Like other cities in South Carolina, Florence is a “zero tolerance” city regarding driving under the influence. The Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is 0.02% for those aged 21 or below and 0.08% for those above 21. An officer can pull you over anytime and conduct a breathalyzer test.
The speed limits in Florence are regulated to the same regulations as those in most Italian towns, with urban areas having limits of 31 mph and rural routes having limits of 56 mph. While bigger motorways often have speed limits of 80 mph, smaller highways typically have 68 mph speed limits. So when driving in Florence, look out for speed limit signs.
Florence is very strict with child passenger safety. If you are driving with your family, ensure that any infant in the car is secured in a rear-facing car seat. Kids aged four should be strapped in booster seats, while those aged eight or older and are at least 57" tall can be restrained by an adult safety belt.
The Piazza Ghiberti has a paid parking area if you're looking for a parking spot for your Florence car rental. Private garages provide the highest level of protection because they are indoors and have CCTV. It's perfect if you want to drive in from one of our villas in Florence for a few hours of shopping, dining, and sightseeing because most private garages are in the historical center. Street parking is an additional choice if you don't mind walking ten to twenty minutes to reach the historic center. Typically, the top locations are on the outskirts of Florence's city center. The few places that are available on the street are in high demand due to the lack of parking. Parking outside the city core and utilizing public transportation should be considerably simpler.

Cons:Gas tank only had 1/4 tank. Rep told me I could fill it up and get reimbursed if I brought it back with more which is not true. Car smelled like BO and ran very rough with a rattle. Rep at return site was unfriendly. Terrible experience that cost way too much.
Pros:That they called me before I arrived...to find no cars
Cons:Kayak allowed me to book a car through budget that wasn't available. The budget rental car and the 3rd party vendor (K), should have a better form of communication to ensure people do not reserve a rental car that is not available.
Pros:Ease of transaction
Cons:Price charged was more than chosen. Lengthy back and forth to get it resolved
Cons:Their website said they would be open until 9pm they closed at 6pm.

Cons:I made my reservation a week in advance & they called me at 8:30a on the morning I was to pick the car up to tell me nothing was available. I had to cancel my reservation. I called Enterprise directly & booked another location only to arrive at 12p for pick up but there were no cars available. Never again!!!
Cons:My rental pickup was for 2pm. The flight got in at 2 and the Alamo agent left before any customers got to the Alamo counter, even though he/she must have known there were people in that flight that booked rentals with Alamo. I spent over $200 extra having to rent through another company and will never use Alamo again. I also question Kayak’s booking platform for not flagging the early closure of Alamo rental countries at the airport.
One location in Florence
Cons:Better selection of cars...did not have Altima that I reserved, nor did they have any of that class...only choices were a Jetta that was very dirty and had bald tires, and a Corrolla that was ok...took the Corrolla despite the smaller size.
