That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Friedrichshafen. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Germany?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide.

What is the fuel policy on my Sixt car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You should receive your car topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Sixt.
