Although Forli is not a very large airport, cars from Avis should be hired in advance, as the right car for your business or holiday trip may not be available upon your arrival at the airport. Advanced reservations are most easily achieved online, from one of the many websites which support Avis car rental reservations. Whilst arranging your vehicle, remember to include any optional items of equipment necessary, such as a child seat or satellite navigation system, and add insurance options to your rental quote if they are not included. A child seat will be required for all children four years of age or under, as in Italy, all passengers of a vehicle should wear seatbelts. A navigation system is ideal for anyone who would like to travel more easily to a variety of destinations, and the insurances available from Avis include mandatory theft protection and optional collision damage waiver. If you don’t have your own insurance, purchase these locally from Avis to reduce or even remove the insurance excess charges.
Avis hand controls for disabled drivers should also be reserved in advance, as the device is only available on certain types of automatic vehicles, and will need to be fitted prior to your arrival at Forli Airport.

Select Avis one way hire options for your vehicle if you won’t be returning to Forli Airport. One way hires are when you choose a different return location to the one from where you will be collecting the vehicle.

Avis Italy, and Avis at Forli Airport, have rental conditions similar to most other major car hire companies. The primary renter will need to be 21 years of age or older, and will need to show a valid drivers license upon collection of the vehicle. The license must have been held for a minimum period of one year prior to the rental date. A young driver fee will apply to customers between the ages of 21 and 25, and the charges are 15.00 Euro per day of car hire, up until a maximum of 225.00 Euro. Younger renters may also not hire the following vehicle categories from Avis – H (Fullsize), I (Intermediate), J (Economy), L (Premium) and N (Convertible).

In Italy, smaller vehicle models hired may be similar to the Fiat Panda 1.2 Dynamic, New Corsa 1.2 16V Enjoy, Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 and the Nissan Micra 1.2. They have three or five doors, a manual transmission, space for an item or two of luggage and usually offer air conditioning. They can also seat four or five passengers, but families may find them to be a bit cramped. A fine balance between space and rental prices should be considered. A car which is too small may cause the trip to be unpleasant, but a larger vehicle will be more expensive. Cars seating five more comfortably include the Mercedes Classe A180, Alfa Romeo 159 1.9, BMW Series 320D Eletta, Ford Focus 1.6 and the Volkswagen Passat 1.9 Wagon. The wagon vehicles mentioned have room for five or more luggage items, and are great for all driving scenarios.
