Good car with awesome MPG.Pros: - Offered an option for an automatic for the same price as reserved manual car, made wife happy about that. - Was offered a hybrid, which was even better considering gas prices in Europe - Fast serviceCons: - Office location was a bit off from map. - Walked further down the street, with vague directions, on where the garage is to physically pick-up the vehicle - Garage didn't have English-speaking people, so it was a lot of sign language

2.0 Mediocre30 Oct 2019
Pros: no. They original girl that assisted me was kind but made a huge mistake. She added insurance without informing me. When I called to let them know they said I had to talk to the manager. I went to talk to the manager, he began this conversation with harassment. He grilled me and accused me of the strangest things. He pulled out the girl and in front of me screamed that I was accusing her of lying and that I was telling him he had to fire her. I thought this was crazy because I did not believe she did anything intentionally. He then said what I was saying is that she committed fraud and I was accusing her of scamming me. The girl was crying and I refused to accuse her of any such thing. It was a mistake in my opinion. I was quite tired from my travels when I registered with her for the car. He continued to insist that I was accusing her of fraud and I needed to say it out loud. At this point, I felt so bad for the girl that I kept apologizing to her, but I would not say that I knew she put on the insurance because I would not have done that. I had a budget to stick to and I could not afford it. This whole scene was done in front of all the other employees and anyone walking by in the airport. Unfortunately, I suffer from PTSD and I could not take anymore , I was finding it difficult to breathe. My daughter interrupted the scene and I had to walk out...I could not stop myself from crying. I walked out and when I walked back in, he started to apologize and told me that he knew that the girl did not follow protocol and he explained why he knew. (something about no highlights on the costs on the receipt.) He even hugged me twice...I did not like this at all. He was abusive and then actually hugged me. He said that he would fix the problem then gave me his email to contact him. To this day he is not responding to resolve the problem. I am very angry and am considering taking my daughter's recording of the scene to social media.

2.0 Mediocre24 May 2018
Cons: In the dark garage with narrow parking space I found 3 damages (the staff marked 2 into the form saying that the one is regular scratches not considered / reported as damage). 0 damages were indicated in the form from hertz. Car wasn’t dirty, but covered by dust (even inside all over the instrument panel). Trip went well but during drop-off at Bologna an arogant staff reported a scratched plastic wheel cover - I didn’t even park close to the pavement so I couldn’t scratch it.. but I was unable to see this damage during car pick-up becuase of above reasons and there is also huge difference of judging the vehicle condition between the locations. So what is not a problem in Florence seems to be a problem in Bologna. Didn’t agree with my tesponsibility and awaiting contact back to find a solution. Bad experience
7.6 Good9 Oct 2017
Wasn't sure what to expect...Pros: The facility was clean. Charges were clearly explained. My questions were answeredCons: There was no windshield washer fluid in the car. This should have been checked before I got the car. There was a long-ish wait to pick up my car.

Charged extraPros: Good pickup, clean car, as expected until...Cons: They charged is EUR 50 extra when we returned the car...apparently the guy at the drop off found a bit of dirt on the back seats...which probably came from our 6 and 4 year olds putting their shoes on the seat when climbing into the car. This was a real surprise to us, and too late for us to pass a quick hover on the seat. What a shame that they don't tell you in advance....will not go back to Hertz, never had this issue with Avis or Europcar!

Hard to find rental booth. Car greatPros: Car was new, no problems with the car. Service was helpful.Cons: Hard to find the booth for dollar. There was not a booth for dollar. Had to find out that dollar uses thrifty booth. And hertz, thrifty and dollar are the same company. The kayak website gives you an option to buy an insurance for the rental. That is not valid for the car. Wasted money. Had to buy extra insurance at the rental.

Pros: Well..we did get a car.Cons: Pick up at the Bologna airport was brutal. We were the third in line, and it took us 90 minutes. Then walk outside for 200-300 yards to a confusing car lot situation. Wandered inside the fenced area for 10 minutes before we stumbled on the Budget office. Then it took another 20 minutes ....

Didn’t have the car I reservedCons: Didn’t have the car I reserved so instead of the $800 bill it was $3000 for an unknowing upgrade
4.8 Okay26 Aug 2018
Cons: I booked a 9 seater van. The lady at the counter refused to acknowledge the booking. She said that she don't know Kayak or CarRentals.com. She said that there is no car available as the booking was not done directly with Budget.com. It took me almost 40 minutes of negotiation and after that she gave me a 7 seater van, which I took it on no choice basis. This is the first time that such horrible experience has happened. I sincerely hope that Kayak will take up the matter with Budget and they can train the staff at their Bergamo (Italy) airport counter. I expect a compensation for the discomfort due to this attitude of the staff at the counter or some discount as I was given a smaller van.
4.4 Okay11 May 2018
DeceivedPros: The car was decent to drive around.Cons: I was shown a rate in dollars, but when I received the final bill it was in Euros which increased the price by fifty dollars. When I booked the car through kayak, it was only supposed to be like $24 per day, but in the end cost me nearly $95 per day.

very efficient car rentalPros: the car was clean and only had 8,000 miles on it. we asked for an intermediate car and received a Mercedes-Benz a160 which was a nice driving car. We had 4 passengers and the trunk space was a little small for luggage but we were able to manage as we only had 4 carryon bags and 4 backpacks. All in all it worked out well during our 30 day travel in Italy.Cons: the trunk was too small for 4 people's bags.
4.8 Okay16 Jun 2017
rip off extra costings v those advertisedCons: pricing was far far higher than advertised when taxes and mandatory extras were added in... this should be made clear up front, its false advertising to show a price that is in effect almost 1/2 the actual cost....

Top tips for hiring a car in Bologna

  • The beautiful city of Bologna has plenty to offer, from museums to the scenic Old Town and the breathtaking Italian landscape. With a hire car, you will have the great opportunity to explore every dream destination without having to rely on unpredictable and often delayed public transport or expensive cabs. Also bear in mind that the attractions in Bologna are spread out all over the city and, therefore, are most conveniently reached by car.
  • Head directly to the hire car agencies located at Bologna Airport to pick up a car upon arrival in the Italian city. The desks are located in the terminal at ground floor level and include international companies like Europcar, Hertz, or Sixt, plus multiple Italian agencies. Driving via the Tangenziale Nord di Bologna, travelers will be inside the city in about 20 minutes.
  • Italians have a reputation for driving rather aggressively and not adhering to street regulations, but by driving defensively and paying extra attention when entering the city, there should be no problems. Always adhere to the speed limits, as the police specifically like to fish out tourists and fines can be hefty. Turn signals are sparingly used in Italy; in roundabouts, drivers often do not signal when leaving it, but rather use their left blinker to indicate they are still staying inside, which can be confusing at first.
  • Bologna is among the cities which operate ZTL (zona traffico limitato), which means traffic is regulated in some areas and cars may not enter at specific times, usually between 7 am and 8 pm every day. There are traffic cameras in place that scan all cars, and entering a zone at the wrong time without a registered plate can lead to fines. Ask your hotel or hire car provider about the limited zones and make sure not to enter them.

  • Italian cities are very old and have many narrow lanes, which is why a compact car like a Fiat 500 is a good choice for cruising through the city when not so much space is needed. Such a small car will also require less gas, which is quite expensive in Europe, and will also fit into more parking spaces.

  • Speed limits are in km/h and must be adhered to at all times – even if other cars go faster. 50 km/h (31 mph) is allowed inside the city, unless otherwise indicated, and 90 km/h (56 mph) is allowed on rural roads (unless the road conditions are not good). On the highways, drivers can speed up to 130 km/h (80 mph) -- and remember to stay in the right lane, as the left one is used only for passing.

  • Petrol is quite pricey in Italy and the average liter of petrol costs around €1.63 (or $1.86, which is $7.44 per gallon). Petrolstations alongside the highway tend to be more expensive and stations inside the city often close at 10pm, so bear that in mind and refill ahead of time. Also note that usually you pay inside the station at the counter after the refill, and cards are widely accepted.

  • Street parking in Bologna is possible around the historic center (which is a ZTL and only people with a permit can enter) and is metered by the hour. It is advised to either choose from parking lots close to the historic center or ones further outside of the city.
