    Travel Tips

    Many overseas rental agencies charge a premium for automatic cars. If you’re used to driving an automatic at home, we recommend renting an automatic. You’ll have enough on your mind without worrying about stalling the engine.

    An International Driving Permit (IDP) is required in Italy to rent a car along with your valid US license. Italy uses the metric system, so the speeds are different (kilometers per hour vs. miles per hour).
