Car hire Berlin: Which car hire companies are in Berlin?
Have you thought about sharing a car? Then look through the price comparison to find the offers not only for the hired car but also the insurance that includes an additional driver. As the insurance for a hired car is only for one driver, this could be a good option to add to your booking.
If you hire a car through the price comparison, you should always make sure that the insurance also includes a fully comprehensive insurance policy without excess. Because in such a large city like Berlin, a rear-end collision or other damage can quickly occur in dense city traffic. When booking this option, you are on the safe side. It may not appear to be so cheap at first glance, but in case of an accident, you won’t have to pay any additional costs for damage.
If you hire a car only for one way, then it is called one-way rental. You pick up your hired car at one location but return it to another location. For example, you may pick up the hired car at Tegel Airport, need it for a few days in Berlin, but then continue your journey by car to Hamburg. If your journey ends in Hamburg, you can return the car at the airport rental station.
When hiring a hired car, a deposit is required
Deposits are always paid when you pick up the hired car, for example at the Tegel Airport. After returning the car to the rental station, the deposit will be immediately refunded. If you have chosen the option of hiring the car with comprehensive insurance without any excess; and there is some damage found on the car, for example, due to a small rear-end collision, you will still get the full deposit refunded. With this sort of insurance, it does not matter if you have to pay the deposit. We recommend, hiring a car with high insurance is cheaper than paying the costs for an accident and not getting the full deposit refunded.
