Car Rental Tip______________________________________________________________
Renting A Car in Italy. If you drive in urban areas at home, you can drive in Italy. Stick to well known rental companies. Rental prices are tricky - low prices can lead to add-ons.

We recommend the reputable car hire brokers Auto Europe and its subsidiary, Kemwel Discount Rentals. They allow you to compare companies, get zero deductible insurance if needed, cancel easily, and have 24/7 English customer service.  If you will be renting a car, please consider our links below (which do not affect the prices offered).
