Subject: Re: Renting a car in Italy

A big grazie to all who provided help with car rental in Italy. For those who may rent a car in the future, this is what I found thanks to the help. First, prices are very competitive at this time. Both AutoEurope and Kemwel are offering very similar prices and a guarantee to match any competing price. Second, if you reserve early there are several bonuses. AutoEurope is giving a discount of UP TO 15%. On top of that, they are giving a free upgrade. I have used the free upgrade to pay for an economy car (a bit small for my 6 foot frame), but I have a guaranteed upgrade to a compact car, which should fit my size better.

Like the airlines you must pay in advance to get the deal. Unlike the airlines you can cancel anytime and get a full refund.
