Hiring a car gives you priceless flexibility and independence, to let you go where you want, when you want. Italy is such a varied country that a hire-car means you can get so much more out of your holiday, by ‘Mixing & Matching’ hotels and regions as you please. Our Italian programme is truly flexible, giving you the opportunity to combine hotels in different parts of the same area or in completely different regions, staying for as many nights as you like in each.
*For excesses see below
We have included car hire in many of our holiday prices, wherever the car makes all the difference to your ability to get the very best out of those regions.
For bookings of 2-3 people we include an Economy car (Fiat Panda or similar), whilst for 4 people a medium range car is included in our prices. For larger parties minivans can be requested but not guaranteed. Upgrades to larger cars are available at a supplement. All vehicles normally have air-conditioning.
In the cities and some other regions such as the Amalfi Coast and some beach or lakeside resort hotels, a car adds little to the holiday, so here we have included airport transfers instead.
Should you prefer to have a private transfer rather than car hire or a coach transfer, then of course we can organise that for you instead. Please just give your Personal Travel Consultant a call on 01483 79 11 00 to discuss the various options.
Not included are:
Insurance is included with your car hire, however there are high excesses that apply to both Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection insurance. Cover for these excesses can be purchased locally and the cost starts at €22 per day. Please note that cover for excesses must be purchased before or at the time the vehicle is collected and cannot be purchased later.
Alternatively, Insurance4carhire offers single trip policies starting at £3.95 per day, or annual multi-trip policies for £39.99 to cover these excesses and much more. Speak to one of our Travel Consultants for more details.
Car Hire Terms and Conditions Cars returned 30 minutes or more later than the time collected incur a day’s extra rental at local rates. If travelling with a plastic card-licence, you will need to bring the paper section of your licence as well the card. You will also need both your licence and passport for identification purposes when taking possession of the vehicle. Cars must be returned to the place specified by the car rental company, otherwise parking charges will be charged to your credit card or deducted from your deposit. If a car in the group you require is not available, the car rental company reserves the right to supply a higher group vehicle at no extra charge, or in some cases, two smaller cars for multi-adult bookings.
