Top tips for hiring a car in Italy

  • Renting a car in Italy affords travelers great flexibility for exploring the countryside. Drivers can enjoy a great variety of rural road trips taking in Italy’s spectacular scenery, from lakes to mountains to the coast. Some of the most popular self-drive routes include the Amalfi Coast from Naples to Sorrento, the Stevio Pass in South Tyrol, the Sabina foothills near Rome, and the rugged landscapes of Sicily.
  • When choosing to rent a car in Italy, it is important to be aware that national law states that a collision damage waiver and theft protection must be purchased directly from your rental agency. Not all companies provide inclusive prices, so be sure to double-check when comparing rates. Other insurances, however, may be purchased through a third party, such as a credit card provider.
  • Children under 5 ft (60 in) tall must be seated in an age-appropriate baby or child seat. This must always be positioned in the rear of the vehicle, never in the front seat. Most rental agencies will provide child seats for an additional fee, depending on the size; for example, Budget charges between €8.50 ($9.60) and €25 ($28) per day. Make sure to book this service in advance to guarantee availability. Otherwise, you will not be legally allowed to drive.
  • A popular option when renting a car in Italy is to travel into neighboring countries like Austria and France. Most multinational agencies, like Sixt, Avis, and Hertz, will allow this kind of cross-border travel without a problem. It is always worth checking in advance, however, especially when renting a high-end car or planning a road trip to Eastern European countries.
