“At Catania Airport we had to wait in line for an hour before it was our turn. That was annoying. It seemed as if everyone had rented a car through EasyTerra. Other than that, everything fine!”

“Everything was excellently organized”

“"Excellent service, timely response to questions. Had initially booked a car well in advance. Received a much better offer via the Internet in the meantime. It was no problem to cancel the initial booking and make a new booking at a better rate. The surplus was refunded quickly and correctly. I would definitely recommend them and book through them again."”

Location information for Catania

Car hire Catania


The city of Catania is located at the foot of Mount Etna. Although the city makes a chaotic and unattractive first impression, it offers some surprises. It may not come as a surprise that there is a lot of crime in the city, which is situated on the island of Sicily, known for the Mafia.


Catania is the 10th largest city of Italy. The city has around 300,000 inhabitants, which makes it the third largest city of Sicily.


Catania is located on the east coast of the Italian island of Sicily, on the Ionian Sea. From the city, you can see the 3,000 meters high Mount Etna. Many people choose Catania as their base for visiting Mount Etna.


Catania has a commercial port, which borders on the Ionian Sea. The city has the highest number of professional and amateur theatre companies per square meter in all of Italy. Since the 1990's, it also has a vibrant nightlife, which is important to the economy. In addition, the tourist sector is important as well. Many tourists visit Catania on their way to Mount Etna. The city itself also has a number of interesting things to offer. And finally, there is a lot of crime in the city. This is to be expected on the home island of the Mafia.


Catania Airport, also known as Fontanarossa, lies 7 kilometers to the south-west of the city. It handles domestic as well as international flights. International flights always make a stop-over in Rome or Milan, although there are exceptions during the summer season, with direct flights from, for instance, London.

Public transport

From Catania, you can take the bus to, for instance, Palermo (Sicily's largest city), and even to Rome. There are also city buses and regional buses. From the train station, you can also take the train to other cities on Sicily.

Traffic and Parking

Although it is easy enough to get to Catania, once you enter the city it is another matter. Catania's complex one-way system, in combination with the narrow streets, makes it a difficult place to drive. Traffic is regularly clogged and it is hard to park your car. We therefore recommend leaving your car at the edge of the city and proceeding on foot or by public transport.


There is nothing special to report on the hotels in Catania, other than advising you to book in advance.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Hire? at this location
