KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Parma

  • Car rentals in Parma allow you to explore Parma and its surrounding areas at your own pace. You can visit the center of Parma and see the Cathedral (Duomo), Baptistry, and the beautiful Teatro Regio without relying on public transportation schedules. With a rental car, you can easily venture beyond the city limits to explore nearby castles and fortresses, such as the Torrechiara Castle, known for its romantic architecture and panoramic views, and charming villages like Colorno and Soragna, known for their historical architecture and picturesque streets.
  • A terrific place to pick up Parma car rentals is at the Parma Airport (PMF). This airport only offers rental service from one local rental company, and they do not have a service desk or vehicles on site. That is why it is vital to book ahead of time so you can be sure one of the staff members of the rental company will be waiting for you upon your arrival to assist with transportation to their rental facility off site.
  • Many Italian cities, including Parma, have restricted traffic zones known as ZTL. These zones are marked with signs and are typically found in historical city centers. Only authorized vehicles are allowed to enter during specific times. In Italy, vehicles inside a roundabout have the right of way. Approach with caution and yield to vehicles already in the roundabout. Seat belts are mandatory for all vehicle occupants in front and back seats.
  • The A1 is a major north-south highway that passes near Parma, providing a direct route to cities like Milan to the north and Bologna to the south. SS9 Via Emilia is a historic road that crosses through Parma and runs from Rimini on the Adriatic Coast to Piacenza. It's a key road for connecting various towns and cities in the Emilia-Romagna region. These two main roads often experience congestion on weekday mornings from around 7:30 am to 9 am and evenings from approximately 5 pm to 7 pm.

  • What is the best type of car to rent in Parma?

    If you're traveling alone and planning to primarily explore Parma's city center, compact car rentals in Parma are a practical choice. It's easy to maneuver through narrow streets and find parking. A sedan is a versatile option that offers more space than a compact car.

It's also ideal for rougher roads or hilly terrain.

    The speed limit within urban areas, including Parma's city center, is typically around 50 km/h (31 mph). The speed limit might be reduced to 30 km/h (18 mph) or lower in residential areas or areas with pedestrian activity. On rural roads and local roads outside of urban areas, the speed limit is usually around 90 km/h (56 mph) for car rentals in Parma. On highways, the speed limit is generally 130 km/h (81 mph). However, this speed limit can vary based on specific sections of the highway and any posted signs.

  • Where are the best places to park in Parma?

    Parma has various paid parking lots and garages throughout the city. These are often convenient and offer secure parking options. Look for signs indicating "Parcheggio a Pagamento." Typical costs for these lots are about €1.20 ($1.30) for 2 hours of parking. In some areas, you'll find on-street parking marked with blue lines. This is a paid parking zone, and you must purchase a parking ticket from nearby machines. The time limit is usually indicated on the parking sign. The cost of this parking is also about €1.20 (around $1.30) for 2 hours of parking. In areas marked with white lines, parking is generally free.

Algorythme sent me through Kayak/Enterprise to a different company. Insurance doubled the total cost. ALWAYS call and talk to the office before hiring online as much cheaper!

Pros:

Great little car! Helpful staff...even with our non Italian vocabulary and their limited english.

Cons:

No helpful papers. It would be good to have maps in English and a sheet of what the road signs mean. Not a big thing but very helpful. Rental of GPS was a ridiculously high price. $300 for two weeks. These things are not that expensive and to rip off tourists like that is just greedy. We just went and bought one! A pushy Italian man pushed his way in front of us and then went outside and proceeded to hit a car while trying to move his rental. And acted like it was everyone's fault but his own...and he got away with it. Not cool on all counts.

3.6 Poor

Jun 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

I had to wait an hour for my already short rental because I wasn't directly a Hertz customer, then I wasn't informed anywhere that they charge commission for the pre-paid gas so a €70 rental cost me €115, and another €100 rental after that cost me €177. Didn't find out until the second time because I wasn't even given a proper check out service at the end of the first. Disgusting, will never use them again.
