Rome-fiumicino Guide

Car Hire

Rome Fiumicino’s official title is Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, with its complex located in Fiumicino, some 20 miles from the historic centre of the Eternal City. Its official name honours the fact that Leonardo designed a winged flying machine in the 16th century. Now in the 21st century, over 37 million passengers use the facility every year. It’s the sixth-busiest of Europe’s international air hubs and the main base for Italy’s flag carrier Alitalia. Car hire at Rome Fiumicino is straightforward, with a number of international providers represented on site.

Who to Book With
No less than 10 international and local car rental companies are represented at the airport, including Europcar, Avis, Hertz and Budget, with all depots located in Torre Offici 2, which is easily accessed by following the car rental signs in the Arrivals hall. The pick-up points are located in the Multi-Level Comfort Parking Building and, given the huge demand for rental cars here, the best way to ensure your preferred model at a good price is to book online through our comparator site well in advance.

Best Time to Go
Any time is, basically, a good time to visit Rome for its incredible history, artistic and architectural magnificence, and amazing shopping, dining and nightlife. The city is crowded all year round, but the high summer season and the Christian holidays see a massive influx of tourists and pilgrims. Accommodation and car hire charges at these times are expensive and the roads are busy.

Need to Know Essentials
When collecting your rental car, you should show the following documents:

- Your current UK/EU driver’s licence or an International Driving Permit
- Photo ID via your passport or other legal and valid photo identification
- Your credit card as used for the online booking
- A printed copy of the confirmed booking receipt

Driving in Rome could be considered an adventure by some and a nightmare by others due to the habits of the average Italian driver, narrow, crowded streets in the Old Rome district, pedestrianised areas and parking problems. Public transport is more than useful here but, to explore the rest of the glories of the region, self-drive is the best solution. The city lies at the heart of major roads fanning out all across the country, all following the original Roman roads and all in good condition.

More detailed information on driving in Italy is available here.


Although a hire car is the best means of touring the region, Rome itself has a plethora of public transport options, including the metro, overland commuter trains, trams, regular and hop-on/hop-off bus services, taxis and night buses. The ancient heart of the city and St Peter’s Square are best explored on foot or by taxi if you’re afraid of getting lost.

Rome’s Metro offers three lines, A, B and C, which cover most areas with major attractions, although stops are limited. Tickets are bought at stations, tobacconists, newsstands, ticket machines and coffee bars, and cost £0.85 for a 1 hour, 15 minute journey, including bus and tram travel. For full-day of travel, the same combined deal costs £3.40.

Bus routes across the city are provided by ATAC and COTRAL, both of which make use of dedicated bus lanes, although journeys are far slower than on the Metro due to traffic congestion. Both buses and trams can become crowded at peak travel times, and visitors should watch out for pickpockets. Tickets must be purchased before boarding, and the service runs between 05:30 and 24:00, when it’s replaced by night buses.

Taxis can be hired on the street, but visitors should only use the metered and licensed yellow or white cabs with a numbered shield shown on their sides and an official illuminated sign. Unmetered, unlicensed cabs are a menace, and proliferate at Rome’s airports and main train stations, as well as on the streets. Fares are reasonable, increasing after 22:00 and on Sundays and holidays.


While exploring ancient Rome is best done on foot or by Metro, self-drive on daytrips in the region gives the freedom to travel when and where you want, stopping off at a traditional rural taverna for a delicious meal. The countryside is packed with treasures, such as Etruscan Cerveteri and Vulci, the historic hill town of Frascati and Rome’s ancient harbour, Ostia Antica.

Recommended Drives

Frascati - The drive to Frascati takes around an hour, dependent on traffic in the city, and passes by the Via Latina Tombs before arriving at the historic hill town. Famed for its light white wine, Frascati is home to Castel Gandolfo, the Pope’s summer residence, and overlooks lovely Lake Albano.

Tivoli - To avoid Rome’s uglier, industrial suburbs, take Autostrada A24 (signposted L’Aquila) and turn off to Tivoli just after the main toll booths. The trip takes around an hour and ends in a memorable visit to the town’s two main attractions, the Villa d’Este and Hadrian’s Villa, the country estate of one of Ancient Rome’s best-known emperors. Villa d’Este is UNESCO-listed for its unique terraced water gardens.

Florence - For an unforgettable, if longer, daytrip, Florence is 3 hours away by car. Passing through the loveliest, forested corner of the Umbria region and the Tuscan hills, the A1 highway leads you to Orvieto, Arezzo and on to Florence itself, the magical centre of the Renaissance period.

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?

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).
