Maggiore Rome Ciampino Airport

Rome Ciampino Airport is a very popular arrival point for local and international visitors coming to enjoy the attractions of Rome, the capital city of Italy. The airport is situated approximately 15 km from the centre of Rome, and serves over five million passengers per year. It is also well known as the Giovan Battista Pastine Airport, and has the official airport code of CIA. Rome Ciampino Airport is served by many low-cost airline companies, and is home to a variety of facilities for departing and arriving passengers, including a number of car hire companies, such as Maggiore. Maggiore is one of Italy’s leading car rental companies, and offer their customers a range of car rental services.

Maggiore, at Rome Ciampino Airport, is open seven days a week, between the hours of 08:00 and 21:30. Customers may hire a car directly from Maggiore’s rental counters, or in advance, from the company’s website at An advanced reservation is especially recommended if the customer requires a specific type or size of vehicle, or if items of additional equipment are required. Many of the car rental companies at Rome Ciampino Airport are located at some distance from the airport’s terminal building, on the road known as via Mameli. For this reason, a shuttle bus is available from the departures area for transport to the car hire offices. This service is provided free of charge, and the vehicles are usually equipped for disabled passengers as well.

Maggiore may provide additional equipment for disabled drivers, such as hand controls. Hand controls operate the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle, which has an automatic transmission, and are therefore ideal for individuals with a lower limb deficiency. From Maggiore Ciampino Airport, hand controls should be booked in advance, but are offered free of charge. Another useful option from this rental location is a one way hire. Especially for customers who will not be returning to the airport, a one way hire is when the vehicle can be returned to another Maggiore rental location, either within the city of Rome, or in another town or city of the country. Customers planning to travel across the borders of Italy should just confirm as to where the vehicles are allowed to be driven, and in which countries.

Maggiore requires their primary renters, as well as any additional drivers registered on the rental agreement, to be 21 years of age or older, and to have a major credit card in their own names. Additional drivers should always meet the same requirements as the primary renter. All drivers must show a valid drivers license at the rental counters when collecting the vehicle. In most cases, a local license issued within the European Union is accepted, but foreign renters may be required to show an International Driving Permit as well. An IDP is always a recommendation when driving in a foreign country. While younger drivers under the age of 25 are permitted to hire a car from many car categories, they may not be permitted to rent a car from categories that contain larger or specialty type vehicles, such as the Premium or Luxury categories. Younger drivers are also often charged a higher rental rate, as young drivers insurance is applicable to their rental quotes. This is a standard procedure followed by all major car hire companies.

At Maggiore, customers can choose from a wide range of vehicle categories, including those such as Small and Compact, Saloons, Station Wagons, Minivans and SUVs. There are even vehicles which have an automatic transmission, ideal for customers who are only familiar with this type of vehicle, or for those who simply find an automatic car to be more convenient to drive. Maggiore’s vehicles are fitted with a range of standard equipment in order to provide their customers with maximum safety and comfort. Some of the vehicle features include anti-locking braking systems, or ABS, airbags, air conditioning, power steering, central locking, electric front windows and CD players. Additional features such as cruise control and anti-theft systems may be available on certain makes and models.

Vehicles such as the Fiat 500 1.2 Lounge, Fiat Panda 1.2, Fiat Bravo 1.6 and Fiat Fiorino Qubo 1.3 are ideal smaller cars for city driving, and are a great option for those looking for lower rental rates and a car that is easy to drive. Customers renting a smaller car will also save money on fuel, as they are generally very fuel-efficient. The Smart For Two is another vehicle available from Maggiore, and as its name suggests, is ideal just for two. This little car is easy to drive on the busy and narrow streets of Rome, and fits perfectly into any parking space!  Families in need of a vehicle with plenty of space for luggage will find a variety of station wagons available. Some of the popular choices of these types of vehicles include the Volkswagen Passat Variant 2.0, Fiat Croma 1.9, Volkswagen Golf Variant 1.6 and Opel Astra Station Wagon. There is also the Mercedes C200 CDI SW available, which has an automatic transmission.

Passengers arriving at Maggiore Ciampino, in need of a larger vehicle will perhaps find the Minivan and SUV categories to be suitable, as they contain vehicles such as the Volvo XC60 Momentum, Fiat Ulysse 2.0, Renault Espace and Fiat Ducato 30 Panorama 2.3, which is a van seating up to nine passengers. Customers are advised to confirm all details regarding Maggiore’s rental terms and conditions at Rome Ciampino Airport before their departure.
