TRAVEL NEWS


Rental Car Warning
Before you drive away from a rental car lot, do a walk around inspection and return to the desk with any notes you have made of dings, dents, scratches or any other damage. Have an agent amend your contract with these issues. And as you pull away from the rental car lot, pay close attention to the ride. Does the steering pull left or right, vibrate? With any issue you detect, return to the lot and request a new vehicle or an amendment to your contract of the issue.
According to News.com.au, a tourist visiting D.C. failed to inform Alamo of a crooked steering wheel and was later slapped with a $1,400 repair bill. It didn’t concern the man initially since the car “seemed to track consistently.” The damage recovery unit of Alamo’s parent company Enterprise deemed the driver responsible for the replacement of the vehicle’s rack and pinion system. The renter was also threatened with a bad credit agency mark and placed on Alamo’s “Do Not Rent” list if he didn’t pay up!
How can you protect your wallet?
Request a new vehicle if you must return with even a minor issue. Also, take date printed images before and after the rental period to prove you are not responsible for a preexisting issue.

Italy Crackdown
Rome won’t tolerate badly behaving tourists and locals. A new law is in effect that bans alcohol consumption and bathing in fountains. Organized pub crawls and boozy tours that are centered around drinking at breweries, pubs and wine bars are banned.
It’s prohibited to buy alcohol from a shop or drink in public from 10P-7A, and even clubs have to stop serving alcohol after 2A.
A good thing: The Centurions – those who dress up as ancient Roman soldiers found around tourist attractions in Rome are now forbidden from receiving money for posing for photos.
Ticket touts who often overcharge tourists for tours and attractions, promising them the chance to skip the queue, are also banned from selling or promoting tours, museums, theatre performances or any other activities.
Graffitiing the Unesco World Heritage-protected part of the city, flyering, stickering and dropping cigarette butts on the ground are all banned too.
______
Italy will increase the number of free entrance days at its museums from 12 to 20 – and many museums will introduce €2 tickets for 18 to 25-year-olds. Starting March 10 entrance to all state museums will be free, Tuesday to Sunday.
Previously state museums offered free admissions on the first Sunday of every month. That has been squashed as it creates long queues and overcrowding. If a museum has too many visitors arriving on free Sundays, like the Colosseum, it will be able to have free entrance perhaps in a weekday afternoon slot, to better manage the crowds.
