Location information for Germany

Germany is best explored by rental car. 121CarHire.com has over 294 pick-up locations in Germany. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Germany is a diverse tourist destination which is renowned for its long history, beautiful scenery and innovative technology. There are 80 scenic roads which can be used to explore the stunning countryside as well as the famous network of autobahns, which connects key locations such as Berlin, Cologne and Munich, and makes for an excellent driving experience.



Germany has an efficient public transport system with rail, metro, bus and taxi services. However, the most convenient way to get the most out of Germany, which is a large country by European standards, is with car hire in Germany. This service is available at the main air gateways of Frankfurt, Dusseldorf and Munich.

Car Hire Germany

Car rental in Germany can be obtained at all airports and major train stations as well as in city centre locations. The main providers are Budget, Hertz, Avis, Alamo, Europcar and Sixt. Most of these companies allow customers to pick a car up in one area and drop it off in another, so travellers can head across the country without having to take their car back to its original pick-up point. To get the best deal, travellers should compare car hire in advance.


The autobahn network is reason enough to rent a vehicle in Germany. It's one of the most famous driving experiences in the world, and a rental car is the perfect excuse to try it. Ensure you always use the right lane on the autobahn when it's available. Parking can be difficult in city areas, but there are many park and ride facilities available to help you avoid the stress of finding a parking space. Many of Germany's minor roads are fantastically picturesque but narrow, so drivers should be cautious at all times.

Things To See and Do

Germany has many attractions, including historical monuments and fabulous scenery. With a car, visitors have the freedom to access the Alps, with their great skiing opportunities, Bavaria and the Black Forest, and the spectacular River Rhine. The Romantic Road takes motorists on a wonderful journey past castles such as Neuschwanstein and pretty villages.

Best Time To Visit

Germany's climate is best between July and September. Winter time is the best time to visit for skiing or snowboarding. However, there are many festivals and celebrations all year round. One of the most popular times to visit is during Oktoberfest, which runs for two weeks from the end of September and attracts over five million people every year. Christmas is also a great time to visit, as there are lots of festivals and markets.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
