LOCATION DE VOITURE TRES SERIEUSE . Communication par whatapp avant l arrivée et pour le départ . Un papa et son fils d une extrême gentillesse disponible pendant tout le séjour. Merci à Carlos également pour ces précieuses bonne adresses sur l'île. Beaucoup d agence de location de voiture international devrait prendre exemple . Un gros 5 étoiles pour cette famille si gentille avec une super voiture 🚗 propre et performante. Prise du véhicule et restitution à aucune attente. MERCI CARWAVE . Nous reviendrons.

Couldn't have asked for an easier, more customer friendly hire car company if you tried! Carlos and his father are lovely, and the rates are so reasonable. No deposit required, and I was able to get hold of Carlos whenever needed. He was also flexible to any changes we made, which was greatly appreciated. The list of locations and personal tour of Madiera before we took off in the car was excellent! We had the Seat and it was incredible. We had the car for 8 days and drove it every day, all over the island and never needed to fill up until we got back to drop it off. Easy to drive and the navigation system was perfectly compatible off my phone. Truly, the best hire car experience we've ever had! We were sorry to miss Carlos when we dropped it off!! Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to hire a car in Madiera and will most definitely be hiring from Carlos again! Thank you 😊

Flawless. Great service. Easy to book, formalities done quickly but what really made it even better for is is Carlos taking some time giving us tips and telling us about places to visit around the island. Top bloke! We had a fairly new Seat Arona which drove perfectly. Will definitely book with them again and highly recommend to anyone looking for rentals. The office is within the shopping centre.

Such a nice family that was very responsive and caring toward our stay and needs. Had a great time at Madeira and was worried about running into car issues. Read horror stories about other car rental places. Carwave exceeded my expectations and couldn’t be thankful enough. Definitely will book through them next time I come back to Madeira.


We used car wave for our car hire after someone recommended them, Carlos is a great guy went out of his way to get us a car when we didn’t pre book anything. We was given a nice new hybrid car which worked great for the island. Much better service then your usual big rental companies, and no hidden costs or insurance after!

I rent 2 times with them and i had à really good service and the car are very nice. I'll rent with them again for sure!
