SIXT's location at Catania Airport

After collecting your bags, go out into the arrival's hall of CTA and ahead of you is the SIXT desk. Here you can collect the car keys and our customer service agents will give you directions to the car collection point which is within walking distance from the terminal. When returning your Sicily Catania Airport car hire, follow the signs for Arrivals and look for the SIXT Car Return area in the car hire parking area. You can drop off or collect your vehicle out of hours – this service needs to be booked in advance and there is an additional fee.  

Explore Catania and the rest of Sicily with your car hire

Once you have picked up your CTA car hire pop into the city of Catania, only 15 minutes away, to explore sights like the Piazza Duomo, Ursino Castle and the Cathedral of Catania in the Old Town. If you want to venture out of the city, take your Sicily Catania Airport car hire, maybe a 4x4, and drive an hour to the Etna National Park to visit the famous volcano. For wine lovers, Sicily abounds with wine tasting possibilities so hire a car at the airport and drive up the coast, about an hour’s drive from Sicily Catania International Airport, to the wineries in the Etna region, north of Parco dell’Etna.

Great Sixt location, as usual. I only rent Sixt and this is mainly because of the great staff in each location, it doesn’t matter if in Italy, US, Germany or Portugal, they are always friendly and helpful. This Time both Rosalia and the counter and Daniela at the car were not only friendly but extremely helpful. Car pick up and return were done only in a few minutes, as usual! I’m a Sixt fan all the way!

Thanks a lot!

Excellent rent from Sixt. Very smooth check out the car. Ms. Valentina Salerno was providing excellent service. Fluent English.


I would highly recommend Sixt rental office in Catania. May be the price little higher the others, but having clean and new cars and excellent service worth every single euro.

Very efficient handling (especially the return), 1 tire was loosing air, but the general experience was recommendable.

I made reservation over Internet. Upon arrival we were served by Ms. Antonella. She was really pushing a variety of insurance policies. She finally sold me a Roadside Protection and Tire and Windshield claiming that roads are really bad in Sicily.

She quoted a price of 100 Euros.

Well, the actual final charge came to 141.52 Euros as Antonella "conveniently" forgot to include other fees and taxes for this wasteful "insurance".

Also, in my contract it stated that I would return car at 22:00 and I was pre-charged for the extra day because of late return. Actually the car was returned at 20:40. But because the Sixt lot attendant was not present and I dropped the keys into the night box - it cost me another 14 Euros.

So, dear Sixt - I would appreciate if you get in touch with me (you know my email, right?) in order refund me 55 Euros of overcharge.

It also important to note that the car was a good and clean car. And it was returned in the same condition as it was received.

NOTE: In the matter of fact, I received a call from Sixt Catania location. The manager of the location has agreed with my assesment and confirmed that they would refund the above amount. So I’m changing my review to 4 stars.

Polite and friendly service after we were robbed by neighbouring cheap rental companies, and the price was even better!
