Mandatory luggage

A warning triangle is compulsory, as well as a warning vest.

Car hire

Usually the driver must be at least 21 years of age, in possession of a valid Dutch driving licence (for at least one year). Here, there is also a jongebestuurderstoeslag and possibly more expensive insurance for young drivers. A credit card is required for rental car and pay a deposit.

Toll roads

Also in Italy, virtually all the motorways are toll roads. Also here hear cars to tolklasse 1. The VIA card can, in addition to the usual payment methods, shall be used to pay on the Italian toll roads.

Also important

Also in Italy there are zones, says the AA. “They are in a number of cities (including Rome and Florence) and on a number of islands of strength. Park your car at the edge of the village, to a high fine to avoid. A speed camera captures your license plate, so the fines end up just on your doormat.”
