Hard to find rental booth. Car great
Pros: Car was new, no problems with the car. Service was helpful.
Cons: Hard to find the booth for dollar. There was not a booth for dollar. Had to find out that dollar uses thrifty booth. And hertz, thrifty and dollar are the same company. The kayak website gives you an option to buy an insurance for the rental. That is not valid for the car. Wasted money. Had to buy extra insurance at the rental.

Charged extra
Pros: Good pickup, clean car, as expected until...
Cons: They charged is EUR 50 extra when we returned the car...apparently the guy at the drop off found a bit of dirt on the back seats...which probably came from our 6 and 4 year olds putting their shoes on the seat when climbing into the car. This was a real surprise to us, and too late for us to pass a quick hover on the seat. What a shame that they don't tell you in advance....will not go back to Hertz, never had this issue with Avis or Europcar!
7.6 Good

Wasn't sure what to expect...
Pros: The facility was clean. Charges were clearly explained. My questions were answered
Cons: There was no windshield washer fluid in the car. This should have been checked before I got the car. There was a long-ish wait to pick up my car.

Top tips for renting a car in Bologna

  • The beautiful city of Bologna has plenty to offer, from museums to the scenic Old Town and the breathtaking Italian landscape. With a rental car, you will have the great opportunity to explore every dream destination without having to rely on unpredictable and often delayed public transport or expensive cabs. Also bear in mind that the attractions in Bologna are spread out all over the city and, therefore, are most conveniently reached by car.
  • Head directly to the rental car agencies located at Bologna Airport to pick up a car upon arrival in the Italian city. The desks are located in the terminal at ground floor level and include international companies like Europcar, Hertz, or Sixt, plus multiple Italian agencies. Driving via the Tangenziale Nord di Bologna, travelers will be inside the city in about 20 minutes.
  • Italians have a reputation for driving rather aggressively and not adhering to street regulations, but by driving defensively and paying extra attention when entering the city, there should be no problems. Always adhere to the speed limits, as the police specifically like to fish out tourists and fines can be hefty. Turn signals are sparingly used in Italy; in roundabouts, drivers often do not signal when leaving it, but rather use their left blinker to indicate they are still staying inside, which can be confusing at first.
  • Bologna is among the cities which operate ZTL (zona traffico limitato), which means traffic is regulated in some areas and cars may not enter at specific times, usually between 7 am and 8 pm every day. There are traffic cameras in place that scan all cars, and entering a zone at the wrong time without a registered plate can lead to fines. Ask your hotel or rental car provider about the limited zones and make sure not to enter them.
  • Book your rental car in Bologna at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Bologna are around 93% cheaper than other car types, on average

What type of car is recommended for driving in Bologna?

Italian cities are very old and have many narrow lanes, which is why a compact car like a Fiat 500 is a good choice for cruising through the city when not so much space is needed. Such a small car will also require less gas, which is quite expensive in Europe, and will also fit into more parking spaces.

What's the speed limit in Bologna?

Speed limits are in km/h and must be adhered to at all times – even if other cars go faster. 50 km/h (31 mph) is allowed inside the city, unless otherwise indicated, and 90 km/h (56 mph) is allowed on rural roads (unless the road conditions are not good). On the highways, drivers can speed up to 130 km/h (80 mph) -- and remember to stay in the right lane, as the left one is used only for passing.

How are gas prices in Bologna?

Gas is quite pricey in Italy and the average liter of gas costs around €1.63 (or $1.86, which is $7.44 per gallon). Gas stations alongside the highway tend to be more expensive and stations inside the city often close at 10pm, so bear that in mind and refill ahead of time. Also note that usually you pay inside the station at the counter after the refill, and cards are widely accepted.

Where are the best places to park in Bologna?

Street parking in Bologna is possible around the historic center (which is a ZTL and only people with a permit can enter) and is metered by the hour. It is advised to either choose from parking lots close to the historic center or ones further outside of the city.
