Car hires in Olbia: practical information

Where to rent a car in Olbia

Heading to Sardinia? After you’ve booked your flights to Olbia, it’s time to start comparing Olbia car hire deals. Getting around Sardinia without a rental car is far from easy! Pick up a car hire from the airport, choosing from Hertz, Alamo, Maggiore, Budget, Avis, Europcar or Sixt.

In Olbia city centre, you’re more likely to find local car hire agencies but best to compare prices online beforehand and also read the fine print! Often small local agencies don’t offer the same sort of coverage that international brands do.

Driving in Olbia: parking and other tips

The locals know their city roads so don’t think twice about racing along narrow lanes and twisting and curving roads out in the hills. Don’t follow their lead; stick to the speed limits and drive with caution at night.

As for parking, the ideal situation would be to book a hotel in Olbia with car park facilities. But if that’s not possible, buy a pass at a city centre car park that’s located near your hotel.
