Start with a rental car at Cagliari Airport (CAG)

Discovering Cagliari's old town

Discovering Cagliari's old town

Cagliari is the capital of the island of Sardinia, which belongs to Italy, and is best explored by rental car. The city, with a population of almost 160,000, is located in the southern area and is surrounded by the Golfo di Quartu, the Golfo degli Angeli and the Campidano plain. Cagliari and Rome, the capital of Italy, have two common characteristics: both metropolises were founded a long time ago and are each built on seven hills. In addition, you can rent a cheap rental car in both places and thus explore the city itself and the surrounding area. For almost 90 years, the Sardinian island capital Cagliari has had an airport just a few kilometers outside the center. It is called Aeroporto Internationale Elmas and has the IATA code CAG. If you rent a car directly at the airport, you can explore Sardinia on your own.

Enjoy the spring sun in Cagliari

Cagliari in springtime is something you just have to experience. If you travel to Sardinia by plane, you will probably land at Cagliari Airport. It is best to take a rental car directly from there and start your spring vacation. Look forward to mild, spring-like temperatures and a paradise of blossoming orange groves. That's how vacations are fun! Another plus in spring in Cagliari are the few tourists. So you can enjoy the white sandy beaches and the deep blue water to the full. In the spring months of March, April and May it is a good idea to visit the historic castles and mountain villages around Cagliari. At this time of year it is not too hot on the island and you can make many excursions around Cagliari. Well, what are you waiting for? Start your well-deserved spring vacation in Cagliari.

Information about Elmas Cagliari Airport

  • Cagliari Airport (CAG) is located 7 km northwest of the Sardinian capital and takes its name from the Elmas region. Locals and tourists flying in from Italy also call it Aeroporto Mario Mameli.
  • Meanwhile the airport CAG is the biggest and most important airport of Sardinia.
  • The first propeller plane to Rome took off from here in 1928. International flights have been taking place since May 1937.
  • At present, about three million passengers use the airport, which was completely modernized 20 years ago, every year. The two runways handle more than 15,000 take-offs and landings per year.
  • The majority of the passengers come from Italy. Internationally, the airport is mainly used by Germans and Spaniards.

What you should check when you pick up your rental car

The right way to rent your rental car

The right way to rent your rental car

The following points can be discussed in the airport office of the lessor of your rental car:

  • How are the car rental offers insured? You certainly want to enjoy your stay in Sardinia without any worries and should therefore insist on a fully comprehensive insurance without excess.
  • Cheap car offers should be questioned by you on prescribed equipment details. These include, for example, child seats, if you are on vacation with your children in Sardinia.
  • You should also find out which fuel regulation the car rental company prescribes for your favorite rental car. As a rule, you take over your car at the pick-up station with a full tank of fuel and must return it in the same condition. In this case, it is important how many kilometers the nearest gas station is from Cagliari Elmas CAG airport.
  • You are in Italy for the first time and want to explore the whole island of Sardinia with a rental car from Cagliari? Then you should rent a car with no mileage limit, because it will make your stay especially cheap.
  • If you are planning to visit the neighboring island of Corsica with your rental car, be sure to obtain insurance information. Not every car rental company rents out vehicles with international insurance policies.
  • How is the deposit for your rental car handled? Does it block the car rental on the credit card or do you have to transfer the amount directly?

What are the highlights of Cagliari and its surroundings that I must not miss?

Take a kayak tour

Since you are always flexible and independent with a rental car, you can explore Cagliari and its surroundings on your own. Visit for example the Cagliari Cathedral or the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Cagliari. The Torre dell' Elefante is also worth a trip with a rental car. If you prefer to relax on the beach, we recommend Su Giudeu or Cala Regina. Here you can relax wonderfully and enjoy the wonderful weather. But also for active vacationers Sardinia has a lot to offer. Go on a kayak tour, go hiking or take part in a dolphin sighting. As you can see, there is something for everyone in Sardinia, whether you are a culture lover, sun worshipper or sports enthusiast.

What traffic rules do I have to respect in Sardinia?

Speed limits

If you are travelling in Sardinia with a rental car, you should always keep to the speed limits. These are 50 km/h in the city, 90 km/h outside the city and 90 km/h on highways. There are no freeways in Sardinia.

Safety belts

In Italy, and thus also in Sardinia, seat belts are compulsory. This obligation applies to all passengers, including dogs.


If you leave the rental car and want to walk a bit, you should know the following markings regarding parking:

Marking Meaning
Blue stripes paid parking

Black-yellow stripes no parking
