Travel Guide – Italy
A land of stunning scenery and considerable history. So much to see and do from the Lakes and mountains in the north to Sicily in the south. In between fascinating cities like Venice, Milan, Florence, Rome and Naples, historical sites like Pompeii and Vesuvius and the glorious countryside of Tuscany and Umbria. With a hire car you have the chance to see and experience as many of these places as you wish.
Excellent Range of Cars
Rental companies in Italy offer an excellent range of air-conditioned cars with something to suit to suit all needs and pockets. Economy cars – for the budget conscious and also great around the busy cities and tight country lanes. Compact, intermediate and estate cars and the fashionable mini-MPV – ideal for the family or for longer journeys and two-centre holidays. Practical 7 and 9 seater people-carriers– for the extended family or group. Convertibles to make the most of the sun. To assist further there are extended deals with ‘noexcess/deductible and FREE additional driver’ benefits.
Two Centre Holidays
Two-centre holidays are becoming very popular and Italy is a great place for this kind of break. How about Tuscany for relaxation and then on to Venice for some culture or romance? Or combine the beautiful Amalfi coast and the history of Rome? Or the peaceful Lakes and fashionable Milan? And there are many other possibilities. A one-way car rental is the easiest way of doing this. No need to book more planes and trains to travel between the centres. Just jump in the car and you get to see even more of Italy close-up on the journey. Best of all, there is usually no extra charge for a one-way hire!
Easy Collection and Drop-Off
Major car rental companies serve not only all major airports but also the smaller airports often favoured by the low-cost airlines. There are also many ofices at rail stations and in downtown locations. This makes it easy to do a city break for a few days before collecting your car for the rest of your holiday. Other than major airports, the full range of cars is available at few locations. If it is important that you need to have a people-carrier, convertible or luxury car, you should check where these are available before booking other travel arrangements. Please also bear in mind that many offices may not open on Saturday afternoon or all day Sunday.
