Trapani Airport is located halfway between the cities of Trapani and Marsala, and is the third busiest airport in the Sicily region of Italy. It is otherwise known as the Trapani-Birgi airport, as it lies next to Birgi Novo, or as the Vicenzo Florio Airport, in honour of a Sicilian wine industrialist and automobile enthusiast. The airport is part military and part civilian, and handles over a million passengers per annum. Facilities available for arriving passengers include car hire companies, such as Hertz Trapani Airport. Hertz is found at just about every Italian airport, and is a popular choice of car rental company.
At this rental location, Hertz is found on the ground floor of the Trapani Airport terminal, and in the arrival hall. They are currently open from 08:00 to 23:00, seven days a week, but from April 2012, will be open from 07:30 to 23:00, Monday to Sunday. Hertz is therefore a car rental company convenient for passengers on all arrival flights of Trapani Airport, and is known for providing vehicles of a high quality. All rented cars are regularly checked for safety, and are considered to be in good mechanical condition. Rented cars from the Trapani Airport car hire companies can be a popular form of transport, therefore it is recommended to make an advanced reservation. Various online websites provide the ideal way to secure a vehicle at the airport. In general, earlier bookings attract lower car rental rates as well.
From Hertz, car seats for babies, toddlers and young children can be hired, as well as the Hertz NeverLost In-Car Navigation System. In Italy, it is required by law for all passengers, at the back and front of the vehicle, to wear seatbelts, and children under four years of age travelling in a vehicle should have their own restraint system. It is therefore essential to book a child seat from Hertz, and ensure that you specify the age of your child, so that the correct size of seat is reserved for your rental. Although a satellite navigation system is not required by any law, it is a great asset to your journey. The Hertz GPS unit is manufactured by one of the most respected companies for satellite navigation technology, and will easily direct you to any destination. It features a colour touch screen with clear and accurate visuals, even in direct sunlight, and it’s easy-to-use interface can be displayed in various languages. The system comes pre-programmed with an extensive list of points of interest, which allows you to easily find the nearest gas station, hotel, tourist attraction, restaurant, medical facility, shopping centre etc.
Hertz hand controls for disabled drivers may be another piece of equipment available at their rental location of Trapani Airport. Hand controls, unlike all previously mentioned items, are hired free of charge, however, they will require an advanced reservation, because they are only available for certain types of automatic vehicles, and will need to be fitted to the vehicle. The device operates the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle, and is therefore ideal for use by persons with a lower limb disability.
The Trapani Airport car rental companies, including Hertz, require their primary renters and additional drivers to be at least 21 years of age, however, certain vehicle categories have higher age requirements, for example, 23 or 25. All drivers under the age of 25 will pay higher rental rates, as young drivers insurance will be included in the contract. This is a mandatory fee, applicable to each ‘underage’ driver listed on the rental agreement. Ensure that you have your drivers license with you when collecting the vehicle, and that a major credit card in your name is available for payment. The quote provided from Hertz may or may not include the costs of insurance, and depending on the length of your rental, fuel may need to be purchased. The car will have a full tank when it is collected, and should be returned with a full tank if fuel was not purchased. However, for longer rentals, fuel is usually purchased up front, in which case the vehicle can be returned as empty as possible. Make sure that you know which type of fuel to use in your hired car, as some have a diesel engine.
Hertz one way hires are a convenient option for customers who will be travelling more extensively, and who do not want to drive back to Trapani Airport. One way hires may also be referred to as the Hertz Rent-It-Here and Leave-It-There service, and depending on the return location and the length of the rental, may incur additional charges.
Hertz is perhaps one of the only car rental companies which offer vehicles that can be specifically booked by their makes and models. Usually, only vehicle categories can be reserved, and a customer will receive a car that is similar to the one shown as an example. Vehicles for more specific bookings are found in the Hertz Green, Fun and Prestige collections, and there are a number of small, large, fun, elegant and sporty models available. In the Green collection, the Fiat 500 1.2 Sport/Lounge, Nissan Note, Smart Passion 0.7 and Alfa Romeo Giulietta are all eco-friendly cars that are light on fuel, while in the Fun collection, some of the choices include the Infiniti EX, Peugeot 308 CC and the Volvo XC60 D5. Prestige vehicles are only of a Mercedes manufacture, and include the large Mercedes Viano, for eight passengers. Vehicles hired in a more ordinary way are found in the Standard car and estate categories, and may be similar to the Fiat Panda, Ford Fiesta, Ford Focus C-Max, Ford Mondeo Wagon and Ford Mondeo Ghia SW. There are also SUVs and Minivans available, such as the Ford Galaxy and the Ford Transit Combi 300S.
