KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Rome

  • Explore the beauty of the Italian landscape with a rental car and discover everything Rome and its surrounding areas have to offer. The coastline is about 40 minutes away by car and the scenic Riserva Naturale della Marcigliana, located north of city, is also definitely worth a visit at just about half an hour away by car.
  • Get a rental car directly at the International Fiumicino Airport Rome upon your arrival to reach the center of Rome in about half an hour. Located in the Office Tower 2, the airport’s car rental center houses companies like Avis, Europcar, Hertz, and Sixt. Rome’s other airport, Ciampino, also offers car rentals and is 30 miles from the city center.
  • Rome operates ZTL – zona traffico limitato, which means limited traffic zones. The ZTL is in place to avoid congestion and pollution in major Italian cities during peak times. Be careful not to enter such a zone, as they are controlled with cameras and fines will be issued. Ask your rental car provider about details and familiarize yourself where you can go with your car (if you have a hotel in the center, you may be issued a pass to reach it). Also consider choosing a parking garage in the suburbs and use public transport to reach the city center.
  • Rome is a very old city and therefore the streets can be narrow and a challenge to navigate for someone who is used to broader streets. Vespas are common in the capital and known to whizz through alleys quickly, so drive attentively.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Rome for ₹ 3,376 or less
  • Book your rental car in Rome at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Rome are around 510% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Compact rental cars in Rome are around 90% cheaper than other car types, on average

Research and learn what the street signs mean. Prepare a mapping App in advance and set it up on cars system so to be hands free. Navigating, Driving, street signs with rules, motor bikes and bicycles cutting in front and pedestrians having the right away are all in play. Be prepared.
Eric J.Oct 2023
Avoid the Budget offices on via Sardegna. There are several rental offices in the Termini train station ... if you rent from there you can also try some less expensive local options (ideal for cases where you'll pick up and drop off in the same place).
BarbaraOct 2023
Rent from an agency on the outskirts on Rome. Don’t try to drive in the city.
HaroldoOct 2023
Best not to drive unless you’re familiar with the city.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Rent a small car, covertible if possible. Traffic is not so bad as people say, even parking is not hard to handle. But, renting a Vespa is much better…

If you have a couple of bags to take to the car, grab a trolley. It’s a long walk.

Typical of any other big city
Verified travelerMay 2023
Yes document any damage to your vehicle and before you leave the premises, go back to the office to make sure they are updated. Don't drive in Rome. It is less expensive to take a taxi then to navigate the streets and find parking.

FAQs about renting a car in Rome

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Rome?

    As the streets in Rome are very narrow and parking lots are hard to find, opt for a smaller car like a Mini or a Fiat 500. If you want to explore the surrounding countryside and park your car outside the city, an SUV is a good choice, as Italian country roads can have potholes.

  • What’s the speed limit in Rome?

    Speed limits, unless otherwise indicated, are 31 mph (50 kph) in residential areas, 68 mph (110 kph) on countryside highways and 80 mph (130 kph) on freeways. Always adhere to the speed limits as the Italian police are very strict with speed regulation and fines can be high. Speed cameras are also commonly used in Italy.

  • Where are the best places to park in Rome?

    Unless your hotel has a parking space included, it is not wise to attempt finding a parking space in the city, as they are hard to find and are often reserved for locals. Choose a P+R outside the center and close to a metro station, such as the P+R Batistini, P+R Valle Aurelio, or the P+R Laurentina. With only around €2 ($2.25) per 12 hours, they are also a priceworthy option. Parking lots close to the Old Town are also a possibility, but, with a rate of up to €40 ($45) per day, are a rather expensive solution.
