Rental cars

There will be 4 of us going to munich germany in march. We will be staying with "friends of friends" for the most part but need to find a rental car (to fit all of our big butts in). Anyways, I was wondering whats the best site to find good rates and if anyone knew how to get ahold of coupons for rental car places there. All the ones I seem to find are for U.S. only. Thanks

You definitely want to rent the car from here, not in Germany. I've use AutoEurope (www.autoeurope.com - 1-800-223-5555) for 15-20 years and think they're the greatest. They'll match anyone else's price, too.

The so-called US "majors" including Hertz have agency locations in Munich. Autoeurope and their sister company Kemwell will act as an "agent" if you use them (your actual car could come from any number of local agencies).

Sometimes Kemwell's prices may be slightly better than Autoeurope's so you may want to check both.

Also try www.novarentacar.com We've used both Nova and Autoeurope and been happy with both brokers.

I was happy with this agency, although the rental was in France:

Be sure you rent a suitablied sized vehicle. Consider baggage requirements. An crowded overloaded small car is not worth the low price. First the 'vehicle', then the price.

www.gemut.com specializes in Germany. They will give you great information for your travel plans.
They also do competitive prices for car rentals in Germany.

We rented cars in Germany from Avis several times. Surprisingly, they were usually willing to cut us a good deal when we got there, upgrading us for no charge or finding us a special reduced rate that we hadn't known about (we would reserve online and then when we got to the office, we always asked if the rate we had found was the best available). No guarantees that you'll have the same happy experiences, but we were more than pleased with their rates and service.
