International driver's permit update

Two years ago in London, they would not rent without an IDP. In Milan, on the same trip, they asked for an IDP. After 15 minutes of friendly conversation (whimpering?), they let me have the car. I agree it is possible, but hardly predictable.

I wasn't planning to rent a car this year and only discovered the wine festival this week - too late to acquire an IDP. It would be a shame, after a 3-hour train ride, to not be able to visit the vineyards. Logrono is a small town, perhaps they will be more flexible.

Thanks for your input.
