KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Messina

  • Messina is a beautiful part of the island of Sicily and is, without a doubt, a must-see destination for lovers of warm weather, fine wine and great food. Cheap car hire in Messina is the perfect solution for the harbour city, which opens up across the north of Sicily when public transportation stops. Explore locally by visiting the 15th-century Norman Messina Cathedral, the Fontana di Orione with statues of the gods, or visit the Interdisciplinary Regional Museum of Messina. The harbour is lined with trendy, fun eateries and cafés and if you're wanting to venture further into Sicily, you will be placed close to the A90 motorway, running from Messina to Palermo, with a trip that takes about 3 hours.
  • When flying to the city, you can find your Messina car hire easily at the Tito Menniti Airport (REG). The car hire area is in the Arrivals Hall and you can find companies such as Avis, Ecovia and Sicily by Car at your service. Before driving off the lot, consider hiring a GPS navigation kit, particularly if your Italian is not up to scratch. Messina is about 1h5min away via the E45 and A2 highways.
  • When driving a cheap car hire in Messina, you will be using the right-hand side of the road to drive on. You will notice that Sicilian drivers are rather confident and will be quite impatient with a slow driver. Don’t let this concern you, rather be safe behind the wheel and stick to the speed limit. Hooting is very common and people will use it for everything from warnings to greetings. The blood alcohol limit in Sicily is 0.05% which is slightly lower than the UK. Stay buckled up and off your cellphone when driving, and always look out for scooters, which are a very popular method of transportation for locals.
  • There shouldn’t be many challenges to driving your cheap car hire in Messina, as roads are very good and the highways are excellent. The most challenging aspect will be the rural areas where you may come across some animals in the streets, but for the most part Messina is modernised. You may notice locals don’t stick to strict lanes or always use their signals. The trick is to safely go with the flow and exercise patience. Sicily mostly uses manual transmission cars, so make sure you are comfortable with a stick shift, or alternatively hire an automatic. You will find they are harder to come by and possibly more expensive.
  • Book your car hire in Messina at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Messina are around -477% cheaper than other car types, on average

Car hire insurance in Messina

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Messina car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Messina.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Messina car hire.
