Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Florence car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Florence.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Florence car rental.

Average prices in the city are much higher than the prices seen in the U.S., though they are right in line with the prices typically seen in Europe. Florence’s average petrol prices sit at around €1.63 ($1.86) per liter of gas. In terms of gallons, that comes out to an average cost of €6.17 ($7.02) per gallon of gas.

Streetside parking is scarce and competition for the few available spots is fierce. It will likely be much easier to park outside of the city center and then take public transport in.
