Lamezia Terme Airport Car Rental

Lamezia Terme Airport Basics.....

The Lamezia Terme Airport (SUF) is a smaller airport located about 15 km (via rental car) from the town of Lamezia Terme and a couple of km from the Mediterranean Sea.  The airport serves between 1.5 and 2 million passengers per year in and out of the area.

Lamezia Terme Airport Car Rental.....

Currently, there are several car rental companies located at the Lamezia Terme Airport.  These include Budget, Maggiore, Europcar, Avis, SicilyByCar, Sixt and Hertz.  Each car rental company has both their offices and the actual vehicles located in front of the terminal.  After getting your bags, simply walk out of the front of the terminal and look slightly to your right.  The car rental building is a small greyish building with the car rental companies' signs on top of the building.  The building is about 100 meters from the front of the terminal.

After locating your vehicle, simply drive away from the terminal and turn right on Viale Fortunato D'Amico for about 3/4ths of a km until you approach a large traffic circle.  Notice the multi-colored signage pointing you to various directions throughout the area.  Signs to Reggio, Catanzaro and Lamezia Terme will all be on the same post.  

If traveling to Lamezia Terme, at the roundabout, go under the bridge, and take the 4th exit onto SS18 (note that the 3rd exit also has a sign directing you to Lamezia Terme, but we recommend the 4th exit, the closer and more scenic of the two possibilities - there will be a little white sign on the post directing you to Lamezia Terme as well).  Take the exit and travel a few hundred meters.  The road will bend around to the left and you will drive about another 1 km.  Turn right on Viale San Bruno - SP100 as signs are posted still directing you to Lamezia Terme, drive 2.1 km until you come to another traffic circle.  There will be a Christian statue in the middle of the circle.  Turn right here and travel another 2.8 km until you "T" into SS18DRL (also known as Viale Guglielmo Marconi).  Turn right and travel into the heart of Lamezia Terme.

To know whether you need to re-fuel before returning your rental vehicle, you should check the fuel policy on the rental car.  All of the vehicles at the airport currently operate with a full-full fuel policy - meaning that you will pick up your rental car with a full tank, and it's your responsibility to return the rental vehicle with a full tank as well.  To re-fuel near the airport, a good choice is the Q8 Station that you will see right before the road bends around to the left as described above, and two blocks before the Bram Hotel as described below.  The Q8 is on the left-hand side, traveling from the airport into town.

Hotels and Restaurants Near the Lamezia Terme Airport.....

For you Lamezia Terme Airport travelers, we recommend a hotel not far from the airport called the Bram Hotel.  You will actually go past the Bram Hotel if you follow the directions at the top of this page.  After the road "bends around to the left" as mentioned above, you will drive a few hundred meters and the Bram will be on the left, right next to the road - two blocks from the Q8 petrol station mentioned above.  The hotel has a secure parking area.

The rooms nice and clean, and the folks running the hotel are very friendly.  Free Wi-Fi is offered at the hotel and the bathrooms are updated and clean as well.  Not far from the hotel is a GS market and there is another market behind the hotel as well.  There are a couple of small restaurants near the hotel, but we cannot attest to the quality of either.

Types of Rental Vehicles Available at the Lamezia Terme Airport.....

Car rental prices at the Lamezia Airport are not too bad.  You can spend a lot if you step up to a minivan or Mercedes luxury car, but most of the smaller vehicles are very affordable.  Peugots, Fords and Volkswagens are samplings of the brands of vehicles most rented, and manual shifts are generally preferred and hired more often than automatics.  Of course, automatics are available as well, just not in large quantities.  

At the Lamezia Terme train station a few hundred meters from the airport, rental cars are also available.  Europcar and Sixt each have an office and vehicles nearby.  Run a quote on our booking engine above to determine the cheapest.  If you need help with any of this, contact us via our link above and we'll see if we can help.  

Finally, we want to thank you so much for visiting our site.  We hope you learned something about renting a car at the Lamezia Terme Airport!!
