Found about 8 miles from the Uruguayan border, the Brazilian city of Pelotas makes a useful stop-off point; we'd recommend hiring a car in Pelotas if you're looking to explore this region of south Brazil. Known as the Southern Princess because of its amazing scenery, Pelotas is characterized by the São Gonçalo Channel which runs across the south of the city - a beautiful stretch of water that's typical of the local beauty. Hiring a car in Pelotas allows you to navigate the city conveniently and check out the rest of the local area - including the beautiful Rio Grande Bridge and relaxing Laranjal beach.
One of the first things to see here is the incredible Catedral Sao Francisco de Paula, a religious monument which is an architectural masterpiece. There's also a good selection of museums and galleries if you wish to discover the country's rich history and culture. If you want an adventurous day on beautiful golden sands then we recommend Valverde Beach, where you can engage in some watersports activities. We think it is best to hire a car in Pelotas if you want to see all of these attractions in good time, before continuing your trip around the region.

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.
