In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. It may possible to purchase additional insurance through the supplier, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover you while traveling through Germany.

Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental.

What is the fuel policy on my rental car?

We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refill the tank before you return. For a cheaper rate, you should find a gas station before you bring it back to the supplier. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Most suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of the bundle that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how far you want to drive and plan your trips ahead of time. Although most rental car providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement those miles can pile up and so can the extra cost.
