Auto Europe Car Rental at Milan Malpensa Airport
Milan Malpensa Airport is located 45 km from the city center of Milan. The airport consists of two terminal buildings, named Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, and all the car rental counters of the various car hire companies at the airport can be found in Terminal 1, on the first floor. This is actually a newly constructed building, while Terminal 2 is the original airport terminal.

Other car hire companies available at Malpensa Airport include Hertz, Avis, Alamo, Thrifty, Sixt, National, Easycar, Budget and Maggiore.
Similar to all other car hire companies, Auto Europa requires the primary renter to be at least 21 years of age. The primary renter should also have a valid drivers license which has been held in his/her country of residence for at least one year, and a major credit card under his/her name for payment of the rental. In most cases, a younger renter, between the ages of 21 and 25, will pay a higher rental rate than usual, in the form of a ‘Young Drivers Surcharge’, and this is rate paid per day of rental and per registered driver on the rental agreement, up until a maximum of ten days. Younger drivers are also often restricted from renting certain vehicles. These vehicles are usually of a specialty type or larger size. Foreign customers should always find out if they will be required to have an International Driving Permit along with their usual drivers license. Customers from the UK must bring both parts of their drivers license with them. The drivers licenses, and other relevant documents, such as a passport or I.D Card, will need to be shown at the rental counters when collecting the vehicle. Major credit cards usually accepted by car hire companies are American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard and Visa. It is not often the case when cash, checks or debit cards are allowed to be used as a payment method.
