Everything you need to know before departing from or arriving to Trapani Airport

Transportation from Trapani Airport

Krystof Hajek updated 23. 1. 2024

The airport is ideally located for trips around Sicily by car, but is also connected to bus services.

Car rental

If you want to travel around Sicily thoroughly, renting a car is the most convenient mode of transport. There are several car rental branches right in the arrivals area of the terminal, but always book online in advance.

You can use the comparison tool to compare all available car rental companies Rentalcars.com, which will show you all the offers and you can then book your car through it.

Weekly rental prices vary between 150 eur and 320 eur depending on the size of the car and the season.

Bus to Trapani

There are several bus stops right outside the airport for bus companies that operate routes to the following cities. The stops cannot be missed, they are located immediately at the exit/entrance.

AST operates to Trapani at irregular intervals corresponding to flight traffic, however buses usually run at least once an hour. In Trapani, buses stop directly at the port and at the bus station (see map of bus stops).
