Need Help with Car Rentals

Now that I finally completed my itinerary I need help renting a car. Most Agencies say there is a minimum of 3 day rentals and I only need a car in Tuscany for 2! If we pay for 3 days the rate comes out to $100 a day. Any suggestions?

There is no good solution to this problem. Look into rail'n'drive options on www.raileurope.com

Best wishes,

Rex

hi there,
only chance will be to rent it local. Ask Your hotel when arriving, or go to the next retal office at the airport/trainstation - it is no problem to get a car for 2 days.
enjoy Tuscany

Sherry: We just did a three day car rental in Italy for our trip next month through Auto Europe for just over $200. Picking the car up in Rome and dropping it off in Venice.

Thanks everyone for your responses - we really can only use the car for two days. We are picking it up in Florence to drive through some tuscan towns and then we are on our way to Venice two days later. $85-100 a day seems steep to me.

It is steep. Do you have no other train travel planned - - or could you use some? That's why I suggested the rail'n'drive.

Paula,
I am sorry if I was not clear - I guess I am just not getting the info I had hoped for. All the rental agencies I have contacted require a three day rental therefore bringing the $ too high for just two days. Budget did not quote me anything close ti what sarah got - so I was hoping there was somwhere else to look. The hotel Bellettini told me that they can arrange for a rental car when we arrive, but I am afraid the rates will be too high unless we reserve in advance. Bottom line - I am hoping to spend around $150 for two days!
