How old do you have to be to rent a car in Kassel?
Generally, to rent a car in Kassel you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the country. Additionally, many suppliers charge an extra fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read over the supplier's terms to discover what the total is before you rent your car.
Do I need insurance to rent a car in Kassel?
When driving in Kassel or the rest of Germany, you will need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim insurance with the rental supplier.
The major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa, and MasterCard) will generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering large vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Kassel.

You will need to find an open gas station near your car rental supplier
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers 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
Make sure you check out a few items before you leave the rental lot on your Kassel adventure. You should take time to:
- Inspect your car and make sure there is no dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
