    Convenient Locations in Rome

    Travellers to Rome will be pleased to find a number of convenient car hire pick-up and drop-off locations across the city. From popular airport and rail stations to downtown offices across the city, we've got a convenient location for you. Alongside this, Auto Europe has teamed up with top suppliers such as Europcar, Avis and Hertz to make sure your experience is as easy as can be.

    In Rome, cameras enforce a Zona a Traffico Limitato, a restricted traffic area. This area usually corresponds to the historic parts of the city and restricts traffic to local residents, shopkeepers and public transport. Driving in these areas without a permit results in a fine, and therefore is best to be avoided! For parking in the city, expect to pay around €2 per hour in either the street parking or the public garages.

    Tolls on the autostrada, Italy’s highway system, are required to be paid in cash. Upon entering, you'll be able to take a ticket from a machine to pass through the barriers and the total cost of your drive will be calculated upon exit.
