Sixt Car Rental at Forli Airport

Forli Airport, in northern Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, has the airport code of FRL and is also known as the Luigi Ridolfi Airport, in honour of a famous Italian aviator. The airport is quite small, with only around 350,000 passengers per annum, but is nonetheless an important gateway to the region. It is located approximately four kilometres southwest of the city of Forli, and nearby to the towns of Cesena and Faenza. Buses and taxis offer transport from the airport, but a rented car from one of the Forli Airport car hire companies such as Sixt is a much better option for travel. The car rental services of Sixt are excellent, and their reasonable rental rates are well known at a large number of airport locations around the world.

Forli Airport consists of one terminal building and one runway which handle all arrivals and departures of the two airline companies available, which are Wizz Air and Belle Air. Facilities available for passengers of Forli Airport include a few bars/cafés, newsagents, a duty-free store, internet connections, first aid services, cash machines and public telephones, and in the arrival hall, the Forli Airport car rental companies can be found. Sixt is open from 08:00 to 22:30 on weekdays and on Saturdays, but are closed on Sundays. However, twenty-four hour pick-up and delivery services may be available to customers who are arriving/departing at out-of-office hours. All details for this type of rental should be confirmed with Sixt.

At Sixt Forli Airport, the minimum age to rent a car is just 21, provided that a valid drivers license has been held for at least a year prior to the rental date. Customers under the age of 25 will, however, pay higher rental rates, for young drivers insurance. Most licenses issued in the European Union are accepted, but those which are printed in a non-Roman alphabet may need to be accompanied by an International Driving Permit. An IDP will serve as a translation of the local license, and is not considered as a license on it’s own. At some car hire companies, licenses from Greece are acceptable. In Italy, customers renting a car will often find that theft protection is a mandatory requirement, but collision damage waiver is optional, but recommended. Other types of insurance may also be available, including personal accident insurance. Third party liability insurance is most often included in the rental quote.

The smallest car available from Sixt at Forli Airport is the Smart For Two, ideal just for two as it’s name suggests, and other smaller models could be similar to the Fiat 500, Renault Twingo, Fiat Panda, Renault Clio, Citroen C3 and Chevrolet Aveo. Small cars are great choices for single drivers or couples, but may not be suitable for families with many luggage items to load. They also lack interior space. Their advantages, however, include a manual transmission which is easy to operate for persons with experience in driving manually, and they are comfortable for city driving. Most are also equipped with air conditioning and power steering. Family cars with more room include the Chevrolet Cruze, Renault Scenic, Citroen C3 Picasso STW and Renault Megane STW. The largest vehicle available is the Renault Trafic, with room for nine passengers.

Certain cars from Sixt include a satellite navigation system in their rentals, which is a wonderful piece of equipment to have with you if you are unfamiliar with the area of Forli. These cars are similar to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class T-Modell and the Chrysler 300 C. If your vehicle does not have a GPS included, one can be requested at the time of reservation. Child seats and luggage racks may by hired as well, and Sixt hand controls for disabled drivers are available for certain types of automatic vehicles. From Forli Airport, hand controls are offered free of charge by the various car hire companies, but will require an advanced reservation.

Sixt one way hires are convenient options for passengers leaving Italy from an airport other than Forli Airport. One way hires are also more convenient for persons who are travelling quite extensively, and who are perhaps even leaving the country of Italy. Confirm with Sixt if their vehicles are allowed as cross-border rentals, and to where they may be returned. Hire cars sometimes need to be returned to their home country.

Sixt Express customers (with a Sixt Express Card) have access to many benefits and services, and all of Sixt’s innovative ideas for quicker and more efficient reservations, rentals and returns. The card is available to frequent and occasional renters, and allows customers to use the Sixt Quick-Check-In terminals and bypass the rental counters, the Sixt Mobile-Check-In service and the Sixt Online-Check-In service, providing easy access to rental preferences online. More frequent renters enjoy greater benefits with the Sixt Gold Card and ladies can enjoy the same corporate rental rates as their partners with the Sixt Ladies Card.
