KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Pantelleria

  • Car hire in Pantelleria offers flexibility and convenience. Unlike public transport, you can explore at your own pace and visit places not accessible by bus or ferry. While there are buses on the island, they are infrequent and may not take you everywhere you want to go. Must-visit places such as Cala Cinque Denti and Arco dell'Elefante are not easily accessible by public transport, but with a car, you can easily reach these stunning locations.
  • When considering car hire in Pantelleria, and arriving directly at Pantelleria Airport (PNL), you'll find car hire desks are conveniently located in the arrivals hall. The desks are easy to find upon exiting the arrivals area. To get to the car hire car park, simply follow the signs from the terminal building. Pantelleria Airport is the only major airport on the island and is located approximately 5 km (3 miles) from the city centre. The most popular car hire company at this airport is Auto Europa. They are well-known for their competitive rates, wide selection of vehicles, and excellent customer service.

  • There are no rush hours in Pantelleria, as the island maintains a relaxed pace of life.
