What's the age requirement to rent a car in Karlsruhe?

Usually, to rent a car in Karlsruhe you must be at least 21. Please note, there might be an added fee if you are under the age of 25 or for higher category rentals in particular. Go over the terms to figure out what the exact charge is before you rent your vehicle.

Does Karlsruhe require rental car insurance?

When driving around Karlsruhe or the rest of Germany, you'll need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental.

Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

What are the different fuel policies?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.

You will have to find an open gas station near the drop-off location

What fuel policy do you recommend?

At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Karlsruhe?

Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Tips before you leave the lot

Before you get started on your Karlsruhe trip, be sure you go over a few items before you leave the lot. You should:

  • Walk around your vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
