What you need to know for the road
How do I get the best prices on a Dresden National rental car?
We strive to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I pick up my car rental in Dresden?
Be sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Dresden's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Dresden set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to review National's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Dresden?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Dresden. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Dresden trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does Germany require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, 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 National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Dresden. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
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. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Dresden definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Dresden National offer one-way car rentals?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
