Trieste Airport Guide

Car Hire

Due to its position in the northeastern corner of Italy, Trieste Airport is not just the main gateway into the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, but an important access hub for Croatia and Slovenia. More than 880,000 passengers pass through the terminal’s modern gates yearly, most of who travel via Alitalia or low-cost airline Ryanair. The airport sits some 15 miles from Trieste, so visitors can opt for car hire at Trieste Airport to reach the city and other important destinations in the region.

Who to Book With
All car hire companies operating at the airport have their offices at the Arrivals hall. There are several globally-renowned agencies providing car hire here, including Hertz, Europcar, Sixt and Avis. However, Maggiore and Locauto, two Italian brands, also have car rental services at Trieste Airport. Prior to reaching the facility, tourists should make online reservations so that the ideal vehicle is ready and waiting for them upon arrival.

Need to Know Essentials
Passengers who want to rent a car must provide several essential documents first:

- An International Driving Permit
- Passport identification
- A valid credit card - preferably the card used at the time of booking
- Booking confirmation

Read our FAQs for more details.

Driving in the downtown area of Trieste is not recommended. Parking is limited, the streets are narrow and many of the thoroughfares are pedestrianised. However, car hire is a good option for daytrips outside the city of Trieste. Several major highways connect with the city, including the SS202 into Croatia and the E70 into Slovenia. Motorists should get the all-clear from the car hire firm before driving across international borders with a rental car.

See our Guide on Italy for more information on driving here.


Aside from car hire at Trieste Airport, there are numerous other transfer options that tourists can choose from. Buses and taxis provide connections to a list of nearby cities and towns, including Trieste, Udine and Gorizia. Despite the fact that trains link Trieste with a host of cities in Northern Italy, a rail connection is not available to the airport.

A coach service operated by APT Gorizia runs between the airport and several cities in the northeastern region of Italy. Routes to Trieste, Udine, Grado, Monfalcone and Gorizia only cost around £3. The journey into Trieste takes between 50 minutes to an hour. At the airport, coach tickets can be purchased from the tourist information counter in the Arrivals hall or from one of the automatic ticket-dispensing machines which are open 24 hours. Between Mondays and Fridays, it is possible to find tickets to the airport at one of the central coach stations in towns like Trieste.

Taxis may be faster and more convenient than coach services, but they are about 10 times the price. Cab ranks are located just outside the passenger terminal entrance. Taxis operate between 08:00 and midnight daily, and can be pre-booked online or over the phone. Consorzio Taxi is a reliable cab company that provides taxis outside the terminal entrance.


Trieste Airport only has one passenger terminal. Nevertheless, flights come in from both domestic and international destinations. The busiest carriers at the facility are Ryanair and Alitalia, with a significant increase in the number of low-cost passengers at the airport in recent years.

More than 1,100 parking spaces are available at the international airport. Spots cannot be booked in advance. All three paid on-site parking areas are uncovered. Parking Lot 1 provides spaces for long-term travellers. Parking Lot 2 is for both short-term and long-term visitors, and short-stay parking is set-aside for Parking Lot 3. P1 and P2 are both ‘pay-as-you-leave’ lots, while motorists pay as they enter the P3 lot.

A fast wireless internet service engulfs the terminal. In addition to this, there are pay-as-you-use internet corners in the terminal building.

Information Services
The tourist information desk in the Arrivals hall can offer assistance with regional information, hotel and transport bookings, and airport enquiries.

Trieste Airport boasts a plethora of services to assist passengers with reduced mobility, including specially-designated car parks, purpose-built restrooms, wheelchair access and hire, and frequent voice-over updates. Passengers still need to inform their airline of any reduced mobility concerns at the time of check-in.

Restaurants and Bars
The airport boasts plenty of vending machines that serve snacks and beverages. The Skyview Restaurant is the main dining option within the terminal.

VIP Lounges
There is a stunning airport lounge located close to boarding gates 8 and 9. Access is restricted to FVG Club members, Priority Pass members and Alitalia/AirOne members. However, it is possible to buy an entry ticket at check-in, which costs around £10.

Money and ATMs
A branch of local bank Cassa Di Risparmio Del FVG operates within the terminal. The ATMs outside the bank are open 24 hours.

Visitors can shop at the FreeFly Shop which sits beyond the security check-points of the terminal. Shoppers can pick up a range of products at reasonable prices here, including toys, perfumes and souvenirs.

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).
