Confusing car rental in Italy

Jump to last reply

I am researching a rental car in Italy for a week and one day in October. I have used the advice of former Fodorites and have referred to AutoEurope.it and Hertz.it both of which have considerably lower rates than their US counterparts. I tried to book a car on AutoEurope.it and was declined. I called the US AutoEurope and they would not book the Italian rate for me.

Then I called Hertz and explained the rates on the Hertz.it site were lower and asked to book that rate. The Hertz agent told me the Hertz.it rates can only be booked if I have an Italian address. She indicated I would be turned away from the counter if I booked the rate on line.

So now what? Can anyone tell me if I book on these Italian sites would I be declined at the pick up desk?

I also checked out economycarrentals.com whose prices seem to be lower than AutoEurope.com. Does economycarrentals.com use the major car rental companies and should I book through them or see if AutoEurope can price match?

I need an automatic from/to the Pisa Airport so the rates are off the charts but I want to find the best possible price. Please offer an opinion.

Thanks!
