Good to know when you’re visiting Venice

Car rental under 25 in Venice

You need to be at least 18 years old, with a license held for 1 year or more, for a car rental in Venice. Some car categories have a higher minimum age, and an underage driver fee applies to those under 25.

What to do while in Venice

There are tons of things to see and do during your trip to Venice. You’ll want to check out many of the attractions on the main island, like Saint Mark’s Basilica, the Grand Canal and the Doge’s Palace. While there are no cars allowed on the island of Venice, you’ll most likely be staying on the mainland, so it will be convenient to use your car to park near the bridge and walk over. You’ll also want to check out Villa Foscari, which is just a short drive south of Venice. 

Summer in Venice

Venice is beautiful in the summer. Both the island and the mainland are bursting with life and festivities during the summer months. You’ll definitely want to check out the islands of Murano and Burano to see the colors of the buildings gleam in the sun. It’s also a great time to go boating or hit the beach at the Lido. And at the end of a long, hot day exploring, indulge in some authentic Italian gelato.

After being let down by Sicily By Car (they would not accept a payment with debit card, even if I had paid the deposit online, then refused to serve me all together because I complained about it…) I went to Sixt! They were absolutely fantastic… In five minutes I had a vehicle! The gentleman that served me was kind, professional, and explained everything so well. They accepted Debit Card payment. Keep in mind they will take a deposit of about £250 that will be returned when you bring the vehicle back. They were not on the desk upon my return, but you can conveniently drop the keys off in one of their special drawers. I was a little anxious about the deposit for a few days, but I have been reassured by the call centre that it will be retuned within maximum 10 working days.

The vehicles are kept on the first floor of the car park. You will be given a ticket to exit the car park.


The only downside is to know where to drop off your car (if you are renting a van). I parked up the road opposite to the airport. They have free 60 minutes parking and free 90 minutes parking. For longer time you will need to use the other paying car parks, there are several but the ones opposite to the airport should be cheaper.

Everything was great from zero time waiting to pick up the car, the car being easy to find and not outside in the pouring rain, to dropping off the car outside of business hours with no issues and the receipt returned with no extra unexpected charges. I will say I thought I had purchased the full coverage when I reserved the car online and it was included in the cost I was expecting to pay but upon arrival I was given a spill of how I only paid for "full coverage per small incident", not for the total cost of car should a major accident occur. I was confused and felt upsold on that but bought it anyway because driving in a country I had never driven before, I wanted to be covered, just in case. So I paid quite a bit more than I was expecting, and to top it off, I paid and was expecting a "premium" car so I had a higher value car in mind than the VW I ended up with. The car was fine though, no issues, just definitely not premium or luxurious. Overall I am very happy to have chosen SIXT for my rental services.
