Top tips for hiring a car in Calabria

  • If you plan on visiting the toe of Italy, Calabria, in summer, then we strongly recommend getting some air conditioning in the hire car. Summer can get quite hot in this area, and you will need the air conditioning to stay cool as you travel. You may also want to add a GPS unit to help you get around, especially if you don’t speak any Italian to ask for directions. If you think that you may need some specialist chairs or ramps to help passengers get in and out of the vehicle, then you should get in touch with the hire company directly.
  • When choosing your pick-up and drop-off points, you may want to drop off the car somewhere different to where you picked it up. Most car hire companies are okay with this, but they will need you to specify your end destination, or they won’t allow you to do it. This can be a very convenient way to travel around Calabria, but you should be aware that some companies will charge more if the drop-off point is very far away from the original pick-up place.
  • In general, the road quality in Calabria is quite good, but you should expect narrow streets in the cities, as well as in some of the more rugged mountain paths. So, depending on where you go, you may want to choose a more compact car to help you zip around the city, or a slightly larger SUV or 4x4 to add some extra security to your trip.
  • If you choose to pick up a hire car before arriving, then you can reduce the waiting time to get to your accommodation once you have arrived in Calabria. Without having to wait for public transport, you can go straight to the hire car company and pick up the keys and get on the road. If you think that you will arrive later than expected, we encourage you to get in touch with the hire company to let them know to hold on to the car for you.
  • Book your rental car in Calabria at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What is driving like in Calabria?

    Driving in Calabria is much like driving in other parts of Italy. While there are plenty of areas of nature and long roads, you should expect driving in the city to be more chaotic than you are used to at home. We encourage you to follow the street signs to avoid breaking the law, even if you see the locals doing things that are not allowed. In the countryside, the drivers may be more relaxed, but don’t be surprised if the local drivers beep a lot and overtake you on narrow roads.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Calabria?

    While the legal driving age in Italy is set at 18, many car hire companies in Calabria will require you to be at least 21 years old when collecting the vehicle. They may also apply a surcharge to the total price if the named driver is younger than 25. You will need to provide an International Driver’s Permit if your driving licence is from outside the Eu or the EEA, and you should prepare this before arriving in Italy, if possible. There is a limit of 0.5g/l of alcohol in your blood when driving, and this is actually reduced to 0.00% if the driver has had their licence for less than 3 years or is a professional driver.
