Do we dare pick up rental car in Palermo? Has anyone actually done this?

Jump to last reply

Everyone, especially on TripAdvisor forum, says to avoid city pick up and use the Palermo airport pick up, especially since our first stop with the rental car is Scopello. We would like to save time and it also saves about $60 to rent downtown instead of airport.

We will be picking up car on a Monday, mid-morning, in May. The rental locations downtown are Hertz (near Politeama) or Europcar (rail station). We are staying at Palazzo Pantaleo, closer to Politeama, but either downtown rental place would be more convenient than going to the airport.

Would love to hear from folks who may have actually picked up rental car downtown to see if it’s really true that we should not only avoid doing this -- due to lack of signage, one-way’s and crazy drivers -- but that it may be more time-consuming than taking the airport bus and picking up car at airport.
Appreciate the advice!
