Our rental business has expanded in parallel with the development of tourism in Alghero, and has seen the participation of three generations of the Salaris family at the helm.
In 1934, Sardinia’s Riviera del Corallo (or ‘Coral Riviera’) could be reached only by the seaplanes of the Aerea Ala Littoria line, which made splash-downs at the seaplane base in the gulf of Porto Conte.
The passengers would then be taken to Alghero and Sassari on board our first Ansaldo, driven by family patriarch Roberto Salaris.
In the 1950s, the military airport at Fertilia was opened up to civil aviation, kick-starting the development of tourism in Alghero, which soon came to be regarded as the ‘Golden Gateway’ (Porta d’Oro) for tourism on the island of Sardinia.
During this period, the business was developed and expanded by Roberto’s son, Felice, who boosted the fleet with twenty new cars for rental by an ever-increasing numbers of customers. Felice also introduced the exclusive rental-with-driver service, which continues to this day and allows the most exacting of customers to be ferried around in style on board our luxury vehicles.
Since 1990, the company has been run by the latest generation of the family, in the form of Roberto and Nino Salaris. In the safe hands of these dynamic and highly professional youngsters, Nolauto Alghero offers services of unrivalled quality for individual customers, corporate clients and tour operators.
