Treviso Airport is found in the Veneto region of Italy, and serves the city of Treviso, as well as Venice. The airport is located approximately 3km, or 1.8 miles from Treviso, and 20km, or 12 miles from Venice. It is also known as the Treviso-Sant’Angelo Airport, and has the official airport code of TSF. Buses run from the airport to various locations, and taxis are almost always available, however, many passengers prefer to rent a car from one of the Treviso Airport car hire companies.

Budget also provides vehicles of only the highest quality.
The company of Budget Treviso Airport have their car rental counters within the single terminal building of the airport, and in the arrival hall. The airport’s terminal building was recently re-developed, and is now known as the Canova building, in remembrance of Antonio Canova, a famous Italian artist. It is a well equipped terminal, with facilities such as ATMs, shops and restaurants, ticket offices for the sale of airline tickets, lost luggage offices and car rental companies. Budget’s vehicles are also parked nearby, within easy walking distance of the terminal, in an airport car park. Customers will therefore require no additional shuttle services from the airport in order to reach their hire car. At this rental location, Budget’s hours of operation are from 09:00 to 13:00, and from 15:00 to 18:00 on weekdays, and from 09:00 to 14:00 on Saturdays.
