Merano Guide

When steering your car hire into Merano (Meran) through its 13th century gates you will be seeing what little is left of its original city walls. This is part of the ancient region of Alto Adige, which is suspected to be one of the most populated with fortified buildings of old. One of the best known and preserved fortifications is the Castello Principesco. There are several fortified homes throughout the town, and it is also home to the 1850's castle of Trauttsmansdorf, which is surrounded by breathtaking botanical gardens and houses the local Museum of Tourism.

Fortifications are not this town's only attraction. It lays claim to one of the best handball teams in all of Italy. Merano is touted as the ""City of Flowers"" for the beautiful flora encouraged by its mild climate. In the 1930s, the waters of Merano were found to have special healing properties, which quickly turned this town into a spa resort. Sitting at the foot of the Alps you could imagine that it is also quite a ski resort and hikers retreat. To travel to this particular town you may want to take the train in from Venice or Milan, or you can find a reliable car hire service to let you a vehicle for the two hour drive from Switzerland or Austria through the Alps.

In November, Merano is the site of the International Wine Festival which showcases vintages from all over the world. You would do well to take a car hire in for this event, as the wines from this region are renowned, as is the freshness of the food. It also found itself earning the honour or having a chess move named after it in 1981, when it hosted the World Chess Championship of Karpov vs. Korchnoi. After you have extended your vacation through this ancient village, go to the foot of the Alps and take in some hearty food and skiing.

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).
