Frequently asked questions

How do I get a Koeln National car rental at a great price?

CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. But reserving well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. 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 pick up my car in Koeln?

Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Koeln?

Most suppliers in Koeln 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. Take time to go over National's policy to know what the total cost is for you.

What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Koeln?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Koeln. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Koeln getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Does Germany require car insurance?

In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Koeln. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through 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 book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.

Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?

We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to National.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Koeln 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 offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different National. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
