Car Rental Question

Does anyone know if you can rent a car in Rome and turn it in in Florence?

You can do it - but you need to tell them so when you reserve the car - and get the location(s) at which it can be turned in.

No problem. Go to any rental site and you have the option to return at alternate location. There is a small surcharge but they all allow it. I picked up a car in Florence and returned in Rome last year with no difficulty. Have fun driving in Rome - it's a blast

We never paid a surcharge when returning a car within the same country in Europe--Germany, Italy, France is where we've rented.

Just a word of caution, I pre-arranged a car rental through National for pick up in Rome and drop off in Venice and asked twice about a drop off fee and was told both times that there was none. I reserved and received a confirmation email showing all the charges but no drop off fee. I was of course happy to have this confirmed in writing. Of course I did not see the fine print in the email confirmation about "all international one way rentals will have a drop off fee". Needless to say, I got whacked with a large drop off fee and ended up paying double what I was quoted. I complained and was pointed to the fine print. I asked for my complaint to be fowarded to a manager and was promised a reply within 72 hours. Its been two weeks and still no reply even though I have sent polite reminders. In the last one I included a comment that I would be forced to caution other travellers on Fodors if I did not hear back. No response, so here is the caution.

I've probably made more than 100 rentals in Italy, France, and a few other European countries and picked up the car in one location and dropped it off in another (in the same country) and have never paid a penny. Yes, you do need to tell them where you want to drop off, but I've also changed my mind about that mid-trip, and as long as I called to notify the rental outfit it was never a problem and never paid a fee.
