Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Essen?
You will need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Essen?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Essen is 19. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Avis's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Essen?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Essen. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Essen getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class 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. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Avis require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Avis does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Essen. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Avis car rental?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Avis.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Essen certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Avis?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
