking at the Plaza Business Center, Maxipark or The Galo da Madrugada.

    The average gas price in Recife is ₪16.31 per gallon over the past 30 days. Filling up a gas tank costs between ₪196 and ₪261, depending on the car size.

No English at Airport Check-in. A call to Enterprise got no Enterprise employee who spoke Portuguese. It made a botched pick-up difficult.

They do not inspect the cars for safety! They do not check the car's fluids, brakes nor tires! Stay away from this company as you don't know what kind of suicide box they will give you. They gave us two cars with tires that exploded due them being over inflated. Thank God we were ok!

Charged me a R$ 12.000 deposit because I declined their insurance as I had already purchased insurance through Kayak. That's a US$ 4,000 charge on my credit card.
