I'm thinking of renting a car on my upcoming trip to Italy and would like your thoughts on the terms of the rental since I've heard so many stories about needing to make sure we have adequate insurance coverage. Please let me know what you think... Thank you! (also I'm planning to use Auto Europe, unless there is a better company to use).
