Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Ajaccio car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Ajaccio.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Ajaccio car rental.

Due to the narrow roads on the island, you’ll want to rent a car that is both compact and easy to drive. Because of the hills, avoid renting a stick shift unless you have extensive experience driving a car with a manual transmission. A convertible might also be ideal as you ride along the coast and soak up some sun.
You’ll have to adjust your driving speed based on the road conditions on the island. However, when you’re driving on the highway (depending on its size), you may drive at speeds of 49 to 68 mph (or 80 km/h to 110 km/h). When in the more residential areas of the island, the maximum speed allowed is 37 mph (or 60 km/h).
The average cost of petrol on the island is currently 1.53 euros (or $1.74 USD) per liter, which comes out to about $6.58 per gallon. This is higher than in other parts of the country and in the US, but you will find that it’s worth the convenience of renting a car. Finding a petrol station that is open on Sunday is near impossible on Corsica Island and the surrounding towns, so be sure to fill up your hire car on Saturday.
When visiting Old Town you might have some minor difficulties finding parking. Start out by first looking for street parking in the more residential areas. There are also parking lots close to the harbor if you don’t mind walking; getting there early in the morning will make it easier to find a place to park.
