If you want to see everything Aachen has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Hertz. 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 go anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Germany even better with a Hertz rental car.
With everything to do and see in and around the Aachen area, you'll be wanting to take in more than just your hotel room while on your visit. Whether you have to try that well-reviewed bistro across town or check out some of the local favorites, you'll need your own set of wheels to take in as much as possible while on your vacation. No matter what you end up doing in Aachen, if you want to get the most out of your visit, having your automobile is key.
We work with many of the top rental car companies in the business. Hertz has over a hundred years of car rental experience and a fleet including some of the most respected in the business, like Kia and Ford. With Hertz history and thousands of distributors worldwide, you know you'll be well taken care of.
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you book. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Aachen is 21. Take time to read through Hertz's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Aachen. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal 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 enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Aachen vacation can choose a higher-end car model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent from Hertz. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Aachen. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Aachen. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Aachen certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Aachen.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another Hertz. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Aachen, having access to an auto lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to see more of Germany, you can go when you like, without trying to hail a taxicab or sign up for a ride-share.
Before your next trip, book your Hertz Aachen car rental and zip off to take in all the must-do activities. Reserve through CarRentals.com and hit the open road in Aachen, Germany.
