Why rent a car in Bologna with Rentalcars.com?

At Rentalcars.com, we deal with car hire brands directly, bringing you the cheapest prices on car hire. Some of the companies we negotiate with in Bologna include Avis, Hertz, Sixt and Europcar, and you will find a great choice of cars on our site — from sporty convertibles to nifty compact cars. Whatever your car hire needs, we are here to make the rental process as simple and stress-free as possible. Just use the search form to tell us when you need a car, then use the filters next to the listings to find the vehicle best-suited to your needs.

Top Tips

  • Many historical centres of Italian cities have Limited Traffic Zones (ZTL) in order to reduce congestion and pollution. There are significant fines for driving into one of these zones unauthorised. A large area of the historical centre of Bologna is classed as a ZTL and motor vehicles are restricted from 7:00am to 8:00pm.
  • GPS systems do not know about ZTL zones, and they will suggest the shortest route which could lead you into one of these restricted areas.
  • Parking in Bologna can be a problem. If you are driving to Bologna, make sure that you know where the best places are to leave your car. Check if your hotel has any car parking facilities and if they charge for this, as it will save you the bother of driving around looking for a space when you arrive there.

Which companies offer best value in Bologna?

When you search for a car on our site, you will find some suppliers (such as Noleggiare and Locauto) have special offers on their cars — so you could get snow chains or an additional driver included in the rental price. But, we know there is more to good value than freebies; you also want to be sure you are renting with a trusted company. To help you make an informed choice, we show reviews and ratings from previous customers next to each listing — so you can see which companies offer the best rental experience overall.

Day trips from Bologna

The Lamborghini Museum: An absolute must-see for any supercar enthusiast, the Lamborghini Museum retraces the entire history of this iconic luxury sports car manufacturer. This incredible collection of cars, spread over two levels, spans several decades; from the first production model and a 1963 350GT through to the hyper-cars of today and concept cars of tomorrow. The museum is around a 45-minute drive from Bologna.

Modena: Located in the heart of the Emilia Romagna Region, the city of Modena can be reached in under an hour’s drive from Bologna. With architectural treasures including the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the cathedral, Piazza Grande and the Ghirlandina Tower, as well as two outstanding city museums (the Museo Civico Archeologico Etnologico and the Museo Civico d’Arte), Modena offers visitors a truly unforgettable cultural experience.

Ferrara: The medieval city of Ferrara can be reached in less than an hour’s drive from Bologna. Known as the city of the Renaissance, Ferrara became an intellectual and artistic centre that attracted the greatest minds of this era. Piero della Francesca, Jacopo Bellini and Andrea Mantegna decorated the palaces of House of Este, and the humanist concept of the ‘ideal city’ came to life here — and marked the birth of modern town planning.
