Top tips for hiring a car in Germany

  • If you want to explore some of Germany’s neighboring countries like Austria, you can cross the border with your rental car. Depending on your rental company and from which city or airport you want to travel, crossing the border can be free or might cost up to €24 ($27) per day; the price will likely increase if you are traveling to a non-EU country. If you plan to cross over to Poland, you will have to check that your car model is accepted, as certain models are forbidden.
  • If you are bringing children to Germany, you will need to follow the child car seat laws. Children below 1.5 m (4 ft 10 in) in height are required to travel in a car seat in the rear of the car, unless they are babies, who may sit in the front seat facing backwards. You may rent a car seat from your car hire agency for around €15 ($17) a day.
  • The best way to discover the country is to rent a car in Germany. If you are planning a road trip, consider taking the 600 km (370 mi) "Germany Fairy Tale Road" from Hanau to Baunatal, where the Brothers Grimm stories took inspiration. Renting a sedan model will provide you with the most comfort for long journeys and is ideal for those with a lot of luggage.
  • If you plan to drive in some of Germany’s major cities, you will notice environmental "green zones" (or "umweltzonen"), which means that cars need to have a special sticker ("umweltplakette") for entry. These cost €6 ($6.79), and you will be fined without one.
