Opt to hire a car in the Azores and you will have the opportunity to explore nine islands, each of which are as beautiful and spectacular as the last.
The most western territory in Europe, the archipelago of the Azores could well be the most beautiful destination across the entire continent. Mind you, with its array of breath-taking, multi-coloured lakes and miles upon miles of picturesque forests, you could soon forget that you are still holidaying in Europe.
Here at Economy Car Hire, we strive to make it as easy as possible for you to explore everything the Azores has to offer. That is why all of our cars come with unlimited mileage and a FREE additional driver. Breakdown assistance is also there to get you out of a pickle, while a 5% online discount gives you even more value for money.
No matter which side of the Azores you start your holiday, rest assured that Economy Car Hire will be close by to give you the keys to your brilliant set of wheels.
Collect car hire from Ponta Delgada Airport and you will be just a short drive away from Caldeira Velha, where a vast array of plants and trees can be viewed up close, while a wonderful waterfall is the cherry on the cake. Then there is Ponta Delgada’s harbour, where the 16th century fortress Forte de Sao Bras fought off pirate attacks many centuries ago, and the huge Sete Cicades Lake, giving you plenty to explore.
Travel to Lagoa and you will be minutes away from Furnas Valley, which is known as a hub of volcanic activity. As such, hot thermal springs and soothing mud pools are both present and alive with character. For something a little different, set your sights on Azores’ vibrant Pineapple Plantations – you can even sample freshly made pineapple liqueur if you like.
