italy Car hire prices

Our holiday prices to Italy are for the villa rental only, but car hire can be arranged at an extra cost allowing guests to explore and enjoy their holiday to the full with maximum flexibility. For further information on the types of car available, and any age restrictions, please see the tables and Terms & Conditions below, or speak to one of our experienced Travel Experts.

Our car hire rates are tour operator rates and must be booked pre departure through our UK office; car hire company cardholders are not entitled to a further discount on our prices.
Prices are in £ sterling and are per car per week.
If your rental period crosses a date band, for example from June (Low Season) to July (High Season) then the applicable price for the whole rental period will be determined by the car pick-up date and low season price will apply. The same principle is valid when crossing from the high season dates to the low season ones.
Wherever possible the hire company will endeavour to supply the car that has been requested or provide a similar car from the same group. However, they do reserve the right to provide an alternative car as necessary and if it is of a lower group the appropriate refund will apply.

Important information- Abolition of Paper Counterpart Driver's license

Since 8 June 2015, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence is no longer valid or  issued by DVLA. Therefore  car hire companies may need you to consent to your licence records being accessed by a one-time use code or print out from ‘Share Driver’s Licence.Please see DVLA website:

HTTPS://WWW.GOV.UK/GOVERNMENT/NEWS/DRIVING-LICENCE-CHANGES

Please note when collecting your hire car, the main driver will be required to provide 3 forms of identification including their passport, driver's licence and a credit card all in the driver's name.

Car Hire companies have different criteria for providing infant/toddler seats. Please check with your Sales Consultant. This usually depends not only on the age of the infant/child, but also on their weight.

Due to limited availability, car seats should be requested at the time of booking and are payable locally. CV Villas cannot accept responsibility for car companies failing to supply the requested seats and it is the clients responsibility to ensure that child/infant seats are of a satisfactory size and condition prior to leaving the rental pick up location. If you are worried about the suitability of car seats, we strongly recommend that you bring your own. However please note that CV Villas cannot be held responsible if individual car fittings do not comply with child seats supplied by our clients nor can this eventuality be conditional upon the booking

Difficulties regarding car hire should be dealt with locally. If a refund is agreed locally, written agreement must be obtained from the car hire representative. The refund will then be made upon application to CV Villas in London, provided it is received within 28 days of return from the holiday.
