Renting a car after train to Florence

Jump to last reply

Long story (involving Hertz letting me down on a rental) but, to cut to the chase, I'd like to understand the best option for renting a car in the Florence area after a train ride from Rome. The specific type of car we need (three rows of seats) seems to be only available from Florence (not Chiusi, etc). Our Tuscany accommodation is south of Florence so it's pretty easy to go all the way there, rather than renting from a smaller town between Rome and Florence.

But, we also have a couple of older folks (70+) in our party. They are pretty mobile but I'd like to minimize the hassle in Florence. I can grab a car, I assume, from close to the Florence train station but I am not sure about the implications with the restricted zone. I saw some comments suggestion that it's best to NOT rent from that location for this reason (not sure I understand why exactly, given that there's apparently a Hertz location there). The alternative is to get off the train and then travel (bus, taxi, etc) to Florence Airport. However, I'd really like to avoid that leg if possible.

Any suggestions on how I do this?

By the way, as I have been typing this my enthusiasm is waning - the deal I saw on that car ($194, BFEORE fees/taxes) explodes to almost $900 by the time all the various fees and taxes are paid. So, I am scrambling a little here :(
