Pelotas International Airport stands five miles to the north of the city on a flat plain, surrounded by the densely populated Três Vendas suburb. Pelotas is in the far south of Brazil and the airport is mainly used for domestic flights within the state of Rio Grande do Sul and by Brazilian air force planes heading for bases in the Antarctic. It has a modern passenger terminal but with few extra facilities like shops or cafes. Visitors who hire a car at Pelotas Airport however, will find that it is an easy drive to the city centre.
If you hire a car from Pelotas International Airport, you can drive into the city itself and spot streets of old colonial houses and a relaxed leafy atmosphere. The highlight however, is the city's 200-year-old cathedral. If the outside is grand and imposing with towers and domes, the inside is breath-taking thanks to artist Locatelli's painted walls and ceilings, and the colourful stained glass. Elsewhere look out for the Caixa d'Água, an extraordinary decorative iron water tower, and the art nouveau influenced covered market.

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.
