Bari Palese Airport Guide

Car Hire

Bari Airport serves the capital of the beautiful Apulia region of Italy, Bari. It is located five miles from the city centre and is sufficiently integrated into Italy's great network of highways. Highway A14, which runs north to south along the Adriatic coast, is easily accessible from Bari Airport, giving those with car rental the option to explore not just Bari, but the beautiful countryside of Apulia. Otherwise, Highway SP73, which runs straight to Bari city centre, can be accessed easily on exiting the airport. Bari Airport is known by two other names: Karol Wojtyla Airport and Palese Airport.

Who to Book With
There are a number of international and local car rental brands with offices at Bari Airport. They are: Hertz Autonoleggio, Avis Autonoleggio, Europcar Italia, Sixt Rent A Car, Maggiore Rent, Locauto, Rent and Services SRL, Zodiac Italia and Auto Europa Sicily by Car. The offices of these companies are located in the Arrivals area. Hire cars are retrieved from the dedicated rental car parking area.

Need to Know Essentials
Presentation of the following documents is necessary at vehicle collection:

- Driver's licence (if it is an old-style green paper licence, an International Driving Permit should accompany it)
- Credit card
- Proof of identification (such as a passport or national ID card)

For more info read our FAQ's.

A warning triangle and a reflective jacket must be available in the vehicle. Petrol stations have credit card facilities, but visitors are advised to clear the use of their card in Italy with their local card supplier before travel. Dipped headlights should be used when visibility is low outside urban areas. Speeding is heavily fined in Italy. In built-up areas, the speed limit is 31mph and on motorways, it is 80mph. All persons inside the vehicle must wear a seatbelt. The majority of motorways have tolls.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
