Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Cologne Dollar rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Cologne?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Cologne's minimum age to rent a car?
Dollar's minimum age to rent a car in Cologne is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Dollar's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Cologne?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Cologne. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Cologne vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Germany?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Dollar. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Cologne. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Dollar require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Dollar requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Cologne. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Dollar car rental?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Dollar rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Dollar.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Cologne?
Cologne definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Dollar?
Dollar typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Dollar. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
