What you need to know about car rentals in Karlsruhe

How do I get the best rates on a Karlsruhe Hertz car rental?

We try to get you the best price, whether you book. However, getting your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Karlsruhe?

Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Karlsruhe?

Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Karlsruhe is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Hertz's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.

What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Karlsruhe?

That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Karlsruhe. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Karlsruhe trip can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Germany?

In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Karlsruhe. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?

Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Karlsruhe. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Hertz.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Karlsruhe certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Karlsruhe.

Does Karlsruhe Hertz offer one-way car rentals?

Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different Hertz. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
