Madeira Airport (Funchal)

Airport Car Rental

A large Atlantic island, Madeira combines the warm weather of the Canaries with the stunning volcanic scenery of the Azores. Whether your goal is to hit the beach, go into the mountains, or sample local delicacies — or, indeed, why not all three? — you’re going to have a great time. These are four of Madeira’s main attractions:

  • Funchal. The largest city of Madeira is the main port of entry for foreign visitors, but it’s also one of its main attractions. Located on the island’s southeastern coast, it is home to many notable religious and secular buildings, as well as attractions like the Lavradores Market and Monte Palace Hotel Gardens. Many of Madeira’s best accommodations can also be found here.
  • Câmara de Lobos. Called the chamber of the wolves in Portuguese, this village’s name actually refers to the monk seals — “the wolves of the sea”. Although nowadays the sightings of these marine mammals are much rarer than during the arrival of the traveler João Gonçalves Zarco who gave the area its name, Câmara is still a lovely place to visit, mainly thanks to its wild shoreline and Cabo Girão, one of the highest coastal cliffs in the world. 
  • Laurisilva. Located in the most elevated, inland part of the island, this ancient laurel forest is one of Madeira’s most notable natural attractions. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is believed to be 1.8 million years old and is home to many prehistoric ferns and other plant species. It is important to take care inside the park not to damage the local flora and fauna, but there are several designated hiking paths that permit visitors to enjoy the natural beauty of the area.
  • Calheta. A quaint fishing town on the island’s southwestern coast, Calheta is also famous for its stunning surfing spots and for the sugarcane mills and rum distilleries (now turned into a museum). Its founding dates back to 1430, so the area also has plenty of historical architecture to enjoy. The drive from Madeira Airport takes about 50 minutes.

We had a wonderful week in Madeira. Having a hire car isn't essential (the bus network seems pretty good) but it makes it so much easier to get to places when you want to and to areas not covered by the buses. Madeira is mountainous and with that comes lots of windy roads, some of which can be a little tricky to navigate. But the main roads and motorways are excellent and a joy to drive on. We enjoyed Funchal (cable car trip to Monte's Palace is recommended) and all of the resorts we visited. The eastern peninsula and forest lavada walks were highlights. The locals are lovely making Madeira a terrific place to visit.

We highly recommend to do Canyoning in level 2, it was amazing experience with company Epic Madeira. We really enjoyed it. - Cristo rei + Teleferico do Garajau (really nice with a lot of stairs) - Tunel das Pocas do Gomez (I loved it😅) - Cascata dos Anjos (a lot of people, But really nice) - Fanal forest (unluckily there were no fog) - Natural swimming pools Porto Moniz (ot was cheap there - about 3€ per one person, really nice with a lot of crabs on a rocks) - Santana (typical houses, the best restaurant Marcel’s bistro with really kind people) - Seixal beach (we didn’t like) - Sao Vincente - Capelinha de Nossa Senhora de Fátima (really beautiful view from there) - hiking from Pico de Arieiro to Pico Ruivo (it took about 4 hours and it wasnt such difficult as we were expecting, with hiking shoes better, beautiful views, nice shop with souvenirs and drinks 20 minutes under the Pico Ruivo) (on the way back we went only 50 minutes hiking from Pico Ruivo to the parking point to the other side, I don’t remember the exact name) - Praia do Canical (sandy beach with huge waves) - streets of Funchal

Still many places left to be seen so there is a good reason to come back!

We were in Madeira for 11 days and had the car from Airport to Airport for all 11 days. We totally drove over 800 Km. in the 11 days in the Audi A3 which was almost new (just about 15K Kms.). Ideal car for the trip as it has economical fuel consumption and is very powerful which is ideal for the steep roads of Madeira. We practically drove all around the island more than a couple of times. Had no problem with the car or the roads or any other issue. No tickets or fines. Enjoyed very much and having a car is a necessity if you wish to visit most of the places around the island. I would definitely recommend renting from Sixth directly. Very convenient, transparent, honest and reputed. Also the price is very reasonable, we were actually upgraded to an Audi A3 from our original booking of a lower category car. So thank you Sixth - Madeira.

Madeira is an amazing beautiful island. Certainly worthwile to come back. Nature is everywhere. You can make terrific trips. using a rental car is a must. So you can be independent in your choices. Besides nature there is also a lot of cultural stuff going on in Funchal. From classic to modern. Because of the diversity on the island and ofcourse the splendid weather we enjoyed our stay on Madeira.

Car is required for the convenient trip over Madeira, loads of places can be seen within shorter amount of time by driving and it is more convenient. Visiting surf spot on North part, going to Machico beach after and visiting marvelous mountains afterwards. Madeira is full of sport activities: hiking, camping, surfing, walking, swimming.

Other than a short wait for pick up van, the experience was extremely positive. We were right for time at drop off, and the team kindly volunteered to drive us to the airport, even though the shuttle was already out. This made a huge difference to us catching our flight.

During our stay in Madeira, we visited a many interesting places, Funchal, Monte, south coast and nord coast of the Island, the penisula of saint Laurent, the higher pick of Madeira - Pico Ruive, and many many other pleaces. If you have got a car, you are independent to public transport, you have got a more time to visiting intersting places, and not must spend it in bus.

I had a great experience visiting Madeira. It was my first visit to the island and I will definitely be back. We went to many of the natural pools to swim, went dolphin watching on a boat, hiked to Pico Ruivo, visited gardens, and did some shopping. The only downside to the trip is the car looks like it was hit while we were parked in a parking garage. I parked in a garage close to the marina in Funchal. When I came back to the car there were scratches on the door and no note was left. I understandably was charged for the damage and recommend making sure to have your own insurance if you choose to decline protection.

The roads in Madeira (what a paradise even when the weather is bad!) are new and in perfect condition. There are a lot of tunnels and it’s very easy to travel by car. We see a lot of very narrow and steep streets on YouTube but you rarely have to drive on them.
