car rental question

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to rent a car for 6 days in October in Puglia. Called autoeurope in the US and there is no way I can convince them to give me the prices I see on the Italian site. They are telling me they don't even see the cars that I see on the Italian site on their list. My question is: Is there some reason I should not book directly with AutoEurope Italia on their website? I don't speak Italian but have no problem understanding/navigating the site (including excess liability waiver).
Also, for 4 people and luggage (transporting luggage from Bari Airport to masseria, and then to Lecce) what would be the minimum size car to rent? We will probably have 4 regular size suitcases and 2 carry ons. (We'll be traveling for nearly 4 weeks ...) I'm thinking of a Fiat Ulysse or Citroen C8... both 7 passenger vans. Also considering 2 cars for luggage, and then using one car for day trips. I would be very grateful for any advice you may have.
