There is no better way to see everything Cologne has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Avis rental car. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. When you have the keys to your own ride, you can drive anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Germany more enjoyable with an Avis car rental.
With everything to do in and around Cologne, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel during your stay. Whether you are hoping to have dinner at the restaurant that has received great reviews across town or see some of the local favorites, you'll need your own vehicle to explore as much as possible during your trip. Wherever you drive to in Cologne, if you want to get the most from your trip to the city, having access to your automobile is a must.
We work with some of the best companies in the industry. The first rent-a-car company located in an airport, Avis has over seventy years of providing cars to travelers from all over. With over five-thousand locations worldwide and a diverse fleet of autos, Avis is sure to offer you a great experience from start to finish.
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, reserving your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Cologne is 21. Take time to review Avis's policy, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Cologne. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Cologne getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Avis in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis requires a deposit when you book your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Avis. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Cologne certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Cologne, having access to your own vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to explore more of Germany, you can drive wherever you want to, without having to hanging out a stop waiting for the bus or signal for a taxicab.
Before your next trip, book your Avis Cologne rental car and take off to all the items on your itinerary at your leisure. Go with CarRentals.com and cruise the highway in Cologne, Germany.
