Average price of petrol and diesel in Palermo

Petrol stations are located on the outskirts of Palermo, so it is better not to go to the city centre with the empty tank. You are allowed to transport fuel in a canister in the city, so you may, for your own calmness, buy and fill a 10-litre container with the right kind of petrol or diesel.

Return in other city or country

To find out the possibility and cost of returning a rented car in another city, check the box "return to another place" and search for options. In the search results, only those rental companies will be displayed that allow you to return cars to another location. The price indicated on our website already includes the one-way tariff.

Do I have to pay additional local fees?

When you rent a car via the cars-scanner service, you get a full turnkey package without any additional fees. The only exception is the countries, in which a fee or a tax is required by law.

During the booking process, you will be offered to choose equipment that is not included in the standard package, for example, sports equipment storage. You will know the price immediately, but you should pay for it to the rental company upon receipt of a car.

Traffic violation fines

In Palermo, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in Palermo. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

Conditions for crossing borders with neighbouring countries

In order to not find yourself in a situation where you accidentally end up in a place you are not allowed to go, visit the Border Crossing section in the rental terms.

Travel restrictions

Speed limitations

All the rumours that travelling across Palermo by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:

Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.

Initially I booked a hire car from Gold Car for a holiday in Malta via Cars Scanner. My initial feedback is good: the website is clear, the price of the car hire from Gold Car beat all the opposition by miles. The telephone operator was always polite and helpful on the times I rang. The friction and unhappiness occurred post booking. 48 hours before our trip I realised I had misplaced the PIN number of the credit card. I rang both Gold Car (who were utterly useless and simply recommended taking out a vastly inflated insurance policy) and Cars Scanner who gave several sensible suggestions. Due to the dreadful experience of my communications with Gold Car I did not want to give them more money and agreed with Cars Scanner to move (at no extra charge - a kind concession) to Rhodium. My experience with Rhodium was the worst car hire experience in 30 years of hiring cars abroad (see separate review). My criticism of Cars Scanner is that they did not disclose that Gold Car and Rhodium are fundamentally the same company and it is improbable they did not know this given how easily I checked this upon our return plus when I completed the Cars Scanner feedback questionnaire I asked for someone to contact me and supply evidence to support a number of assertions made by staff at Rhodium regarding information I would have been given by them: to date no response from Cars Scanner.
