Location information for Madeira

Known as the 'floating garden' by locals because of its rich volcanic soil providing a botanical wonderland, Madeira is a truly stunning island that was discovered in 1419 by Portuguese explorers. The mountainous terrain offers fantastic natural scenery which is best explored by cheap Madeira car hire.

The island of Madeira is only small, being 35 miles long and 13 miles wide, but it has several cities and villages as well as substantial vineyards, fruit orchids and herb farms. The capital city, Funchal, is located on the south coast of the island. The city has a wide array of activities and cultural attractions to visit by car rental.

There are an abundance of historic churches and cathedrals in downtown Funchal including Capela do Corpo Santo, Santa Maria Maior Mother Church and Capela de Sao Vicente. After checking out the city's history you can sit down and relax at one of the countless restaurants, cafés and bars.

Well known for its wine, Madeira has some fantastic vineyards which are terraced along the mountainside. The two main wine making centres are Cabo Girao and Estreito de Camara dos Lobos. Both have wine tasting tours available, which also include guided walks of the vineyards.

With a hire car in Madeira you can explore many parts of the stunning island such as Sao Vicente, which is home to the Volcanism Centre and breathtaking volcanic caves. Also worth checking out is the mountain village of Pico do Arieiro, which offers panoramic views over the capital city.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Ecarz.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
