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

Be sure to read over the rental agreement to figure out what the total will be before you reserve your rental.
Is insurance required to rent a car in Berlin?
Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through rental car supplier, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the United States. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Several credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa, and MasterCard) will provide some coverage. However, there may be limitations, such as not covering bigger automobiles such as trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Berlin.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will have to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||There will be a full tank of gas when you collect your automobile. Use as much gas as you wish and top it off when you return your car. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank upfront and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the supplier to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a fuel station near your rental drop-off location||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You may not have a full tank when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy do you recommend?
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle 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. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before returning the rental car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
If you wish to check out all that Berlin and maybe even the rest of New Hampshire offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Go over the fine print to make sure they are truly "unlimited."
