Our Customers Reviews

Don't go for basic model but take at least the next group up so that you can power up the many hills successfully without lots of gear-changing - and prayer!
May 18, 2019
Madeira many roads very steep and lots of bends
April 28, 2019
Madeira is a wonderful island with incredible views from the mountainous interior. The hills can be pretty steep so if you are planning to drive into the interior or explore the island you may wish to invest in a slightly more powerful car than the cheapest available. We opted for the cheapest car and were absolutely fine but in retrospect we probably should have paid for a slightly more powerful car so that the hills were a little less emotional! This is not a poor reflection on Bravacar in any way - they gave us what we paid for - but you should consider spending a few extra pennies.
April 27, 2019
Rodavante car hire was a frill free process, no nagging for additional services, map of the island as a basic information, good selection of cars.
April 2, 2019
Madeira has a lot of hilly roads and for easy driving would suggest something with a good sized engine. If, however, you like a challenge and don't mind frequent gear changes a small car will get you round the whole Island and is easy to park.
