Top tips for renting a car at Pico Island airport

  • Car hire at Pico Island Airport can often be an easier option over taxis or the infrequent public bus operating from the airport. You should be able to avoid long waits or queues, particularly when booking in advance. Since the airport is very compact with few facilities, vehicle rental is an easy way to swiftly get on the road to explore the beautiful scenery at your own pace.
  • Due to the popularity of car hire at Pico Island Airport, as well as its small size, you may experience queues for the rental desks, as well as reduced availability of the selection of vehicles on offer upon arrival. Therefore, we recommend booking in advance to ensure that you have a suitable vehicle organised and ready for you when you arrive. Some companies will even be able to drop off your rental vehicle outside the airport for you from their office to save you waiting on a shuttle service.
  • When returning your rental vehicle to the airport, a petrol station can be located around a four-minute drive away: handy for refuelling your vehicle before dropping it off. You may also be able to return your vehicle to nearby Madalena then take a taxi from there, which is useful if your flight departs when the vehicle rental office is closed. This will help ensure you have plenty of time before your flight departs.
  • Pico Island Airport car hire can be a good option for those wishing to visit the neighbouring islands of São Jorge as well as Faial as cars can be taken aboard the frequent ferries running between the islands. Many companies will allow you to return your rental vehicle to a different location if you are not departing from the same airport. This has the benefit of ensuring that you have a vehicle organised for each island you visit and often works out cheaper too.
  • Book your rental car at Pico Island airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Finding the rental desk was awful. Sixt isn’t an actual rental company at this airport. They book cars through another company which would be fine if there was a sign anywhere for sixt but there is not so you just have to wait in line to ask different car rental companies if they’re doing sixt rental’s.

The car had a danger light on and they told us to come back the next day to change it and they were closed. They could have told us that they don't have another car and we would have not waisted so much time to go to the airport everyday. very rude and unprofessional staff bad management all around
