Rental Car Options

Jump to last reply

We are traveling from Cinque Terre to Tuscany and staying in Tuscany for 7 nights. We then proceed to Venice after that.

Our base hotel is in a semirural location and is 4 km away from Terricciola and Peccioli, about 30 mins south of Pisa airport.

We will be renting a car to drive during that week we are in Tuscany.After Tuscany we need to get ourselves to Venice.

I am trying to figure out where it makes more sense to pick up the rental car and whether or not we return it at the same location we pick it up or at a different location and save the money of the train tickets. My specific questions are:

Do we rent a car in La Spezia or in Pisa? If we rent in La Spezia then we don't have to worry about train tickets to get to Pisa.

Do we keep the car to drive to Venice or would it be better to take the train from Pisa to Venice?

What is a good car rental provider in Europe?

What kind of insurance do I need to purchase when I rent the car?

Any help with this topic will be greatly apprecitated!
