Car rental location Horta Airport

Horta Airport Guide


Located on the southeast coast of Faial Island, Horta Airport is only 10kms from Horta city center. SATA (Air Azores) operates scheduled flights from/to Ponta Delgada and Horta.

The airport has only one terminal which caters for all flights. Essential facilities are limited, with just a post office and a few ATMs. There is, however, a press centre by the check-in area. A tourism information counter is also provided, and includes a gift shop and delicatessen. On the second floor there is a nice coffee shop near the public terrace. Information and Lost and Found counters are located at the City of Horta Police Command Centre, centrally located in the terminal.

Horta Airport is conveniently linked to the Horta city centre. A taxi service provides a permanent link with the airport (a 15-minute drive on average). However, at peak times the number of taxis can be considerably reduced, so it is a good idea to book a taxi in advance for the return trip to the airport. The airport is connected to the city centre by buses of the public transport system. The duration of the ride is about 45 minutes.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
