Tips on Renting Cars in Europe

The following are some tips that you should keep in mind when renting a car in Europe:

  • You will not need a car if you are simply going to be staying in large European cities.  Rail transportation between cities is excellent.  However, if you want to check out the countryside, renting a car is wise.
  • Generally you will find the best prices by booking in advance from the U.S.
  • The best rates on European cars can be found by renting them by the week with unlimited mileage.
  • Renting at the airport is often more expensive then picking up your car rental downtown.  If your trip entails a ferry crossing, it may be cheaper to rent a different car in each country.
  • Usually there is no additional charge to rent a car in one city and drop it off in another city located in the same country.  However, international drop off fees often add $100 to $300 to your cost. Fees, whether they be rental fees, or drop fees will cost you more to one way rent.
  • There are many taxes and fees you need to be aware of..  Taxes usually run 18 to 25 percent of the base price.  American auto insurance usually does not cover European car rentals.  Collision Damage Waiver insurance averages between $15 to $35 per day.  Theft protection, which is mandatory in some countries, runs around $20 per day.
  • Most European cars have manual transmissions.  You will need to reserve an automatic well in advance of your trip if you need one.  Be aware, automatics average $100 to $200 more per week.
