What you need to know about car rentals in Aachen
How do I get an Aachen National rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. However, reserving your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be 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 get my car rental in Aachen?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Aachen?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Aachen is 21. Make sure to review National's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Aachen?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Aachen. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Aachen getaway can choose the premium category to get a car 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 from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National 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 National rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Aachen?
Aachen certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Aachen.
Does Aachen National offer one-way car rentals?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another National. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
