De Janeiro Brazil Car Rental - When visiting
Rio de Janeiro keep in mind that renting a car is
not advisable since driving through the city is very
difficult. Tourists usually end up getting terribly
lost, so if you cannot hire a driver then the bus
is the best way to travel.
The public transportation in Rio de Janeiro
is by bus and is by the most popular form in the city.
It is cheap and effective. There are bus lines that
connect the whole city which makes it a very desirable
means of transportation. Many travel agents and tour
guides would advise tourists to utilize the bus system
for convenience. Rio has a subway also. It is safe
and reliable, but it is small compared to other subway
systems in other cities.
If you do wish to rent a car there are rental agencies
that offer pick ups and drop offs at the RIO
DE JANEIRO-GALEÃO (ANTONIO CARLOS
JOBIM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT). This will be the most
convenient for you because at the end of your trip
it is comforting to know that you can drop the car
at the airport and they take it from there. No worries
on your part. The companies that service car rentals
from the airport and are located in terminal 1 are
Hertz , Avis and Localiza.
Please contact your Travel Agent
for arrangements and any specials that you may qualify
for. Sometimes you can get a reduced rate depending
on the length of stay in Rio or a free upgrade.
