COVID-19 Update

Coronavirus Update

Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change). Our flexible cancellation policy also remains exactly the same.

Bologna Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Bologna Airport! Then drive into the city and start exploring at museums like the Museo Civico Archeologico, the National Picture Gallery, and the Anthropology Museum. Park your rental outside Piazza Maggiore Square and stroll through Bologna’s main pedestrian area. Check out the bars, cafés, and relaxed atmosphere in the University Quarter too.

Bologna’s world-famous cuisine, la cucina Bolognese, is worth the trip alone. Don’t miss local delicacies like salumi e formaggi (cured meat and cheese), tagliatelle al ragù, and bollito misto. For a more exotic option, Pars Ristorante offers delicious Persian food.

Bologna is a great destination, but Italy has so much more to offer, so why not get a longer term car rental? Florence and Rome are close by, Venice and the Alps to the north are easy to reach, and why not explore the lesser known regions of Marche and Umbria? You can even pick up your rental car at Bologna Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

Bologna Airport is also called Guglielmo Marconi Airport and Aeroporto di Bologna-Guglielmo Marconi.
