Hiring a car in Innsbruck but going to Italy

Hi

We are skiing in Italy in March 2018 and we will need a car. One of the options is to fly into Innsbruck. Is there likely to be a problem taking a car into Italy? I know I will need to double check with the company I use but just wondered if any had done it and if it was relatively hassle free.

Thanks

Hi,

Should not be a problem. Higher end/more expensive models of Mercedes, BMW and the like are not allowed to go into Italy from Austria. We've rented in Germany many times and driven to the Italian Dolomites. Just tell the rental car co. before confirming your car.

Also read up on the Italian 'ZTL' which are the bane of motorists driving in built-up areas in Italy
