Car rental advice & some useful information
Though the best time to visit Sardinia is from April-June, in case you are visiting in July or August, rent a car with air-conditioning as temperatures in these months can prove to be quiet bothersome. We insist that you rent a GPS too with your car hire booking as sign boards are almost non-existent in the city.
The island of Elmas is full of gems and historic sites, and the airport is about 15 minutes drive from the city and the Cagliari city’s historic center is about 7 km from the airport. And though the airport is served by buses to the city centre, they don’t cover the whole island; for the greatest freedom around the island you are better off with a car rental.
