Lajes Terceira Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Lajes Terceira Airport! Then drive to Angra do Heroismo, the island’s main town. Find a parking spot and take a leisurely walk, enjoying the beautiful gardens and cobblestone streets. Be sure to visit São João Batista Palace, the site of an important  battle between the Portuguese and the Spanish. Then drive your rental to Praia da Vitória Center to dive and snorkel and get a bite to eat at one of the restaurants nearby. Climb Serra do Cume for some wonderful views of the island and its lush vegetation.

Drive to the volcanic inland caves of Algar do Carvão and Gruta do Natal or swim in the natural lava pools at Biscoitos. And make sure to visit Queijo Vaquinha, the island’s famous cheese factory. Top off the day at a restaurant, enjoying a meal of alcatra, a meat dish with rice and sauce, cooked for 12 hours in a clay pot.

Lajes Terceira is a great destination, so why not extend your stay? With a longer term car rental deal you can explore the island’s less touristy areas and see how the locals live.

And it’s easy to pick up your rental car at Lajes Terceira Airport and drop it off at a different location. Start planning your adventure today!
