Cape Verde car rental
The roads and tracks in the Cape Verde Islands range from excellent in parts, to very poor, and to some of the most challenging off-road tracks we have ever encountered. Apart from the made up roads, the terrain varies from boulders, cobbles, tarmac, to earth and soft sand. We offer 4x4 car hire in Sal, Santiago, Boavista and Sao Vicente that can be booked in advance.
4x4 car rental gives you the freedom to get to those magic places that other tourists cannot reach. 4x4's also offer more ground clearance, which can be extremely useful even on made-up roads where there can be potholes or bits missing. You can get off road to deserted beaches and places to swim, surf and windsurf, and visit villages and meet some local people. There are restaurants and bars off the beaten track too. Many of the Cape Verde beaches are breathtaking, and a lot are deserted because they are not on bus routes.
The advantage of booking your car hire before you go is that you don't waste precious time trying to organise your rental car when you arrive in the Cape Verde Islands, and when you may find that only the expensive cars at nearly 100 euros a day are left. We have looked around to find reasonably priced car rental from responsive companies. Unfortunately, cars are expensive in the Cape Verde Islands due to freight costs and high import duties and this is reflected in rental prices.
