Top tips for renting a car in Sicily

  • It is a great idea to rent a car when you visit Sicily because there should be plenty of places you are going to want to see on this amazing island, and having your own rental car makes it quite easy to get to these places on your own time schedule. Because this is an old-world location in Europe, having a smaller car that is quite nimble and easy to get into and out of smaller roads and parking spots is always going to be a great choice. If you do get something like an SUV, consider getting a smaller model rather than a full-size SUV.
  • Like a lot of locations in Europe, renting a car in Sicily means you need to make sure that any child under the age of 15 months travels in a rear-facing car seat, and then children up to four years old must travel in a forward-facing car seat. All children up to the age of 12 years old need to travel in a booster seat, and all children can ride in the front seat so long as the airbag in front of the child gets deactivated before travel and kids ride in the proper child seat for their age.
  • The first thing you need to worry about before taking a rental car in Sicily to another country is getting the car to the mainland of Italy. Fortunately, there are plenty of ferry services that make this trip quite easy and enjoyable. Most major rental car companies in Sicily will allow you to take your vehicle into a huge selection of countries throughout Europe without any restrictions, although there can sometimes be additional fees for making these types of trips. It is always best to discuss any trips into another country with your rental company before you start driving.
  • Something important to remember when you drive a rental car in Sicily is to pay close attention to the color of street signs. Signs that have an orange color are ZTL zones where you are prohibited from driving. Green signs are for ZSC zones where you may drive, but you can only park in designated locations. Purple signs are locations where only pedestrians are allowed, and white streets have a drivable corridor right through the center of the street.

  • Should I rent a car when visiting Sicily?

    If your plan is to travel to a large city like Palermo and then stay in that city for your entire trip to Sicily, there is generally not much reason to have a rental car. If, instead, you plan on visiting several locations in Sicily, such as Trapani, Taormina, and Syracuse, or you plan on visiting great locations in Sicily, like the Valley of the Temples, the Cattedrale di Palermo, or the Massimo Theater, you are most certainly going to want a car of your own to make your travels easier.

  • What is it like driving in Sicily?

    Something that visitors to Sicily need to keep in mind when driving here is that driving can be somewhat difficult because drivers here often travel at higher speeds, there can be quite a few blind corners and hairpin turns, and this is a location that offers several roundabouts that can be challenging for visitors not used to using this type of intersection. Because street signs can be confusing or missing altogether, getting a GPS for your rental vehicle is always going to be a good option.

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

    Most of the major rental car companies in Sicily will expect drivers to be at least 21 years old to rent a car. That said, drivers under the age of 25 most likely will incur additional fees for their rental, plus there can also be limits on the type of car you can rent, such as a prohibition from renting luxury vehicles. It is also quite common for rental car companies here to expect drivers to have held their license for at least one year before renting a car.
