Car Sharing

DSC_5881 pk

As the result of an agreement drawn up between AMAT (Council-controlled transport company of Palermo) and GESAP as part of cooperation programmes between the council-owned Enterprise in Palermo, today there is a Car Sharing service available at the Falcone-Borsellino airport offering an essential interchange point between aeroplanes and shared cars at the distinct financial advantage of the ordinary citizen and benefiting sustainable mobility.

The airport car park has to offer 6 parking bays in all and it is situated in the ARRIVALS zones, within the paying car park and near the pedestrian exit of the arrival zone on the air terminal. The car park can be used either ONE WAY or standard (picking up and dropping off the vehicle at the same car park).

Therefore, in order to get to the car park once you have left the air terminal, cross over the transit road for buses and taxes, turn right and 20 metres to your left, after entering the paying car park area, you will find the Car Sharing car park (there is an identifiable symbol on the parking bays).

You must follow the following procedure to collect your reserved car and leave the car park:

once you have booked and you wish to collect your car from the Car Sharing car park, you must first go to the Quick Parking Car Park checkout counter (located outside the air terminal in front of the exit (Arrivals) and have on you:

  • the car park entrance ticket for the booked car left inside by the previous customer;
  • the orange IO GUIDO badge to open the booked car;
  • the number plate of the car to be picked up;
  • finally, it might be necessary to show proof of having booked the car either on your smartphone (if you have one) or by getting in contact with the call centre (available 24 hours a day for this kind of verification).

On the other hand, if you wish to drop the car off, drive into the paying car park remembering to pick up an entrance ticket at the barrier. This entrance ticket must be left together with the car keys inside the glove box before closing the car door.

As far as booking the car for the car sharing scheme for this car park, the following procedure must be followed:

1) standard bookings: the same way as usual on the website www.carsharingpalermo.it or by getting in touch with the call centre at this shared cost number 848/810000;

2) ONE WAY bookings: like standard ones, but with the difference that it can be made no more than one hour before actually using it; on the other hand, if you want the security of an advance booking to or from the AIRPORT (e.g. 24 / 48 hours ahead of time, or even further ahead), you can book by email by writing to these addresses: m.marchese@amat.pa.it
