Why drive with CarRentals.com?
With all there is to do in and around Freiburg, you'll be wanting to explore more than the area surrounding your hotel during your visit.

What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best rates on a Freiburg Sixt car rental?
We try to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Freiburg?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Freiburg's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Freiburg is 21. Make sure to check Sixt's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Freiburg?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Freiburg. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's bags and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Freiburg getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Germany require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Germany. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Freiburg. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Freiburg. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Sixt car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Sixt 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 save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Sixt. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Freiburg definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Sixt offer one-way rentals in Freiburg?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
