Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Karlsruhe Budget rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Karlsruhe?
Make sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Karlsruhe?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Karlsruhe is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policy to find out what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Karlsruhe?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Karlsruhe. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Karlsruhe getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, 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. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Karlsruhe?
Karlsruhe certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Karlsruhe.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
