Suggest you go to kayak.com, enter your data and see what comes up. All depends on time of year, location of rental, type of car, etc etc etc. Automatic transmissions are always the most expensive in Brazil.

Florianopolis Airport (FLN) has Avis, Hertz and other car rentals offices that can surely provide you an automatic car. Other local options can be found here:

We were distressed to find that Avis and Hertz are actually not at the Florianopolis airport. Both are located off property. You need to book and then let them know your arrival time so that they can arrange transportation to their off site locations to do paperwork and pick up car. However, other local auto rental companies are at the airport.

Finding a car with an automatic gearbox in brazil may become a challenge, and may result in you having to rent a very expensive car, as "popular" cars are equipped with stick shift.

I was just checking, AVIS rents a Corolla or Vectra with automatic grearbox. It's in one of the expensive groups. At Hertz it's a whopping R$ 263 a day for a Corolla or a Megane.

Though we do not normally add the insurance option on car rentals in the US and Europe, we feel it is a lot safer to opt to include it in places like Brazil where roads may not be in the best condition and drivers more energetic / aggressive in their driving habits.

Automatic gearbox cars: so hard to find it for rent. You must book it in advance.

All kinds of insurances: no doubt; this is something you should include.
