    Default Car rental prob

    I'm renting a minivan at Venice airport july-7 to be returned at Palermo airport July-31, but Magiorre and Hertz both refused our request for minivan drop off in Palermo ( they only offer smaller cars, but we are six people plus luggage ). Does anyone have any advice

    1000 grazie

    Default not sure how you can solve this car rental problem

    That's a real tough one - there are many hours of driving distance between Venice and Palermo - which being on the island of Sicily is almost like it was in another country! So I'm not surprised they would say no to a one-way minivan drop off there. They'll allow it for the smaller cars? Even with an extra fee they won't allow it? Will they allow one-way drop off elsewhere, like in the mainland?

    I am not sure what to recommend, other than contacting some smaller car rental agencies that might be more willing to say yes, if you pay a supplement for the service. Hope someone else can chime in and offer some suggestions!
