Using its more formal name Madeira Airport, Funchal Airport has also, in its time, been known as Santa Catarina Airport.  Dating back to the mid 1960’s the airport welcomes its fair share of national and international traffic.  Known as being a bit of a trickly landing spot, the airport has recently undergone substantial improvement.

Estate Car Hire in Funchal Airport

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Estate car hire in Funchal Airport is one of the most popular selections made by parents with babies or small children.  These people know full well how much luggage they’re likely to have when they touch down.  They know that buggies and travel cots always take up more space than you imagine and that they also need to find room for clothes and other bits and pieces.

Sports Car Hire in Funchal Airport

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

If you do a Google search for sports car hire in Funchal Airport, you’ll be initially impressed to find that there are 112,000 responses to this request.  What you mightn’t be so happy about however, is the apparent lack of what I’d call “real” sports cars.  Although Car Del Mar, Saab UK (oddly enough) and Portugal Auto Rentals came up in the sponsored search results, none of them offered me what I’d classify as a classic sports car.  In fact Car Del Mar had no vehicles available at all for my dates!

What I’d suggest therefore is that sports car hire in Funchal Airport isn’t going to be a simple case of getting online and booking.  If you have your heart set on sports car hire in Funchal Airport, it’s well worth getting on the phone to see if any of the companies can come up with an option which meets your expectations.
