The segments of standard, intermediate and full-size cars in Germany traditionally include the following vehicles: Mercedes C Class, Mercedes A Class, Toyota Avensis, Hyundai Sonata, Renault Scenic, Renault Megane and others.

The process of a car reservation on consists of 3 simple steps: (1) search by the dates and pick-up location, (2) car type selection, and (3) booking form completion. After the booking, you will receive a rental voucher at your e-mail address.

Before selecting a specific model to book, check your planned routes. If you are going to drive mostly within the Cologne borders, choose a car of 'Standard' or 'Compact' types. In case you plan long cross-countries trips or mountain adventures, the more comfortable and powerful 'Fullsize' models would become a better choice.

If you need a car with an automatic gearbox, try to make a reservation at least a few days before the pick-up date, since confirmation of such models in Cologne might be delayed for a day or two.

Upon the return of your car, carefully check that the total payment amount (invoice) is computed according to the original rental conditions.

We wish you 'smooth', secure and safe roads in Cologne!

Driving Advices for Germany – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
On circular roads the cars that already move on the circle have the priority. However, this rule should be used with caution as not all local motorists are distinguished by diligent compliance.
All fines should be paid within seven days. An important note - in case of a driving without a fastened seat belt the fine is paid by the passenger who forgot to fasten it, not by the driver.
For local residents car is not just a means of transportation, but one of the main indicators of their social status. They look after their cars carefully and try to keep them always clean and flawless. The attitude to “sloppy” drivers in Germany is appropriate.
