Dollar Car Rental Fiumicino Airport
Dollar Rome Fiumicino Airport
Rome Fiumicino is the larger of the two airports in Rome, and is located approximately 32 km, or 20 miles to the southwest of the city’s centre. This is also Italy’s largest airport, handling well over 30 million passengers per year, and is ranked as the 25th busiest airport in the world. Rome Fiumicino Airport is commonly referred to as the Leonardo da Vinci Airport, and has the official airport code of FCO. The airport consists of a number of terminal buildings, all of which are fully equipped for the needs of arriving and departing passengers, as well as disabled passengers. There are also numerous car rental companies available, such as Dollar Rent A Car. Dollar, at Rome Fiumicino Airport, offers their customers a selection of quality vehicles, and affordable rental rates.
Dollar’s rental counters at Rome Fiumicino Airport can be found in the domestic and international arrival halls of the airport. Passengers can simply follow the ‘Rent a Car’ signs after collecting their baggage. Although cars can be hired directly from Dollar, at such a busy airport it is recommended to make an advanced reservation, from Dollar’s website, at www.dollar.com. Customers who book early, or who book online, often receive a discounted rental rate, and have peace of mind in knowing their ideal car is ready for their arrival at the airport. An advanced reservation is especially recommended for those who may require a car that is not of such a popular size or model, or for customers who will need additional items of equipment for their journey in Rome.
Optional extras available from Dollar may include baby or booster seats, or even satellite navigation systems. A GPS unit is wonderful to have if you have never been to Rome before, or if you will be travelling to towns and cities in the nearby area. The systems offered are usually of the very best quality, and have features such as continuous road maps, turn-by-turn directions in voice or visual mode, colour touch screens and extensive lists of points of interest. They are also, in general, very user-friendly, and are simply to operate. In the country of Italy, and in Rome, occupants of a vehicle should always wear their seatbelts, and therefore parents of babies or young children will need a car seat for their little ones. Although they will cost a bit extra per day of rental, a car seat is essential for a safe journey.
Dollar may also offer hand controls for disabled drivers who suffer from a lower limb deficiency, and one way hires for customers who will not be returning their vehicle to Rome Fiumicino Airport. Although a one way hire may be more expensive, it is a more convenient option for those who do not plan to come back to the airport. At Fiumicino Airport, hand controls can be used free of charge, but should always be reserved in advance, at least 48 hours before your arrival at the airport. The device is used on certain types of automatic vehicles, and may also come with a steering wheel know for additional assistance.
Vehicles from Dollar are arranged into various categories, and are booked accordingly, rather than by their specific makes and models. Customers can determine the correct size of vehicle for their journey by the indicated passenger and luggage capacities listed for each car category on Dollar’s website. Additional information regarding the example vehicles is also available, such as whether it features a manual or automatic transmission, and if it comes with air conditioning. The best options for couples or small families who are not carrying too many luggage items are the Economy or Compact categories. Vehicles such as the Peugeot 1.7 and Nissan Micra are found in these categories, and seat between four and five passengers. Economy vehicles have two or four doors, and are considered to be very fuel efficient. An even smaller car is the Smart For Two, but this car has no space for luggage, and is only suitable for up to two passengers only. However, a nice choice for nipping around the very busy streets of Rome, and for squeezing into extra small parking spaces!
Families renting from Dollar often choose the Mid-size, Standard or Full-size categories, as they contain vehicles that seat up to five passengers, and offer good space for luggage as well. Example vehicles in these categories include the Peugeot 207, Lancia Delta and Alfa Romeo 159. Full-size vehicles may also come with an automatic transmission, such as the Mercedes-Benz C Class, while station wagons can be chosen from the Mid-size category as well. Estates have plenty of room for luggage, and may be similar to the Peugeot 407 SW.
