Turin is a city with about 900,000 inhabitants in the northwest of Italy, which can be easily explored by rental car. It is located in the Piedmont region, has a total area of 130 square kilometers and is 100 km away from northern Switzerland and western France. While a large part of Turin lies in the fertile Po plain, some districts in the east extend up to 750 meters high hills. The city was founded 2,000 years ago as a Roman settlement and looks back on an eventful past. Accordingly many sights are waiting here for your visit.
You can reach Turin by plane via International Airport Sandro Pertini (IATA Code TRN). All relevant car rental companies are present at the airport and you can reach the city centre by rental car in about 30 minutes. Thanks to the motorway-like expressway, the 16 kilometres between Turin and the airport are easy to travel. In the northern Italian city many destinations are available for rental car journeys, here are some suggestions.
When you arrive at Turin Airport, renting a car will be a long and unsuccessful business, especially during the peak travel season. The desired rental car is not available and offered compromises rarely deserve the term cheap. There are many formalities to be completed, and often insufficient communication is hampered. All these aspects can be excluded if you rent a suitable vehicle in advance of your holiday trip. We work with any car rental company that runs an office at Turin Airport. Our offers include economical small cars, convertibles, SUV models and minibuses for large families or groups. Not only do you rent from us for a very reasonable price, you can also choose when booking practical accessories and comfortable services. You should pay attention to these details when booking.
A fully comprehensive insurance without excess regulates all resulting costs in the event of an accident at any time, the policy is therefore recommended by recognised experts. However, if you conclude a comprehensive insurance contract with a deductible for your rental car, you will share in the costs in an emergency. Unintentional loads can only be avoided with the recommended variant.
Every rental car will only be given to you against deposit of a deposit, the car rental will block the amount on your credit card and release it when you return the car. A valid credit card with sufficient funds available is therefore indispensable when renting. You can see the amount of the deposit for each rental car on our portal.
You could use Turin Airport as a starting point for a tour and return your rental car to the same car rental company at an airport you specify. The process can be done when booking on our portal, with this variant you rent cheap and see more of Bella Italia.
If you should let the rented car drive occasionally by a companion, this must be noted in the contract at the takeover at the airport by the car rental company. Why? Because it extends insurance cover to the additional driver. This procedure is particularly important in the event of an accident.
You can be sure of an eventful holiday with a rental car if you follow the following rules:
|Road category||highest speed|
|Inner cities||50 km/h|
|Out of town||90 - 110 km/h|
Renting a car is the ideal solution to personalize your holiday in Italy and see as much as possible. For a perfect impression of the metropolis of the north, take Via Garibaldi, the city's longest pedestrian zone. All national and international fashion brands are represented here, and the street is lined with cafés, bistros and restaurants.
The landmark of Turin is the Mole Antonelliana, a film museum with viewing platform at 86 meters height. The San Giovanni Cathedral, the Automobile Museum and the Chiesa della Gran Madre di Dio are also worth seeing in the centre. There are also impressive palaces to visit.
The castle, about eight kilometres from the centre of Turin, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most popular excursion destinations in the region. Built in the 15th century, the castle was the seat of the Savoy family until a few decades ago. Accordingly, there are many historical treasures to discover here.
The district directly on the Po is also called the Riviera of Turin. Here you can swim, do various water sports or just lie in the shade and watch the river banks. Here you can survive a hot midsummer day in a good mood with local specialities and cool drinks. For example, enjoy a Barolo wine from the Piedmont region.
