What You Need To Know Before Hiring In Italy
Italy is a common place to be hiring a car, as public transport links across the country aren't the best and hiring a vehicle will allow you to see all the sights on offer on your own time. That being said, as so many people hire, there are also bad experiences and some things that are different when hiring a car in Italy to hiring a car in the UK, so to help you avoid any of the pitfalls or common complaints we have listed them here.
Budget Car Rental Companies = Long Waits -
Italy at times can be quite an expensive place to hire a car, so many people tend to go towards the budget rental companies, but this isn't always the best thing to do. Everyone wants to get a fantastic deal, so they book the lowest price possible which means queues can be extreme at times in peak periods. Paying just a few pounds extra for your rental could mean that your out of the airport and on your way in a lot less time.
Hard-Sell On Additional Extras -
It's been known that a few of the more budget suppliers in Italy often try and hard sell additional extras, meaning they will try push all the extra fees for products such as GPS, Car Seats and whatever excess policies they may be offering. These sometimes aren't necessary and for example things like a GPS you may be better off buying from the shop as it may work out cheaper!
Limited Traffic Zones (ZTL's) -
In Rome & Italy in general there are ZTL areas that are clearly sign posted, this means that at certain hours of the day traffic is closed to the general public and only permit holders can use the roads, and rental cars don't have permits. These areas are monitored by cameras, and if you drive in these areas when you aren't supposed to it will result in a fine!
International Driving Permits -
Sometimes having an international driving permit is essential! If you have a driving licence that is outside of the EU and you intend to drive in Italy then majority of the time you will be required to have an international driving permit, this is an official translation of your driving licence.
Please note, don't be scammed online! There are a lot of places that offer international driving permits at low prices, but these are typically scams, you need to ensure that you get it from the National Motoring Organisation.
