What is the most popular rental car category in Rio de Janeiro?

Sometimes it's good to think small, particularly if you'll be cruising around the bustling streets of Rio de Janeiro and Campos. Economy rental cars are the number one pick for travelers in Rio de Janeiro — and there's plenty to love about them. Zip around town easily, experience fabulous gas mileage, and most importantly, save cash. These economical small cars prove bigger doesn't always mean better!

It's always a good idea to take time out from the city, and if you do, you'll be rewarded for your efforts. With beaches, sandy shores, and mountains to take in, Rio de Janeiro offers loads of day trip opportunities. A bigger vehicle like an SUV or a four-wheel drive will give you and the family more comfort and room for those long, scenic drives.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Rio de Janeiro?

First of all, there's a great range of both economy and luxury rental vehicles available in Rio de Janeiro. What you end up opting for is largely dependent on what you're willing to spend as well as what you plan to do. Specialty vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about mod cons and comfort. If you're splurging, why not go for a high-end SUV, or perhaps an upmarket medium-sized vehicle? Otherwise, if you just need something to get you around town as economically as possible, we can help you out with an economy vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
