I’ve been a big fan of Auto Europe for many years. In my first few visits years ago, I tried other rental companies in Italy but once I started using Auto Europe I was hooked. Two reasons: 1) the customer service is superb and efficient and 2) I’ve always found the lowest car rental rates with them. A few years ago, I was able to get the rates down even further by negotiating a 5% discount on Auto Europe rentals with Dream of Italy’s special discount – use the discount code: 72002261.
When you rent a car in Italy, do as I say, not as I do. A few times I have made the mistake of NOT renting a GPS unit. Bad idea that resulted in hours, in total, of getting lost. Always, always make sure you have a GPS unit, whether you bring it with you or rent one. Actually, this summer Auto Europe is offering a FREE GPS unit rental with any car rental of five days or longer! Sweet!
Another piece of advice from my many Italy road trips – always rent automatic! Okay, I do it because I don’t know how to drive a manual transmission and Italy (with its driving challenges as it is – though I LOVE driving there) isn’t where I want to learn. More often then not, I end up renting a Mercedes – a car I could never afford to own back home but an awesome ride either on the autostrada or winding country roads. Auto Europe is offering 15% off a Mercedes rental or rental or rental any other luxury car. It is your dream trip, drive your dream!
