Sardinia Cagliari Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Cagliari Airport! Then head to the city center and see the Santuario e Basilica di Bonaria, a beautiful complex that features a sanctuary, a basilica, and a monastery. Drive you rental to Bastione di San Remy for great views of the city. See the castles, the museums, and the old Roman amphitheater carved from limestone.

Of course, Cagliari is most famous for its beaches. Poetto is kilometers long, centrally located, and popular with both locals and tourists. Calamosca is smaller, but equally worth the visit, and others outside the city, like Chia, shouldn’t be missed. If you’re looking to mix relaxation and adventure, take a ferry to the volcanic island of Isola di San Pietro or visit Nora, the ancient site of a pre-Roman town.

Cagliari is a great destination, but Sardinia has even more to offer, so why not get a longer-term car rental? You can visit other beach towns like Alghero or Olbia, head inland for a more authentic local feel, or take a ferry to mainland Italy. You can even pick up your rental car at Cagliari Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

Cagliari Airport is also called Elmas Airport, International Mario Mameli, and Aeroporto di Cagliari.

Sardinia was a fantastic destination. We spent two weeks there and did a tour of most of the island. It's definitely worth exploring both the North and the South portions. If you make it all the way up to Santa Teresa it's worth taking the ferry to Bonifacio, even if only for one day. Having a car is pretty much essential to reach the most interesting sights.

I can highly recommend the pre_check in service Locauto offers, where one uploads driving and ID documents beforehand, as well as authorising a credit card. This makes for a super fast, super efficient and stress free car rental

Driving through Sardinia is not too hard except Orgosolo and citiies like this. You have to pay attention narrow roads. You have to be medium skill driver i think, but it's highly recommend to rent a car to visit all of the beutiful and hidden places. We had a 12 day all aorund trip in Sardinia, Caglari to Cagliari about 1300 km. Try it!

Although Cagliari isn't too big and you can get around fairly without a car, you'd missing out on a wonderful island and coastline without more flexible means of transport.

Please be very careful in the area of Cagliari airport, because many car drivers are very impatient. It's really not easy to check the car injuries at the car pickup during the night hours, as there is very little light in the top level parking area.

Old fashioned. Like stepping back in time. Busy, beautiful beaches, roads lack markings and are somewhat a free for all so be careful.

Skip Cagliari and go to the northern regions and eastern beaches. Cagliari is hell-hot and humid and have almost noting to see except few beaches and the old town.
