Coronavirus Update

Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Recife Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Recife Airport! Then drive to the city to explore the amazing beaches. Boa Viagem is famous and centrally located, but with your rental car you can head to Pina Beach or Brasilia Teimosa Beach, too. Another great way to enjoy the water that surrounds the city is to hop on a ferry from Marco Zero Square to Parque das Esculturas.

In central Recife, take in some culture and history at the Aluísio Magalhães Modern Art Museum, the Pernambuco Image and Sound Museum, or the Abolition Museum. And make sure to see a Maracatu dance performance. Feeling adventurous? How about scuba diving among shipwrecks and coral reefs? You might even spot rays or giant sea turtles if you’re lucky!

Recife’s a great place to visit, but why not choose a longer term car rental offer? Take your time to explore more of Pernambuco State, its culture and beaches. If you’re up for a real adventure, drive south to Salvador de Bahia or all the way to Rio de Janeiro. Picking up your rental car at Recife Airport and dropping it off in a different city is easy. Start planning your adventure today!

Recife Airport is also known as Recife/Guararapes–Gilberto Freyre International Airport, Aeroporto Internacional do Recife, and Ibura Airport.
