Driving in the Azores
Driving abroad in the Azores is on the right and you can rent a car using the photo licence of most countries. The roads on most of the Islands are in good condition though can be very narrow in places – a small rental car may be a good idea. Direction finding is generally not difficult, with Ponta Delgada the only small town likely to cause any stress, though most towns employ a one way system. Road signs are usually good. Some roads are steep, mountainous and winding so may be best avoided at night and driven with care in the day.
