KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Caniço

  • Using a car hire in Canico, Madeira, will help you make the most of this beautiful island and explore everything it has to offer. Given its remote island location, Canico in Portugal has fairly limited public transport options, especially if you want to visit inland attractions like the Levada dos Balcoes hiking area and the Madeira National Park. The island also has a well-maintained coastal route that makes for an incredibly scenic and unforgettable road trip.
  • One of the easiest ways to hire a car in Canico is to pick up your vehicle as soon as you land at Funchal Airport (FNC). From here, you can drive to Canico in around 10min. When you arrive at Funchal Airport, you will find multiple car hire desks inside the main terminal, with pick-up lots located next to the airport car parks just outside. There is also a hire car return point outside the airport where you can drop your car off after your trip.
  • Canico is a hillside town and the streets can be quite narrow, especially with cars parked on either side. When you are driving in traffic in Canico, make sure you use your handbrake to prevent you from rolling back when traffic stops. You should also remember your handbrake when parking in Canico as you may need to park on a slope.
  • If you choose a car hire in Canico during the off-season, you will find that traffic congestion is not generally a big problem on Madeira. However, the roads in and around Canico can become busy during the tourist season, especially the route between Funchal and Canico. If you want to avoid congestion on this highway, you can take the scenic route inland along the ER102 and the VE5, which adds around 25min to your journey.
  • Book your car hire in Caniço at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Caniço are around 31% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What’s the speed limit in Canico?

On motorways, such as the VR1 and VR2, the speed limit may go up to 120 km/h (75 mph). Pay attention to speed limit signs, as these may vary across local areas, and remember that signs in Portugal are displayed in km/h, unlike the British system of mph. If you are caught speeding in Portugal, you can face large fines. Speed cameras are in operation throughout the country and speeding fines go up to as much as €2,500 (£2,200) depending on the speed you are caught travelling at.
