If you want to see everything Dortmund has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Avis. Stop wasting your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. When you have access to your own vehicle, you can go anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your next vacation to Germany even more enjoyable with an Avis car rental.
With everything to do in and around the Dortmund region, you'll want to explore more than just the block your hotel is on while on your stay. Whether you have to try the restaurant that has gotten rave reviews across town or try some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own set of wheels to take in as much as you can while on your trip. Whatever you have planned in Dortmund, if you wish to get the most out of your visit, having your own automobile is a must.
We work with some of the finest companies in the business. Avis was the first rental car business to be located in an airport and have over seventy years of providing rentals to visitors from all over. With an assorted fleet of automobiles and over 5,000 locations globally, Avis is sure to give you a great experience from when you pick up your car to when you drop it off.
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Dortmund is 19. Make sure to check Avis's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Dortmund. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Dortmund getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Dortmund. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Dortmund. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Dortmund certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Dortmund, having your own auto lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to explore more of Germany, you can drive wherever you want to, without trying to wave down a cab or sign up for a ride-share.
Before your next getaway, book your Avis Dortmund rental car and take off to all the items on your itinerary. Go through CarRentals.com and hit the highway in Dortmund, Germany.
