In Germany, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:
All this time, we've been speaking how to make the most of your trip budget. Now let's talk about how to avoid unexpected expenditures, for example, fines. Most of them can be avoided by following generally adopted rules of conduct, law-abiding behaviour, sticking to street cleanliness, and public order. However, be attentive to various warning signs on the streets and buildings, therefore, avoiding having lunch in the wrong place or accidentally entering a restricted area.
All the rumours that travelling across Germany by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:
Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.
We care about your budget and in conjunction with rental companies of Germany, we regularly make deals and launch special offers. Start monitoring prices for dates you are interested in right at the beginning of planning your trip, so you have a better chance to rent a car with the maximum benefit. The most reasonable time is 2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods and 3-6 months within the high season.
You may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time, in this case, the money will be returned to your account in full.
To travel calmly and to not to think about possible damage to the car, take out a full insurance policy; in this case, any difficulties with the car cease to be your concern and fall on the shoulders of an insurance company.
Carefully read the insurance document; therein, you will find information about what it covers, and how to proceed if an occurrence happens after all.
