Tips for renting a car in Sicily

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Sicily including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on June 13, 2024.
  • Before you start driving your family around Sicily, make sure to take the time to read up on car seat laws in the region. Children under 3 years old must use an appropriate car seat for their size and weight, which means using a rear-facing child seat in the back of the car. Children between the ages of three and 12, or under 150 cm in height, must use an appropriate child restraint, which can be a car seat or a booster cushion, based on their size and weight. If needed, you can usually rent a car seat directly from the car rental company.
  • It is generally allowed to bring a rental car from Sicily to mainland Italy, as both regions are part of the same country. There are no international borders or customs checks that you will need to worry about between Sicily and mainland Italy. However, there might be additional fees associated with taking the rental car on a ferry if you are using one of the ferries that connect Sicily to the mainland. Whether or not you can drive your rental from Sicily to another country will depend on the specific rental company that you will be receiving your car from.
  • Even though the country mainly uses manual cars, you can rent an automatic car in Italy. Most major car rental companies offer a variety of vehicles with automatic transmissions, especially at locations in airports and larger cities. When making a reservation, you can specify your preference for an automatic car, and the rental company will provide you with options based on availability. However, it's important to note that automatic cars are generally in lower supply compared to manual transmission cars in many European countries, including Italy. Additionally, automatic cars might be more expensive to rent than manual cars.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Sicily, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on June 13, 2024.
  • Should I rent a car in Sicily?

    Sicily is known for having very limited public transportation, making car rentals one of the easiest ways to move throughout the area. If you plan to explore rural or less touristy parts of Sicily, rather than larger cities, having a car provides flexibility and will give you access to places that might not be served by public transportation at all. In addition, Sicily offers beautiful countryside, vineyards, beaches, and historic sites. Having a car allows you to explore these areas at your own pace.

  • What is driving like in Sicily?

    Road conditions in Sicily can vary significantly. Major highways and roads connecting popular tourist destinations are generally well-maintained, but rural roads may be narrower, less smooth, and winding. Traffic congestion can occur, especially in urban areas and popular tourist destinations during peak seasons. Sicilian drivers can be assertive, and local driving habits might be different from what you're used to. Be prepared for aggressive overtaking and a more flexible interpretation of traffic rules. Like many Italian cities, some towns in Sicily have Limited Traffic Zones where only authorized vehicles are allowed. If you're not authorized, avoid these zones to prevent fines.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Sicily?

    The minimum age to rent a car in Sicily, as well as the rest of Italy, is typically 18 years old. However, most car rental companies require drivers to be at least 21 years old to rent a car without additional fees. Drivers under the age of 25 may be subject to a young driver surcharge, and some rental companies might have policies that restrict certain types of vehicles for younger drivers, such as luxury models or large passenger vans. You will need to have had your driver’s license for at least one year.
