Rio de Janeiro Driving Stress Level: 7/10

The centre of Rio de Janeiro is known for its excellent public transport network and therefore there is no real need to drive in this area. The traffic can be rather hectic at times and one-way roads can make it a little confusing to drive around.


However, hiring a car at GIG Rio de Janeiro Galeão International Airport is an excellent way to experience the region. Popular excursions include trips to nearby beaches, with a host of waterfront attractions just a short drive away from the city. Plenty of secure car parks can be found in and around the city, with parking attendants on hand.


Major highways around Brazil are prefixed with the letters 'BR', while minor roads around the state of Rio de Janeiro are numbered after the letters 'RJ'.
