We had a great holiday in Dresden. We traveled by car. It was quite cheap, as we reserved and paid for it via this resource. We asked about the price in case of direct rental, it turned out that we got the car even cheaper and without delay, as we received a wide package of insurance included in the base cost without overpayments.
