Customer questions about Germany car hire

Hi, I am looking at hiring a vehicle from Munich airport in December and wondered what deals you have at the moment. I would need to be able to take the car across the border into Austria as I am skiing there over the New Year. 

Hi, please can you confirm the dates you require the vehicle? I can then get a quote for you. I will also check the cross border travel terms & conditions.

Hiya, I planned to rent a car at cologne airport using my visa debit, is this possible? I do not have a credit card.

Hi, you can use a debit card to book online but when you pick up the car you must have a credit card in the main drivers name.

What time is the car hire open until in Munich, at the airport?

Hi, the rental agents operate a 24hr service at Munich airport to service flight arrivals.

Germany Mini Guide

If you have never perceived Germany to be a holiday destination, then you will sure to be amazed to find just what Germany has to offer the visitor. Germany is the kind of travel destination which can be visited the whole year round, a great choice of location for short breaks during the autumn and winter months, and longer stays during the summer. Its cities are famed for their beer festivals, lively local markets and impressive architecture.

Germany really has everything to offer from skiing in the Alps to luxury summer boating vacations on its waterways.  Stunning scenery can be found along the banks of the River Rhine and the River Moselle, with hidden villages tucked away in the hills just waiting to be found by those who are touring by car. Germany has a wide range of cultural influences and a long history, which can make it a stimulating and enthralling place to visit any time of the year.

Germany River Moselle

Indeed, most people never realise just how truly diverse Germany can be, mountains to the South boast some of the best skiing in Europe, in the North the clean and sandy beaches rival many of those found in more traditional European resort areas, the centre of Germany is a mixture of mountainous areas and forests and the modern attractions such as the adventure parks in the west are popular with families. Although it must be said that it is the cities of Germany which are in many ways are its truly hidden treasure. Many German cities have undergone huge amounts of redevelopment whilst managing to maintain a sense of their original character along with many of the original buildings of note.

Berlin is a truly cosmopolitan city in every way, containing a little of this and a little of that, German industrial flair mixed with traditional provincial charm. Berlin was reinvigorated when the Berlin Wall was brought down, and is now recognised as being one of the nightlife capitals of Europe and has undergone an impressive amount of redevelopment in the last decade. Offering a little more traditional taste of German culture, Hamburg is a boisterous harbour town that still maintains a high level of dock traffic to this day. From its impressively landscaped public parks to its lively nightlife, Hamburg is a town that can cater for every taste.

Berlin city Rooftop

Anyone looking for a new European destination to explore would do well to consider Germany Car Hire and the many incredible places which can be found within its borders. So much more than a selection of industrial towns and cities, a nation with a deep cultural heritage and fascinating history. For car hire in Hannover please see the city page.
