Bari Car Rental P/U and Drop-Off Questions

Jump to last reply

I've traveled overseas about a dozen times but have never rented a car, so I'd greatly appreciate some hand holding. With the following in mind, which pick up location should I choose for maximum efficiency?
Arriving Bari at 6pm, so we are staying the night in town (absolutely will not drive with no sleep, even if it is only one hour).
The next morning, we need to pick up a car. Avis looks cheapest and has an automatic. There are three Avis locations: airport, near train station, and a bit further afield. While driving out of town from the airport may be easiest, the office near the train station is only a 20 minute walk from our b&b. However, it looks to require a tricky drive out of town (maybe that is just Google Maps foolishness?). The one further afield would require a taxi, but would put us closer to the highway out of town.
There appears to be no penalty for different drop-off, so we would drop a week later at Bari airport. Dumb question: when the office is closed, how do we do a drop off? Our return flight leaves at 11:40am Sunday. so what time would you plan to do a drop off?
Thanks for any advice for first-time Italy drivers with anxiety!
