Location information for Recife


Recife is the capital of the Brazilian state Pernambuco. The city has a magnificent historical center, which still clearly shows the influence of the various colonial oppressors: you see buildings of Portuguese, Dutch, French and British signature.


More than one and a half million inhabitants live in the city itself, but the entire urban area of Recife and surroundings has more than four million inhabitants.


Recife is located in the northeast of Brazil where the Beberibe and Capibaribe rivers flow into the Atlantic Ocean. In front of the coast lie magnificent coral reefs after which the city is named ('recife' is Portuguese for 'reef'). Because of its location close to the equator, it's warm all year round. It barely ever gets stifling hot in Recife, thanks to the refreshing ocean wind.


The city harbor was built to transport sugarcane to Europe. Sugarcane still plays a major role in local economy, but nowadays the Brazilians process the sugarcane themselves (sugar and the alternative fuel ethanol is extracted). There is also a lot of electro technical industry and Recife houses many food producing companies.

Tourism is of increasing importance: the city is surrounded by magnificent, wide sandy beaches that are considered the best in Brazil.


The city airport is situated four kilometers south of Recife. Guararapes International Airport (also called: Gilberto Freyre International Airport) is easily reachable by rental car. From the southern suburbs the Avenida Mal. Mascarenhas de Morais leads directly to the airport. The terminal can also be reached via the western ring-road Avenida Recife. The route to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Recife has a good and efficient network of bus lines. You can reach any destination in and around the city. This isn't the case for the metro, which only covers part of the city. One metro line runs from the city center to the TIP bus station, and another line connects the airport with Recife's center.

Traffic and Parking

Recife is a busy city, where it can be difficult to find your way around in a rental car. Finding a parking space in the center is often not easy either. It's best to park your rental car in one of the parking garages. A rental car is an ideal means of transportation to visit the beaches north and south of Recife.


Recife has a good supply of accommodation, but most tourist hotels are along the popular beach Boa Viagem, ten kilometers south of the city center. In the Boa Vista quarter, near the train station, you find a concentration of midrange and budget hotels. Because Recife draws many business travelers and an increasing number of tourists, we recommend booking your accommodation well in advance.

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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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).
