Jamikins? Other Italy travelers? Need car info, please.

Jump to last reply

Now that I've got lodging in Italy in the fall, I need to book plane tix (hopefully this week) and rent a car. It's been 12 years since we last rented a car in Italy so I could really use some updated info.

The tentative plan is that we'll do the Turin and Bologna weeks (incl. day trips) by rail. Then we'll pick up a car in Bologna and use it for the Cortona week (also incl. day trips). Then, depending on our flight plans, we'll probably either drive from Cortona to the airport in Rome, drop the car off there and take an evening flight home or drop the car, stay overnight at an airport hotel and fly out the next day.

So car advice -- can anyone recommend a good, reputable car rental company that has an outlet in Bologna? Anything in particular I need to know or be cautious about? Any advice re car rentals in general? We just need a car that will take two adult passengers with suitcases and both of us are able to drive a standard.

Also, I believe we have to get temporary drivers' licences, so how do we go about doing that? I don't remember getting one last time we were there.

Many thanks
gtg
