Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Koeln?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Koeln. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Koeln trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like an Audi A4 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 a car from Hertz. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Koeln. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your car topped off. But, 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 triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Koeln?
Koeln definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
