What you need to know
There is a lot of choice when it comes to hiring a car in Florence, with many top companies, such as Sixt, Thrifty, Hertz, Alamo and Enterprise, to choose from. You can use our booking tool to narrow your search, filtering by dates, price and what kind of car you’re looking for, so you know that you’re getting the best deal.
At Holiday Autos, we don’t charge any credit card fees or make you pay to amend or cancel your booking. We’re also on hand 24/7, should you run into any problems during your trip.
Where to pick up your car
If you’re flying into the city, then you’ll land at Florence Airport (FLR) in Peretola. Once you’ve collected your luggage, exit the terminal building and make your way to the bus stop just inside the short-term car park. Here you will catch a shuttle bus to the ‘Palagio degli Spini’, which is where the car rental desks are located.
Booking in advance means you’ll just need to locate the firm you booked with, sign your paperwork and then the keys are yours. It also means you're likely to get a better deal than waiting until you arrive at the airport to hire a car.
You will also be able to collect your car from the train station, if you’ve opted to travel by rail. Just check which will be most convenient for you when you book.
