Bologna Airport Guide

Car Hire

Bologna Airport, also known as Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport, is located around four miles northwest of the Italian city of Bologna. Situated in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, a simply stunning area, the airport is an ideal place to rent a vehicle. This practical option allows visitors to experience all the region has to offer, with driving from the airport to the surrounding areas easy.

Who to Book
There are 10 car rental companies represented within the airport. International companies, such as Avis, Europcar and Hetrz, have representatives, along with local outfits Autovia, Budget Autonoleggio, Sixt and Locauto rent. All offer a range of vehicles that can be booked in advance or on the day of arrival.

Need to Know Essentials
In order to collect a reserved vehicle, you must provide the following documentation:

- A valid driver’s licence (both parts)
- The credit card used when making the reservation
- A valid passport
- Proof of address, such as a utility bill
- The booking confirmation email or number

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
Driving in the cities can be confusing due to the many one-way systems. Traffic is also an issue and can add to the journey time. Outside of the cities, a road atlas will come in handy as the country roads tend to be poorly signposted. Toll roads are common and well maintained; however, they usually only take cash so carry change with you on long journeys. Petrol stations are common but not all accept foreign cards so carry cash for refuelling.

See our guide to Italy for more information on driving here.

Transport

There is no train station at Bologna Airport; however, there are a number of bus routes linking the airport with surrounding areas. These routes do not operate frequently or through the night. Car hire allows visitors to head directly to their destination as the airport is situated near a number of main motorways. Other than this, a taxi is the only option, which can be costly.

Taxis
The taxi rank is located directly outside the International Terminal, with a second rank outside the Domestic Terminal. Taxis can be booked in advance by calling: +39 51 372727.

Taxi prices:
Bologna Airport to Bologna city centre is about £10
Bologna Airport to Modena is about £50
Bologna Airport to Ferrara is about £60
Bologna Airport to St Florence is about £150

Buses
There are a number of bus services to surrounding areas. A shuttle service runs from the airport to the nearest train station. This service takes around 20 minutes. Direct buses are scheduled every two hours. Journey time to Ferrera is around 1 hour, while the trip to Florence takes around 1 hour, 30 minutes. For services to Bologna, visit www.autostazionebo.it for timetables. Operators include ATCM, Appennino Shuttle and Bus and Fly, with a standard one-way single ticket costing around £3.50.

Facilities

Terminals
There are two terminals at Bologna Airport: one small domestic terminal along with a larger international terminal. The airport now handles over five million passengers a year and as a result, it has become the seventh-busiest airport in Italy. Air France, Air Italy and Ryanair all charter flights here from a number of destinations in mainland Europe and the UK.

Parking
Express parking on the first floor offers short-stay parking. This lot is ideal for dropping passengers off; however, there are also three more car parks: P1, P2 and P3. These lots are all located a short walk from the airport. Prices vary but start at £15 for three days (including a weekend). Car parking can be booked in advanced, paid for on arrival or on return. All car parks have cash and card facilities for easy payment.

Frequently asked questions

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.
