Car Rental Types at the Abruzzo Airport.....

As in most other European towns, most of the cars hired out of airports are smallish, and often diesel.  And, for Americans who are used to automatic transmissions, many of the cars rented are standard shift.  So, fuel mileage will generally be better as a result.  You can always designate an automatic when running a booking request, so just watch for the options.  Remember, too, that GPS's are generally available at almost all locations.  They can be very helpful when navigating thru areas that you aren't familiar with.  Thanks for shoppping with Eurocar Rental and we hope you enjoy your rental car rental at the Pescara Airport.
