One of the most popular car hire companies available at Cagliari Airport is Hertz. Hertz offers a wide range of quality vehicles, at affordable and competitive rental rates. Their rental counters can be found in the new building outside the terminal, right next to the multistory car parking area. The airport is often referred to as Elmas Airport, as it is situated in the area of Elmas, only 7 km from Cagliari, and on the island of Sardinia, Italy. The airport has a single terminal building which was upgraded in 2003, and has Arrivals on the ground floor and Departures on the first floor. Cagliari handles over three million passengers per year.
Hertz Cagliari Airport is open every day of the week, between the hours of 08:00 and midnight. Its location type is corporate, and it offers various services for passengers arriving at this airport. Customers can rent child safety seats from Hertz, as well as the Hertz NeverLost In-Car Navigation System, which is a great piece of equipment to have with you on your journey, especially if you are unfamiliar with the area in which you will be driving. This navigation system is manufactured by Magellan, a leader in satellite navigation technology, and is one of their most advanced on-board systems ever engineered. Some of the key features of the Hertz NeverLost system are a wide choice of languages, extensive mapping for 27 European countries, color touch-screen display, an ergonomic design with easy and comfortable touch controls, thousands of pre-programmed points of interest and even a database of all the Hertz return locations in Europe.

There are three car categories offered by Hertz, at Cagliari Airport, which allow the customer to choose a specific make and model of vehicle.

The Hertz Green Collection is a range of various sized vehicles which are deemed as environmentally friendly, and are also extremely fuel efficient. From this category, customers can choose the Smart Passion 0.7, Fiat 500 1.2 Sport or Lounge, Fiat Grande Punto 1.4, Mercedes A160 or the Lancia Delta 1.6.

One of the major credit cards must be used to pay for the rental, such as American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard and Visa.

We had so much luggage, what with the kids’ toys and my husband’s climbing gear! The rented SUV had space for everything and we had a fantastic time driving in the mountains.
