Pisa Airport is commonly referred to as Galileo Galilei Airport, after a famous Italian philosopher and physicist, or Pisa-San Giusto Airport, due to its location in the district of San Giusto. There are many car hire companies at this airport, including Alamo, whose rental counters can be found in the Car Rental Terminal. This terminal is reached by a shuttle bus that departs from the bus stop outside the Arrivals area.
Customers can hire a vehicle directly from Alamo’s rental counters at Pisa Airport, or in advance, from Alamo’s website at www.alamo.com. Online reservations are often preferred by many customers, as they are then ensured that their ideal vehicle selection will be available. It is also easy to reserve a vehicle online, simply fill in your details and requirements, and follow the instructions on the website. Alamo’s website provides all the details you will need in order to have a successful car rental experience, including all the car categories available at Pisa Airport. There are pictures of example vehicles in the different categories, as well as a general indication of the vehicles’ seating and luggage capacities, which can be used as a guideline for choosing the correct sized vehicle. When hiring a vehicle from Alamo, customers will select one of these vehicle categories, and not a car by its specific make and model, as all vehicles are priced, booked and controlled by car category.
Customers looking for a small and practical vehicle will find the Economy category from Alamo ideal. These cars are easy to drive on busy Italian streets, and easy to park in small spaces as well! They generally seat two adults and two children, making them ideal for couples or small families. However, they can only store one large and one small item of luggage, and a larger vehicle may therefore be required for longer road trips, or for customers who have a heavy luggage load. Example vehicles in the Economy category include the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2. Compact vehicles offered by Alamo, such as the Alfa 147 JTD M-Jet Progression 1.6, are similar to those in the Economy category, but can seat two adults and up to three children.
If you do require a vehicle with more space for luggage, one of the Wagon categories may provide the ideal solution. Estate vehicles generally always have good interior spaces. The Fiat Stilo SW Active 1.9 JTD 120cv is an example vehicle in the Compact Wagon category, storing two large and two small luggage items, and the Fiat Croma Dynamic MJT 1.9 is available in the Midsize Wagon category, seating two adults and three children, and storing two large luggage items. There is also the category of Fullsize Wagon, consisting of vehicles such as the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2, which can seat up to five adults, and store four large luggage items and two smaller luggage items. Other larger sized vehicles that can accommodate up to five people include the VW Nuova Passat Comfortline 1.9 in the Midsize category, the Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0 in the Midsize Specialty category, and the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2 in the Fullsize category.
Vehicles with more style and elegance can be hired from the Premium category at Alamo, Pisa Airport, and these may be the ideal choice for business passengers who need a vehicle which will create an excellent impression. They are certainly more luxurious than the ordinary rented vehicles, and are great for prestigious business events. Alamo offers the Mercedes E280 CDI Avangarde 2.8 as an example vehicle in this category. Alamo aims to cater for the needs of every traveler, and even offers larger sized cars which can accommodate up to seven or nine people. The perfect solution for friends traveling together, or large families who need plenty of interior space within their vehicle. The Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0 is an example in the Minivan category, while the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8 is available in the Van category.
