Top tips for hiring a car in Brazil

  • Although Brazil is well-connected by a long-distance bus system, its options for getting around short distances are more limited. Renting a car in Brazil can give you the freedom to make stops wherever you want and visit some of the country’s most popular outdoor attractions, like the Iguazu Falls, without requiring multiple bus transfers and single-trip travel times of up to 18 hours.
  • Many Brazilian cars have the option to run on either petrol or ethanol, which are both commonly available at the country’s petrol stations. If you have a preference for one or the other, be sure to check with your rental car provider to make sure your car is getting the right fuel, as putting the wrong fuel in your car can land you a hefty fee.
  • When traveling with children in Brazil, make sure you know the safety guidelines to avoid getting a ticket. Children under the age of one must be in a rear-facing seat, while children ages one to four must ride in a front-facing seat, and children four to seven must ride in a booster seat. If all of your children are between ages seven and 10, then only the tallest is allowed to sit in the front. Seats can easily be added onto your rental by your company.
  • To cross the borders into neighboring countries like Argentina and Paraguay, you’ll need special permissions from the rental car agency, as well as insurance that fulfills the requirements of all the countries you’ll be traveling to. Make sure to check with your rental car agency before booking, and don’t forget to carry all documentation with you at all times to ease crossings and avoid any potential issues.

These limits are often exceeded by everyday drivers, so some caution is warranted in busier areas.
