German Car Rentals

Jump to last reply

When renting a Thrifty / Rent a Terstappen Rental Car in Germany, you MUST note EVERY single little scratch or dent on their inspection report prior to renting the vehicle.....OR avoid Thrify / Rent a Terstappen altogether. They won't make it easy for you since no one will go with you to the car in the parking lot after you get the keys. You will have to return to the counter to note the marks. I learned the hard way by simply driving out of the Munich airport only to get charged $176 for a 2cm scratch on the side view mirror casing that I didn't cause in the 2 days I had the car. By the way, they'll hit you up for a $600 Euro insurance deposit up front then deduct whatever they want. This was AFTER I filed a complaint with AMEX. They've got the art of the scam down cold. BEWARE!
