FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Italy Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Italy

Car Rental in Italy

Mamma mia! It's almost impossible to know where to start planning a trip to Italy. Crammed with culture, stunning architecture, beautiful landscapes, and delicious food, this European nation has a surprise waiting for you on every corner. Italy car rental will help you discover some of what this country has to offer. Learn how to rent a car in Italy and get ready to enjoy your vacation.

Which Italian cities should I visit?

How long is a piece of a string? Italy has so many beautiful, vibrant cities that it's very difficult to choose just a couple for a vacation. However, it's clear that the capital of Rome should be at the top of your list. You can find cheap car rentals at the Rome airport CIA, which will make it easy for you to explore the rest of the country.

Cultural vultures should try to get to the cities of Florence and Venice, packed with romantic architecture and beautiful artwork. Traveling in the winter? Drive your Italy car hire in the direction of the Alps, and don't miss out on the ski season. On the other hand, if what you're really looking for is an authentic Italian pizza, go south to Naples. There really is something for everyone in Italy!

Tip

It pays to find a cheap car hire in Italy if you're planning a multi-city trip – but remember that in Venice, the city of gondolas, you can't drive. Planning a day trip? Just leave your rental car in one of the garages on the outskirts of town and pick it up again on the way out.

***

Where can I find delicious Italian food?

Italians from every region love to argue that their town has the most delicious dishes – so why not explore a bit and decide for yourself? Take your rental car in Italy to the south if you're looking for pizza. In Naples, this dish is still made as it has been for generations: the dough is stretched super thin and topped with nothing more than tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. With cheap car rentals at the Bergamo airport, you can explore the north of Italy. Here you'll find fewer tomatoes and olive oil, and more cheese and cream. Make sure you've tried the local risotto before driving your best car rental in Italy out of the region.

Top historical monuments in Italy

Rome is one of the cities with the most beautiful monuments in the world. Rental cars in Italy are a great starting point, taking you to the Colosseum, St Peter's Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel. After that, use car hire in Italy to visit other beautiful sites, like the Duomo in Florence – the fourth-largest cathedral in the world – or the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

What's the best way to get around Italy?

Transport can be hit or miss depending on the region, so cheap car rentals in Italy are a reliable way of looking at the country. When you're in a city, you might find it easier to hop out of the vehicle. Traffic can be intense in the larger Italian cities, and the historic centers are usually small enough to cross on foot (or by gondola, in the case of Venice). However, if you're traveling between cities, car rentals in Italy are an unbeatable option.

Can I travel by car to Sicily?

Yes! There are regular ferry crossings between Naples and Palermo, Sicily, allowing you to use your car rentals in Italy to explore this famous island. Book in advance, because not all ferries are car friendly.

When should I book a rental car?

We at HAPPYCAR recommend booking in advance, to ensure that you find low cost car hire in Italy. We'll help you find the right car for you, ensuring that it fits your budget, size requirements, and other needs. The best car hire in Italy is out there, and we'll make sure you get it.

If finding the cheapest car hire in Italy isn't a concern for you, then don't worry. You'll be able to rent a car at the airport on arrival – but we always recommend booking in advance, to get your vacation off to a great start.

At HAPPYCAR, we're experts in car hire. As well as providing you with cheap car rentals in Italy, we've got the tools to get vehicles for you anywhere you go. If you're looking for cheap car rentals in Atlanta or cheap car rentals in Kauai, we'll help you find exactly what you need.
