Europcar (via Kemwel) - rent GPS at pickup?

Jump to last reply

I booked a car rental in Italy with Europcar via Kemwel, picking up at the Pisa airport. I emailed Kemwel about a GPS rental, and from what I can tell, it would cost $40 just to ship and - since we leave next Saturday - may not get here in time anyway. (I had thought their GPS rental would be an add-on that we would pick up with the car - count this as the thing I've learned today!) In the States, I just use my phone; I'll have a small international data plan added to my phone for the trip, but would rather not spend the data to use it as a GPS. Is it an easy/likely thing to request a GPS rental at the time of car pickup? I tried to see if the Europcar web site would let me go ahead and add one to the rental, but it doesn't even recognize my reservation number (which is another thing I'm not sure whether I should be concerned about!). Of course we can use paper maps as well, but it certainly would be nice to have the GPS for backup driving around Tuscany.

Thanks in advance for your voices of experience!
