Alghero Guide

Car Hire

A warm climate, golden beaches and an historic town centre attract tourists to Alghero from all over Europe and beyond. About 44,000 people live in this Sardinian city, although this number tends to increase substantially during the summer months, as hordes of holidaymakers pack the town. Despite boasting a car-free medieval centre, Alghero and its surrounding region demands sightseeing and daytrips. Therefore, car rental in the city is well-worth exploring.

Who to Book With
Local car hire firms dominate the rental industry in Alghero. Companies like Autonoleggio Nolauto Alghero and Rent-a-Car Express are among the more reliable suppliers in the city centre. However, Hertz is one of the more renowned companies operating in downtown Alghero. Booking online is highly recommended if tourists are looking for the best quotes and deals.

Best time to go
Even though tourists can enjoy a sun-filled holiday at any time of the year, most flock to Alghero during the warmest months of the calendar, namely July and August. This does make the city and its beaches somewhat crowded though. For a cheaper holiday experience in Alghero, especially with rental bookings and room rates, visit between the quieter months of January and March.

Need to Know Essentials
Tourists will need to supply the following documents when renting a car in Alghero:

- A valid UK driving license or international driving license
- Another form of photo identification
- Booking confirmation document
- Credit card used for deposit

More information is available on our FAQ's page

Driving
It is not possible to drive in the very centre of the city, as vehicles are banned to preserve the historic quarter. Nevertheless, the roads outside the heart of Alghero are reasonably well maintained and safe for motorists. Be ready for heavy traffic in Alghero during the months of July and August. As you head away from the city, traffic tends to become less of an issue, but some of the roads can be winding and narrow. Motorists are advised to use their horn and drive with caution when travelling around blind curves and bends.

Peruse our guide to Italy for information on driving throughout the country.

Transport

Tourists can easily walk around the centre of Alghero and explore the city’s sites on foot. Nevertheless, there is a public transport system operating within Alghero. There is no intra-city train network in the town, but local buses make it possible for tourists to get around on wheels. Car hire is more commonly used for daytrips outside the city, but plenty of parking sites and smooth-flowing traffic make driving in Alghero relatively easy too.

Taxis
Taxis are available but tend to be sporadic in nature, even during the daytime. Tourists are recommended to phone ahead for taxi services. It is not uncommon to experience wait times of more than 45 minutes if cabs are not booked in advance. Radio Taxi Alghero is the primary company providing cab transport in the city.

Buses
The local bus network consists of five major routes, which connect passengers to the main districts around Alghero. Tickets can be purchased on board, but are more expensive than pre-purchased tickets. Commuters should visit a newsagent or tobacconist to buy passes before getting on the bus. Multiple-trip passes are cheaper than one-way tickets, so are certainly recommended for sightseeing tourists. A.R.S.T, a Sardinia-wide transport authority, operates the Alghero bus network.

Exploring

Despite Alghero’s breathtaking Old Town and fascinating culture, venturing to the many alluring highlights of the Sassari province is a popular pastime for all tourists to the city. With car hire, it is possible to reach sites like Neptune’s Grotto or the medieval town of Bosa. Visitors will be able to drive through some truly amazing coastal landscapes.

Recommended Drives

Neptune’s Grotto - One of Sardinia’s most alluring gems, this stalactite cave has been a popular tourist attraction since first being discovered by locals in the 18th century. Motorists can reach the cave from Alghero in a little more than 35 minutes. However, a 10-minute walk is required to get from the nearest parking lot to the entrance. Guided tours of Neptune’s Grotto are available.

Bosa - Situated on the SP105, the main coastal highway heading south from Alghero, tourists will experience more majestic medieval structures here, such as the Malaspina Castle. The drive from Alghero is a beautiful concoction of cliff-side views, crystal-blue water and luscious flora.

Nuraghe di Palmavera - Only a short distance from Alghero, and one of Sardinia’s best preserved nuraghe complexes, Nuraghe di Palmavera was built during the Nuragic Age, around 700 BC. There are also several other nuraghe remains located to the north of Alghero, near Sant’Imbenia and Anghelu Ruju. All can be reached by car on daytrips.

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).
