Location information for Ponta Delgada

Introduction

Ponta Delgada is a town on the island São Miguel in the archipelago of the Azores. It's the administrative capital of the autonomous Portuguese region The Azores. The town has a pretty historical center with among others three churches worth seeing: Matriz de São Sebastião, São Pedro and São João.

Population

The city has over 45,000 inhabitants.

Location

Ponta Delgada is located on the south coast of São Miguel. The Sete Cidades Massif lies northwest of the city. This massif is known for the crater lakes Lagea Azul and Lagea Verde (the Blue and the Green Lake respectively).

Economy

Ponta Delgada is the touristic heart of the Azores so tourism forms an important source of income. In addition, pineapples are grown right near the city, which are exported via the airport. As the city is also the administrative capital of the Azores, the government also creates employment.

Airports

The airport of Ponta Delgado is situated west of town, right on the coast. João Paul II International Airport is easily reachable by rental car. From the center of Ponta Delgada you follow the Rua Direita Santa Catarina which turns into the Rua Direita Ramalho. The highway north of the city (2nd Circular) also leads to the airport. The route to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Public transportation in Ponta Delgada is arranged by minivans. There are three lines, with which you can easily reach all attractions in the city. From the large bus station on the Avenida Infante D. Henrique (the promenade along the harbor) larger busses leave for other places on São Miguel.

Traffic and Parking

Ponta Delgada's center consists of narrow, often one-way, streets. It can therefore be difficult to find your way around. It's best to park your rental car on one of the parking lots or in the large parking garage near the harbor and explore the city on foot. To visit the rest of the island a rental car is ideal. Keep in mind that many mountain roads are narrow and winding. Fog can also set in suddenly on São Miguel.

Hotels

Being the touristic heart of the Azores there is no shortage of accommodation in Ponta Delgada. There are guesthouses, rooms in private houses, youth hostels, midrange hotels and luxurious four star hotels. If you like peace and quiet you can rent an old farm in the rural area around Ponta Delgada. A rental car is then a prerequisite. The Azores are a popular holiday destination. Therefore book 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 Rental 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? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). 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). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Rental? at this location
