Alghero Airport

The best way to explore this part of Sardinia is by car, and therefore there are a number of car hire companies at the airport. Targarent is available, as well as Sixt, Avis, Budget, Hertz and National, just to name a few. Many customers choose Targarent for their low rental rates and wide range of quality vehicles.

Targarent Alghero Airport is one of the main car hire companies located at this airport. Their rental counters can be found in the arrivals area. The terminal building at the airport is easy to navigate, with departures in one area and arrivals in another. All the facilities are clearly signposted, and the terminal is very modern as well. Although passengers can hire a vehicle directly from Targarent’s rental counters, advanced bookings can also be made online, at www.targarent.it. This website contains information on the vehicles offered for hire by Targarent, as well as their rental terms and conditions. It is often recommended to rather make a booking as early as possible, especially during the busier summer months, when car hire is in high demand, in order to ensure your ideal car is available.

The rental counters at Targarent Alghero Airport are open every day of the week. From Monday to Saturday their services are from 09:00 to 12:00, and again in the afternoons from 17:00 to 21:00. On Sundays they are open from 09:00 to 11:00, and from 18:00 to 20:00.

When hiring a vehicle in Italy, and from Alghero Airport, the primary renter should be at least 21 years of age, and be in possession of a valid drivers license. The driver in his/her country of residence should have held the driver’s license for at least one year prior to the rental date. In some cases, an International Driving Permit may be required as well. At most car hire companies, a young driver fee is applicable for primary renters aged between 21 and 25. This is an extra fee per day of rental, and per underage driver listed on the rental contract, up until a maximum of ten rental days. Younger drivers are also sometimes not permitted to hire certain larger or specialty type vehicles.

The primary renter should have a major credit card in his/her name in order to pay for the rental. Car hire companies usually accept the cards of American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard / MasterCard and Visa. Sometimes they have their own cards which can be used by customers. Customers can purchase insurance for the rented car from their car hire company should their credit card company not provide sufficient coverage.   

Vehicles from Targarent Alghero all come with free unlimited mileage, and range between smaller vehicles such as the Fiat Panda and Fiat Grande Punto to larger vehicles more ideal for families, such as the Fiat Croma and Fiat Ulysse. Another smaller sized vehicle offered by Targarent is the Fiat 500. While these cars are great for city driving, they do lack a bit of space for luggage, and for this reason many families prefer a slightly larger vehicle. The Fiat Panda is considered to have a small luggage capacity, while the others have a medium sized capacity for luggage.

Larger vehicles ideal for families or business renters include the Fiat Bravo, Fiat Qubo and Lancia Delta. These vehicles all seat up to five passengers, and have reasonable interior space and a number of useful features. They also have room for a few luggage items, and are four or five door vehicles. There are two vehicle categories at Targarent that will require the primary renter to have two major credit cards in his/her name. These categories contain larger vehicles such as the Fiat Ulysse and the Fiat Ducato Panorama. The aforementioned vehicle seats up to seven passengers, and the second vehicle seats up to nine passengers.  These larger vehicles are often hired by groups of travelers who prefer to hire just one large vehicle, rather than two smaller cars. This is generally more cost effective as well. Both of these vehicles also have an extra large capacity for luggage.

Targarent Alghero Airport is part of a car hire company that was established in 1998, and today is present at most of the major Italian airports, and is found in many downtown locations in a variety of cities. Together with Budget Car Rental, which is a company also owned by Colle SpA, like Targarent, they have approximately 240 rental offices, and are one of the most widespread networks of rental offices in Italy.

Customers can contact Targarent, at their Alghero Airport rental location for more information about the vehicles for hire and their rental terms and conditions.
