Catania Fontanarossa Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Catania Airport! Then head to the city, park your rental near the center, and walk down Via Etnea, Catania’s main shopping avenue. Feast your eyes on the mixture of Greek and Italian architecture—Castello Ursino is a beautiful example.

Stroll through the baroque Piazza del Duomo square and see the Elephant Fountain, the symbol of Catania. Next to it is the city’s fish market, which many consider to be one of the best fish markets in the world. Restaurants downtown offer great local cuisine, but if you’re looking for a more authentic experience, then drive to one of the nearby villages to explore the dining options.

Catania is a great place to visit, but why not see more? Get a longer term car rental to see more of Sicily, drive to the Italian mainland and visit the beautiful Calabria region, or head all the way to Apulia and Campania. You can even pick up your car at Catania Airport and drop it off in a different city! Start planning your adventure now!

Catania Airport is also known as Catania-Fontanarossa Airport and Aeroporto internazionale Vincenzo Bellini di Catania-Fontanarossa.

Popular one-way rentals

  • Palermo (205 km / 127 mi). The capital of Sicily, Palermo is one of the largest and most interesting cities in Italy. Palermo was ruled by Greeks, Moors, Normans, and other great civilizations at different times in history, and this rich heritage can be found in the city’s art, architecture, and cuisine.
  • Comiso (91 km / 56 mi). A scenic town on the southern coast of Sicily, Comiso is a lovely place to visit. Its more famous neighbor, Ragusa, is also worth seeing thanks to its great concentration of historic churches and palaces.
  • Naples (601 km / 373 mi). The capital of the Campania region is a long drive from Catania (including a ferry trip from Sicily to the Italian mainland), but the trip north is worth it. Located right next to Mount Vesuvius and with one of the largest old towns in the world, it is a mecca of history, culture, and cuisine.
  • Trapani (311 km / 193 mi). Located in the northeastern corner of Sicily, Trapani is home to a beautiful city waterfront and long surrounding beaches. The city has other attractions as well, with the Museum of the History and the Sea the chief one among them.
  • Noto (93 km / 58 mi). The small city of Noto is a very popular day-trip destination for both inhabitants and visitors of Catania. Located a few kilometers away from the coast, it is home to absolutely amazing Baroque architecture, with the San Nicolo Cathedral and Ducezio Palace the two brightest jewels in that crown.
  • Tropea (220 km / 137 mi). Located in the region of Calabria, Tropea’s beautiful Tyrrhenian Sea beaches have been praised by visitors for millenia and continue to attract the lovers of the sun and the sea to this day. The city is also famous for its red onions, so much so that there’s even a gelato ice cream made out of it - trying it will be a highlight of any trip to Tropea.

FAQ

Can I take a car rented in Sicily to Mainland Italy?
It is rare that a rental company will allow you to travel to the mainland with their rental car. In addition, the fee for such would be hefty and you may also not have any coverage at all while the car is on a ferry or the car train.
If I can't take the car to the mainland, can I drop it off at the port and pick up another at the mainland port?
Yes, this is the best thing to do. You not only save the rental company's fee but also the ferry cost for the car. There are rental companies that have locations at both ends of the ferry route. Be sure to search for the port locations when searching for a rental car to see what is available.
Is a Collision Damage Waiver and third-party liability insurance included in the rental rate?
Yes, all companies at Catania Fontana Rossa Airport include these in the rental cost, though the deductible for the CDW varies from company to company.
Can I decline the CDW and liability insurance in order to use my credit card insurance?
It is possible, in most cases, to decline these at the rental desk. However, do note that many credit card insurances do not cover cars rented in Italy. Be sure to confirm your coverage beforehand.
Can I an additional driver to my rental contract?
Yes, you most certainly can add an additional driver, with the caveat that they must meet all the same requirements as the main driver. In most cases, you can add this on the booking page, though you will pay for it at the rental desk.
Are diesel vehicles available in Sicily?
Yes, a number of rental companies at Catania Fontana Rossa Airport have diesel vehicles available. Be sure to use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to see all available diesel cars for your dates.

Some beautiful towns, countryside and historic sites in southern Sicily, a little spoiled by very tatty poly-tunnels and a great deal of fly-tipping in the Donnalucata region, away from the town itself, where our villa was situated.

Little bit difficult place to find and a bit of a trek, but then most of the car rental places are. Bit slow to process the booking, but mega quick on the return process and very efficient. Would have been nice to get a washed and clean car as it was pretty dirty. But rather have a spanking new dirty car, than a clean old banger.... No issues on drop off with chips, dents, scratches etc as we didn't make any....

Wonderful island to visit, the tiny hilltop towns were very interesting and each seemed to have Friendly people who enjoyed giving private tours, which including garages filled with carvings or stories about famous people like the mafia and musilini’s daughter (I think), like Nino who gave us some of his fortified wine and his address, pre-printed on a tiny piece of paper so we could send him the selfie! We stayed 3 days more than expected and didn’t see everything we wanted.
