Pisa Airport Car Hire
Pisa Airport is one Italy's fastest growing international gateways, with double digit growth experienced for much of the last decade. Serving both scheduled and low cost airlines (it is a hub for both Alitalia and Ryanair). There has been considerable investment into the infrastructure of the airport and its transport links, although currently the main benefits have still to be seen from a passenger perspective.
Where are the car hire desks at Pisa 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 firms based on Pisa Airport is in the Car Rentals Terminal which is about 500 metres from the terminal building. You can reach it using a free shuttle bus service, located just outside the Airport Arrivals area (turn right). Alternatively you can also reach the Car Rentals Terminal on foot within 5 minutes.
For the budget conscious there is the option of off airport suppliers who are based about 10 - 15 minutes from the terminal. You will need to call an Italian number on arrival at Pisa airport to arrange your shuttle bus pick up. Having phoned through follow the Car Rental Shuttle signs just outside the arrival gate. Wait by the Car Rental Shuttle Stop and a branded shuttle will arrive to pick you up. Do not take any other shuttles as these will take you to the wrong location. Whilst we see plenty of positive feedback regarding our off airport supplier it is true to say that some customers find the transfer time rather to long - if you think you will find this trying we suggest using an on airport car fire firm
Where can I collect/drop off the car at Pisa Airport?
The on airport car hire drop off point is easily located if you follow the signs as you enter the airport.
If returning the car to the off airport supplier take the car back to the companies office where you collected it. The car rental company will arrange to drop you back to Pisa airport. Do allow an extra hour to complete the formalities at the car hire station and to get back to the airport.
Pisa Airport Top Tips
- The station at Pisa airport is currently closed as there is a new people mover being built to transport travellers into and from the City Centre - expect some disruption.
- If you are on a tight timescale send the driver onto the car hire centre to complete formalities while the rest of the party collect any bags. Do make sure any luggage receipts are left with the bag collectors so they can report loss if they go astray!
