PLEASE NOTE

Be careful on the road. Fines in Italy are quite high.

In Italy, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in Italy. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

Toll roads in Italy

You may use cash and cards to pay for toll roads. Local drivers equip vehicles with special readers, so beware; you may not drive in the same way.

We will replace your booking free of charge, if you contact us at least 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

When traveling to Milan, my neighbor advised me to rent a car and use this site. He himself was very pleased. As for me, I chose the auto economy class, which was just right for me. Search convenient, immediately show relevant to me suggestions. When booking, you can specify where to pick up and return the car. The most important thing for a beginner is that you can read about all the nuances of the lease and the documents that will be required on the site. I was satisfied.

I've used this resource for car rental for several times and it has never let me down. It always select very good options. I like a large package of included insurance services. It differs significantly from other aggregators by the quality of operation. Several times I've compared and rechecked them. This search engine is the most accurate.

I always use carscanner when I need to rent a car. I’ve compared prices on various other websites and carscanner seems to offer the most competitive prices on the market. That combined with helpful customer service means I’ll keep returning again and again.
