Best car hire companies in Rome, Italy
Which company to choose really depends on many factors. Prices change often so be sure to check the details of any offers (and check the small print). Booking online in advance can be the best way with discounts often possible.
As with renting a car in any city or location worldwide, ensure that:
- You carefully check the car and inform the car rental company or agency of any marks, dents and damage to the car BEFORE you drive it away. There should be a sheet that you sign which details any issues on any part of the care.
- Ensure you are clear on whether the car is a diesel or petrol (gasoline) fueled vehicle. It is amazing how many people fill it up with the wrong type of fuel.
- Ensure that you are clear or any damage excesses and also any requirements such as if you have to return the car full of fuel.
Ensure that you understands the driving rules in Rome and any other parts of Italy where you intend to drive in your car rental. Check speed limits for example and a good idea if to never drink and drive to ensure you meet any drink driving regulations. Not knowing the local rules and regulations for driving will not be an excuse if you did have an accident whilst driving in Italy.
