Pico Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Hire a car at Pico Airport! Pico Island might be small, but there’s a lot to do. Drive your rental to one of the many beautiful beaches, take a swim in the Atlantic Ocean or a saltwater pool, walk along the stone walls (currais) running parallel to the ocean shore, or visit the Gruta das Torres lava cave. You can even go on a whale watching tour.

Up for a challenge? How about climbing Mount Pico, the tallest mountain in Portugal? At more than 2,300 meters (7,500 feet), it offers views not only of Pico but of other Azores islands as well. Afterwards, reward yourself with a visit to the Museu do Vinho (Wine Museum) and a meal featuring some traditional Azores fish soup.

Pico is a great destination, so why not extend your stay? With a longer-term car rental deal, you can live like a local and explore all the hidden gems this island has to offer. Start planning your adventure today!

Take the time to find out the locations of gas stations. GPS is unreliable on the island so its best to map out directions ahead of time. Following the GPS driving directions while driving is not recommended. We had many occasions where we drove out of the way to get to a location.

Don't drive if you are not familiar with a manual car and nervous about driving on narrow and steep roads in places , or at least stick to the coastal roads which are much easier
