Why rent a car in Madeira?

Madeira is a great destination to discover by car. From capital Funchal to little villages, rocky beaches, and impressive mountains, having your own wheels is the best way to see it in its full diversity.

Madeira

Top ways to enter Madeira

  • Madeira Airport: Named after the living Portuguese football legend Cristiano Ronaldo (whose statue greets the arriving visitors), Madeira Airport is served by more than 40 airlines that connect the island to destinations in mainland Europe.
  • Porto Santo Airport: The second and much smaller airport of Madeira, serving the island of the same name, has regular service to Madeira Island and Lisbon, as well as summer flights to and from Germany, Belgium, and the United Kingdom.

City facts

  • An island archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, Madeira is an autonomous region of Portugal. Its population is just over 250,000 (according to the 2021 census).
  • The largest city and capital is Funchal.
  • Madeira enjoys much warmer climate than continental Portugal. The summers are hot and very dry. Even in winter, the temperature rarely drops below 15 (60) °C (°F). Despite that, it’s not rare for snowfall to occur in the Madeira mountains at least once a year.. 

Top sights and activities

  • Funchal. Madeira’s capital and by far the largest city has different attractions like the Madeira Botanical Garden, the historic Madeira Market where you can still buy produce from local farmers, and the beautiful. São Lourenço Palace
  • Porto da Cruz. The small and cozy village on the Atlantic Coast that lives in the shadow of Penha da Águia (the Eagle Rock) boasts regional museums, a rum factory, mountains for hiking, and impressive surfing waves.
  • Calheta. Calheta is most famous for its sugarcane museum and visiting here can be easily combined with seeing the two neighboring fishing villages, Paul do Mar and Jardim to Mar.
  • Monte Palace. Monte Palace is a former palace located in the hills above Funchal and was built in the late 19th century by a wealthy businessman, and was later converted into a museum. Today, the museum is set within lush gardens, featuring a range of exotic plants and flowers, as well as several lakes and fountains. The palace itself is a stunning example of 19th-century architecture and is filled with an impressive collection of art, artifacts, and other objects of historical and cultural interest.
  • Use this guide to find more of the best things to do in Madeira.

Traffic and parking

  • You can only enter the roundabout after giving way to cars already on it.
  • The car documentation and insurance always has to be inside a vehicle.
  • Drivers can only use a mobile phone if it is a hands free or an earpiece.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.2 for novice drivers.
  • Safety cameras are in use.
  • When parking in a street, your car must be parked facing the direction of travel.

Toll roads

There are no toll roads in Madeira, but there are quite a few in mainland Portugal. See the official website for maps and prices.

Ideas for day trips

  • Ponta de São Lourenço. This nature reserve is where unique plants like the Ice Plant and the Cardoon have found their home. Those who dare to climb the steep mountain paths and the volcanic rocks will be rewarded with impressive ocean views.
  • Ribeiro Frio Natural Park. Another nature reserve, Ribeiro Frio can be best explored by walking its levadas or nature paths. The only human activity here is the trout farm that you can visit.
  • Porto Santo. The ferry to Porto Santo Island takes about two hours from Madeira Island, but is well worth the trip. The cozy Vila Baleira is the only human settlement on the island, so there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the island’s wild beaches and private atmosphere.
  • The São Vicente Caves. These caves were formed by the eruption of a volcanic vent, which caused the surrounding rock to melt and form lava tubes. Over time, the lava tubes cooled and solidified, creating the caves that we see today. They were first explored by a team of geologists in the early 20th century and are a popular Madeira day trip today (there is also a museum there).

Most popular cars

The most popular rental cars in Madeira are the VW Polo, the Ford Fiesta, and the Fiat 500. The most popular rental car types are economy, mini, and compact.

Further destinations

  • The Azores. Even further out in the Atlantic Ocean than Madeira and lying nearly halfway between Europe and North America, the nine Azores islands offer even more dramatic mountains, volcanoes, and beaches. It is not possible to take a rental car on a trip between the islands, but there is a direct flight from Funchal to Ponta Delgada, the main city of the largest of the Azores Islands, Sao Miguel, and you can pick up another rental car there.
  • Lisbon. Easily reached by a number of flights every day, Portugal’s capital is one of the most fun and colorful cities in Europe. Simultaneously lively and relaxed, it is known for its rich history and cultural life, as well as landmarks such as São Jorge Castle, the ruins of the medieval Carmo Church and Convent which retain memories of the earthquake of 1755, and the architecture in the nearby town of Sintra. Located in the center of Portugal, Lisbon can also be a hub from which to explore the rest of the mainland.
  • Porto. Another great Portuguese city just a relatively short flight away from Funchal, Porto is notable for its unique architecture, cuisine, and atmosphere. The city is also characterized by a great learning spirit exemplified by places like the Museum of Sacred Art and Archaeology, the House of Music, and the Port Wine Museum. After exploring the city, why not travel even further and see the rest of Northern Portugal that boasts attractions like Peneda-Gerês National Park?

Everywhere we went on the island was beautiful and the people were friendly. I wish we could teach the people in my home country to drive like they do here. On a personal fitness level, some of the terrain was medium to difficult depending one which trials/ hikes you went on. Good boots not shoes or flip flops is a must, as well as being properly hydrated, stopped to help out a few people who were suffering heat stroke/ dehydration because of that fact.

Unfortunately costings in Madeira are on the rise. Streets are getting increasingly busy. On street parking which used to be free or very low cost is now beginning to increase in price and areas. Attitude towards U.K. citizens queueing at airport is becoming very impolite due to the U.K. not being in the EU, with EU citizens more or less walking straight through. It should be remembered how many holidaymakers come from U.K. RESPECT!! All commercial enterprises ( car hirers, restaurants, hotels, etc. ) with the exception of political authorities recognise their need for tourism, UK and others.

Madeira is simply wonderful! The only problem with Madeira is the streets and incredibly narrow and steep, so while a smaller car can fit anywhere, it will not be able to go up hill very effectively. We had quite a large car - Nissan Qashqai, so the narrow streets were a big problem, but luckily nothing happened. But there were no problems going up hill, like our friends who had a smaller car.

Great restaurants with very cheap food and lovely food too. Madeira was nice but ‘personally’ it just wasn’t for us. We are a young 36 year old couple and the island is more for people from 50+ I would say. No night life, no nice beaches. Very very hilly and having a car is highly recommended unless you are happy to be stuck at your hotel. If you don’t have a car, then I recommend you stay in the centre of Funchal. Again, lovely island but just not for us.

Madeira is beautiful. Water in the ocean is warmer than I thought. Funchal is a big city and offers a lot of attractions. Pico Ruivo offers great views, and the way up is quite easy. Santana is a lovely small city. Santa Cruz is calm and good for rest, it also gives possibility to watch landing planes from a close distance. The black beach in Seixal with small waterfalls is really like from a paradise.
