KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Cosenza

  • Choosing to take advantage of car hire in Cosenza can significantly enhance your travel experience. It offers you the flexibility to set your own schedule and move at your own pace. This is particularly useful if you're keen on exploring more remote or rural areas, as some of the most beautiful spots in the Calabria region might not be easily accessible with public transport such the gorgeous Silano National Park located approximately 60 kilometres northwest of Cosenza, or Praia a Mare, which boasts crystal-clear waters and stunning views.
  • If you’re arriving at Lamezia Terme Airport (SUF), it’s straightforward to hire a car. Once you’ve collected your luggage, you should easily find the car hire service desks in the Arrivals Hall. If you encounter any issues, don’t hesitate to ask the airport staff. To complete your Cosenza car hire, you’ll need to present your driving licence and leave a security deposit for the car. If you're from outside the EU, you might also need an International Driving Permit, so do check this in advance.
  • Driving in Cosenza, like many Italian cities, can be a bit of an adventure for those unaccustomed to it. Always have your driving licence and hire documents with you whenever you're driving. In the city centre, you'll come across narrow streets typical of historical Italian cities. You also need to be on the lookout for the Zona Traffico Limitato (ZTL) in Cosenza’s historic centre, where traffic is limited to reduce congestion and pollution. Entering one without proper authorisation can result in hefty fines. Lastly, while driving around the wider Calabria region allows you to enjoy the stunning coastal roads, they can be quite winding and sometimes steep, so it's crucial to stay alert.
  • Driving in Cosenza is not without its challenges. The narrow streets can be difficult to navigate, especially in larger vehicles. The roads are often cobbled and can become particularly busy during peak times between 0700 - 1000 and 1600 - 1900. Italian drivers are known for their dynamic driving style. While they generally adhere to traffic regulations, you might notice some drivers being assertive, particularly at roundabouts and junctions.
  • Book your car hire in Cosenza at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Cosenza are around 387% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Cosenza?

    When opting for car hire in Cosenza, it's generally recommended to opt for a smaller model, unless a larger car is absolutely necessary. A smaller car can make navigating the tight corners and narrow lanes far less daunting. Another consideration is the cost of petrol. If you're planning on doing a significant amount of driving, the fuel efficiency of a smaller car can be a real benefit.

  • What’s the speed limit in Cosenza?

    In Italy, the speed limit within city or town boundaries, including Cosenza, is typically 50 km/h (31 mph). On roads outside of urban areas, the speed limit is usually 90 km/h (55 mph). Finally, on Italian motorways, the general speed limit is 130 km/h (80 mph). Keep an eye out for posted signs indicating the speed limit at all times, as they can be significantly lower in residential areas and in certain weather conditions. If you do opt for car hire in Cosenza, remember that speed limits are strictly enforced in Italy, and fines for speeding can be quite high.

  • Where are the best places to park in Cosenza?

    Finding a parking spot in Cosenza can be a bit of a challenge, especially during peak hours or in the city centre. Public parking is available throughout the city and is often signposted. The colour of the lines indicates the type of parking: blue lines mean the space is paid parking, white lines mean it's free parking, and yellow lines are reserved for disabled drivers or specific services. There are paid car parks on Piazza Giacomo Mancini square and on Via Felice Migliori (about £1.50/€2 per hour), which offer an excellent central location.
