KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in La Spezia

  • Booking car hire in La Spezia is a wise way to take your Italian holiday into your own hands. Explore the port-side city at your own pace, packing in as many activities and stops as you like. You can get so many things done if you avoid waiting for public transport. Centro Storico, Porto Mirabello, Naval Technical Museum, a leisurely drive through Cinque Terre and the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta can be just day one of your holiday itinerary.
  • A nearby airport to La Spezia is Pisa Airport (PSA), about 64 km away. Collecting your car hire in La Spezia directly from the airport is an easy way to get your holiday started without delays. You'll need to leave the main building and head past P5 until you reach P6. It is possible to get there on foot, which will take about 10 minutes, but there is a free airport shuttle that will take you right to the car hire company doors. The shuttle leaves every 10 minutes or so.
  • When you leave the city centre in your car hire in La Spezia, you'll be travelling through rocky cliffs and past scenic coves on narrow winding roads that often reach heights not for the faint-hearted. You should drive slowly. You'll face roads that are not big enough for two cars to drive adjacent to each other, and so you might need to hang back and pull to the side of the road to let an oncoming car pass. Another thing you'll notice when driving in this breathtaking landscape is that the roads are often not barricaded and have sheer drops on one side, so be aware.
  • You'll want to avoid driving during peak tourist times. The busier months are generally May, June, September and October, or during public holidays or special celebration days like Italian Liberation Day and Easter. When driving in the city, you'll find there is the chance of traffic jams roughly from 09:00 till 10:00 in the morning and again in the late evening from 19:00 till 20:00. When driving your car hire in La Spezia, watch out for pedestrians. There is a strong culture of enjoying the city on foot, and people walk the city all day and night.
  • Book your rental car in La Spezia at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in La Spezia are around 50% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in La Spezia?

    You'll be most happy with a small, compact or economy car when considering which is the best car for driving comfortably in La Spezia. A smaller car means a smaller fuel tank. The price of fuel in Italy is pretty high, so booking a car that is lighter on fuel means a car that is lighter in your pocket. You'll find smaller cars will be easier to manoeuvre once you leave the city centre, and parking in the city is also easier in a car that needs less space.

  • What’s the speed limit in La Spezia?

    The speed limits in La Spezia are similar to other cities in Italy. The speed limits to follow are 50 km/h when driving on most streets in the city centre. You'll be driving no faster than 90 km/h on single carriageways and 110 km/h on dual carriageways. When driving your cheap La Spezia car hire on motorways, the limit is 130 km/h. When it rains in La Spezia, you are expected to drive at least 10 km/h slower than the usual speed limit on that particular road; this is not a major concern, as it doesn't rain a lot.

  • Where are the best places to park in La Spezia?

    Street parking in the city can sometimes be tricky to find, so it might be easier to head to a car park. You'll find there are around three major car parks in the city. One of them will charge you for your stay, while the other two are free. Generally, in summer, the free areas fill up pretty quickly. If you can't find parking in one of these, head to the train station in the centre of town. Here you'll find a car park that is open 24 hours a day. You'll be allowed to park here for 2 hours at a time.

The process was relatively smooth, although we needed details about how and where to return the vehicle at the Rome airport and the representative had none. However, once we got there and found Hertz, it was quick and easy. The car was immaculate and drove great. (Fiat 500X)

The issue I ran into was that I didn’t take comprehensive photos of every inch of the car, so when I got to Venice they charged me 180 EUR for the drivers side keyhole which they said had been tampered with. It was complete BS. The woman at the Venice airport counts on the fact that you’re in a hurry and even says “oh I don’t know if they’ll charge you” and then shows you the auto printed receipt to say they didn’t charge, but then you get an email a few hours later for damages you didn’t sign off on. Absolute SCAM

Car battery died in the middle of our trip. We lost valuable time exploring on our trip due to this and would like some compensation for the inconvenience.

Attendant demanded a US passport in order to use the reservation, which I don't carry because I'm an Italian resident. And she wouldn't accept my Italian driver's license, requiring me to make a new reservation for over $100 more. And the check engine light illuminated after picking up the car, making us wonder if it would break down. When we reported the problem to Dollar, they said "call us when the car breaks down". Very poor service.
