    Quick Primer on Italy Car Rental Insurance

    Car Rental in ItalyIt's important to keep your insurance paperwork and other documents in your Italy rental car at all times. We recommend that you keep these documents out of sight and remember to lock your car. Our vehicle rental rates in Italy include CDW, third party liability and theft protection. The standard deductible for our basic insurance coverage starts at €600 and this will apply regardless who is at fault for an accident. For most drivers in Italy we recommend our "no deductible" coverage option which reduces your liability to zero and includes roadside assistance. In our view your trip to Italy should include peace of mind and this affordable option provides just that. For reference here are the two options you'll commonly find in our booking engine for auto rentals in Italy:

    • Inclusive Rates - includes CDW and theft insurance with a deductible
    • No Deductible Rates - includes CDW and theft insurance with no deductible & roadside assistance
