    Milan enforces "Area C" as a congestion charging zone, which encompasses the historical centre of the city. The charge is €5 per day and is payable if you drive in the area from Monday to Friday 7:30am-7:30pm, or 6pm on Thursdays. Check before you travel as the charge and operational hours are subject to change. Parking structures in the city charge €5 for the first hour and €1.50-2.00 for each additional hour. There are plenty of park and ride schemes at metro stations further out from the centre.

    Tolls on the autostrada, Italy's highway system, are required to be paid in cash. You must take a ticket upon entering, and the total cost will be calculated upon exit.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring a Car in Milan

    How old do you need to be to hire a car in Milan?

    To hire a car in Milan, drivers must be at least 18 years of age. Drivers in the range of 18 - 25 should be aware that they will most likely be subject to an additional "young driver surcharge," which is typically a daily charge that will vary depending on the supplier.

    Is car hire insurance required in Italy?

    Most countries will require drivers to have third party liability insurance at the very least when hiring a car. However, Auto Europe makes car hire insurance simple and includes both third party liability and fire insurance in all of our car hire rates - so, you can pick-up with confidence and take to the streets with ease.

    Can I drive my car hire into other countries?

    Travel throughout Western European countries can typically be done with little restriction for most car hires. For situations such as luxury hires, travel restrictions may apply and we encourage you to contact us toll-free on 1300 656 601 for more information.
