Renting a car in Madeira is a good option whatever the intended travel context.

What if renting a car in Madeira is not an option? Are there any alternatives?

There are other possibilities such as using public transport, although they make more limited routes and do not reach less known points of interest. Taxis may also be an option. However, this can be more expensive than renting a car. 

When on holidays, nobody likes to rush… Travelling at your own pace is convenient and advantageous because, you save and optimize your time during your stay. Make the stops you like, contemplate the natural scenery that the island offers, because you don’t have to follow the schedule of public transport. Note that in some locations there are only 2 to 4 bus trips per day!

If you rent a car in Madeira, you can go from the sea to the mountains in the same day, have a beach in the morning, a levada in the afternoon and finish the day contemplating an incredible sunset on one of the island’s highest peaks. 

For these reasons, we consider car rental the best option for those who intend to explore Madeira Island during their holidays.
