Rented a large SUV, gave me a station wagonThe first clerk that helped me was very kind and apologetic for the problem with the car category. Both cars were in very good conditions.They didn't have large SUVs, nor any SUV, available for me, despite I booked weeks in advance. They gave me a brand new station wagon, which was a lower category, a smaller car and forced me to postpone the part of my trip that included some dusty roads. I had to go back two days later to swap the car for a mid-sized SUV, which was still insufficient to hold 5 of us + luggage, despite I paid for that. The clerk for the swap didn't even apologize for the inconvenience, and dismissed my complaints as I "booked online" and therefore they are not responsible if the car category is not available.

They cancelled my reservation 3 weeks after booking saying that the car chosen was not available and, then, they made me pay almost $500 more (the lowest price available at that time) for a smaller car. They never honored the original price.

Anna-Cristina was very helpful and patient even though the line was long and she was the only attendant due to COVID regulations.I wasn't aware that I needed to retrieve the car at Hertz at the Cagliari Airport even though I rented from Dollar (unless I missed it in the fine print somewhere, but it wasn't obvious). Another attendant would have been helpful as it was quite a long line and I waited over 30 minutes, but I understand this may have been due to COVID regulations for staffing. The check engine "(!)" yellow light came on a few days before my return, and the roadside assistance employee told me over the phone that I should explain this to an attendant upon return. I ended up returning the car 1 day early before the scheduled time, and wanted to confirm the early return/ensure that I would be charged accordingly, as well as explain the check engine light situation, but no one was there when I returned the car and I wasn't sure which number to call since I made the reservation through Dollar but it was actually via Hertz.

I would like a refundWe paid the insurance beforehand, and at the airport we did not get the car. Dollar rentals were run by hertz, and the hertz employees said they cannot help us, and that the dollar policies have not been met, regarding the fact that we ha electronic credit cards (something along these lines, they were speaking mosty italian).We paid the insurance beforehand, and at the airport we did not get the car.

Car hire excess insurance in Cagliari

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Cagliari car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Cagliari.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Cagliari car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Cagliari

  • Cagliari is a wondrous city that still today displays an authentic depiction of the blended beauty of ancient Roman life and the Mediterranean Sea. Renting a car is the best way to access the expanse of beaches that surrounds Cagliari and the island of Sardinia, including the world-renowned Poetto strip and the stunning coastline of Quartu Sant’Elena and Villasimius. Whether you are interested in escaping to the clear blue waters or seeing the town’s ruins and museums, Cagliari is the ultimate travel destination for a hire car.
  • Cagliari Airport (CAG) is located just over 10 km (6 miles) from the city center and has a host of major hire companies to choose from. Once you have assessed the best deals on the market using KAYAK, picking up the keys for your hire car upon arrival couldn’t be easier. Major global hire companies such as Thrifty, Hertz, and Avis have counters conveniently located within the arrivals section of the airport. Olbia Airport is the only other flight route possible to Sardinia; however, it is a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Cagliari.
  • An International Driver's Permit is a requirement if you wish to drive on Italian roads. If you plan on exploring the island of Sardinia, be mindful that, despite being a popular holiday destination, it remains a strong agricultural area and you may come across flocks of sheep or other animals on the roads. Be careful to avoid driving on any dirt roads in rural areas, as this will almost certainly void your hire insurance conditions.
  • Renting a car in Cagliari an especially enjoyable experience, thanks to the reasonably quiet and stress-free roads. Expect an increase of drivers on the road during the peak summer holiday period, especially surrounding the Poetto beach district. This can, however, be easily managed by providing a little extra time to reach your destination.
