Car Hire FAQs

What do you need to hire a car in Palermo?

Car hire in Palermo allows you to explore the capital of Sicily and the rest of the island at your own pace. There are some criteria to keep in mind when you book. The minimum age for a Palermo car hire is usually 18, but it can be higher depending on the vehicle type and car hire agency. Additionally, a Young Driver Surcharge often applies for drivers under 25 years old. As well as having a valid driving licence, drivers may be required to have held it for at least one year. A driving licence printed in a non-Roman alphabet, such as Arabic, Chinese, or Cyrillic, must be accompanied by an International Driving Permit. A credit card or debit card from an internationally recognised company with the main driver’s name is needed for a security deposit when you collect your hire car in Palermo.

What are the rules for driving in Palermo?

When you drive in Palermo, like in most of Europe, you will stay on the right side of the road and overtake from the left. Note that the speed limit is written in km/h. It's generally 50 km/h (31 mph) in populated areas, 90 km/h (56 mph) outside of built-up areas, and up to 130 km/h (80 mph) on the motorway. Be aware that other drivers can be fast and aggressive, so drive defensively and anticipate what other cars might do, especially at roundabouts. The laws in Sicily state that you must have no more than 50mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood in your system when you are driving. It is recommended that you consult the local motor vehicle authorities to see if there are any recent changes to the driving laws.

What type of car is suggested for driving in Palermo?

Cheap car hire in Palermo is available, with car hire locations in Palermo offering economy car hire as well as luxury car hire. However, if you don’t plan to visit the countryside and you don’t have many passengers, it's recommended that you go as small as possible. The streets of Palermo are notoriously narrow, and there are medieval alleyways that are only passable with a small car.

Where can I park in Palermo?

Parking is another reason to go for small car hire in Palermo, as parking spaces tend to be narrow. If you see a useable space, be aware that white lines painted on the road mean the parking is for residents only. You are also not allowed to park near the historic centre. Roads with blue lines mean you can park for a fee, but a private parking area is often better value for money, especially if you plan to stay longer.
