Hi everyone,I have a holiday home in Puglia
I have a holiday home in Puglia and I've toyed from time to time, with the idea of buying a cheap car to keep there. The current cost of car hire has made me revisit this notion (500 quid for three weeks!!!!) and so I thought I'd ask your advice.
It seems to me there is a bit of a catch 22 going on. You can't buy a car in Italy unless you're a resident, which I'm not. You also, can't buy a car in the UK and drive it to Italy, leaving it there, because it's full time home is supposed to be the country in which it is insured.
Am I correct in both of the above statements? Have any of you managed to get around these problems?
any advice you can offer will, as always be met with great appreciation.
