Madeira Mini Guide

Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 400km north of Tenerife and is a very popular tourist destination all year round making it a fantastic place to hire a car.  Rental cars can be booked and collected directly from Madeira Airport which has daily scheduled flights with easyJet from several UK cities whilst many tour operators run charter flights to the islands. The airport is at the eastern end of the main island with quick access to Funchal but the journey to western resorts may take up to an hour to complete. The journey will be well worth the effort with stunning scenery along the way. Check out our great range of hire cars from economy to luxury, remember to check out the luggage capacity too!
