Top tips for renting a car at Lajes airport

  • When you go to the idyllic Terceira in the Açores the best way to explore the island is by using car hire at Lajes Airport (TER). To enjoy the best of Terceira and go off the beaten track, we recommend choosing one of the ten car hire companies conveniently located at the airport. Using one of these means that you can get to your holiday or business destination in a short time.
  • When you book your car through KAYAK, you will notice that the only big international companies are Avis, Europcar and Hertz. This is because the Açores promotes local businesses that all provide excellent service at extremely competitive rates. You will also be pleased to know that fuel on the islands is cheaper than in mainland Europe, so you can do some extra exploring.
  • Because of the island destination, most Lajes Airport car hire companies don't provide a 24h service, since there are very few flights between 12:00 and 05:00. The typical operating hours for the companies based at the airport are 05:00 to 23:00. If you do have a late or very early flight the companies charge an out-of-hours fee. Be sure to ask about this if you think this may apply to your booking.
  • If you are travelling on a budget and you don't mind a meet and greet service, consider book Ilha Verde on KAYAK. They have an airport shuttle, or someone will meet you at arrivals. Another important thing to remember is that most car rental companies charge an extra insurance fee for young drivers between 18 and 23 years old, so bear this in mind if you need to add an additional driver. For the same reason, some companies that provide car hire at Lajes Airport require drivers to be 21 years old or older.
  • Book your rental car at Lajes airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Lajes airport

  • What services are typically included when I hire a car at Lajes Airport?

    Car hire at Lajes Airport often includes free extras like theft protection, collision damage waiver and third-party liability. We still recommend taking out some extra insurance to give you complete peace of mind during your trip. Some companies also provide free cancellations or changes to your booking.

  • I need an automatic car, are they easy to book?

    All the providers have automatic cars, but there are not as many. If you need an automatic car, we suggest you book as far in advance as possible, to make sure you don't have any problems. Of course, you will also benefit from lower prices. It's easy to book through KAYAK. Just select all your search filters, including "automatic shift/drive" and you can compare the options.

  • What mileage and fuel policies do the companies typically have?

    The car hire companies that operate from Lajes Airport, or provide meet and greet services, all normally offer unlimited mileage. The fuel policies range from full-to-full or same-to-same, so keep an eye out when you make a booking. If you can't fill up before you return the car, don't worry, but the company will apply a surcharge.

  • Where can I find the car rental desks at the airport?

    Lajes Airport is small, with only one terminal building. This makes it easy and quick to pick up your car. Follow the signs for a walk across the arrivals lobby to the different desks. If you have requested a meet and greet service, they will meet you at the exit doors. Remember the documents you need: a credit card, your booking confirmation and the driver's licence of all the drivers who will drive the car during the duration of the rental period. Meet and greet normally let you pay with a card machine if there are extra costs.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Lajes airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Lajes airport to off-airport locations include 2Rent, Angrauto, Autatlantis, Avis, Europcar, Hertz, Ilha Verde, Micauto, and Rhodium.

Incredibly friendly and helpful. After drop off I forgot my charger in the car and didn’t realize until I was at the gate. I went all the way out of the airport and they let me run out to the car to grab it.

Super smooth experience overall - loved the car, flexibility with pickup, and friendly staff. However, the pickup and drop off were a little sus and left us feeling less than sure of a few things. For the pickup, the employee did everything under the desk and didn’t explain what she was doing at all. For example, she took my credit card (I assumed for the deposit) for a couple mins and then gave it back to get up & say “I’ll show you the car now”. I asked her if she had put the $1300 hold on and she said “oh well I was going to do that later - I can do it now”. For the drop off, the employee approached us in the parking lot with casual clothing (no uniform or indicator that he worked for Hertz) and told us he could take the keys and inspect it now. We were just unsure if he worked there or not (wanted to take care of the car & avoid scams) so asked to do it at the desk and it did end up being him. At the end, I didn’t get a receipt for total amount charged & was informed we need to email Hertz for that. These aspects of the rental were not our favorite and it was all just a little interesting.

Customer service was rude and unprofessional. The car had been in an accident and had big dent in back. Car was not worth the money.
