Italian Car Rentals

Italian Car Hire Information

While renting a car in Italy can be an uncomplicated issue, we advise inspecting your vehicle thoroughly for dents, scratches and other damage before you take possession of it.

This is good advice for any car rentals but especially so in Italy. Make sure all damages are noted on the rental papers you receive.

We have had very few complaints from our customers who rent cars in Italy but the two or three we have had over the years involved the condition of the cars.

Please use the booking engine to the right to locate a responsible car rental in Italy.

We've found CarTrawler to be the best rates around and you get the additional benefit of having someone to help you in case there ever is a problem.

Tour Clare has helped customers rent thousands of cars throughout Europe with CarTrawler over the last six years and we recommend them over any other company. Believe me, we've tried them all.

As it is in much of Europe, the legal limit for being intoxicated in Italy is .05 mg/ml.

In Italy, cars drive on the right side of the road so it is especially important to be very careful when turning left.

Seatbelts front and rear are required and speeding laws are strictly enforced with immediate fines. If you want to speed in Italy, you'll need to carry lots of Euros or be a very pretty girl.
