Confusing Care rental in Italy Continued . . . Locauto?

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all of you who have offered an opinion on my first post of this subject. Now, another question. I used some of you advice and contacted rentalcars.com to book a car. I called them (they had a US phone number even though they are located in the UK) to ask some questions and booked a car. I booked an automatic midsized car and elected to book a rate that has zero excess insurance. The renting company is a local company called Locauto. So. . . . anyone have any experience with Locauto?

The UK telephone helper asked for my country of residence and proceeded to quote me prices in US Dollars. When I told him i would rather pay in pounds, he looked those up as well and those prices were at least $400 less than the dollar quotes.

Now, my question is Locauto? Who are they and what should I expect? I know, I am used to renting from Hertz and am willing to step out of my comfort zone but I hope they are good? okay? reputable? Help. What have your experiences been with either rentalcars.com or Locauto? I hope that by paying for the zero deductible I should not have any problems if an accident were to occur.

Another company that keeps popping up is Maggiore. I have heard of them but never used them. Anyone have experience with them? I looks like they don't offer unlimited miles however.

Thanks for your wise answers.
