Alex- I created a shortcut to you post in the Europe Port forum section. You may get a response from someone there that can help.

Member "Hank" travels in Italy often and may know where you can find a rental in those ports. He may also be able to help with Villefranche.

Jim, I did see the post and did a little research with our favorite car rental companies. But the OP is correct that it seems like nobody is renting a 7 passenger van (I just looked at Civitavecchia where we rent quite often). In Italy, it is rare to see vans of that size. If it were me I would try an e-mail (or call) to Europcar or Hertz to see if they have vans that do not show on their web sites. However, even if you could find a van of that size the cost is going to be quite high.

dear hank,

thanks a lot for your comments - I have today requested avis to look into this matter closer, but my concern is that in villefrance sur mer we may not be able to find a rental van. keeping in mind that villefrance has alost 3 cruise ships a day on roads i still can not believe that there is no option. maybe we should open our own rental shop there.

regards alex

Getting a rental car in Villefranche can often be an issue. There is a local rental car company called Locauto.com that does deliver cars to the port. I just noticed that that company does rent 9 passenger vans so you might want to send them an e-mail.
