Important information about Catania car hire

Can I drive in Italy with a rental car from Catania?

Car hire companies in Catania allow you to take your hire car across the border into other countries. Catania is located on the island of Sicily, so if you want to take your hire car into other countries, you will have to take it on the ferry, into mainland Italy - it will cost you extra to do this. Some of the rental providers allowing this are Budget, Thrifty, Europcar, Dollar, Enterprise, Avis, Hertz, Alamo, SIXT and National. If your trip starts in Italy, many car hire agencies allow you to travel to most Western European countries. However, not all rental car providers allow you to take your hire car into certain countries. For example, if you are renting through Hertz, you cannot take the car to Albania, Turkey or Romania. There may be a fee on the part of the car hire provider if you wish to cross borders, as it could incur additional insurance costs. It is also good to remember that they may be a fee to cross the border as well. Catania car hire companies may only allow the economy and people carrier cars into other countries. Luxury rental cars will not be allowed to cross the border.

Can you hire a car in Catania without a credit card?

Car hire in Catania without a credit card is possible, but it depends on the company you are renting from. Many small rental car providers accept these other types of payment. You should check with your specific provider before you arrive in Catania. Rental car providers that accept payment without a credit card include Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty. The car rental companies that do allow payments without a credit card require payment of an excess by cheque or in cash. The car hire company will hold this amount until you return the car at the end of your trip. The amount of money you have to pay will depend on the type of car you are hiring. It is not possible to take out electric car rental or luxury car hire in Catania this way, but there is a large range of economy cars to choose from.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Catania?

Catania follows EU driving laws. These laws state that you must be at least 18 years old to drive. When you drive on a dual carriageway, you must dip your headlights. Wearing a seatbelt, whether you are in the front or back seats of the car, is compulsory. When driving through residential areas, you are not allowed to use your horn unless there is an emergency. In Catania, trams and trains always have the right of way. When it comes to drinking and driving, your blood alcohol level must not be above 0.5 grammes per litre, which is in line with the rest of Europe. The speed limit in Catania is 30 mph (50 km/h) in built-up areas and 80 mph (130 km/h) on motorways.

What documents does an international traveller need to hire a car in Catania?

For car hire in Catania, you must have your passport or identification document, your driver’s licence and a credit/debit card. If you are not from an EU country, you may be required to hold an international driving licence. Cheap car rentals in Catania are available for young drivers, although in most cases, an additional fee would be payable to cover the additional insurance that is required. Any driver must have held their licence for at least a year.
