Busto Arsizio Guide


Twenty-Five kilometres north of Milan is the city of Busto Arsizio, located in the region of Lombardy (in the province of Varese). It is believed that the original inhabitants of the city were Ligurians, alternatively described as 'wild', 'hairy', 'unshaven', 'marauders' and 'robbers'. On the upside, they were good with iron and highly sought after as mercenary soldiers. The influence of the Ligurians can be seen in the dialect, Bustocco, which is a little different to other western Lombardy dialects in the area.

The inhabitants were well practiced at 'slash and burn' techniques, which gave rise to vast areas of open land for the planting of vineyards or cereals, or simply to build houses on. This created 'settlements', ('bustum', or burnt in Latin), and to distinguish it from other settlements, it was given another name - 'arsicium', which is Latin for 'burnt' or 'arid'. So the name is actually a tautology - burnt burnt, or Busto Arsizio.

The local patron saint, Saint John the Baptist, is celebrated on June 24th, as is an age-old festivity called the Giubiana. In the celebration, held on the last Thursday in January, a female puppet, a female witch, (each family making its own puppet) is burnt on a bonfire. The festival is twofold - it represents in ancient times, the passing of a matriarchal society to a patriarchal one, and also the destruction of the negativity of winter and the chasing of the winter troubles, and the coming of spring.

The name comes from Jupiter, and in Latin Thursday was the day of Jupiter (in Anglo-Saxon it was Thor) and on Thursday night witches assembled. Also, if the fire is a good one, the year will be good, too. The ashes are then sprinkled on the fields to generate good luck.

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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
