Italy has something for every holidaymaker whether you want to wander through the stunning countryside of Tuscany, relax on a sandy beach, drive through historic cities such as Rome and Florence or just marvel at the beautiful architecture that is common throughout Italy.

Our focus

We are all about value and unbeatable customer service here at Economy Car Hire. As such, not only do we offer a wide choice of vehicles, we also give you one additional driver free of charge.

Italian airports

No matter which Italian destination you’ve picked for your next trip, you can rest assured that Economy Car Hire is close by and ready to assist. We serve both the major airports and smaller travel hubs offering car rental at over 70 locations around Italy and its islands.

Fly into Venice Airport and you’ll find yourself perfectly placed to discover the romantic side of Italy. Besides the gorgeous canals, you’ll also see the Arena, an ancient Roman amphitheatre, and the house of Juliet, which includes the famous balcony that appeared in the beloved Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet.

Visiting the Eternal City? We serve Rome Fiumicino Airport and Rome Ciampino so you can make time for the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, St Peter's Basilica & Vatican City, the Spanish Steps, and the Roman Forum. What’s that? You want more? How about the Piazza Navona, Palantine Hill, Capitoline Hill, Villa Borghese, Castel Sant’Angelo, and the Altare della Patria?

Don’t forget that Perugia, home to the underground fortress of Rocca Paolina and Grosseto, with its huge number of eye-catching churches and central cathedral are both just a short drive away as well.

Fly into Bergamo Airport for Lakes Como and Iseo or to explore the less familiar city of Bergamo. The city is split between two levels – an upper level filled with monuments and historic buildings such as the Cappella Colleoni, and a lower level that is more modern and dynamic.

Think of Milan and chances are the cities two great football clubs, Inter Milan and AC Milan will spring to mind so why not visit the stunning San Siro Stadium. Or, if you’re a culture vulture, check out the stunning Milan Cathedral and wonderful Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Milan Malpensa Airport is a short drive from the San Siro if you’re here for the football. Alternatively, stay on the A8 into Milan for the other sites such as the two canals that snake their way through the city. We also work with suppliers at Milan Linate Airport if you’re arriving here.
