Elmas (CAG)


09030 Elmas CA, Italy

Serving the island of Sardinia, Cagliari Airport is one of Italy’s most popular car hire pick-up locations — with many people hiring a car to explore the island’s stunning natural beauty and fascinating historic sites.

The airport is around 7km (4.5 miles) north-west of the ancient city centre of Cagliari, and handles over four million passengers each year; at, we help holidaymakers from all over the world find cheap car hire deals at Cagliari Airport.

Finding the best deal

Our team compare all the big car hire companies (including Thrifty, Hertz, Avis, and Europcar), as well as local firms like Noleggiare, Locauto and Sicily By Car, to bring you exclusive car hire deals. You will often see cars with an additional driver, a GPS or Collision Damage Waiver with zero excess included in the price.

To give you peace of mind that you’re hiring from a trusted company, we ask customers to rate and review their overall rental experience — giving you honest, impartial advice which you can read before you commit to anything.

In Sardinia and mainland Italy, most car hire companies use one of two fuel policies: the full-to-full fuel policy, or a pre-purchase policy where you are refunded for any fuel left in the tank once the rental is over.

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 the end of the rental. If the car isn’t dropped off with a full tank of fuel you will be charged to refill it at a premium price.

A pre-purchase policy (with refund) 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.

Choice of cars

No matter what kind of vehicle you are looking for, the perfect hire car is waiting for you. The easy-to-park mini, economy and compact cars are ideal for single travellers and couples who want something nifty to get them around the island — while families should probably look towards the standard, estate and full-size cars, which offer more space. There are also premium, luxury and convertible vehicles for people who want to drive around Sardinia in style.

You can filter the cars when you search, so you can organise the results based on the supplier, counter location, rating, size, fuel policy and specifications (such as cars with air conditioning or automatic transmission). We do everything we can to make booking your hire car simple and stress-free.
