What You Need To Know Before Hiring In Italy
Italy is a great place to hire, there aren't too many bad reviews flying about, but as with any area there are some things that people are critical of. Just so you don't fall short of these we have detailed some of the most common complaints in the country revolving around car hire, so you know how to avoid them!
Budget Car Rental Companies = Long Waits -
As Italy can be quite an expensive place to hire, people often go for the budget rental option. This isn't always the best thing to do and it may be worth forking out that little bit extra as the budget car rental companies are often the ones with the longest wait, and it can take you a lot longer to get on your travel. This only really applies if you are looking to hire in a peak period though!
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.
Rome Fiumicino Airport - Other Useful Information
- Make sure that you obey the parking signs of Rome, the Italian police are very strict when it comes down to illegally park cars and even though it's a rental you will still have to pay the fee!
- There are a lot of toll roads in Italy, so be prepared to pay. The Autrostrada, Italian motorway, is one. You take a ticket when you enter the road and at the exit you have to pay, also make sure you avoid the Telepass lane!
- The biggest public car park in Rome is the Parcheggio Borghese, and it's open 24 hours. This may seem like silly advise at the moment, but after a few minutes of driving around Rome you will realise how useful it is due to the parking situation!
