FRANKFURT CAR HIRE - FRANKFURT GERMANY CAR HIRE

Frankfurt Car RentalFrankfurt Car Hire - As in any city, there are plenty of car rental agencies to choose from. You can do your research over the internet and also make the reservation that way. As soon as you land in Frankfurt, you can take off in your rental. If you plan on driving on the Autobahn, remember there are sections of the Autobahn that do have speed limits. It is also illegal to run out of gas on the side road, and you will be ticketed if this happens. Even though you have to be 17 to legally drive in Germany, many companies prefer the driver to be 25. Some companies rates are higher for younger drivers and comparing each company is always a smart idea.

Once in Frankfurt, you can pick up your rental in the airport. All major companies are located here and they do allow drop off of your rental in different locations. This is great if you plan on visiting other parts of Germany and departing from another airport. Most companies do offer unlimited mileage. Remember manual transmissions are more common than automatic transmission in most of Europe.

In the Frankfurt International Airport, you will find Alamo, Thirty, Dollar Rental, Budget, Hertz and well the list goes on. Now some hotels have their own rental agency located in the hotel. This is a nice bonus because you may not want to rent a car for your entire trip but just for a day trip outside of Frankfurt. For over 45 years Argus Car Hire has been renting cars in Europe. They have an office downtown on Industriehof 3-5. There staff is multilingual and you have your choice of cars from compact to luxury.

The National Alamo Rental Office has two different locations downtown. On is located on Escherscheimer Landstrasse 115. They charge less for drivers that are over 25 years old. This office is open Monday - Friday, 7:00 to 18:00. Saturday 8:00 to 12:00 and closed on Sunday. They also are closed on major holidays. The other location is at Hanauer Landstrasse 74-78. They keep the same hours. Weekend rates tend to be higher than mid week rates in the rental world.

If you are looking to compare all the rates from different companies then try one of the many services that make these comparisons online. They will compare the major Car Rental Companies and give you the best price. These services are wonderful if you plan on reserving your car before your trip. If you find yourself in the city and you want to rent a car for a day or two, then ask your hotel for suggestions. They may have a discount with a local rental agent.

You can also rent from Online Travel websites and other online travel agencies. Sometimes if you check out a company you may find specials or discounts that you won’t find any other place. All in all it is well worth checking out a number of websites to get the best discounts.

Renting a Car in Frankfurt doesn’t have to be stressful. Frankfurt is a wonderful city to explore whether you use a car, public transportation or your own feet. Booking a car allows you to maybe explore a little more of Germany if you have the time.
