What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Erlangen?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Erlangen. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Erlangen vacation can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Germany require car insurance?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Erlangen. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Erlangen definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Erlangen.

National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
