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.

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). Our flexible cancellation policy also remains exactly the same.

Rent a car at Santa Cruz das Flores Airport. This beautiful island is all about enjoying the outdoors, so drive your rental straight to one of the Lajes das Flores beaches or to the rocky Fajã Grande Beach. Swim in natural tidal pools at Santa Cruz, spend a day at the Morro Alto and Pico do Se Natural Forest Reserve, visit one of the diving centers, or hike in the canyons.

In the town of Lajes, check out the Matriz da Lomba Church. In Santa Cruz, the Flores Museum and the Ponta do Albernaz Lighthouse are fun places to visit. So is the Boqueirao Environmental Interpretation Center, to learn about the area’s natural history. And you’re sure to have an excellent time on a whale watching tour.
