6.4 Good29 Dec 2019
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: they couldn't find the reservation and then they tool a long time to process the booking. The drop off experience was not so smooth either compared to my earlier experiences. After handing over the car I had to wait for the executive to be free and then for him deduct charges.

Pros: The process of pick up and drop off was not bad, but the cars and prices that shows on the website are a big lie.
10.0 Excellent20 Feb 2019
Cons: Pickup procedure is lengthy.
6.0 Good18 Jul 2018
Cons: Hard to find on the airport .shuttle to get the car arrives one hour late .
2.0 Mediocre29 Mar 2017
Do not rent from Kayak.comPros: NothingCons: Nothing, i lost the reservation because i was a few hours late because of connection issues, and either way the insurance that KAYAK sold me was not from alamo and i would have paid a HUGE amount of money as a guarantee when i would have need less 7 times less if the insurance was bought with them(the difference was 20$ kayak did not gave me options). So i don't know if i should blame Alamo or kayak.com but i'm never renting anything with you guys again.

Top tips for renting a car in Rio de Janeiro

  • You can take public transportation or catch a taxi to destinations around the city of Rio De Janeiro. However, if you want to get away from the city, you’ll need a hire car. Drive to one of the nearby beaches for some water fun like scuba diving or snorkeling. Just a few hours away is also the Imperial Museum of Brazil and the tropical jungle of Visconde de Maua.
  • Tourists visiting Rio De Janeiro often fly into Santos Dumont Airport because it is so close to the heart of the city. A very large airport, it offers many services including on-site car hire. Once you’re off the plane and have your bags, simply take the shuttle to the airport’s hire car center. Some of the agencies located here include Avis, Alamo, and Hertz.
  • Make sure you secure an International Driver’s Permit before leaving home if you plan to rent a car. As with many busy cities, some drivers in Rio are somewhat careless and seem to be in a hurry. Therefore, you’ll have to drive defensively. Watch out for lane jumping and keep your cars locked at all times for added safety.
  • Driving in the city of Rio can be a challenge on weekdays. This is especially true when commuters are coming to or leaving work. Consequently, you’ll want to avoid driving around downtown from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Instead, this is a good time to visit other communities such as Ipanema or Botafogo.
