Car hire. Hi viz jacket

We are renting a car in Italy and we are taking our own hi viz jackets which are required by law.

I asked our hire company if they supply them but they have sidestepped the answer, I guess they sell them at an inflated price knowing their hirer is captured.

Just mentioning this as a forethought for other travellers.

They have always been in the car when I have rented in Italy or France.

They are usually located in theboot/ tunk of a car . You only have to put 1 on if in an accident and you are standing by the road / car. the only llace that diddn't ave one when I rented was Naples airport - I mentioned this and I was given one - from another car and no have never even seen a charge / sale notice for them either.

I also have never seen a sign at a rental agency offering to sell hi-vis jackets, or any other safety item.
