Location information for Fortaleza


Fortaleza (meaning 'fortress') is the capital of the Brazilian state of Ceará. The fortress was built by the Dutch who called it Fort Schoonenborch. The wonderful climate, the beautiful sandy beaches and the Atlantic Ocean's warm water draw swarms of tourists. Fortaleza's nightlife is also famous. Praia do Futuro (Beach of the Future) is one of the most popular beaches, while Praia de Iracema is currently known as a prostitute hotspot.


Fortaleza is one of Brazil's largest cities with approximately 2.5 million inhabitants (1 million more including the suburbs).


The city is located in the northeast of Brazil on the Atlantic Ocean. The state of Ceará is largely flat with some hills, but there are also mountain ranges. The highest point of the state is Pico Alto (1114 meters) near Guaramiranga, about 110 kilometers southeast of Fortaleza.


Retail trade and tourism form important sources of income. Shoes and clothes are also produced in Fortaleza. More and more often the city is chosen for exhibitions and conferences for which the Conference Center was built.


Fortaleza Airport, Pinto Martins International Airport, is situated over 10 kilometers southeast of the city center. It's easily reachable by rental car via the Av. Aguanambi and then the BR-116. The way and exit to the airport are clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Like many other large cities in Brazil, Fortaleza has good public bus transport. During the day, most buses run every ten minutes. Night buses run every hour. For years, people have been bickering about the construction of a subway system. Sometimes part is constructed enthusiastically, but then work is stopped for lack of money. It's completely unclear as to when the subway will be operational.

Traffic and Parking

Traffic in Fortaleza has become busier in recent years and traffic jams are a normal phenomenon during morning and evening rush hour. Many streets in the city are also in bad condition. Therefore drive carefully. Free parking places in the street are scarce in the city center; it's better (because safer) to park your rental car in one of the parking garages. Parking places are usually available near the beaches in Fortaleza's vicinity.


Being an important seaside resort, Fortaleza has no shortage of accommodation. Most hotels can be found along the beaches Iracema-Meireles-Mucuripe, with most luxurious accommodations being right on the beach. The further away from the beach, the cheaper the hotels and guesthouses. Budget options can be found near Praia do Futuro, but this is fairly far from the entertainment center.

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 EasyTerra Car Hire 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).
