KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Sao Paulo

  • Home to the largest population in the Southern Hemisphere, São Paulo is a diverse metropolis with a unique cultural identity and significant economic importance. Deciding to rent a car during your trip will give you the best opportunity to fully understand the grandness of the city and explore nearby wonders and natural beauty, such as the Zu Lai Temple, the São Rogue wine region, or the many beaches and expansive coastline.
  • The São Paulo – Guarulhos International Airport (GRU) is located 25 km (15 miles) from the city center. KAYAK assembles the greatest range and prices from global hire companies such as Avis, Budget, and Hertz, which are located within the East Arrival section of Terminal 2 of GRU Airport. Organizing your hire prior to arriving will give you the ability to get on the road quickly and maximize your time in São Paulo.
  • Left-hand turns are not permitted on many roads throughout the city, meaning you need to complete three consecutive right turns, effectively completing a P-shaped loop, to head your desired direction. Arranging an International Driver's Permit is crucial before renting a car in Brazil, as driving without one will open you to the risk of receiving considerable fines as well as voiding your hire insurance conditions.
  • Thanks to its incredibly large population, São Paulo’s traffic system can become heavily congested throughout the day. If you are staying within the city limits for the day, it is advisable to take public transport to your destination and avoid crossing between neighborhoods by car. Paulista Avenue traffic often crawls to a stop during peak rush hours, so it is recommended that you reroute your course to avoid it.
