FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Rent a car in Germany - What's important to know?
1. Can I rent a car without deposit?
A deposit in the form of a credit card block is required to rent a car in Germany.

 
2. Is it possible to rent a car without a credit card?
Wherever you rent, a credit card is required to block the deposit for your car rental. HAPPYCAR does not guarantee that other forms of deposits will be accepted by the rental company.

 
3. How can I take out insurance?
During your search, choose an Excellent Offer, where you fully cover your excess. Any damage costs will be reimbursed to you by the provider in accordance with their terms and conditions.

 
4. What documents do I need to pick up the rental car?
Every car rental company in Germany needs the following documents from you: 
  • ID/ passport
  • Driving license
  • Credit card
  • Your car rental voucher
All documents must be issued in the name of the main driver.

 
What to do in Germany?
Large parts of the country, particularly in the south, are covered by the Alps. These mountains have given birth to the German pastime of hiking. Nature lovers will rejoice at just how much fresh air and wide-open space there is to enjoy. Car rentals in Germany are recommended because the best hikes are far from public transport. You'll also want to bring some hiking gear for the tougher trails.
Rent a room in a classic German lodge and enjoy good food and beer from the beer halls by night. By day, find a cheap car hire in Germany and explore the gorgeous countryside. There's plenty to see and do, and the sights are quite unlike any other.
***
Tip: 
Large parts of Germany can be very rural. When hiking, it's not unusual to run across animals like cows roaming around footpaths. Those used to cows confined to fields may be in for a shock. However, you will be fine as long as you walk confidently and keep your distance.
***

 
Thanks to its convenient location, Germany attracts many tourists. Plan your stay in the city ahead and find out in advance what the car rental company offers. With HAPPYCAR it's very simple - choose dates, compare offers and book the right car.
