Top tips for renting a car in Salento

  • Most flights to Salento are served at Brindisi Airport (BDS), also called Salento Airport and Brindisi Papola Casale Airport. At this airport, you can easily rent a vehicle, given that it features a rental car facility immediately beside the main terminal building. This facility hosts counters for agencies like Autovia, Avis, Hertz, Locauto, Loran, Noleggiare, Sixt, Sicily by Car, and Leasys. Since the car collection point is a few steps from the rental facility, you won't require ground transportation to get to your preferred agency's counter or pickup point.
  • Car rentals in Salento offer a variety of rentals, including mini, economy, sedan, and SUV rentals. Before settling on a given rental, consider the number of individuals accompanying you on your trip. For instance, hiring a mini or economy rental would be a wise move if you plan on using the vehicle alone or with just one other individual, while renting an intermediate or standard sedan would be appropriate if you plan on using the vehicle with up to four other adults. The rental you select should also be capable of reaching the destinations you want to visit. With this in mind, consider renting an SUV if you plan on visiting Salento destinations accessed via rough roads.
