KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Sorrento

  • Sorrento is a great starting point to explore the stunning Amalfi Coast, and the best way to do it is by hiring a car. The coastal road offers breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea, picturesque towns and villages and beautiful beaches. Hire a car and take a leisurely drive along the winding roads to the towns of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. With cheap car hire in Sorrento, you can take your time and stop wherever you like to enjoy the views and take pictures. Plus, you won't have to worry about relying on public transport or the schedules of local buses.
  • While Sorrento is a relatively small city, it can be easy to get lost when driving around. This is especially true if you plan on exploring the surrounding areas or taking a road trip. To make sure you don't get lost, consider hiring a GPS or bringing your own. Not only will this save you time but it will also help you avoid getting lost and wasting money on fuel. Some car hire companies offer GPS devices for an additional fee, but it's worth it for the peace of mind it provides.
  • One of the advantages of cheap car hire in Sorrento is the flexibility provided in terms of parking. Most hotels in Sorrento offer private parking facilities, generally free of charge. This means you can park your car at your hotel and explore the city on foot, without worrying about finding a parking space. Plus, having a hired car means that you can easily venture out of Sorrento and return to your hotel without any hassle.
  • The town of Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples and is a major tourist destination in Italy. The best means of transport to explore the entirety of the Amalfi Coast and other places of interest is car hire in Sorrento. With infinite convenience and flexibility at your fingertips, extended roadtrips to Messina (306 miles via E45 South) or to Florence (322 miles via E45 North) are within reach.
  • The drive from Naples International Airport (NAP) to downtown Sorrento is about 33 miles. This major air hub is the first opportunity you will have to get car hire in Sorrento. If you prefer, there are local companies like Maggiore or Locauto, otherwise more recognised names like Sixt and Avis are available and at your service. You will need the free shuttle to get to the car hire centre and can find this located behind the taxi rank and across the street near the P5 car park.
  • As the main traffic artery for inbound and outbound traffic through and around Sorrento, the SS145 is subject to congestion during morning and evening rush hours. The old and new parts of town are awash with retail, hospitality and commercial interests, as well as cultural landmarks, so anticipate huge volumes of pedestrian and cycle activity during peak travel periods and the early afternoon hours. This section of the Amalfi Coast is a bustling tourist destination from June to August and during the Holy Week before Easter, which will aggravate normal road activity.
  • To get an early start on your explorations outside Sorrento, the hours from 07:00 to 09:00 are critical times to avoid morning congestion along inner city streets and the SS145. For your inbound return journey, the hours from 19:00 to 20:30 will experience peak activity along most primary and secondary roads. The Corso Italia hub near Piazza Tasso and the Via Luigi de Maio cross-change near Sorrento Port are automatic magnets for major vehicular activity during both periods. Afternoon hours from 12:00 to 15:00 on weekdays will witness spikes across all types of traffic.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Sorrento for £29 or less
  • Book your car hire in Sorrento at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Sorrento are around 17% cheaper than other car types, on average

Sorrento car hire experiences: the best tips from KAYAK users

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Sorrento 
Verified travelerMay 2024
Hertz office closes daily between 1-3:30, so that need to be factored in. It takes a day or two before becoming comfortable driving the Amalfi coast.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Driving in Sorrento and most Italian cities can get complicated with the tight roads and number of pedestrians and other vehicles. Parking is often off site from the hotel and usually requires booking ahead of time. Parking can be expensive.

FAQs about car hire in Sorrento

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Sorrento?

    There’s little doubt that a small economy car or compact is the most affordable and agile type of car, but that doesn’t make it the most practical if you’re travelling with a party of five. For families or large groups of friends on holiday, an SUV or intermediate saloon offers more storage space and increased comfort for long hours on the road.

  • What’s the speed limit in Sorrento?

    In the town of Sorrento, a speed of about 30mph is allowed along roads in urban areas. On secondary roads and in rural areas, this limit increases to about 55mph, while along main roads you should not exceed 70mph. On highways like the SS145 there is a maximum limit of 80mph. Be advised that there are many cameras and monitoring devices in use along main roads, junctions and in populated urban districts, so drive accordingly.

  • Where are the best places to park in Sorrento?

    In Sorrento, on-street parking (marked by white lines) is available but extremely difficult to find.

Public long-term parking garages are scattered around the town centre and usually charge a maximum of about €2.50 (£2.20) per hour or about €27 (£23.65) per day. Disabled parking is available in some areas and acceptable methods of payment are cash and debit or credit card.

  • How do I return my hired car at the airport?

    Returning your hired car at the airport is easy and convenient. Simply follow the signs for the car hire return area and park your car in the designated location. A representative from the hire company will inspect the car and check for any damage. Once everything is in order, you can return the keys and collect your deposit (if applicable). From there, it's just a short walk to the terminal building, where you can catch your flight home. Make sure to check with your hire company for specific instructions on returning your car to the airport.

Easy pickup. Brief paperwork. Fun and technologically up-to-date car. A little hard to find the Naples car rental drop-off but that's not Hertz specific.

Pros:

Convenient pick up in Sorrento. No Gas stations on the way in to Salerno or near the drop off but the staff acknowledged that issue and waived the service charge. Car was virtually new, clean and in good condition

Cons:

From prior experience with pickups in Europe I checked out the office and office hours the day before is I din't have any issues but it would be helpful to note in your information that they are not open for a period shortly after 1:00 PM until later in the afternoon

Pros:

Pick up was good. Easy assess and rental process.

Cons:

We weary of when you drop off at Naples airport. Car rental place is in weird place and a good 15 minute easy walk to terminal but a walk nevertheless. Take photos of any damage to car at pickup as drop off people not get any surprises. Drop off car min 2.5 hour before your flight.
