Kerri Bullett Budget Cagliari Airport
“Good service just slow to collect car”

“Our plane was delayed so arrived a couple of hours late. We had rung ahead to warn them. We had a much bigger car than expected. But we had a long wait to pick it up, (about 50 minutes queuing) which was a shame as already late in the evening. Very quick to drop off back at the end of our holidays. Overall very satisfied.”

Cagliari Airport Guide

Car Hire

Cagliari Airport, Sardinia's main transport hub, is located just less than five miles from the city centre. Tourists landing at Sardinia's primary international gateway can arrange car hire on site to explore what is one of Europe's most idyllic islands in its entirety.

Who to Book With
Numerous car hire suppliers operate in the main terminal. Among them are: Sardinya Rent a Car, Eurorent, Easy Car, Autoeuropa, Pinna Rent a Car, Pintauro Rent a Car, Avis, Autonoleggio, Budget and Matta Rent a Car. The desks of these companies are easy to find in the airport's Arrivals area.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following paperwork at vehicle collection:

- Valid driver’s licence
- The credit card that was used to made the reservation
- Valid passport to confirm booker's ID
- Printed confirmation of booking

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
Due to limited public transport options on the island, driving is generally considered to be the best way to get around Sardinia. The island has no toll highways and roads such as the Strada Statale connect most towns and cities. Many roads wind through mountainous or hilly terrain, meaning that care should be exerted while driving inland. Drivers are encouraged to use their car horns on bends as a safety precaution. Local drivers who know the roads often travel at speeds which are in excess of the local limits. Finding a parking space in the centre of Cagliari is difficult.

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

Transport

The short distance between the airport and the city centre can be covered by car, bus or taxi, with self-drive the most popular choice outside of rush hours. Buses have a limited schedule and don’t run at night.

Trains
Cagliari Airport isn't on the island’s rail network, yet passengers can easily access Cagliari Station in the city for connections to Sassari in the northwest.

Taxis
Taxis can be caught 24 hours from the taxi rank outside Cagliari Airport's main terminal. They are reasonably priced but are more expensive than buses, with price increases between 22:00 and 06:00 and extra charges for luggage or more than three passengers. All taxis come with a meter but prices can sometimes be negotiated. One of the main operators is Cooperativa Radio Taxi.

Taxi prices:
Cagliari Airport to Cagliari city centre is about £15
Cagliari Airport to Sassari is about £250
Cagliari Airport to Costa Smeralda is about £400

Buses
Buses are the cheapest form of transport from the airport. Services depart every half an hour for the main train station in Cagliari and other popular locations. The first bus leaves at 05:20 and services usually terminate at 23:30. A typical one-way ticket to the centre costs around £0.50.

Facilities

Terminals
Cagliari Airport has one main terminal that is made up of three storeys. Arrivals can be found on the ground floor, whilst Departures are located on the first floor. Every year, around three million people use Cagliari Airport as an entry point for the isle of Sardinia.

Business Class Lounge

Cagliari Airport has one bank for those that require financial services. ATMs and bureaux de change booths are easy to find in Arrivals.

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. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by Carrentals.co.uk? at this location
