Brazil car hire information

When driving rental cars in Brazil, keep your headlights on at all times, even during the day. Avoid colliding with pedestrians at all costs, of course, but don’t halt suddenly to allow them to cross the road as the drivers behind you might overtake your hire car just when the pedestrian thinks it is safe to cross. Brasilia is the exception to this informal ‘rule’. Motorcycles are allowed to weave through traffic by constantly changing lanes. They keep up a continuous beeping, so always look and listen before changing lanes and be aware that mopeds will overtake you on both inside and outside lanes. Some of the best-kept roads are toll roads, so be prepared to pay the legally approved fee. Look for octagonal red signs marked ‘PARE’ because they are stop signs and stick to the surprisingly low speed limits indicated by signs in km/h and not mph.

Brazilian car rental agencies need to see your driving licence and some photo ID, usually your passport. Always take a printout of your car rental booking confirmation because it will often show a better deal than local on-the-spot car hire rates. Without written confirmation of your car rental deal, you will have to pay local rates. Double-check the small print as some car hire companies will not let you pay for car hire using a debit card and only accept credit card payments. Also, check the details for age restrictions. Each car rental company has its own stipulations, but you must usually be between 22 and 80 years old to drive rental cars. They may allow younger drivers to rent a car as long as they pay a young driver surcharge.

The heaviest traffic is in mega-cities such as Sao Paulo and Rio da Janeiro, both appearing on lists of the top ten most congested cities. Always keep your windows closed and your hire car doors locked when stationary in traffic. The capital, Brasilia, is unique as it was planned with cars in mind and has hundreds, if not thousands, of roundabouts, zebra crossings (pedestrians do have the right of way in Brasilia), speed cameras and speed bumps designed to keep traffic flowing smoothly. However, you will want to rent a car to get out of the city. Highways are marked 'BR' followed by three digits. The BR-050 linking Brasilia to Sao Paulo and the busiest port in South America, Porto de Santos, is always full of lorries carrying goods to and from the port, as is BR-101 running through twelve provinces along the East coast of Brazil.

Take into account that some of the best scenic routes in Brazil are not paved. The RS-427 that leads up from the BR-101 coastal highway into the spectacular ravines and waterfalls of the Serra Geral and Aparados da Serra national parks is sometimes impassable even in a 4WD and unsuitable for a 2WD, so always discuss your route with your car hire agency in advance. A more accessible route is to the mountain resort town of Petropolis, in the hills above Rio de Janeiro. Visitors driving rental cars often take the scenic BR-040 toll road out of Rio, then wind their way up through lush greenery and wooded hills until they reach Petropolis on the edge of the Serra dos Orgaos national park. You can also fly to elegant Sao Luis in Maranhao province in the far north of Brazil and rent a car there to explore the wide beaches and undeveloped countryside of Para and Maranhao provinces.
