FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly 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 the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
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 delay. As a general 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 must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

General Info

Famous the world over for its prestigious university, impressive castle, vast Christmas market, and beautiful scenery, this historical city is a must-see during your stay in Germany. In 550,000 BC, the remains of the precursor to the Neanderthals were found in a wall just south of Heidelberg, the earliest evidence of human life found in Europe. Not until the late 12th century was the name of Heidelberg first utilized, and since then the city has experienced a great many cultural, social, and political victories. In 1386, Heidelberg University was founded by Prince Elector Ruprecht I, making it the oldest university in Germany. Heidelberg enjoys a rich cultural history, which can be seen in its many old buildings and imposing architecture, found mostly in the Altstadt, or Old Town, area of the city. Heidelberg Castle is perhaps the most important and well-known attraction of the city; building of the castle commenced in the 13th century, and features an amalgamation of Gothic and Renaissance styles. 

19th century writer and poet Goethe first came to Heidelberg in 1775 and was immediately enamored by the city of romance. One can hardly blame him as in the summer months, the city is in full bloom, with exotic flora not found elsewhere in Central Europe flourishing in the gardens and parks. The Neckar Wiese, a name attributed to the banks of the Neckar, is a favorite meeting spot for hundreds of people during the day and evening times. People come together here to grill, play soccer, and enjoy the beautiful picturesque banks of the glistening river. 

Travelers wishing to trace the footsteps of important philosophers can take a trip along the Philosophenweg. This trail leads up the southern side of the Heiligenberg, across the Neckar from the castle, and features beautiful scenery and a Zen-like atmosphere. The climate along the trail is more temperate than in the valley, and therefore, in the summer months, you will see a great many exotic plants including lemon trees, pomegranates, cypresses, and palm trees are among many that give this walk a Mediterranean feel.

Twelve kilometers to the west of Heidelberg is the town of Schwetzingen. It is well-known for its impressive array of castle gardens and bustling town square opposite of the castle. The castle, which is more of a palace, features interesting architecture, a newly renovated mosque, and colorful peacocks roaming the grounds. Afterwards you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the town square and mingle with the local townsfolk.

With your rent a car in Heidelberg, you can take the roughly 100 kilometers trip north to the bustling metropolis of Frankfurt. This multicultural city is the main transport hub of Germany, and also contains the third largest airport in Europe the Frankfurt Airport. Frankfurt is a city of stark contrasts; you will find antiquated buildings set against imposing skyscrapers, business-people sipping their coffees next to alternatively dressed hipsters, and beautiful neighborhoods from the 19th century only a stone’s throw away from the hectic business district.

Visit the city of Cologne, with one of the tallest churches in Europe. Walk along the Rhine or come during the Karneval season to show off your best costume.

Or cross the border to visit some of the neighboring countries such as the Belgium or you can make a road trip to the Netherlands.
