Some travelers find ducking in and out of traffic in big cities a little challenging. But in a small ride like a compact, cruising those Bari streets will be a cinch. Prefer to spend your getaway exploring the surrounding cliffs? Check out our range of full-size and mid-size SUVs. With room to move and more power under the hood, these bigger vehicles will make those scenic drives even more memorable. Ticking off all the activities and attractions that Bari is renowned for has never been easier with your own wheels.
You'll be pleased to hear that there's a great range of luxury rental vehicles on offer in Bari. What you end up opting for is largely dependent on your funds and what you're hoping to do. Specialty vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to comfort and class. If you want to indulge yourself, why not pick a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a flashy mid-sized sedan? Otherwise, if you're just after a set of wheels to get from A to B as cheaply as possible, go for an economy vehicle (or something else that won't break the bank).
From its alleys to its expressways, discovering Bari is a snap with your own rental car. But before you steer into the fast lane, here's what you need to know about cruising around this city:
In Bari, you'll have to stick to the right side. When traveling someplace new, it's always a good idea to rent a car with automatic transmission. That way, you can focus on the road and not worry about gear changes.
You'll find lots of places to park your car in Bari. Even in the middle of the action, there's usually a spot just where you need it.
As the population of Bari is roughly 277,400, you won't experience too much difficulty with traffic. However, major roads usually get busy before and after work hours, so you may want to avoid driving then.
There sure are. In Bari, speed limits range from 50 km/h to 130 km/h. Residential areas have a default speed limit of 50 km/h unless signed otherwise.
Generally, your rental company will charge the amount stated on the fine to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may provide your contact details to local authorities so they can send a fine directly to you.
As long as you have hands-free or Bluetooth functions enabled, you are able to use your cell phone while behind the wheel in Bari. But make sure you remain focused on the road.
In Bari, it is a fineable offence to drive with a BAC (blood alcohol content) higher than 0.05%. If you're planning to have a drink or two with lunch or dinner, you'd be wise to leave the car behind.
Turning on a red light isn't permitted in Bari. Always be watching for traffic signs and lights so you don't break any traffic laws.
In short, yes. Although, there are some exceptions for vehicles run by public transportation systems.
