Discovering The Azores with RhinoCarHire

Spread across the deep blue of the North Atlantic, The Azores, an archipelago of nine volcanic islands, stands as a testament to nature's grandeur. From misty forests and sparkling crater lakes to thermal springs and whale-watching opportunities, The Azores beckon with an allure that's both wild and enchanting.  Renting a car in the Azores, an archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, is essential for exploring the stunning landscapes, volcanic craters, lush greenery, and secluded beaches these islands have to offer. Each island presents its own set of wonders, and having a hire car gives you the freedom to discover them at your own pace. Here’s how to make the most of your car rental adventure in the Azores:

Enhancing Your Azorean Experience with RhinoCarHire:

  • Prepare for the Weather: The Azorean climate can be unpredictable. Equip your vehicle with necessities like umbrellas and jackets for sudden showers.
  • Opt for 4x4: Considering some terrains, especially if planning off-road explorations, a 4x4 vehicle might be a worthy choice.
