a VirtualTourist member asked on Jan 17, 2016
We are planning 3 weeks for Sardinia. As this is a bit long, we wish to combine it with Corsica. Idea is to fly into Corsica and out of Sardinia (or vice versa). But can anyone please advice on the most logical thing to do with the rental car? Can we collect in Sardina and hand in in Corsica, to save the travel back time and ferry costs?
For short: travel-time is June '16, family of 4 (2 kids of 2 and 4 yrs), have own car-seats with us.
Thanks [VT member 93f85]!
One-way hire, if it is allowed, almost always carries a hefty premium.
Corsica is part of France, Sardinia is part of Italy. One-way hire with a drop-off in another country will potentially carry an even heftier premium, even if it is possible.
Hire companies may not be willing to allow their vehicles on a ferry.
The only way you can find out what is possible is to contact the individual hire company directly and ask. Even if a VT-er has done something similar in the past it does not mean that you will be able to do it. Conditions and company policies change.
The logical thing to do, imo, is to drop the Corsican hire car in Corsica, take the ferry and then pick up a Sardinian hire car for Sardinia.
