Car Rental - Though it is not recommended
that you drive through the city if you decide to rent
a care anyway there are at least three major companies
have rental car offices in the city Avis, Via Corelli
150 (tel: 02 5530 5276; website www.avis.com ), Hertz,
Piazza Duca D’Aosta (tel: 02 6698 5151; website:
www.hertz.com ) and Maggiore, Via Canonica 64 (tel:
02 311 029). Avis rental is also available at Stazione
Centrale, Galleria delle Carrozze (tel: 02 669 0280)
and at Piazza Diaz, near the Duomo (tel: 02 863 494).
The national booking line for Avis car rentals is
199 100 133.
It is recommended that you ask for a second set of
keys from the rental car agency. Just in case you
lose one or who knows what might happen you are at
least prepared if you have two sets. When you are
returning the car at the end of the trip you will
want to make sure you have all of your personal belongings
out of the car. The Rental Agencies
are not responsible for lost items.
For special upgrades and rates be sure to compare
all prices from the different Milan Car Rental
Agencies. Sometimes you can receive special
package deals that cover room, car rental and flights.
Check with your travel agent also on the best prices.
Make sure you have ample maps for your travelling
purposes. Have them highlighted even before you set
out on your sight seeing excursions. You will also
wish to check with your hotel for parking arrangements
even before you decide to rent a car. Parking in Milan
can be very expensive and you definitely don’t
want to get a ticket on your trip. Always follow the
rules of the road, obey all traffic signs and you
should be safe and have a great trip.
