KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Parma

  • Car hire in Parma offers numerous advantages for exploring the city and its surroundings. Visit attractions at your own pace and convenience. Easily explore the historical centre of Parma, visit the Parma Cathedral, and discover Castello di Torrechiara, a castle just a short drive away. Venture into the picturesque countryside of the Emilia-Romagna region to explore vineyards, taste local delicacies, and visit villages like Langhirano. Car hire in Parma gives you the flexibility to make the most of your trip.
  • If you're looking to get Parma car hire at the airport, you'll find car hire offices conveniently located in the Arrivals area of the main terminal at Parma Airport (PMF). Upon arrival, follow the signs to the car hire desks, where you can complete the necessary paperwork and collect your vehicle. It's recommended to make a reservation in advance to ensure availability. There's no dedicated airport shuttle to the car hire offices, but they're easily accessible within the terminal.
  • When driving in Parma, it's important to be mindful of the local traffic rules and road etiquette. Keep an eye out for pedestrians, especially in busy areas and near crosswalks. Some areas of the city may have narrow streets, so it's advisable to drive cautiously and be aware of oncoming traffic. Pay attention to street signs and follow parking regulations to avoid any fines. Additionally, be prepared for the occasional roundabout, where you should yield to vehicles already inside.
  • Rush hour in Parma can bring increased traffic congestion, especially on weekdays between 07:30 and 09:00 and 17:30 and 19:00. During these times, major roads such as Via Emilia and Viale Mentana may experience heavier traffic. Additionally, it's important to note that during the winter season, certain mountain roads near Parma can be challenging due to snow and icy conditions. Check the weather and road conditions, use caution, and consider using winter tires or snow chains when driving in these areas.
  • Book your rental car in Parma at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Algorythme sent me through Kayak/Enterprise to a different company. Insurance doubled the total cost. ALWAYS call and talk to the office before hiring online as much cheaper!

Pros:

Great little car! Helpful staff...even with our non Italian vocabulary and their limited english.

Cons:

No helpful papers. It would be good to have maps in English and a sheet of what the road signs mean. Not a big thing but very helpful. Rental of GPS was a ridiculously high price. $300 for two weeks. These things are not that expensive and to rip off tourists like that is just greedy. We just went and bought one! A pushy Italian man pushed his way in front of us and then went outside and proceeded to hit a car while trying to move his rental. And acted like it was everyone's fault but his own...and he got away with it. Not cool on all counts.

3.6 Poor

Cons:

I had to wait an hour for my already short rental because I wasn't directly a Hertz customer, then I wasn't informed anywhere that they charge commission for the pre-paid gas so a €70 rental cost me €115, and another €100 rental after that cost me €177. Didn't find out until the second time because I wasn't even given a proper check out service at the end of the first. Disgusting, will never use them again.
