What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get an Erlangen Sixt rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my car in Erlangen?
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 Erlangen?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Erlangen is 20. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Sixt's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Erlangen?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Erlangen. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Erlangen vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Erlangen. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Sixt car rental?
Sixt does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to Sixt. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Erlangen?
Erlangen certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Erlangen.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
