Trapani Airport is located approximately mid-way between the cities of Trapani and Marsala, and is found in the Sicily region of Italy. It is the third largest airport of Sicily, and handles over 1.5 million passengers per annum. Many also refer to the airport as the Vicenzo Florio Airport, or even as the Trapani-Birgi Airport, due to it’s location nearby the area of Birgi Novo. It is recognised by it’s IATA code of TPS. Although buses and taxis are readily available, car hire is popular, from companies such as Alamo Trapani Airport. Low car rental rates are offered by this company, and Alamo is well known around the world for their friendly customer service.
The Trapani Airport car rental companies are located in the arrival hall on the ground floor of the airport terminal. This building has recently been renovated and extended, and the departure facilities moved to the first floor. The car parking facilities of the airport were also extended. This means that Trapani Airport is more than adequately sized to handle the number of passengers which pass through it on a yearly basis, and is a very efficient airport facility. It’s main airline company is Ryanair, and many destinations are served by this popular low-cost carrier. Passengers will enter the terminal on the ground floor once disembarking from the airplane, and will easily locate the car hire companies. Alamo Car Rental is open at Trapani Airport every day of the week, from 08:00 to 22:30. Their rented cars are also parked nearby, and are within easy walking distance of all airport facilities.
Alamo is well known around the world for their vehicles which are suitable for families and leisure car renters. They have over thirty years of experience in the car rental industry, and offer competitive rental rates at all their airport locations. Over their years of service, Alamo introduced the concept of free unlimited mileage, and was the first car rental company to offer real-time booking capabilities on the internet. Online is by far the most convenient way to hire a car, and advanced reservations are recommended for the rental location of Trapani Airport. An early booking will result in achieving the lowest rental rates, and will ensure peace of mind in knowing your ideal car is ready and waiting for your arrival at the airport. It is best to book additional items of equipment required in advance as well, for example, child seats and satellite navigation systems.
Trapani Airport welcomes disabled travellers, by offering a terminal building which is completely accessible and equipped with suitable toilet facilities and other useful aspects. The Trapani Airport car hire companies also offer various services for customers with reduced mobility challenges, and from Alamo, hand controls for certain automatic vehicles may be available. Hand controls are a device which operate the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle, but not any other vehicle functions, such as the blinkers, windshield wipers or lights. The device may also include a steering wheel knob. From the rental location of Trapani Airport, hand controls will need to be requested at least forty-eight hours in advance of your arrival, and are free of charge. A person unable to drive due to disability may still be the primary renter of an Alamo vehicle, provided they are accompanied by a person with a valid drivers license.
All cars from Alamo are booked and controlled by car category, and not by car make and model. The vehicles shown as examples in each category are therefore similar to the car you may be driving, not necessarily the same. The passenger and luggage capacities indicated should therefore only be used as a general guideline. Alamo’s Economy vehicles are similar to the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and the Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2, with room for five passengers and two or three luggage items. They have a manual transmission and air conditioning. The VW Nuovo Passat Comfortline 1.9 is an example of a vehicle in the Midsize category, and Fullsize vehicles are similar to the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2 and the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2. Fullsize vehicles could have an automatic transmission, which is preferable for some renters. Premium cars are also automatic, and include the Mercedes E280 CDI Avangarde 2.8.
Groups of travellers often require an even larger vehicle, one with space for more than five passengers. For this reason, Alamo ensures that they are able to hire a range of Minivans and Vans, for example, the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0 for seven passengers and the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8 with room for nine passengers. Both vehicles come with ABS brakes, a manual transmission and have room for three luggage items.
Alamo one way hires are available from Trapani Airport. One way hire services are ideal for anyone who is not leaving on a departure flight from Trapani Airport, as it allows the hire car to be delivered to a different rental location. Alamo is present at the majority of Italian airports, and may also have locations at railway stations and in the centres of towns and cities. A one way hire may require an advanced reservation, and may be a bit more expensive than an ordinary rental. In general, the primary renter at Alamo should be at least 21 years of age, with a driving license that proves he/she has been driving for a minimum period of one year prior to the rental date. A major credit card is also required.
