Car travel is becoming increasingly fashionable and is rapidly gaining momentum; thousands of independent travellers prefer the car to other means of transport. Rome is a city where such a trip will give you a feeling of special pleasure. Rent a car and hit the road. With a car you get full freedom of action and don't need to be attached to schedules of a tourist group, nor to a timetable for transport. Just sit down and go wherever you want, to a busy city centre or to a quiet suburb. Only in this way will you see Rome in its entire diversity.
A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.
In addition, the price depends on the point where you are planning to pick up the car. Pay attention to this to make the trip more advantageous.
You may find the cancellation form on our website. Standard conditions provides the following cancellation rules:
Please note that some special offers may change the cancellation policy; carefully read the terms and conditions to plan your vacation well.
Earlier we mentioned that the cost of rental even using the same one provider depends on the point where you pick up a car. For easy orientation, we've pinpointed all of them on the map; use it and save money.
You may take a car to Rome and return it to another city without any problems. Just search for suitable offers by specifying the return city you need. The search results will show only offers from those companies that allow return in another city. The indicated price already includes a one-way tariff.
When booking, you will be offered several options for car insurance. For a quiet trip, cars-scanner recommends that you take out a full insurance policy, which covers almost all possible damages. You may do this on our website or at the rental company office.
Each car has its own set of features, which are indicated in the insurance document. Be careful when taking it and read through the Insurance Cover section to insure yourself against further surprises. Example:
|Car rental company||Car class||Apx. Deposit amount|
|Mini / Economy||200-400 £|
|Compact / Standard||400-800 £|
|Fullsize / Premium||700+ £|

Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:
It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.
Do you like fast driving? Try not to do this in the city and its surroundings; proceedings with local road patrol service will not add charm to your vacation. Speed limits specified in Rome:
Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.
Local rental companies of Rome may require you to provide an international driving licence.
Planning your trip budget with cars-scanner is easy; when booking, you see the final price of renting a car. No additional fees are charged.
However, you may choose options that are not included in the basic rental package, for example, a child seat or additional ski equipment storage. You will find out their price in advance and will be able to pay on website, at the rental company office.
In most cases, you may safely cross borders of neighbouring countries in a rented car. But exceptions are also not uncommon; consult the Border Crossing section.
We care about your budget and in conjunction with rental companies of the city of Rome, we regularly make deals and launch special offers. Start monitoring prices for dates you are interested in right at the beginning of planning your trip, so you have a better chance to rent a car with the maximum benefit. The most reasonable time is 2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods and 3-6 months within the high season.
When you book, you fix the cost indicated on the current date. If the trip for some reason will not take place, you may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time.
