Definitely we were glad that we rented a car as we could visit many amazing places in Madeira. It was so easy to check in/out and there were no hidden costs. I highly recommend to rent a car via Discover/Madeira Rent-A-Car!

I went around the island and took the car into very interesting places. One needs to be careful when starting the car and shifting from manual to automatic...Make Sure you have the hand brake on every time you start the car and put it on when you park.

Exploring Madeira with a rental is an absolute must. You will get to such beautiful places up in the mountains and down in the valleys where you wouldn’t get without a car or with a tour. Absolutely recommend this to anyone who is visiting Madeira. Just step in the car and go out exploring, and you will be rewarded by this beautiful island!

To explore I would really recommend getting a car so you can explore at your own pace. However we opted for the smallest/cheapest car but it really struggled on the steep hills here - I would HIGHLY recommend upgrading to the next one up from the smallest so you have a little more power to conquer them! Also when driving on the main dual carriageway the turn offs come quickly with no slip road so slow down with plenty of time and know clearly which exit number you are wanting. When joining the dual carriageway you MUST check there are no cars coming - don't just join - this might mean stopping completely until the road is clear. The roads however are definitely far quieter than many places I've driven (particularly when you're off the main roads). Its very hilly/mountainous so you will need some confidence with navigating tighter, weaving roads.

Madeira is about exploration and without a car would be a very poor holiday. Some people would prefer expensive bus tours so that would be ok for them but we relished in the freedom of our Panda. Just for nipping out to the store or taking a quick ride on a boring afternoon, or a long day with a mountain hike in the middle. Impossible to be spontaneous without a car. But boy are the mountain roads steep!

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.

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.

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.
