Dollar Rome Ciampino Airport

Rome Ciampino Airport is also commonly referred to as the Giovan Battista Pastine Airport, and is the smaller of the two airports serving Rome, Italy’s capital city, and one of the most popular cities in the country for tourism. Rome Ciampino Airport supports the larger Rome-Fiumicino Airport, and handles over five million passengers per year. The airport can be found approximately 15 km, or 9 miles to the southwest of central Rome, and is mainly served by low-cost and charter airline carriers. Dollars is one of the car rental companies available at Ciampino Airport, and are a well-known provider of car rental services. Dollar Rent A Car offers low prices for quality vehicles.

Although some of the Rome Ciampino Airport car hire companies are located at some distance from the terminal building, Dollar is within the arrivals area, and is open from 09:00 to 19:30, seven days a week. Customers hiring a vehicle from Dollar, at this rental location, will need to meet the minimum age requirement of 21, and be able to produce a valid drivers license upon collection of the vehicle. All additional drivers listed on the rental agreement must meet the same requirements as the primary renter, and should be present for collecting the vehicle. A local drivers license from the primary renter’s country of residence is most often accepted by Dollar, but there may be cases when an International driving Permit is required.

Younger Dollar customers, between the ages of 21 and 25, may need to pay a higher rental rate than usual, as young drivers insurance will be applicable to their rental. This is a small additional charge per day of rental, and per underage driver listed on the contract. Younger renters may also not be permitted to hire from certain vehicle categories. A major credit card in the name of the primary renter is required in order to pay for the period of hire, and it is the renter’s responsibility to arrange adequate insurance for the rented car. Various types of insurance can usually be purchased directly from the car hire company, and may include Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection. Third Party Liability Insurance is often included in the quoted rental price.

One way hires From Dollar Ciampino Airport are a popular choice for customers who want to return their vehicle to a different Dollar rental location, for whichever reason. Vehicles can be returned to other branches within Rome, or even to locations in another Italian city, however, this service does usually add an extra cost to the rental price. Optional equipment from Dollar may include child/baby seats or a satellite navigation system, and there may be hand controls available for disabled drivers with a lower limb deficiency. Hand controls operate the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle, and may include a steering wheel knob for easier manoeuvring of the vehicle. At Rome Ciampino Airport, hand controls should be booked at least 48 hours in advance of your arrival at the airport.

Dollar’s vehicle categories include Mini, Economy, Compact, Mid-size, Mid-size wagon and Full-size. The majority of the vehicles found in these categories come with a manual transmission, or stick-shift, but automatic vehicles can be hired from the Full-size category, such as the Mercedes-Benz C Class. Passengers who are more familiar with this type of vehicle are recommended to rent the same, as driving in a different city, or country, can be a daunting enough task on its own, without the need to ‘learn to drive’ all over again!  Dollar’s vehicles have features such as air conditioning, ABS brakes and air bags, and are frequently renewed, in order to ensure that their customers receive a car that is reliable and mechanically sound. Smaller vehicles are more economical, as they are light on fuel, and generally come with very good rental prices. From Dollar, they may be similar to the Smart For Two, Peugeot 107 or the Nissan Micra, found in the Compact category. The Smart For Two is a Mini vehicle, with room for just two, and no space for luggage.

Vehicles of an average size include the Peugeot 207 and Peugeot 407 SW in the Mid-size categories, and the Lancia Delta in the Standard category. These vehicles have room for five people, and space for a couple of luggage items as well. They are good cars for families, and will travel well for journeys of all distances.

Corporate clients in need of a vehicle for a longer period of time will find that Dollar’s Multi-Month Rental service is ideal. At Ciampino Airport, businesses, or individual corporate clients, can hire a vehicle for up to eleven months, without the need to even return it until the rental contract has expired. In order to arrange a longer rental, customers may call a special 800#, and then simply complete the rental agreement at the counter. Dollar will then automatically bill the rental charges to the customer’s credit card each month, or to the customer’s Dollar billing account, if applicable. Corporate clients and more frequent renters may also join the Dollar Express Service, and enjoy faster rentals, reservations and returns with faster counter service, and may even earn free rental days, with the Renter Rewards program.

All further details are available on Dollar’s website, at, or customers can contact Dollar directly, at Rome Ciampino Airport.
