Rio de Janeiro car rental information

Rio de Janeiro is home to a wide range of attractions such as the iconic Christ Redeemer statue, Jardim Botanico, and the Sao Bento church and monastery. Car rentals in Rio de Janeiro make navigating these sites and other popular areas around the region more comfortable with flexible time management. These providers offer different models for all occasions, including an economy car rental for an affordable voyage or a passenger van rental for family trips. Major roads like the BR-101 and Avenida Brazil expressway deliver convenient navigation, including regions outside Rio de Janeiro. Brazil's second-largest city has several parking areas to enhance your convenience when undertaking business or leisure activities around Downtown. You can confidently find a suitable ride during your stay since you can identify about 150 car rental locations in Rio de Janeiro.

You can obtain a cheap car rental in Rio de Janeiro without worries about parking since the city features several lots with daily charges. Also, some parking lots provide free services. Generally, the city does not have heavy traffic during the weekends and national holidays, enabling you to adjust your itinerary for convenient maneuverability. Being a coastal city, Rio de Janeiro sometimes experiences heavy rains and storms that cause flooded streets, felled trees, and traffic in various areas, including the tourist hotspots like Copacabana and Ipanema. Besides city trips, you can utilize car rentals in Rio de Janeiro to travel to neighboring places, such as driving an hour to Nova Iguacu for natural tours around the Biological Reserve Tingua and Nova Iguacu Volcano. Although the central city is walkable, using a rental vehicle enables you to visit spaced-out sites such as Sugarloaf with ease. Rental cars in Rio de Janeiro allow you to rely on your preferred itinerary without restricted scheduling.

Brazilians operate on the road's right side, and the law requires all occupants to put on their seat belt, including passengers in the back seat. If you have a child who cannot fit the seat belt, you must ensure that they ride in a secured car seat. Notably, it is illegal to run out of gas when driving in Brazil, regardless of whether your car blocks other traffic or not. You want to refrain from drinking alcohol when attending parties and events in Rio de Janeiro because Brazil has a strict dry law with nearly zero alcohol tolerance when driving. The country has a blood alcohol limit of about 0.2% that allows for certain medicines or alcoholic mouthwashes. It is advisable to verify with Rio de Janeiro's motor vehicle department to get any law changes.

Car rentals in Rio de Janeiro need you to present an unexpired and original driver's license held for a minimum of two years. You must also provide a passport and ensure that the driving license's validity covers the rental period. The companies also need you to bring a credit card in your name for the security deposit.
