Waren positiv überrascht, da die Onlinebewertungen vom Standort Lissabon doch eher gering waren.

Bei der Anmietung des Autos wurden wir nach unserer geplanten Reiseroute gefragt, ob wir auf Madeira eher in der Stadt bleiben oder mehr die Insel erkunden möchten.

Da wir nicht viel Gepäck hatten, haben wir uns für die kleinste Klasse (VW Up! o.ä.) entschieden. Die Mitarbeiterin vor Ort hat uns aber empfohlen ein etwas größeres (besser gesagt stärkeres) Auto zu nehmen, da es auf Madeira doch steilere Aufstiege gibt.

Haben darauf hin ein recht tolles Angebot für ein Upgrade bekommen (Audi A3 mit 120 PS) -> war für unsere Reise wirklich sehr sinnvoll!!

Auch waren die Mitarbeiter bei der Abholung selbst und Rückgabe sehr zuvorkommen und haben uns alles ganz genau erklärt!


Vielen Dank!

Were pleasantly surprised, as the online ratings from the location of Lisbon were rather small.

When renting the car, we were asked about our planned itinerary, whether we would rather stay in Madeira or explore the island more.

Since we did not have much luggage, we opted for the smallest class (VW Up! Or similar). The local staff recommended us to take a slightly larger (better said stronger) car, because there are steeper climbs on Madeira.

Got a pretty great offer for an upgrade (Audi A3 with 120 hp) -> was really useful for our trip !!

Also, the staff in the pickup and return were very accommodating and explained everything very well!


Thanks a lot!

Wartezeit war ok. Allerdings frage ich mich, warum die Pkw vermieten, die auf Madeira keinen Berg hochkommen. Das bekommt man dann bei der Ankunft gesagt und darf erst einmal ein Upgrade buchen. Der Mehrpreis war aber noch ok.

Waiting time was ok. However, I wonder why rent the car, the Madeira do not come up a mountain. You will get that on arrival and you can book an upgrade first. The extra charge was still ok.
