Palermo Airport Car Hire

Airport Car Hire

Palermo Airport, though serving the capital of the island, is the second-busiest airport on Sicily. It is a major gateway for tourist from all over, but particularly Brits. The airport serves as a great gateway to the northwestern part of the island and some of its most scenic attractions. 

Tolls: There are some toll roads on Sicily. An example is the motorway between Palermo and Messina (the A20). Fortunately, it is possible to pay for tolls with cash. No electronic transponder is needed on Sicily.  

Taking a hire car to the mainland: Most hire companies at Palermo Airport allow their cars to be taken between Sicily and mainland Italy. Usually, travellers make this a one-way trip (that is, not returning to Siciliy). There is an additional fee for this, though it is not large percentage-wise if hiring a car for a week or more. You can search for the location where you would like to drop off the car and the extra fee will be included in the total prices. 

One-way rental between Sicily and Sardinia may not be available by the specific hire company you choose. And if they are, the fee is significantly higher than travelling to the mainland. 

So don't wait! Plan your trip to Sicily, hire a car, and enjoy the sunny beaches! And here are some destinations in the northern part of the island to put on your list: 

  • The ancient city of Syracuse
  • Madonie National Park
  • The ever-popular beach resort of Cefalù

Car hire desks

The largest car hire brands have desks in the arrivals hall of the airport. Customers check-in at the desk and then proceed to a car park just outside the terminal to collect their car.

Smaller and low-cost brands have locations near the airport and provide either a free shuttle bus or have a representative meet you at the airport.

Services and facilities

You’ll find several bars, restaurants, and pizzerias, as well as shops and duty-free stores. There are also cashpoints, a currency exchange, a lost and found office, a pharmacy, and two electronic device recharge booths. The airport is fully equipped for travellers with reduced mobility.

Nearest petrol station

The closest petrol station to the airport is an Esso station located off the E90 on Via Aldo Moro. Note that there are many reports of customers being charged exorbitant prices at this station. However, it seems almost all stations close to the airport are similar in this respect. A good plan is to fill up further away and just plan to top off right before returning your hire car.
