- Car Hire Italy
Flying into Pisa in late June and have been looking at car hire, perhaps ts a bit late in the day hence prices I’m being quoted £670 for a fortnight for a astra(ish) estate. 2 named drivers both (sadly) over 40.Posted 4 years ago
Never been before so was wonderng if this a reasonable price?martinhutchSubscriber
Sounds reasonable. Check with a couple of providers if you’re not sure – we used Holiday Autos in the end and their service was good, even when some idiot managed to lose the credit card needed to pick the damn thing up. 😳
Make sure you have camera ready to check for dents and scratches, and photograph them all with your phone. Amazing how many we found, even on a newish vehicle.Posted 4 years agohammeriteMember
Check for things like out of hours collection charges if you are arriving early/late or on a Sunday. Where we went Holiday Autos were trying to charge an out of hours charge, none of the providers at the airport charged though.
Also try to use a Cashback site, can sometimes get some money back, think we got 8% back.Posted 4 years agoBlobOnAStickSubscriber
Driving in Italy?
Read the overtaking thread when you get back and laugh heartiously at the petty-minded British attitudes……… 😉
I’ve done a lot of driving/car hiring over there, I’d say that the cheaper companies are always looking out to charge extras (a great deal of attention paid to condition of the returned motor – more fool you if you didn’t check when you picked it up!) In the end I always went for the more expensive companies for the peace of mind that there wouldn’t be any surprise charges.
I don’t think this is particular to Italy, I’ve also encountered similar in Malta and Cyprus with cheap car hirers.Posted 4 years ago
