Sardinia offers ferry services on a daily basis, with which you are able to travel to mainland Italy and to some Corsica/Mainland France ports. Ferries run more frequently during the summer months. Please note that most car hire companies do not authorise the use of rental cars on ferries; therefore, we advise you to check with your local supplier beforehand.
