Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Sicily?

The law in Italy, which covers car hire in Sicily, states that you have to be at least 18 years of age but younger than 75. Various companies also have their own requirements to hire cars in Sicily, and many will charge an extra fee for drivers under 25 – particularly if you hire something like a passenger van or want luxury car hire in Sicily. You can use your UK driving licence as per EU policy, so you won’t need an International Driving Permit.

What are the rules for driving in Sicily?

To use your car hire in Sicily, you’ll need to carry your licence with you at all times, as well as the insurance documents for the vehicle, which the agent should give you when you hire cars in Sicily. Pay attention to the speed limits, as a speeding ticket will also incur a penalty fee on your car hire account. These are 50 km/h (about 31 mph) in urban areas, 90-110 km/h (about 55-68 mph) on secondary roads and 130 km/h (about 80 mph) on motorways. Also note when you book Sicily car hire that the maximum blood alcohol limit for driving in Sicily is lower than that in the UK, at 50 mg per 100 ml rather than 80 mg.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Sicily?

The cities and towns often have narrow, old streets that are very pedestrianised, so choose car hire in Sicily according to your own travel plans. If you’re intending to spend most of your time in one of the cities, like Palermo, economy car hire such as a compact car, a hatchback or a small sedan will be suitable. On the other hand, if you’re going to explore the island’s other attractions, get something like an SUV or an MPV for your cheap car hire in Sicily, so you can drive on the tarred and the rural roads with equal ease. You could also spoil yourself with a convertible.

Where are the best places to park in Sicily?

If you book Sicily car hire and stay in one of the island’s cities, you’ll pay between €0.80 and €2.50 (about £0.60-2.10). In the larger cities, like Palermo, it’s best to pay the fee, as walking from the outskirts can take a while; but in the smaller towns, you’ll be able to find free on-street parking within walking distance of the centre. Saving on parking fees will help create an overall package of cheap car hire in Sicily.
