driving a foreign rented car into Berlin x umweltplakette

Jump to last reply

Hello all, I am planning a trip from Hungary to Germany by car. I have booked a rental car at Hertz. I am getting aware of the regulations to drive through Slovakia and Czech Republic (Vignette, High visibility vest). In Germany my final destination is hotel in Berlin. To enter this city every car must have a green environment sticker (umweltplakette) indicating that the car have an acceptable level of particle emissions. "Vehicles passing through these areas without an emissions sticker make the owner liable to a €40 fine ..." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vignette_(road_tax)#Germany).
I have read somewhere else that this emission sticker can be obtained, for 5 euros, in garages, vehicle testing organisations, vehicle registration offices and at numerous Internet websites but vehicle registration is needed and I don't have until a got the car.
Is there any rule that exempt a turist driving a foreign rented car into an 'umwelt zone' of having that sticker or I am obliged to go to a garage?
Yesterday I asked Hertz if they already have this sticker on their cars and I waiting for their answer.
Thank you for you help
