At Rome Fiumicino Airport, one way hires are popular for customers who will be needing to return their rented car to another Auto Europe branch, either within Rome, or to another Italian town or city. Customers should inform Auto Europe of their return location when choosing a one way hire, and should find out to where the vehicles are permitted to be driven.

If the license does not have photo, another form of identification, such as a passport, will be required. Ensure that an International Driving Permit is not required for your rental, and that you have a major credit card that will be accepted by Auto Europe for payment of the rental period.
Auto Europe’s vehicles are all divided into various car categories, and are therefore booked accordingly. The smallest of Auto Europe’s vehicles are hired from the Mini category, and may be similar to the Fiat 500 and Fiat Panda, which are vehicles ideal for just three or four passengers. These smaller cars will come with the most affordable rental prices, and will also be very light on fuel. Mini vehicles have air conditioning, and a manual (or stick-shift) transmission. On Auto Europe’s website, customers will be able to view all the vehicle categories available, and receive quotes for the vehicle types for which they are interested. Auto Europe’s prices include unlimited mileage, fire insurance, collision damage waiver, theft protection and value added tax.
