I am looking to book a car rental for 3-4 days to drive from Florence/Siena/Pisa/Sorrento. Avis goes to Sorrento, but so does Maggiore. Avis is $100 more than Maggiore. I have read old reviews, but nothing new. Anyone have any imput for me?
We rented a car from Maggiore in Catania a few years ago, the arrangements being made through a travel agent in Canada. We didn't specify but got a lovely little Alfa Romeo and the price was under $500 for 8 days. My husband was in heaven. Maggiore is quite a big car rental company in Italy and we found them easy to deal with.
Maggiore is one of the largest in Italy and is the affiliate of National/Alamo for Italy. I think they are ok.
Even the larger car rental companies can cause you problems. Pay attention to the paperwork when you pick the car up, and be sure all damage is noted. You can probably decline the extra insurance, as you are may well be covered by your credit card or by your home car insurance,so check that out.
