Car Hire near Tavernelle Val di Pesa
Travelling by train to Florence and then bus to Tavernelle Val di Pesa. Once there will need a car to get about. Does anyone know of a local car hire company where we can book a hire car and return it to them locally. We will then catch the bus to Florence and then to Train to Rome.

I assume you're just trying to avoid at all costs the risk of driving in Florence?
Tavarnelle isn't a big center, so none of the big companies have offices there.... I wasn't able to find any local offices either. You have to head down a bit further to Poggibonsi or San Gimignano to find them - here are the ones I found:
If you're in Florence and just want to avoid the airport or the downtown offices, know that Maggiore has an office right outside of the main historical center on Viale Amendola - there is no way to risk going into the ZTL limited traffic area if you rent from there. Also, all of the ones with downtown locations have to transmit the license plates of cars returned there to the police so that you avoid any fines when returning the car. Just as additional information to know ;-)

Did my suggestions make sense? Tavarnelle is one of many towns to be reached from Florence, so maybe going to Poggibonsi should work better.

Contacted both by email replies with all info I needed and both can provide the service I require which is to deliver car to accommodation and pick up at end of hire.
I will be using one of them. Thanks for this information it was invaluable.

Hi Caroline Forbes. My suggestion would be to browse the various topics throughout this forum. That's what I did, and it helped tremendously!
