Customer questions about Sicily car hire

I've just made a booking for a car, the pick up location it says just c/o Stazione Marittima, Trapani. What is the exact address of my pick up location? or I should just wait for another confirmation email?

Hi, the address would have been stated at the quote stage, however it's not a problem if you missed that, it will be confirmed on your booking confirmation email / voucher that should arrive shortly, please check junk folders also as some e-mail platforms will filter them. Any issues whatsoever, please get back in touch with us and we'll confirm.

I have one question, can I book here at your site while I am not a driver?

Hi, yes you can book the car by all means but the detail you provide must be that of the driver of the car.

Sicily Mini Guide

If the country of Italy is shaped like a boot then the island of Sicily would be the football it is kicking. This is a wonderful place to go on walking or cycling tours. You can even take out a yacht for the day to see what island clusters such as the Aeolian and the Pelagie have to offer. Sicily is one of Italy’s 20 regions and it is an incredibly varied island which has mountains and beaches as well as other islands surrounding it.

Although Sicily is considered part of Italy it has a language all of its own -Sicilian. This dialect is made up of Italian, Roman and French among other influences and reflects the diverse history of Sicily, as the island had been settled by the Greeks, the Romans and the Spanish, to name but a few, over various points in time. These settlements have left their marks, making Sicily a fascinating place to visit if you are interested in archaeology. Don’t miss the Syracuse national park with its incredible Roman amphitheatre, or Kamarina, the ancient Greek city which was built almost 600 years before Christ was born. Sicilian cuisine is very special too; try the freshly caught fish dishes.

Visitors to Sicily will also certainly want to make the journey to see the incredible active volcano of Mount Etna where active lava flows. But Mount Etna at 3323 metres is not even the highest peak on Sicily – that accolade goes to Mount Lauro. All of our hire cars in Sicily comes with air conditioning which is a relief as the island gets very hot in the summer. Alternatively plan your trip for autumn or spring when the island is beautiful and the climate is a bit more manageable.
