PalermoPros: Friendly staff. Excellent rate. Thought collection was a ride away but in fact just a few yards from Terminal. Car in good condition. Damage noted without me needing to. But actually car looked without blemish.Cons: Hire was in dollars. Charged in euros without discussion. Made it harder to check the rate was right and two currency conversions. One at a rate not of my choosing.

7.6 Good31 Aug 2020
Cons: An obvious note on the website that says online full insurance is much cheaper than purchasing on the day. The high cost was unexpected, but I felt necessary, since I was driving in Sicily where no one follows road rules. Other than that, the experience was smooth and the car was lovely.

2.0 Mediocre25 Sep 2016
Charging an extra day for two minutesPros: The car was nice to say at leastCons: You charged me an extra day because the employee took too long to check the car and do the paper work. I was told there is a 30minute reserve and then I get slammed by an extra €50. That's ridiculous. Do you have any respect for the customers? Why did the person at the rental told me I had a 30min cushion when I get screwed over at the end anyway?

Pros: Simple drop apart from no petrol station near the airport.Cons: Booked a VW Golf, then we were asked if we wanted the Golf to pay an extra premium for it. Ended up with a Dacia Sandero. Awful car to drive. Wanted a car we were used to handling in a foreign country. the car handled poorly and was very clunky.

6.0 Good31 Oct 2019
Pros: Convenient location to pick up and drop offCons: There were so many hidden fees including location fee and road fees. My two day 70 euro rental somehow turned into 220 euro after i was pretty much forced to take the full coverage.
2.0 Mediocre11 Sep 2019
Pros: Nothing they so called upgraded me in to a Mercedes minivan which was ugly and not fun to ride inCons: I was charged for a scratch on the car which I didn’t do I took videos and pictures when I dropped it off I got to Rome and they charged me 1300! Which my rental was only 245 I’m beyond PO!
4.0 Okay24 Sep 2018

ripp off by palermo, italy airport budget rent offCons: subject: Contract no. 72967895 o. Complain To whom it may concern: I made an reservation with #43733087us6 for 3 days for the amount the of $75 on a small car (reservation is attached) . Upon our arrival Budget agent: " do you want to upgrade the car". we replied: No. we have already booked 4 door Citroen according to our reservation. Budget agent: " No. you have 2 door car with manual transmission. and if you want to upgrade must pay 8Euro per day". and she insiste. we had to accepted. Because, at that time I had no other option. so we by force agreed to upgrade the car to a 4 door small car for 8 euro per day extra. Budget agent: also convinced us to get extra insurance to cover our 1000 euro deductible for total of 28 euro for 3 days. we asked her: then how much would be the total. Budget agent: 65 euro(3 days rent incl. tax) + 24 euro(car upgrade) + 28 euro(ins. coverage for 1000 euro deductible) = 117 euro with tax around 130 euro she said. On Jan 18th before we returning the car we fill up the car with gas. But, at the returning point the budget agent said; According to our calculation 5 more liter gas must be added into your bill. we were very surprised by the final bill of euro 278.49 and he told us to go to the office inside the terminal. so we went in and there was a Budget agent who did not know anything about the contract and even a conversion of the currency from Dollar to euro and said that he must investigate and will let us know soon. no news until now, It is very clear in our contract which is attached , please be inform that i am not approving any charges to my citi bank card until we settle the matter. Thank you for your prompt attention. Faezeh amiri
2.0 Mediocre2 Oct 2016
Budget took advantage of me, LOTS OF HIDDEN FEES!!Pros: The car was clean, and new.Cons: Very poor communication, as to a few users on here, i signed up thinking i was going to pay $200 for a week with a car and insurance from Allianz, but that was sadly not the case. Once i arrived, i was greeted with $300 of additional fees, Including VAT, city tax (which the rental said was already paid for when i checked out), and also a destination fee given i was not returning at the same spot, ($65). None of this was mentioned when i booked the car! To top it off, they had the nerve to give me a car with 3/4 of a tank (marked full) and have you agree to the policy of $65 to fill up the tank at the end of the rental if it is not exactly full. Ridiculous. Then Avis recommended we purchase an additional $40/day of insurance to ensure our deductible ($1000) is not put into jeopardy if we get into an accident. Just insane. SO in summary, i got a car with 3/4 tank of gas (marked full). Was supposed to pay $200 with insurance taxes fees for 5 days, ended up paying $600+. STAY AWAY!! SCAM!!

When to book a car hire in Palermo

Top tips for hiring a car in Palermo

  • Planning on renting a car after your flight to Palermo lands? If you are flying into Palermo Airport, you will find a number of car hire counters both in the pre-security area of the main terminal and in an adjacent parking lot to the airport.
  • Defensive driving is an important aspect of driving in Sicily and should not be forgotten. You must remain aware of the other drivers and anticipate that they may cut in front of you or change lanes at any moment. However, it is not that the drivers are necessarily bad or the roads lawless; there is simply an aggressive driving culture.
  • Beware the maze-like city centers. It can be very confusing navigating these areas so make sure to have a working GPS device available. Parking can also be very difficult to find in the historical center, so it may pay off to park outside of the center and then bus in.
  • One major advantage to renting a vehicle while you are in Palermo is that it really opens up the city and the countryside for your exploration. For instance, Monreale, at just 13 km (8 mi) away from Palermo, features a 12th century cathedral that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You could also visit the seaside resort Cefalu, which, at 78 km (48 mi) away, is just about an hour’s drive outside of town.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Palermo for £15 or less
  • Book your car hire in Palermo at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hires in Palermo are around 45% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Palermo

  • Some car hire companies in Palermo which have updated their car rental health and safety policies due to COVID-19 to make sure vehicles are clean and disinfected include Sixt, Europcar and Budget

  • On average a car hire in Palermo costs £22 per day.

  • Palermo is an old city whose roads date back to long before the automobile era. The roads are often narrow and one-way lanes are quite common; therefore, small and compact cars are far more suited for Palermo’s roads than an SUV or other large vehicles. This is especially so when you take parking into consideration, as space for a large vehicle will be very hard to come by.

  • The speed limits in Italy are fairly standard from city to city. Major highways post speed limits of 130 km/h (80 mph) and urban areas feature speed limits of 50 km/h (31 mph). Smaller highways tend to have speed limits of 110 km/h (68 mph), while local roads are around 90 km/h (56 mph).

  • Petrol prices in Palermo, and throughout much of Italy, are unfortunately quite high. Drivers can expect to pay, on average, about €1.60 ($1.83) for a liter of petrol while they are in Palermo, which comes out to about €6.05 ($6.93) per gallon of gas.

  • Parking in the central areas of Palermo can be a bit hard to come by at times, as many of the parking spots are reserved for residents with passes. In general, streetside parking is scarce and premium parking garages and lots are your best options for finding a space in the city center. However, as many of the sites and monuments are close to each other in Palermo, it may be worth it to simply park further out and then take a leisurely stroll into the main tourism areas.
