KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Milan

  • Explore Milan and the beautiful Italian landscape conveniently with a hire car. Visit one of the many adjoining parks or other picturesque Italian cities like Monza or Gorgonzola (where the famous cheese is made), which are less than an hour away by car. With a hire car, you will be at your dream destinations in no time.
  • Pick up a hire car directly upon your arrival at Milan Malpensa International Airport to get into the center of this fashion metropole in just under an hour, as the airport is located 51 miles from the heart of Milan. Companies like Sixt, Hertz, or Avis provide their cars from the desks at Terminal 1 in the arrivals hall. A free shuttle bus goes from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 and the hire car center. Travelers arriving at the Milan Linate Airport can also rent a car from there and can drive into Milan’s city center in under 30 minutes.
  • Milan is among the cities which operate ZTL (zona a traffico limitato), which means some areas of the city cannot be accessed by non-residents during specific times due to traffic restrictions. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the times you are allowed to go into certain zones. Also consider that driving defensively is pivotal in Italian cities, as the driving style is generally rather aggressive and some speed limits or signs are not adhered to at all times.
  • If possible, try to avoid driving in the city center, unless your hotel is there and you’ve been issued a pass to enter the zone (ask the hire car provider or your hotel for details). Milan has narrow lanes with cyclists, pedestrians, and motorbikes zooming in and out, so driving attentively and at a low speed is very important.
