Remember that there may be restrictions on driving the car to other countries and taking the car from or to islands such as Santa Catarina Island, Santo Amaro Island, Island of Saint Sebastiao and Ilha de Itamaracá.

Refuel the car before returning it

Different companies have different fuel conditions. If the car is to be refueled before return, do so to avoid extra fees from the rental car company. Some smaller companies have an administrative fee for refueling the car if it is to be left empty, which is stated in the conditions but not always in the total price. Look extra carefully at the refueling regulations! If the company has 'Pick up full, drop off empty' then there may be an administrative fee for refueling. Any fee is stated during the booking. It is often the cheaper companies that have 'Pick up full, drop off empty'.

Book as early as possible

Book as early as possible, it will usually be more expensive if you wait. In large cities such as São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Fortaleza, Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Curitiba, Manaus, Recife and Belém, prices often rise the later you book.
