KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Angra do Heroísmo

  • La Terceira is a popular tourist destination and much of the transport around the island is arranged for tours and private groups. This makes choosing car hire in Angra do Heroismo on La Terceira a great option if you want a bit more freedom and independence to explore this beautiful Portuguese island on your own time. Hiring a car in Angra do Heroismo will also allow you to get off the island’s main coastal road and explore natural beauty spots further inland, like Algar Geological Nature Reserve and the Lagoa do Cerro hiking area.
  • Passengers travelling to Angra do Heroismo will usually take a domestic flight from mainland Portugal to La Terceira’s Lajes Airport (TER). Lajes Airport is located around a 20min drive from Angra do Heroismo, making airport car hire a convenient choice to get your trip underway. When you land at Lajes, you will find car hire desks located inside the main terminal, near the airport post office.
  • When you choose car hire in Angra do Heroismo, you should think about the type of driving you plan to do on La Terceira. If you plan to stay mainly in the town, you will find that the roads are generally well-maintained. Watch out while driving in popular tourist and resort areas, as you may encounter large numbers of pedestrians. Keep your speed low and be prepared to stop at pedestrian crossings. On the country roads on La Terceira, you will often find that the terrain can be quite rough and roads may be potholed. Locals who are used to the roads will also drive quite fast, so keep an eye on your own speed and slow down to let others overtake if you don’t feel comfortable driving quickly on bumpy road surfaces or on winding trails.
  • During the peak tourist season (June-August), Angra do Heroismo is often busy with tourists, which can lead to traffic congestion in the town centre and on the coastal road. During off-peak months, La Terceira’s roads are likely to be quiet, though you may encounter locals travelling back and forth to work between Angra do Heroismo and Lajes. The busier times for this are likely to fall from 06:00 to 09:00 and 16:00 to 18:00. To avoid traffic on the coastal roads, you can also take the smaller roads inland to cross La Terceira; although, you may find these roads are in worse condition than the coastal routes.
  • Book your car hire in Angra do Heroísmo at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
