The surcharge is charged by all car rental companies for cars picked up at airports and train stations in Germany. Most European countries have such surcharges (France and the UK don't yet-or at least didn't when I last checked) Some rental companies don't break the surcharge out clearly when showing their prices.

Based on Rufus's report, this accounts for the disparity:

I've been renting in England and France over the past 5 or 6 years. Next year's trip will be to Germany however, and I'll be up on the situation.
