Milan Malpensa Airport Car Hire
Milan Malpensa Airport is one of Italy's major international gateway and many intercontinental travellers arrive through it into the country. It therefore has a thriving car hire service, both in the airport terminal and in offices and hotels nearby.
Where are the car hire desks at Milan Malpensa Airport?
The most important thing to do is to follow the instructions on your rental documents. It will also depend on whether you have chosen an on airport supplier or one who is based off airport and operates a shuttle service.
The main location for car hire desks is in the lower part of Terminal 1, (BA are one of 54 airlines who fly in there), next to the car park where the rental vehicles are situated.
If you arrive at Terminal 2 and need to transit across to T1 there is a free 24 hour shuttle, which for most of the day runs every 7 minutes and takes 10 minutes.
For the budget conscious there is the option of off airport suppliers who are based in a hotel a few minutes drive from the terminal. In that situation you should follow the airport exit number 10 signposted ‘Hotel Parking Shuttle’ and a shuttle bus will take you to the car hire office about a 2 minute journey from the airport. An assistance number will be provided in case of any queries.
Where can I collect/drop off the car at Milan Malpensa Airport?
The on airport car hire drop off point is well signposted as you enter the airport. Follow the signs, and on entering the car park locate the company your car is provided by.
If your company is off airport take the car back to the company's offices where you collected the vehicle. The car rental company will arrange to drop you back to Milan Malpensa airport.
