If you want to see everything Berlin has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Budget. Don't spend time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have the keys to your own vehicle, you can drive anywhere you want to go, when you want. Make your next trip to Germany even more enjoyable with a Budget car rental.
With everything to do in and around the Berlin area, you'll be wanting to take in more than the block your hotel is on while on your trip. Whether you are hoping to try that well-reviewed bistro across town or try some of the best local favorites, you'll want your own car to explore as much as possible while on your vacation. No matter what you end up doing in Berlin, if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having access to your auto is a must.
We work with many of the finest rental car businesses in the world. With a name like Budget, you know they will try to get you the cheapest rate. Open for business in 1958 in Los Angeles, Budget always attempts to provide the best rates for customers.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Berlin is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Budget's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Berlin. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Berlin vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Budget in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with full tank, and you should return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Budget.
Berlin certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Berlin, having your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to check out more of Germany, you can leave wherever you want to, without having to spend time waiting for the bus or hail a taxicab.
Before your next getaway, book your Budget Berlin rental car and zip off to take in all the items on your itinerary at your leisure. Go through CarRentals.com and drive the road in Berlin, Germany.
