Centauro Car Hire at Rome Ciampino Airport
Rome is overflowing with history. Come here and you will be in awe of the ancient ruins, the elegant buildings and the magnificent statues and fountains. Many head directly for the Colosseum and the Forum - and they are certainly must-sees - but plan your time well as you can find yourself doing a lot of walking and, especially in the summer, that can be hard work. The hop on and off buses are great for while you are in the centre - many roads are restricted to non residents and you will be penalised for using them but your hire car will be invaluable for helping you explore around the local area. A short drive will take you to the ancient port of Ostia Antica, a longer drive and you could be at Pompeii.
If you are looking for budget car hire, then Centauro will be of interest. As they are located off the airport, they manage to keep their costs down. They provide a regular shuttle service from Parking area 5 at the airport to their offices where you can collect your car. As a budget supplier you are more likely to come across the sales pitch at the desk and that can mean that the queues move slower than some would like. However the competitive rates could win many people over.
Centauro offer a handy debit card package to those who are not able to use a credit card for their hire. It does mean taking out Centauro's full insurance but puts car hire within reach of those who might otherwise be unable to rent a vehicle. If you are using a credit card but wish to waive the excess so as to avoid a large block on your card, opt for their premium range. This will also add cover for the underbody, windows, mirrors and tyres. Add on to this the extras that you need such as car seats or a GPS.

Centauro are a high quality low cost car hire company who operate from offices just outside the airport. By being based off airport they can avoid the high fees demanded by the airport operator, and pass this on in the form of cheaper car hire prices for renters.
Once you have collected your luggage, come out of the Terminal and make your way to parking 5 located on your right hand side. Here you will find the Centauro Shuttle Bus to take you to the office. Vehicles must be returned to the Centauro car park and then you will be taken to the Departure Hall by Shuttle Bus. (Contact number 0039 0683664029).
