This is a question that sums up well the feeling of drivers who want to have fun during their trip and avoid worries. A tip is to seek the evaluation of other people who have already used the service.

The culture of renting a car is still not very popular in Brazil, compared to other markets such as the North American and European markets. And the view that it is a bureaucratic process is one of the reasons for this. However, this is an easy, safe practice that still promotes numerous other advantages. 

In addition to knowing that booking is a simple process, we are going to reinforce some of the benefits of investing in this form of travel. Some of them are: 

Economy:  Through car rental, drivers do not have to worry about some fixed costs that a car has, such as registration, maintenance and unexpected expenses, for example. When you arrive at the agency, just remove the vehicle with the certainty that everything is in order and that the review was carried out by trained professionals. 

Freedom: By renting a car, it is possible to drive freely and organize itineraries according to your routine, without the need to comply with schedules, such as at airports and bus stations, for example. In addition, it allows you to gather the best companies and make that itinerary you so much want. 

Safety: Once again, the word tranquility is present. We're talking about travel and we don't want problems and headaches to arise. For this reason, rental companies, such as Localiza, offer additional and safe services so that this tour is done with the peace it deserves. Coverage is available to both you and third parties.

How to enjoy Fortaleza by car

Fortaleza is a destination that by itself offers a complete program and that appeals to different profiles of travelers. If the idea is to enjoy beaches, it is the perfect destination. A little more than 30 kilometers from Avenida Beira-Mar, you can head east and visit Prainha. On the way, you can also find the Centro das Tapioqueiras, considered an obligatory stop to fill your stomach. 

Another hour on the road and it will be possible to visit the village of Caponga. Águas Belas and Barra Nova are also visits that should be on the itinerary. If you have time, it is worth extending the trip to Morro Branco, which has giant and colorful cliffs, in addition to an exuberant view. 

Around the city, it is also possible to find great destinations that are worth the trip. And Canoa Quebrada is one of those that needs to be on the list. The journey of approximately 160 kilometers pays off a lot when you arrive at the old hippie paradise, famous for its parties and luaus. 

Leaving Canoa Quebrada, it is worth stopping at Praia de Ponta Grossa. The deserted beaches, dunes and lagoons are the landscape of this journey of less than an hour along the shore. Giant sculptures on the cliffs, at the beginning of the trip, already make the experience enriching. And we cannot fail to mention the bottles of colored sand at Majorlândia Beach. 

Did you like the tips? We hope they have been helpful in helping you plan your next trip to Fortaleza safely. After all, a paradise destination deserves to be enjoyed with tranquility.
