Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Frankfurt National car rental at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I have with me when I get my car in Frankfurt?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Frankfurt's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Frankfurt set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Frankfurt?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Frankfurt. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Frankfurt trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Frankfurt. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National does require a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Frankfurt. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should get your vehicle 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 filling station before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Frankfurt?
Frankfurt 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 National?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different National. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
