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 Catania 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 Catania.
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 Catania car rental.

Compact cars and sedans are by far the best option for driving in Catania. Larger vehicles like SUVs and trucks are at a severe disadvantage and as a result are quite rare to see on the road. Smaller SUVs are an option but, compared to a compact, they are still at a disadvantage when it comes to streetside parking.
Italy as a whole sets national speed limits as opposed to state limits as is common in the United States. This standardization makes it easy for foreign visitors and locals alike, as there are few questions when it comes to what speeds are allowed in what areas. Some of the typical speed limits drivers will see are 50 km/h (31 mph) in urban areas and 90 km/h (56 mph) on local roads, while major highways tend to keep their speed limits at 130 km/h (80 mph) and minor highways are set to 110 km/h (68 mph).
Average petrol prices in Catania are around €1.60 ($1.83) per liter which is a fairly standard price for Italy. And for those who prefer by the gallon prices, this comes out to €6.05 ($6.93) per gallon.
Parking in Catania is similar to most large cities in Sicily in that streetside parking in downtown areas can be a battle. There is limited parking in the central cores of most Italian cities, and Catania is no exception. However, parking garages and lots are available and they provide a great option for drivers in the city.
