Thank you for t

Thank you for the opportunity to assist. I have rented vehicles on 4 occasions over the past few months and have utilised the Rhino website on every occasion. I have found Rhino to be the most efficient method I have ever used to hire vehicles. Not only is it easy but you save money as well.

Madeira Airport Mini Guide

Who Visits Madeira?
Madeira is popular with older tourists for its old world charm and low key attractions. It attracts fewer younger tourists as there aren’t the beaches, noisy bars and clubs. There’s a lot to see with the historical and geographical position of the island in the world of exploration and trade. Being volcanic, the few beaches tend to be dark sand but the real draw of the island is the year round mild temperatures making it popular as a winter destination. 2.3 million people used the airport last year, a continuing increase on previous years.

Who Flies to Madeira Airport?
The airport is served by a wide range of airlines both seasonal chartered and scheduled flights. Without exception, all flights are from European countries and include a number of budget airlines including easyJet.

What is the Airport Like?
Interestingly, most of the terminal is underground and can’t be seen. It was considered to be one of the hairiest places to take off from in its early days as the runway ended abruptly at the edge of a cliff. Several clever extensions have now made it less of a fright! The current terminal building, opened in 1973 is functional and has a modern feel to it although it’s a little tired in places.

What Should I do When I Arrive?
The airport has three information desks designated by unusual acronyms. The DRT desk is for tourist information including onward travel and for accommodation in the main city and towns, the RT desk is for specialist countryside accommodation whilst the ANAM desk is for general airport enquiries including access to assistance for passengers with reduced mobility. If you’re catching the bus from the airport it goes from Funchal to Machico via the airport. Taxis are also available for the journey into Funchal. Both means of transport are very cheap costing less than five euros. There is a dedicated airport bus into Funchal but it is more expensive than the ordinary buses and taxis.

If you have pre-booked car hire, the desks are found on level 0 of the airport. Access to the city is very easy and quick. If you need money there is a branch of Banco Santander and a foreign exchange office, called Unicambio, also on level 0.

And When I Leave Madeira?
You’ll be spoilt for choice at the airport with your shopping. There are numerous shops on the four different levels of the airport including a shop selling Madeira wine and one selling football memorabilia. There are duty free outlets on levels 1 and 2 selling the typical range of duty free goods. There are also a number of cafes, bars and restaurants on each level serving a wide range of dishes to suit all tastes and purses. The top floor has a children’s play area with a café/restaurant from where parents can keep watch over their children whilst enjoying a drink or meal. There are Wi-Fi facilities in many areas of the airport, just look out for the signs.

Madeira Airport which is informally also known as Funchal Airport is situated near Funchal, Madeira in Portugal. It used to be renowned for its very short runway which surrounded by mountainous regions and the ocean meant it was difficult to land there for even the most experienced pilots. It officially opened in July 1964 and today it handles both national and international air traffic for the island of Madeira.

Hiring a car at Madeira Airport is a popular choice for holidaymakers who are keen to explore the island and surrounding areas. Rhinocarhire.com can supply you with a wide range of vehicle to meet your requirements, from an economy car up to a more luxurious saloon.
