Fontanarossa (CTA)


95121 Catania CT, Italy

On Sicily’s east coast, Catania Fontanarossa Airport is the main gateway into Sicily and a prime location to start a road trip of discovery around the island. Thanks to low-cost airlines like easyJet and Ryanair, Catania Fontanarossa Airport has become a hub for many car hire companies.

Every year, the airport welcomes over six million passengers — many of whom come to in search of a cheap car hire deal and impartial advice.

Finding a great deal

We compare all car rental companies (including big names like Budget, Avis and Thrifty, and local suppliers such as Locauto and Maggiore) to bring you exclusive prices on car hire.

In Sicily and mainland Italy, most car hire companies use one of two policies, either a full-to-full fuel policy or a pre-purchase policy. A full-to-full policy is one we recommend if you don’t wish to purchase fuel upfront but don’t mind finding a petrol station to refill before returning it. If the car isn’t returned with a full tank of fuel you will be charged to refill it at a premium price.

A pre-purchase policy is recommended if you don’t mind paying upfront for fuel and don’t want the hassle of finding a petrol station close to the drop off location. In Italy, refunds are often given for any fuel left in the tank at the end of the rental.

To help you decide who to rent with, we ask each customer to provide feedback on their overall rental experience — so you get impartial, useful advice. You can see their ratings and reviews once you search for a car on our site. By booking with us, you can be sure you are getting the right car, at a great price, from a company you can trust.

Choice of cars

There are plenty of manual and automatic cars at Catania Fontanarossa Airport, from nifty mini and economy vehicles to family-sized estates. There are also convertible cars if you want to feel the wind in your hair as you cruise around the island!

Big groups will find plenty of room in the spacious 9-seater people carriers, which can generally hold four large bags.

People who want to drive in style may opt for a luxury car, like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class or similar.

Tips and advice

  • 1
    Catania Fontanarossa Airport is around 6km (just under 4 miles) south-west of the city centre, at the foot of Mount Etna. The drive can take 15-30 minutes, depending on traffic.
  • 2
    Some companies have their pick-up counter in the terminal, giving you the simplest possible start to your trip.
  • 3
    Driving out of the airport is simple — the area is well-signposted and the lanes are clearly marked.
  • 4
    If you are driving in Catania itself, be aware of one-way streets.
  • 5
    Make sure you book a car with air conditioning, particularly if you are visiting during the summer months.
  • 6
    Book well in advance, as popular cars are likely to sell out quickly.
