We are delighted to be able to offer our customers cheap car hire rates from each of Italy's municipal airports plus the main international airport in Rome. Italy has 15 smaller airports that are used by the major budget airlines. In a number cases, the smaller airports are to be found a considerable distance from the cities that they are supposed to service and public transport to and from them can be extremely patchy. Begin your holiday in Italy with car rental provided by two of the country's leading car rental companies. We offer online bookings quoting discounted car hire in Italy. Both of our car rental suppliers have specialist staff at the end of the telephone for any extra queries that might arise before or after hiring a car.

Italy’s capital of Rome lies south of Tuscany and attracts visitors by the thousands for its 2000 years old history, its classical architecture, its atmospheric piazzas and its ubiquitous fountains.

The toe in the boot (the south east of Italy) is home to a thin population, wild animals and dense forest.
To the south of Italy are the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Sicily is volcanic as well as mountainous and consequently very fertile while Sardinia is also mountainous with lovely beaches and a number of captivating island escapes.
