Renting a car in Germany involves few obvious hassles. You won't need a local driver license for even a lengthy stay in Germany.

A good price for a three-day economy car rental in Berlin is €130. To view car rental rates in Berlin for a specific date, click here.
To get the best price, reserve a car before leaving home. Ask for an all-inclusive rate with full insurance and unlimited kilometers. Many of the less expensive rental cars in Europe will have neither air conditioning nor roll-down windows. To get the best deal, shop around, reserve ahead of time and pay in advance.
Most agencies only require a valid driver license and one year of driving experience. The minimum age to rent is 21. However, many agencies will not rent to anyone under 23, and renters under 25 often pay a surcharge of about US$20 a day.
