    Rome has two main airports: Ciampino Airport and Fiumicino Airport (Leonardo da Vinci Airport). Fiumicino is the main airport and we offer Thrifty, Avis and Europcar at this location. If you're flying a budget airline you're more likely to arrive on Ciampino where both Avis and Europcar are our car hire suppliers. We have over 30 downtown car hire suppliers in Rome and with the interactive map in the search form, you will find a car rental supplier convenient for you.


    Border Crossing

    Travel to France and other Western European countries is usually permitted with no additional fees or restrictions for most vehicle categories. Some categories, such as luxury cars, have certain restrictions and you must check that your planned itinerary will be permitted with the vehicle you book. The same goes for travelling from the mainland to the islands. Some car hire suppliers do not allow their vehicles on the ferry, so confirm this with your supplier before you travel. You can contact us for more information on multi-country rentals.

    Driving in Rome

    Only residents with a special permit are allowed to drive in the historical centre and those who enter the historical centre in the car hire without the right permit will get a hefty fine. Driving around the historical centre is allowed.


    A 'Zona a Traffico Limitato' applies in Rome. This is usually restricted to the historic parts of the city and means that only local residents, shopkeepers and public transport can drive through the area. If you enter the area without a permit, you are risking a huge fine. Expect to pay around 2 euros per hour for parking. Your parking options are on-street parking or public garages.
