There is a great website that covers many aspects of car rental in Italy. It is operated by the American couple Martha and Mike, who have 25 years of experience in car rental in Italy. This page evaluates 45 car rentals in Italy by level of risk. They consider Sicily by car to be “very risky.” In April 2018, I rented a car from a depot in Hertz in Catania. I booked and paid online months in advance because I thought there would be no extra charges.
I avoided renting the airport because the airport rental charges extra. It was a mistake. The depot (on Via Matteo Renato Imbriani) was on a busy street. When I picked up the car, it was double-parked and was blocking traffic. The staff spoke little English, I spoke little Italian, and I was confused and got just a brief explanation of the controls, but not how to use navigation (GPS). I rented an 8-seatEr Mercedes Van per rentalcars.com (in my reservation listed as Thrifty) in Florence, the rental fee was paid in full. When we arrived, the papers said Sicily by car. I got the keys and drove the van to the office to pick up our party. The teleporter was very damaged, a door was knocked down and looked horrible and had scratches everywhere, so I went back in there to let it be known and make sure we wouldn`t be responsible. The guy behind the counter didn`t come out of his seat but didn`t say to worry and that all the damage was marked on the waiver and showed me some marks and numbers he marked on the form where the damage was.
It was late at night and we just wanted to go to our place so I wasn`t worried. The waiver also said it had a full throttle. At the wheel, I noticed that the tank was only full 3/4, oh good. On the way back, our flight opened in front of the office, so we had to leave the car on the property. I called when we got home and was told everything was fine. Then, two months later, they charged me more than 600 euros for the damage they would have caused. I also noticed other inexplicable charges on my credit card for a total amount of $200. Watch out, these guys are crooks, they avoid the plague.
I denied the fees and sent the rental form marked with the damage, this is the response I received from them: Thanks for your report The2ps and good luck with the recovery of the initial rent. “Thanks to the airport teleportation, we travelled in half an hour… Convenient location of both the rental desk and the point of withdrawal, just in front of the exit of the arrivals hall. The rental car was ready and in good condition… All in all, a good experience, great value for money and a quick and simple online booking experience. In addition, there are complaints about waiting times of up to two and a half hours at the at-office rental desk for under-occupancy at the counter. Never rent a car from Sicily by car in Italy, I had a very bad experience with them. Rude staff at pick-and-drop-point car at Venice airport.
After returning from Italy, 2 months later, I received an email from SBC , mentioning that they have 61 x 2 times
