      Planning on renting a car

      Sardegna Jan 17, 2017 at 11:19 AM

      Hi there,
      We are planning on taking a ferry from mainland Italy to Olbia. From Olbia, we have to get to Palau, which is 45 minutes away.
      I was "strongly recommended" to rent a car. Does anyone know if we'd be better off renting a car in Olbia, or bringing one on the ferry from mainland Italy?
      I looked into renting a car in Olbia, and the prices were outrageous (we need one for 5 days.) Does anyone know which rental company I should look into, and how much we can expect to pay?

    • Staying at Sassari/Porto Torres

      by Koshka_ru Online Now Jul 15, 2014 at 10:37 PM

      We are going to Sardegna in the second half of August (19/8-2/9) and will be staying in agriturismo somewhere between Sassari and Porto Torres. It's not that close to the nearest beach (around 5-6 km) and that would be in Porto Torres, I assume.
      Can you please give us some advices about where to go to the beaches (we will be hiring a car, since we have our 3-years old daughter with us, so parking question is also very interesting).
      Something else to look at there in the neighbourhood? Something we should think about?

      Thank you for any information about the region!

    • Best way from Bosa To Sassari

      by jakata2 Online Now Mar 29, 2010 at 11:49 AM

      I have plans to go from Bosa to Sassari in the summer. My plan was to backtrack from Bosa to Alghero to the main bus stop and then catch a bus to Sassari. I see mention of trains from Alghero to Sassari. Also I think I have read there is a bus from Bosa directly to Sassari.

      Could anyone recommend the most direct route from Bosa to Sassari using buses or train? Convenience (changes, waiting, travel from bus to train, etc) not cost is the most important consideration although beauty of the trip is a consideration.

      Thank you for your attention to my inquiry.

    • What is the best way from Sassari to Palau

      by jakata2 Online Now Nov 20, 2009 at 1:02 PM

      I will be in Sassari next summer and plan to go from Sassari to Palau. It looks like there are 2 options. Take a bus from Sassari to Tempio Pausiana. Then from Tempio Pausiana to Palau. I do not understand the schedules very well but it looks like there are limited times. The other option I see is to take a train from Sassari to Olbia and then take a bus to Palau. I have travelled by train much in Italy so I am comfortable with that option but think it might be quite a bit longer because there might be a long wait for a bus in Olbia.

      Is there another way? Which is the fastest and most comfortable?

      Thank you for your attention to my inquiry.

    • Best way to get to Valledoria or Sassari

      by lynphilly Online Now Sep 10, 2009 at 2:57 AM

      We fly into Alghero airport at 09:50 and need to make our way to Valledoria. I understand there is only 1 bus in the morning to Valledoria that leaves at 10:15 which doesn't give us much time to get through customs etc and we shall probably miss this bus. I have been told that there are buses from AHO to Sassari and we can then hop on another bus to Valledoria. Can anyone tell me what times the buses leave AHO for Sassari after 10am and then how often do they run from Sassari to Valledoria?
