Car hire Pico Airport - Azores car rental deals on Cartrawler
Pico is the second largest island of the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores on the Atlantic Ocean.
The island, often referred to as ‘Black Island’ due to its black volcanic soil is great to be visited by car: the beautiful landscapes, dominated by the volcano Pico and extensive vineyards, provide unique settings for a road trip.
The main road of the island, the ER1 circles the island, while the EN2 connects the south and north coasts, passing through the interior of the island. See map of Pico, Azores.
The first stop for the vast majority of tourists visiting Pico is the island’s airport. Given the location, the great choice of car hire suppliers and competitive rates, Pico Airport (PIX) is, probably, also the best place to rent-a-car on the island.
