Do I need insurance to rent a car in Kiel?
Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy interim coverage with the rental car supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Several credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will provide some coverage. However, there may be limitations, like not covering large vehicles such as premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Kiel.
Are there different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The gas tank will be full when you get your automobile. Use as much gas as you need and top it off when you return your car when you are done. Just make sure to refill the tank before you return the car to avoid a refueling cost||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a half of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with an empty tank. Some rental car companies provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to confirm with them beforehand||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your car||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before you drop it back off||You fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local prices||You'll need to locate a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually suggest that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Kiel?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several clients all over Kiel. You can drive as much as you like and not incur additional charges. Review your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage restrictions.
Tips before you leave the lot
Make sure you check a few things before you leave the lot. You should:
- Look over your vehicle and make certain there is no dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
