Palermo car hire with SIXT

Our Palermo car hire options give you the freedom of driving around and visiting tourist attractions in the surrounding areas of Sicily at will. You can pick up your choice of vehicle from one of our branches either at the airport or in the city centre, with friendly English-speaking service agents to assist you. You can book a compact city hatchback to access the narrow old streets more easily or a large minibus for day trips. There’s also pretty much anything in-between, depending on the size of your party. All our vehicles come from Europe’s top brands, offering you affordable luxury by supplying first-class cars at economy prices.

To get a sense of the city’s mixed cultural heritage, visit Palermo Cattedrale, where Norman, Gothic and Arabic architecture come together. For the beautiful ceiling mosaics that characterise the city, drive to the churches of Cappella Palatina and La Martorana. Foodies can drive to Piana degli Albanesi Village, 40 minutes away, to sample authentic Sicilian cannolis.

The best views over Palermo and the surrounding countryside can be had from Santa Maria di Gesù church. To get there, drive up the slopes of Monte Grifone. For outdoor activities head to Sicily’s oldest artificial lake at Piana. It’s about a 30-minute drive from Palermo.

Car collection and return did work out without a problem. They try to sell you an unnecessary insurance, but that happens basically with every car rental place, so that's not really a minus. Everything else was fine.

Very good service, the lady at the counter was very helpful. The car was I'm good condition and the price is very reasonable.

We had reserved a vehicle with Europcar but due to some technical issues together with the unwillingness of the local staff to offer alternative solutions, we were unable to pick up the car.


So, it was late in the evening and we had no option to get to our hotel via public transport.


Luckily, we met Fabiana from Sixt. She solved our problem, got us a good deal, and a nice car. Great service, great result, can only recommend!

Tarja S.

Very friendly and professional personal at the airport desk and delivery desk. For us it was very important that your company has "after hour delivery", because our flight arrival was at midnight.

I rented from Catania on a one way to return in Palermo. Both Sixt Catania and Palermo were awesome. Very accessible, addressed billing questions promptly, and most importantly, have reliable cars that what I’d booked for. None of that “this car or equivalent”
