Whether you want a powerful engine to cruise the autobahn, or a compact vehicle for exploring the country’s magical villages, towns, and cities, here are some of the best types of car rentals for different kinds of vacations. Your choice of vehicle can make a big impact on your vacation with leg room, luggage space and features all playing a big role. The best car for Germany also depends on your location, and with the country offering experiences ranging from alpine skiing in Bavaria to the nightlife of Berlin, Cologne, and Hamburg, your mobility needs can be quite varied!
Best Car For Traveling Around
The speed limit on the majority of Germany’s autobahn system is advisory and many people travel in excess of this. With the country being relatively spread out in comparison to its European neighbors, the autobahn system is extensive and efficient. To take advantage of this over long distances you may want to look at renting one of our powerful sedans. They are packed with excellent infotainment and driver assistance systems as well as providing economical transportation for longer road trips. With their spaciousness, stylish designs and luxurious interiors, they also make for the perfect family car giving your passengers a high level of comfort no matter where you’re going.
Best Car For Summer Weather
Germany mostly has extremely cold winters and hot summers. Though all of our vehicles are fitted with air-conditioning, if you are renting a car in Germany during the hot summer months from June to September, we highly recommend a fun and stylish convertible. With their compact size they are both economical and a great city car, easily maneuverable in tight spaces and great on narrow streets. They are also incredibly fun to drive, with powerful engines and the ability to drive with the top down.
Best Car For A Short Weekend Trip
Germany is an excellent destination for weekend trips, with cities like Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, and Munich all providing a blend of excellent nightlife and fascinating historical sightseeing. Compact cars are one of the best car rental options for a short weekend trip. They offer enough features and space to give you a high level of driveability and comfort, while also being a great size for parking and navigating in built-up urban areas. They are also one of our most affordable vehicle categories and so perfect for travelers on a budget.
