Top tips for renting a car in Sardinia

  • Exploring Sardinia in a car hire is one of the best ways to see all that the island has to offer, including its spectacular scenery. As most of the main roads in Sardinia are generally in good condition you will be fine with a two-wheeled drive. However, if you wish to drive on the minor roads, you might benefit from better handling on the bendy roads if you opt for a 4X4 car. If you plan to be driving around the coast for a lot of the time, then you might want to choose a convertible so you can smell the fresh sea air.
  • You can also do your bit for the environment whilst hiring a car in Sardinia, by opting for an eco-friendly vehicle. You could, for example, choose a hybrid that runs on both petrol and electricity, thereby reducing the amount of carbon emissions the car releases into the atmosphere. Not only will this be great for the surroundings, but it’s also cheaper to run than a vehicle that relies just on fuel. You’ll be able to find many petrol stations across the island of Sardinia, with there being lots of accessible electric charging stations too, especially in Cagliari.
  • When you’re driving in Sardinia, you need to ensure that you follow the rules of the road, or risk getting penalised by the local authorities. The police perform random breath tests on cars to check for alcohol, so make sure you don't drink before you drive. Anything above 0.5 mg of alcohol per ml of blood and you will find yourself in trouble. You must also always wear your seat belt or risk being pulled over by the authorities. If you are driving on a dual carriage way, you should also have your headlights switched on, no matter what time of the day it is.

FAQs about renting a car in Sardinia

  • Should I rent a car in Sardinia?

    Hiring a car in Sardinia gives you the freedom and flexibility you will want when exploring this magical island. You will be able to live by your own schedule, rather than that of a bus timetable. Car hire also works out as great value if used several times throughout your trip. If you want to take a trip to a rural swimming spot for example, such as that of Spiaggia di Talmone in the north of the island, then there is no better way to get there than by driving at your own pace.

  • What is driving like in Sardinia?

    You will find driving in Sardinia is different to what you are used to in the UK. One of the main differences is that you will be driving on the right side of the road rather than the left. You will also have the steering wheel on the left of the car, so it may seem a bit confusing to begin with. The speed limits on the island are similar to that of the United Kingdom though. If you are driving in an urban area you must not drive faster than 50km/h (31mph), single carriageway roads in rural areas have a speed limit of 90km/h (56mph), whereas dual carriageways have a limit of 120kph (75mph).

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Sardinia?

    Different car hire agencies tend to have different rules about how old you have to be to hire a car, so it is worth checking each one to see if you are old enough. In general, you need to be 21 to hire a car on the island. Although if you hire a car with some companies you are able to do so from the age of 18, albeit with a limited selection of cars to choose from. It is also likely that you will need to pay a surcharge when hiring a car if you are under a certain age. For instance, other companies will charge anyone younger than 25 a surcharge when hiring a car in Sardinia.
