Car Hire in Italy is generally expensive, while petrol is among the highest priced in Europe. Major international companies (Avis, Europcar, Hertz and Eurodollar) have rental officies at airports and within the city centre. Howecer, you may get a better deal by booking a car ahead through a travel agent or tour operator befor you leave. Local firms ( such as Maggiore ) are generally lot cheaper, but check that breakdown service and collision damage waiver are included in the hire price. rent.jpg (3601 byte)
Prospective renters should be aged 21 or over and have held a driving licence for at least one year. Theoretically you should also hold an international licence ( avilable from your national automobile association) but most car rental firms do not usually insist on this.
Accident rates on Italian roads are very high, so insure yourself to the hilt. It's also a good idea to join an internationally affilated automobile association ( such as AA in Britain or the AAA in USA). If you brak down in Italy, phone for ACI (italian Automobile Club) assistance.
