Rio De Janeiro, Brazil: SUV and Offroad Rental Tips
The most popular SUV models offered at rental locations in Rio De Janeiro are: Toyota Rav4, Hyundai Santa Fe, Chevrolet Blazer, Daihatsu Terios, Ford Escape, Jeep Cherokee and others.

While selecting your preferred model of an off-road vehicle, please examine the rental conditions. In particular, those requirements that concern credit cards – when it comes to renting an expensive car, sometimes offices in Brazil ask information about two credit cards.

Before signing the contract in the rental office upon arrival, check that the invoice figures match with figures in your voucher.

Once the vehicle is assigned, inspect it carefully before leaving the parking. Crossovers and SUVs are often used in tough road conditions, therefore scratches and other exteriour defects are inevitable. Due to this, it is important to check and specify all existing defects in your rental documents.

If you plan to use an off-road vehicle in the mountains, it is recommended to order snow chains. This will save you from unexpected incidents. Other important equipment in Brazil are mandatory child seats for travellers with children. wishes you a safe trip and green lights on the roads of Rio De Janeiro!

Driving Advices for Brazil – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
Drivers should also be particularly careful in the evening and when it rains. Not all cars move with their headlights turned on, so when the visibility is poor it is better not to overtake at all and move from one lane to another as rare as possible.
There is an evident shortage of parking spaces in big cities. Local drivers park as skillfully as they violate the traffic rules. Do not be surprised if you see how one car parks right behind another, leaving that car absolutely blocked.
Fans of walking in beautiful places will be delighted with some roads as they are laid in truly picturesque areas. If you decide to stop and enjoy the splendor of nature, it is recommended not to walk too far from the car and always keep it in sight – your vehicle left on the roadside is likely to be taken by the breakdown truck.
