Rent a vehicle in Boa Vista

Renting a quad or a car in Boavista is easy if you book in advance. The island is very large and most of the hotels are located at a great distance from the cities and major points of interest. It will almost always be necessary to call a taxi to take a tour outside or to book an excursion that has transportation included.

The roads of Boavista are winding and wild. The only paved road runs through the island from north to south, passing through the airport. The rest of the routes are dirt, rocky or sandy. A part of the wonder of the island is precisely the nature that still preserves and protects much of the territory, whose points of interest can be reached only with suitable vehicles.

Tips

– There is a lot of demand for this type of service, we recommend booking in advance or the day you arrived.
– If you rent a petrol or diesel vehicle, be aware that the only two petrol stations are in Sal-Rei.
– The sun is very strong, even if it is not too hot. Bring sunscreen, comfortable shoes (or flip-flops) and sunglasses.
– A bandana will be very useful, especially for some paths where it can be a little dusty.
– Always tell someone what ride you intend to do. It will be easier to find you in case of problems.

THE VEHICLES

QUAD RENTAL

gasoline vehicle

Discover the island aboard a powerful quad that perfectly adapts to any terrain of Boavista! The half-day rental allows you to see 2 or 3 points of interest depending on how long you want to stop. The full-day gives you that leeway to include lunch and return before evening.

For longer periods you can decide to reserve the quad for 24h or for several days, in order to move around the island without calling a taxi every time. The quad bike is by far the most suitable way to explore all the places on the island, but remember to bring water with you and use caution, especially in the evening (it is common for animals to cross the road).

The vehicles proposed here are insured against damage to third parties and to yourself. The renter will explain the delivery and return details to you. To drive you must be of legal age and have a driving license.

ELECTRIC SCOOTER

Electric scooters are ideal for getting around in a green way and without the need for a driving license. They have a range of about 120km and carry 1 person, at a speed limited to 40km/h. Equipped with automatic transmission, they are agile on sand, clay and asphalt roads.

The minimum age to drive is 14, and children under 7 are not recommended. The helmet is not mandatory but is provided for safety nonetheless. The 2 removable batteries supplied can be charged from a normal 220V socket (available on the island), directly in the room. If you rent the vehicle for more than 24 hours, it is also possible to change the batteries directly from the renter.

Included are insurance and medical bills for driver and passenger, as well as a USB socket to charge the phone and a smartphone holder (which can be used as a GPS).

Available every day, all year round
