As the largest country in both the South American and Latin American region Brazil compromises large Atlantic coastline, cultural quarters and a wonderful wilderness landscape. This is the fifth largest country in the world so a holiday here can combine several destinations. A must-see Brazilian city is Rio de Janeiro which offers tourists much more than you can ever imagine. Twin beaches Copacabana and Ipanema definitely should be explored, and hiring a car in Brazil allows you to do so. The incredible views from Corcovado Mountain in Rio cannot be missed, stand atop and take in all the natural beauty.
If you're a real foodie, then the largest city in South America is for you. Sao Paulo is a cosmopolitan of food, fashion and culture. It's around a six hour drive from Rio, so it's perfect if you're doing a round trip of South America. For an exciting visit in the old city, tourists should hire a car in Brazil and head to the Julio Prestes Cultural Center ' one of the world's finest concert halls. The building dates back to the 1920s and the architecture is reminiscent of the evolution of Sao Paulo, a time when the railway was first introduced into the city.
Brazil's laidback lifestyle does not necessarily transfer onto the roads. Driving in Brazil is similar to most Latin American countries, and you may notice that the locals driving style differs from European's. Brazil is home to the largest road network in Latin America, so getting used to the fast-paced buzz of the road may take a little time. Speed limits differ on roads throughout the country urban areas are 60kmph while open roads are 120kmph. Many roads have radar traps and speed cameras so it's wise to be very careful and watch your speed.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
