Sixt Bologna Airport

Bologna Airport has the official code of BLQ, and is also well known as Guglielmo Marconi Airport, or Aeroporto di Bologna, in Italian. Passengers will find a range of transportation options at the airport, including a good selection of car hire companies. Sixt Car Hire is a very popular choice for many, as they offer very competitive rental rates. Sixt is also well known for their innovative services which greatly facilitate rental and reservation processes.

Sixt Bologna Airport Car Hire is open from Monday to Saturday, between the hours of 09:00 and 13:00. They are open in the afternoons on these days from 16:00 to 20:00. Although Sixt is not open 24 hours a day, it is possible to return your rented car at any out of office hour. Customers can make enquiries for more details on this service should it be necessary for their rental. Sixt can be found in the arrivals area of Bologna Airport, which is located on the ground floor of the terminal building. Cars can be hired directly from the rental counters at the airport, or from Sixt’s website, at Advanced bookings are often recommended, especially if you are travelling during the most popular months for tourism. Sixt’s website has all the information you will need about their vehicle categories available at Bologna Airport, and their rental terms and conditions. All the car hire company vehicles are parked in the nearby area of P2 at Bologna Airport. This is the multi-storey car park at the airport, and the hire cars are found on Level 1.

Sixt Bologna Airport offers their customers a wide variety of vehicles, ranging from small to extra large. The Smart For Two is an example of a very small car, only able to seat two people, but it is a really good choice for driving on busy Italian roads, and its great for squeezing into small parking spaces!  It is not the best option if you have lots of luggage, as it really doesn’t have any space at all, besides maybe just for one or two small items. It is a manual vehicle with air conditioning. Alternative smaller vehicles from Sixt, but not as small as the Smart For Two, include the Fiat 500, Renault Twingo and Fiat Panda. Although these vehicles seat four people, families may still consider them to be too tiny, as they also don’t have much room for luggage.

More ideal family sized vehicles may include the Fiat Bravo, Renault Megane, Chevrolet Cruze and Renault Scenic. They comfortably seat four passengers, and have space for two large luggage items and a couple of smaller items as well. The Mercedes B-Class, Citroen C4 Picasso and Renault Laguna are also available for hire from Sixt.

Many customers like to have a satellite navigation system with them on their journey, for directions and other useful road information. Sixt, at Bologna Airport, therefore offers a couple of vehicles that include a GPS unit in their rental price. This is a wonderful option for customers who have never been to Italy’s Emilia region before. The GPS units are of very high quality, offering turn-by-turn directions, an easy-to-use interface, clear and accurate visuals, and many other features, as well as an extensive list of points of interest. Points of interest are useful for finding the nearest hotel, restaurant, pharmacy, gas station, tourist attraction etc. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which is an automatic vehicle, is one of the example vehicles at Sixt that come with a satellite navigation system, and so is the Chrysler 300 C, which is also an automatic vehicle. A station wagon with a GPS unit is the Mercedes-Benz C-Class T-Modell.

Sixt offers the right sized vehicles for all their customers’ needs, including extra large vehicles, such as the Renault Traffic, which is ideal for groups of travellers. This vehicle can seat up to nine people, and has a manual transmission and air conditioning.

Customers of Sixt with a Sixt Express Card enjoy a few excellent time and money saving options whenever they hire a vehicle from Sixt. The Sixt Express Card allows you to access the Sixt Quick-Check-In terminals, and completely bypass the rental counters. You can create your rental contract in just three easy steps – simply insert your Sixt Express Card or credit card into the terminal to access your reservation, choose your vehicle, and print your rental agreement.
