With car hire in Cagliari, you allow yourself the autonomy to soak up this Italian city at your leisure. As long as you are between the ages of 18 (or in some cases, 21) and 70, you can hire a car in Cagliari with some basic documentation. An internationally recognised driver’s licence that has been held for longer than a year, a passport and a major credit card with appropriate funding is all you will need. It’s best to take along your online booking form for easy reference.
Hire cars in Cagliari are a suitable solution for an Italian holiday, as long as you understand a few basic road rules. You will be lucky, with great road signage no matter where you travel in the city. Seatbelts are mandatory, as well as car seats for children under 150 cm in height. You will be using the right-hand side of the road, and it is vital you don’t overindulge if you are driving, as the blood alcohol limit in Italy is 0.05%. Refrain from using your horn in urban areas unless you are in an emergency, and stick to the speed limits at all times. These are 50 km/h (30 mph) in city and urban areas, 90-100 km/h (56-68 mph) on non-built up roads and 130 km/h (80 mph) on motorways. You can always check with the motor vehicle authority for updates on road rules of the region before driving your car hire in Cagliari.
Cagliari hire cars will give you a wide choice of vehicles when planning your trip. With Cagliari’s terrain being diverse and filled with wonder, you can enjoy scenic road trips through mountain park nature reserves as much as rocky beachfronts. If you plan on staying in the urban areas, then you will do fine with a fuel-saving, economy car, as the roads of Cagliari are well maintained. They are quite narrow, so a smaller vehicle is advised. The outskirts of the city boast road trips to enjoy by 4x4, such as the Monte Arcosu to Sentiero Su Bacinu drive, which includes dirt roads, nature reserves and some hilly regions. If your trip involves a leisurely beachfront stay, then a convertible or luxury car hire would be suitable to enjoy some wind in your hair.
Cagliari, like many European cities, has a ZTL in the city centre. This is aimed at reducing traffic flow, to prioritise pedestrians, cyclists and taxis. If you are looking to park your car hire in Cagliari, it would be best to find a paid car park near the city centre or harbour that will be a walkable distance from all the activities. Consider the 24-hour Parcheggio Regina Elena, in the centre of the city, or Parcheggio Francesco Paolo Ingrao, which is closer to the harbour. Prices will be charged by the hour or day; expect to pay, on average, €1.50 (£1.25) per hour and €8.00 (£6.70) per day.
