Rent a car if you really want to explore Madeira. An excellent road network with lots of tunnels linking up the various parts of the island. The roads are generally in very good condition. Mountain roads are narrow but with care you'll be fine.

I would advise if your not confident with hills and slopes to pay little bit extra for automatic as it made my driving around the island a complete pleasure.

Don't go for basic model but take at least the next group up so that you can power up the many hills successfully without lots of gear-changing - and prayer!

Madeira is a wonderful island with incredible views from the mountainous interior. The hills can be pretty steep so if you are planning to drive into the interior or explore the island you may wish to invest in a slightly more powerful car than the cheapest available. We opted for the cheapest car and were absolutely fine but in retrospect we probably should have paid for a slightly more powerful car so that the hills were a little less emotional! This is not a poor reflection on Bravacar in any way - they gave us what we paid for - but you should consider spending a few extra pennies.

Rodavante car hire was a frill free process, no nagging for additional services, map of the island as a basic information, good selection of cars.

Madeira has a lot of hilly roads and for easy driving would suggest something with a good sized engine. If, however, you like a challenge and don't mind frequent gear changes a small car will get you round the whole Island and is easy to park.
