Auto Europa Car Rental at Brescia Airport

Brescia Airport is a small Italian airport located approximately 20 km from the city of Brescia, in the Lombardy region. Although it only handles 200,000 passengers per year, it is a well-equipped airport with all the necessary facilities required by arriving and departing passengers. Besides catching the bus or taxi at Brescia Airport, passengers can also hire a car from one of the quality car rental companies in the arrivals hall. Auto Europa is one of these companies, and they have a wide range of vehicles. Many passengers arriving at the airports also like to rent a car from Auto Europa because of their reasonable rental prices.

Auto Europa Brescia Airport, is open every day of the week, between the hours of 09:30 and 11:50, and then again from 15:00 to 17:50. They are not open all day because there are not that many flights at Brescia Airport. The main flights in operation are by Ryanair, to and from destinations such as London-Stansted and Cagliari. Although cars are available for hire directly from Auto Europa’s rental counters at the airport, customers can also hire a vehicle in advance of their trip to Brescia, from Auto Europa’s website, All the information you need is on this website, including the vehicle categories available and the vehicles within the various categories. There are also details for each vehicle, such as passenger and luggage capacity, and whether the car has a manual or automatic transmission. Booking online has become the preferred way by many to secure their ideal rented car.

Similar to most other car hire companies in Italy, Auto Europa, at their Brescia Airport location, requires the primary renter to be at least 21 years of age, and to have held a valid drivers license for at least one year in his/her country of residence prior to the rental date. Foreign drivers may also be required to have an International Driving Permit, especially if their local license is written in a non-Roman alphabet. Most often it is recommended to have an IDP regardless of whether you need it for hiring a vehicle. ‘Underage’ drivers as defined by a car rental company are those individuals 25 years or younger, i.e. drivers between the ages of 21 and 25. Renters in this age group usually pay a higher rental rate than usual, in the form of a ‘young drivers fee’, which is an extra daily charge per underage driver, registered on the rental contract. The extra fee is not usually charged for more than ten rental days. Younger drivers may also not be permitted to hire from certain vehicle categories. A major credit card is required in order to pay for the rental, and the card should be in the name of the primary renter.  

In most cases, customers can hire extra items of equipment needed for their journey. These items may include a child safety seat or a satellite navigation system. Both items, although they do cost extra, can greatly contribute to a safer and happier journey though unknown territory!
