KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Matera

  • When you opt for a Matera car hire, you automatically enrol for a better journey throughout your visit to the town. It gets even better when you have the freedom to make your travel timetable, as opposed to individuals who use public transportation, who must adhere to a specified schedule established by the public transport operator. It will not only allow you to see more locations quickly, but it will also guarantee a comfortable driving experience throughout your whole stay in Matera. There are a couple of places you can visit in your hire car in Matera, such as the Murgia Materana Park, located 13 km (8 miles) from Matera town centre, and it will take up to 25 minutes to complete the journey.
  • Matera is a town served by several airports, including Bari Palese Airport (BRI) and Brindisi Papola Casale Airport (BDS). When flying into Matera via these airports, you will find the hire car facilities located at the Arrival terminal of each of these airports. All you are required to do is provide the required documents, such as identification documents and your driving licence, fill out some paperwork, and finally drive off in your hire car after your request is approved. The whole process will take you approximately 10 minutes to complete.
  • Pay attention to the Limited Traffic Zones (ZLT) if you intend to drive your car hire in Matera. The historic centre of Matera is a ZTL, so vehicle access is constrained. This area is only accessible to residents and authorised vehicles. Pay attention to the ZTL signs, and stay away if you cannot enter. ZTL limitations violations are subject to penalties. To help you navigate the city, a GPS or navigation app might be useful. However, be aware that some streets might only be accessible by foot or certain vehicles, so paying attention to signage and road markings is crucial.
  • Due to the city's distinctive features, driving your car hire in Matera can present some difficulties. Known as "Sassi," Matera's historic district is a pedestrian-only area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You must park outside the restricted area and go on foot exploration, since private vehicles are not permitted there. Additionally, passing can be difficult in Matera due to some of the streets' narrow lanes that can only fit one vehicle at a time. Be cautious and patient when driving on these congested roads to avoid mishaps or harm to your car. ZTL zones are present in some parts of Matera. These no-through zones are only open to authorised vehicles. It's essential to pay attention to signage designating ZTL areas and stay out of them.
  • Book your car hire in Matera at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Matera are around 86% more expensive than other car types, on average

Pros:

The car itself. Very nimble. Very appropriate for the many narrow roads in southern Italy

Cons:

Car return was rather difficult to find. Hertz needs to provide an exact address. we got lucky in finding the return center.
