Pros: It was easy to pick up and drop offCons: The car
6.4 Good7 Jan 2019
Rented a large SUV, gave me a station wagonPros: The first clerk that helped me was very kind and apologetic for the problem with the car category. Both cars were in very good conditions.Cons: They didn't have large SUVs, nor any SUV, available for me, despite I booked weeks in advance. They gave me a brand new station wagon, which was a lower category, a smaller car and forced me to postpone the part of my trip that included some dusty roads. I had to go back two days later to swap the car for a mid-sized SUV, which was still insufficient to hold 5 of us + luggage, despite I paid for that. The clerk for the swap didn't even apologize for the inconvenience, and dismissed my complaints as I "booked online" and therefore they are not responsible if the car category is not available.

Cons: They cancelled my reservation 3 weeks after booking saying that the car chosen was not available and, then, they made me pay almost $500 more (the lowest price available at that time) for a smaller car. They never honored the original price.
10.0 Excellent23 Jul 2017
Agents did an excellent jobPros: Car was in very good condition and drove well. However, the car was not clean on the outside. Otherwise, we drove the entire island of Sardinia without a problem

Misinformation about Insurance / Fuel ChargesCons: After a lengthy conversation we were misinformed about the fuel charges and insurance charges. Ended up 4X quoted price.

7.6 Good5 Sep 2020
Pros: Anna-Cristina was very helpful and patient even though the line was long and she was the only attendant due to COVID regulations.Cons: I wasn't aware that I needed to retrieve the car at Hertz at the Cagliari Airport even though I rented from Dollar (unless I missed it in the fine print somewhere, but it wasn't obvious). Another attendant would have been helpful as it was quite a long line and I waited over 30 minutes, but I understand this may have been due to COVID regulations for staffing. The check engine "(!)" yellow light came on a few days before my return, and the roadside assistance employee told me over the phone that I should explain this to an attendant upon return. I ended up returning the car 1 day early before the scheduled time, and wanted to confirm the early return/ensure that I would be charged accordingly, as well as explain the check engine light situation, but no one was there when I returned the car and I wasn't sure which number to call since I made the reservation through Dollar but it was actually via Hertz.
8.4 Excellent2 Jul 2019
Pros: The staff was very nice and friendly.Cons: The car feels like a manual when youre driving and its REALLY difficult to pick up and give it gas.

2.0 Mediocre26 Aug 2016
I would like a refundPros: We paid the insurance beforehand, and at the airport we did not get the car. Dollar rentals were run by hertz, and the hertz employees said they cannot help us, and that the dollar policies have not been met, regarding the fact that we ha electronic credit cards (something along these lines, they were speaking mosty italian).Cons: We paid the insurance beforehand, and at the airport we did not get the car.

Top tips for hiring a car in Cagliari

  • Cagliari is a wondrous city that still today displays an authentic depiction of the blended beauty of ancient Roman life and the Mediterranean Sea. Renting a car is the best way to access the expanse of beaches that surrounds Cagliari and the island of Sardinia, including the world-renowned Poetto strip and the stunning coastline of Quartu Sant’Elena and Villasimius. Whether you are interested in escaping to the clear blue waters or seeing the town’s ruins and museums, Cagliari is the ultimate travel destination for a hire car.
  • Cagliari Airport (CAG) is located just over 10 km (6 miles) from the city center and has a host of major hire companies to choose from. Once you have assessed the best deals on the market using KAYAK, picking up the keys for your hire car upon arrival couldn’t be easier. Major global hire companies such as Thrifty, Hertz, and Avis have counters conveniently located within the arrivals section of the airport. Olbia Airport is the only other flight route possible to Sardinia; however, it is a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Cagliari.
  • An International Driver's Permit is a requirement if you wish to drive on Italian roads. If you plan on exploring the island of Sardinia, be mindful that, despite being a popular holiday destination, it remains a strong agricultural area and you may come across flocks of sheep or other animals on the roads. Be careful to avoid driving on any dirt roads in rural areas, as this will almost certainly void your hire insurance conditions.
  • Renting a car in Cagliari an especially enjoyable experience, thanks to the reasonably quiet and stress-free roads. Expect an increase of drivers on the road during the peak summer holiday period, especially surrounding the Poetto beach district. This can, however, be easily managed by providing a little extra time to reach your destination.

  • The island of Sardinia has incredible scenery and weather, leading to it often being referred to as a micro-continent. You should do your best to help preserve its nature during your trip by renting an economical car. A Fiat Panda or Citroen C1 will help reduce emissions and will have no problem navigating the spectacular coastal roads.

  • In urban areas throughout Cagliari, the speed limit is a maximum of 50 km/h (31 mph); however, it can be slower on major thoroughfares or laneways if signed. The maximum speed limit of other major roads and highways is 90 km/h (55 mph), except for a section of the 131 Highway which has a limit of 110 km/h (68 mph).

  • The average price per liter of petrol is €1.50, which equates to approximately $6.44 USD per gallon. Be mindful that many of the small independent petrol stations across Sardinia close between 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm, as well as all day on Sundays. So, before leaving for a day of coastal exploration, be sure to fill up your tank.

  • Parking is quite accessible throughout the city; however, be sure to observe the indicated signage and parking rules. Blue lines indicate that you must pay for parking at a nearby meter, white lines indicate that it is a free parking spot (there may be a time limit), while yellow lines indicate a reserved parking space.
