Our car hire offices in Rome

  • Rome Termini train station:  If you are arriving in Rome by train, there are twelve car hire offices at the Rome Termini station, the main train station in Rome. The station has a very central location and the offices here all have a wide selection of rental cars. You’ll find all the offices right next to the train station. Getting out of the city from the train station and to Rome’s surrounding area is also very convenient with a car.
  • Central Rome: There are six car rental offices just south of Villa Borghese in central Rome. These offices all have a large number of rental cars. Despite the central location, getting to the major roads outside of Rome from these offices is smooth and easy. There are also a few car rental offices south of Villa Borghese, near Piazza Navona. These offices are close to both train stations and tube stations. Getting to the other parts of the city from here is easy.
  • West Rome: You can also pick up your rental car in the western parts of Rome, in the area around Vatican City. There are five offices within distance of Vatican City. They are located right by the SS1 road, which is one of the major roads in the area.
  • East Rome: There are two car rental offices on Via Tiburtina and Via Tiburtina Valera, east of the Rome Termini train station. These offices are relatively central, but they are close to the major road SR5, which leads out of Rome. A bit further east of the city centre, you’ll find three more offices by the A90 road, on Via Tiburtina and Via del Casale Cavallari.
  • South Rome: Car hire is also possible in the Ostiense area in the southern part of Rome. There are three car rental offices in the vicinity of the train stations Roma Ostiense and Porta S. Paolo.

Car hire at Rome Airport

The main international airport in Rome is the Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, also called the Rome Fiumicino Airport (airport code: FCO). This airport services most major airlines. However, if you are flying with a low-cost airline, you’ll probably land at the other international airport in Rome: Ciampino Airport (airport code: CIA).

All major car rental companies are represented at both airports. You’ll find their offices by following the signs from the Arrivals hall. At Ciampino Airport, you can also take the free shuttle bus to the airport entrance, where the offices are located.

Where to go around Rome

Rome is a city full of history and experiences. However, you might want to get away from the city buzz for a while and go somewhere more relaxing. There are many gems worth visiting in the area surrounding Rome, making it excellent for car trips. Below we’ll mention some of our favourite places.

Tivoli is one of the most historically interesting towns in the area around Rome. The city was founded during the classical era and has many exciting attractions. Two of the most famous places in Tivoli are Villa Adriana, which was the Roman Emperor’s residence in the 200’s, and the 16th century palace Villa d’Este. Both of these are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

National Park of Circeo
Slightly south of Rome is the National Park of Circeo, which is a perfect destination if you want to venture out into the wild. The Park is located near the coast, and has stunning views of the ocean. Here you’ll also find the town of San Felice Circeo.

Frascati is a small town south of Rome. The town is not only known for its many famous scientists and interesting historical buildings, but also for its white wine named after the town. The city is also home to many artists, and in the centre you’ll find many interesting art galleries.
