Renting a new Fiat 500

We are flying into Cagliari Sardinia on the 14th of April and want to rent a new Fiat 500 for 1 week. Has anyone recently done this? Who did you rent from and did you have good results as far as rental and service and all. We live in Salem Oregon Thankyou

A Fiat 500 is nothing out of the ordinary in Italy. It is a quite common car at the rental agencies. Check www.autoeurope.com - Fiat 500's are listed as an option. However, this does not guarantee that you will get one. Just as when renting in the US, there is the "or similar" line that indicates that another car model of the same size and type might be substituted if one model is unavailable.

Hi there,

I agree with Cat7115; the Fiat 500 is the most common small rental car here and most companies offer them. I rented one last year through Europcar; they're quite good and if you specifically stipulate you want the 500 when you book, they'll keep one back for you; at least they did for me and I booked it for August, the busiest period

We rented one from Avis at Rome airport in September 2011 and rented it for 10 days in south of Italy(was about $600CAN). We didn't reserve it ahead of time(had booked a Fiat Panda originally). We asked if they had any available when we got there and they happened to.

We scratched it up a bit and the Avis guy never blinked an eye when he looked it over upon our return(we had coverage for damages).

We had thought about buying one in Canada but it didn't have enough pep on the highway although it's a fun, sporty little car, great for inner-city driving.
