Top tips for hiring a car in Dolomites

  • Drink-driving is a very serious offence in Italy, and anyone found driving over the limit will be prosecuted accordingly. Repercussions could be anything from a fine to imprisonment. If the police believe you to be under the influence of alcohol, then they will perform a breathalyser test on you. The legal limit of blood alcohol content in Italy is 0.05%. You should avoid alcohol well in advance of driving.
  • Children must be in a suitable restraint in the vehicle so that you’re abiding by the laws. Children under 15 months need to be in a rear-facing child seat. Kids under 4 years of age must be in a forward-facing child restraint. Whereas those under 12 years of age must be in a booster seat, or have a booster cushion.
  • Most car hire agencies in the Dolomites will permit you to drive your vehicle across the border to other countries, such as Germany or Austria. If you plan to do this, you must get written permission first, as not all agencies allow border crossings. If you do not have permission to drive in other countries, then your insurance will be invalid. It’s also worth noting that some cars have a mileage cap on the hire period, which means you might be restricted in the distance you can drive anyway.
  • To pay for your Dolomites car hire, you will need a credit card that’s in the name of the main driver. Some agencies will accept a debit card payment, but you normally still need a credit card so that you can leave a deposit. Pre-paid cards or cash are not acceptable forms of payment. It’s worth checking with your agency prior to arrival, to see what forms of payment they accept.
  • Book your car hire in Dolomites at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • Should I hire a car in the Dolomites?

    Car hire in the Dolomites is a great idea if you want to have more flexibility and freedom on your journey. You’ll be able to explore at your own speed and visit hard-to-reach locations, which isn’t always possible with public transport. The Dolomites is a stunning mountain range in northeast Italy, with many great locations to visit. With a hire car you will find it easier to reach some of the most popular destinations, such as Parco Naturale Paneveggio Pale di San Martino and Parco Naturale Sciliar-Catinaccio Naturpark Schlern-Rosengarten. It’s also great to just drive between the quaint towns and villages, too, which you can’t always reach using a bus.

  • What is driving like in the Dolomites?

    Driving in the Dolomites is a fun experience, with the scenery being breathtaking throughout. The main roads in the mountain range tend to be well-kept, so you will find it easy getting from one location to the next. Whereas, rural roads are less well-maintained, so keep an eye out for potholes. The driving style is quite relaxed throughout the Dolomites, although in urban areas you will find that drivers are less patient and drive more aggressively. No matter where you’re driving, it always helps to stay calm and confident. In general, roads are quite narrow in the Dolomites, so it’s important that you drive with caution. Most towns are well-signposted, too, so you should be able to reach your destination easily. Don’t forget that in Italy, you will need to drive on the right-hand side of the road.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in the Dolomites?

    You will normally need to be at least 21 years of age to hire a car in the Dolomites. Some agencies will require you to be older, though. If you are under the age of 25, you will likely have to pay a young person’s surcharge to hire a vehicle, whilst your choice of cars will also be reduced, as most agencies have age restrictions on certain vehicle types. To hire a car, you will need to provide the agency with a valid ID and a current driving licence.
