Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Florence Sixt rental car?
We try to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But getting ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Florence?
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Florence?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Florence is 20. Make sure to review Sixt's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Florence?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Florence. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Florence getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Italy?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Italy. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Florence. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Florence. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should get your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Sixt. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Florence?
Florence definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Florence Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
