There is no airport in Monaco, which, given Monaco is just over 2 km2 is probably a good thing though it does have a heliport if you're feeling flush. If you are travelling to Monaco by air you'll most likely be arriving at NIce Airport so most people find collecting a hire car from there more convenient.
We can offer car hire within Monaco as well, for those who've arrived by boat or train or indeed by helicopter transfer from Nice.
Car hire in Monaco follows the French trends so expect quite heavy excesses on the collision damage waivers - €1500 on a modest car is not at all unusual. Purchase excess insurance at the desk to cover the excess or other items not included in the waivers - tyres, wheels, windows etc and you can easily pay over €20 per day so purchase car hire excess insurance from under £2 per day through our comparison service instead.
Some hire firms do impose mileage restrictions, though curiously most of these restrictions only apply to French residents.
Most, if not all car hires in Monaco run fair fuel (pickup full, return full) policies.
