    Chongmai. For what it is worth I had a 3 cm scratch caused by me and Hertz did not charge me.

    Companies do change their attitudes. I used to use Enterprise who were lenient until a year ago, when they even confessed they were losing money so we're trying to be very strict and charge for any conceivable scratch.Luckily, I had no scratches

    I always take photos on pick up and drop off.

    Exploding Seagulls

    Was driving on the highway in NRW and a seagull (I think) flew in front of me, exploding against the grill. White feathers everywhere! Scared me half to death. Luckily, no other cars were around, because I am sure I swerved into every lane. I pulled over and a thousand feathers were stuck in the grill. I pulled a lot of them out, but had to get going again to return my car. The girl at the return looked at the grill and then at me with raised eyebrows. I explained what happened, but there was no damage to the vehicle, so no harm done. Except to the bird.

    So, another thing to look out for while driving in Germany!

    Europcar Dusseldorf Airport.

    I highly suggest you pass on Europcar if renting at Dusseldorf Airport. I've returned cars there twice and twice I've been assessed damage. After more than 380 days of renting from Europcar with only have damage once and now twice in 2 months, both times under questionable circumstances. Once the door was marked as scratched during checkout but on return he noted a 5 mm dent in the same door where the scratch was. On the other, he stated no problem with the car and after I walked away and was inside the secure area of the terminal I received an e-mail saying there was a chip in the windshield. My next visit I will select a different company to rent from.

    Latest update: today I found in my mail box, again I signed nothing, the fine from Germany. They specify they deducted something, but not how much, from my speed due to radar allowance, and say I was "speeding" at 50 (LOL or sob?) where limit was 30.

    It is in my language, but in case of reply they ask me to write in german on the attached form. It is written so nicely, full of details and explainations, with a close up photo of me driving (I look gorgeous, LOL!). The name of my city is wrong by more than half of the letters and even longer as well but the postal code must have taken the envelope to the right place. And they call me something like "dear kind mrs"... I love this tender and funny letter with the beautiful photocopied pic of the stunning driver, I'm going to treasure it and even pay the fine. But not the car rental fee!

    I have also a lot of unpaid tickets. No problem renting again.

    So authorities checked you up and no problem. That's good. I'm always a little bit scared of that when I visit Germany. Always hope there will be no raids when I visit clubs. But the police probably can see it.

    There is also an IBAN (which means they won't charge my credit card?) and they want me to pay in 30 days from... I don't even know what and didn't even bother to translate. I mean, in my country any notice would work from the day I officially received the letter, which would be evident by my signature to mailman or at post office. Otherwise one may not even know what's the matter, because he might have not received the letter... It should be obvious that one can't be charged for something he's not even aware of... Or it could happen like the letter of last year which I received muuuch later than 30 days after getting the flash by the radar (I never received the real fine anyway). How could I be held responsible/guilty for being late in payment if I got that notice months later?.

    I would say in this letter it's not even written what could happen if I didn't pay this fee or I if paid it but not in time.
    A fee which I would more properly call "theft", because it is not a fee! It could make sense to pay a fine, but not such a robbery.

    As far as I am concerned, I didn't sign anything = I didn't receive anything = I have nothing to pay. And ok, I won't hire cars anymore from that company in order to avoid troubles

    For Hungrystud. I saw a sign at the rental agency of pricing if you don't bring the tank filled. It was like 4. Something Euros per liter and there was a price above 1. Somthing, thinking either normal price or if you have them fill it. When you have them fill it, I believe they charge the full tank even if you have fuel left over.

    I notice per liter prices are more expensive at autobahn rest stop gas stations compared to in town gas stations. Same goes for ATM. Banks gives best rate.

    If you got a weighty car, of course Diesel is most efficient.
    Fuel prices are very high in Germany at the moment, probably the biggest reason for the difference.

    I always use my Amex card for car rentals in Germany without any issues.

On my personal automobile insurance back home I had an endorsement that would extend coverage if I were to injure or kill a person while operating a rental vehicle. I know companies like SixT have liability insurance but my question is, is it sufficient coverage if I were sued by an individual involved in a motor vehicle accident that were my fault?
    By law, most (if not all) European rental companies are required to provide liability insurance. If it is required, I am sure it is sufficient!

    Got BMW 2 er gran tourer from Eropcar. After driving at 180-200 km / h on A 57 the car computer said check your tire pressure, which I did next day when tires were cold at the gas station, the pressure was below normal. Probably not important unless you want to drive fast on the autobahns.

    Camsam plus works fine and it's cheap. It can run while a real navigation app is running.

    I have a TomTom app and I was curious how they get information on where the cameras are at? Do people report it?
    I have Waze on my phone, friends of mine have a Coyote device. Both have options to report police, cameras, heavy traffic and different types of hazards. These reports are then immediately available to other users of the network.

    Amex cards are in general not well adopted in Germany.
