We were warned prior that the said ‘driving standards’ do not match that of the UK but saying we have had a few close calls would be an understatement.
Today our fears came to life on a country windy lane in the hills near Pienza we travelled round a bend to a car just stopped in the road nothing around it, this resulted in us colliding into the rear of the stopped vehicle at around 30mph. I’m not doubting this is our fault btw. Some minor whiplash injuries to our party along with about 3k worth of damage to our 1 week old Mercedes Hire car that has 125km on the clock. Gutting aye!
We took the all singing and dancing insurance out with Avis- just wanted to know what they are likely to say/ anyone else had any exp with accidents? we rang them and they noted it but thinking we are going to have to leave super early now on departure as this could be a painful experience handing it back.
New bumper, bonnet, drivers wing and headlight is what looks like needs doing.
