Hiring a car in Brazil

If you are looking for a bit of spice and flair, there is certainly no looking past Brazil. As the largest country in South America, Brazil is a dominating presence on any map, stretching from its northern borders with Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana all the way south to Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina.

Away from the flair of the samba on the streets, Brazil's natural attractions are on the bucket list of many. From the life of the Amazon Jungle and River to the extensive beaches and bays to the unique fauna and fauna, you will no doubt never forget your time in this Portuguese-speaking country.

With the Brazilian landscape, traditions and cultures shifting from region to region, the best way to see this enthralling country is by road. Fortunately, this is where DriveNow can be of service. With partnerships with all the major car rental providers including Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz and SIXT, we can help ensure you get the most convenient and cost-effective outcome possible!

  • Common Questions:

    What kind of driving licence is required to rent a car in Brazil?
    With your international driver's licence, you are allowed to drive in Brazil for up to six months. Of course, if the document is not in English you will need an accurate translation with you at all times.

    How old must I be to hire a car in Brazil?
    To hire a car in Brazil, you need to be at least 21 years old and to have held your full, valid license for more than a year.

    What's it like to drive in Brazil?
    Brazil has a reputation for awful traffic in its inner cities such as Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro so it is recommended to avoid these if possible. Additionally, Brazil is home to many motorcyclists who don't stand in line properly nor switch lanes correctly.

    It is also important to remember to be careful in certain areas or regions due to safety concerns. If something doesn't look right, it is best to move on as soon as possible.

    Car hire payment
    When you arrive to pick up your car, you'll need to pay using a credit card.

    Excess insurance options
    To insure your rental car, you can take out a Collision Damage Waiver or seek out travel insurance that includes car hire coverage. As a cost-effective and safe option, this approach can ensure maximum coverage.
