Florence, Italy: Hatchback Rental
The most popular models representing the mini, compact, and economy car segments in Florence are: Smart Car, Chevrolet Matiz, Kia Picanto, Citroen C1, Ford Ka, Hyundai Getz and others.

When hiring a budget hatchback, it is definitely worth saving on insurance deposit (franchise). Deposits on small cars in Italy vary from 100 to 1.000 euro/dollars. Check the rental conditions of each car in your selection to find a vehicle with a minimum deposit.

If your routes in Italy are foreseen to pass through hilly areas or mountains, it is not recommended to consider very small cars for rental. Their engines are usually insufficient for a confident driving on the roads with long or steep climbs.

At the rental office in Florence, consider to take a 'Breakdown Assistance' package or ask an officer for a contact data to use in case of a vehicle breakdown. Cheap cars are sometimes unpredictable in operation.

Upon receipt of the rental invoice, please check that all the information, as well as the final payment amount do match the data in your voucher. wishes you a safe and great trip to Florence!

Driving Advices for Italy – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
The majority of parking lots are equipped with special machines that accept payments. When entering them, drivers should receive a ticket that indicates the time of parking. This ticket should be installed on the inside of the windshield, or simply pressed by the janitor. People, who plan to use such parking lots, should get enough coins and money in small denominations – ticket machines do not give change.
If a parking lot is not equipped with a ticket machine, most probably it is operated by special cards. These cards are sold in newspaper and tobacco shops, some cafes, shops and hotels. The cards also need to be attached to a conspicuous place with the time that indicated the start of parking.
Underground parking lots are considered the most expensive ones. Therefore, there is almost always a free place in them. The high cost of such parking is also the result of the fact that cars are driven to the lot by the staff of the parking.
