KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Salvador

  • A hire car is the most comfortable and efficient way to explore not only Salvador but also the more remote, secluded beaches in the area, as well as the rest of the incredible Bahia state. Embark on a road trip along the Coconut Coast, north of Salvador, with its miles and miles of stunning beaches, or drive to Chapada Diamantina National Park, which is 315 miles from Salvador, and make scenic stops along the way.
  • Most of the major car hire companies, including Avis and Hertz, can be found at Deputado Luís Eduardo Magalhães International Airport (SSA), which is located just over 17 miles from the city center. The car hire desks can be found in the Arrivals Hall of the airport’s main terminal. You will need an International Driver’s Permit to rent a car in Brazil. Make sure to request a GPS device that is set to English.
  • The streets in Salvador are quite hilly, so make sure you are confident driving under those conditions. Downtown also features many cobblestone streets. Watch out for one-way streets or pedestrian areas, as road signs can sometimes be confusing. Drivers going at a speed of 12 mph or less are allowed to run red lights between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. Avoid driving at night so as not to share the road with drunk drivers.
  • While traffic in Salvador may not be as bad as in other Brazilian cities like São Paulo, driving during rush hour is still quite chaotic and can easily add up to an hour to your travels. Plan your journey in advance and avoid driving into the city center or to the airport between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Evening rush hour peaks at 6 p.m., but avoid driving anytime between 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Book your rental car in Salvador at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car in Salvador

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

    If you’re not used to manual transmission, make sure you book an automatic vehicle in advance. If you’re just driving in and around Salvador, a mid-size economy car will be enough for your needs. If you’re traveling longer journeys across Bahia, get a car with good fuel efficiency that offers enough comfort and space.

  • What’s the speed limit in Salvador?

    The speed limit in urban areas across Brazil is usually 60 km/h (37 mph), but it may be as low as 30 km/h (19 mph) in certain residential areas. Unpaved roads have a speed limit of 60 km/h (37 mph) and highways in urban areas observe a limit of 80 km/h (50 mph). Highways in rural areas allow you to drive at a maximum of 110 km/h (68 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Salvador?

    If you’re renting a car in Salvador but don’t plan on driving around the city that much, it’s best to find accommodation that offers parking. Street parking is paid between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, and on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Rates start at $0.80 per hour, but prices are lower if you stay for longer. You can also leave your car at one of the many parking lots near the center.

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was extremely friendly at pick-up and drop-off.

Cons:

The offer listed a car with automatic transmission. The one made available to us had a manual transmission. While there were no issues with driving the car itself, I feel as a customer it is simply not fair to charge the original amount and deliver a diferent product. I hope this is passed on forward. Thank you.

Pros:

Easy to get the car.

Cons:

They carged us a empty tank, with no reason. We broke a key, which was already in poor condition and they charged us 1200 Reais (380 USD). Never again, be carefull with Alamo(Unidas Car rental Salvador)

May 2024

Very bad experience. First, no one spoke English at the counter. We received a car and headed to the first stop. However, after a first quick stop, an engine failure occurred. It was impossible to continue and neither to join the company with our international cellphone. With the help of a local (thankfully) we were able to call a tow truck. We headed then to another Movida office where we receive the "same" car, but in fact with less options. It was impossible to do a upgrade there. After 10 days, we observe that the adhesive around the front wheels (left and right) peeled off. The plastic if the front right totally peeled off on the road while driving and it could have been very dangerous. We were able to repare it by ouserself (the company fault for giving us a faulty car and not our fault). They were not really comprehensive and we are not sure if we will have to pay or not. Hopefully, only good thing was the guy at the drop off that was kind. It was the worst experience I have had in a rental car company.

Pickup and dropoff were great, but my final charged daily rate was significantly higher than the rate I booked, and nobody at Hertz or Priceline was able to help me correct it.

Pros:

Hertz/Localiza was great. I have rented a lot of cars from them without any problem.

Cons:

The problem was the address for the car rental agency that CarRentals.com sent me via email was incomplete (no street name) so when it put it in google maps and waze nothing would show up. The phone number also wasn't working so it took driving to several locations and over an hour an a half to find the car rental agency.
