Car Hire Recomendations


I am looking to rent a car in Sardinia from OLB airport and would like some advice on any reputable companies to use and which to avoid. Is it worth taking the damage insurance out in the UK or will this cause me problems when I refuse to pay for the vendors own insurance? Also I plan to hire a toddler car seat, does anyone have experience on renting a car seat and the seats condition?

Any advise is much appreciated

We used Casteldelmar as broker and we rented from Maggiore. We took full insurance from them.

Dont take the local insurance they will rob you-get it in the UK theyll cover everything theyll hit you with

I have used both Sardinya and Avis with no issues. I have taken out the local insurance but also used an annual policy. The advantage with the local insurance is that you can just walk away if something happens. With a policy bought in the UK the rental company will deduct the money from your deposit (which can be over 1000 Euros) and you have to claim it back. Taking the local insurance reduces the hold on your card.
