Car hire Potsdam: Facts and figures

A car hire company enables you to book a cheap hired car of your choice. No matter if you desire a compact car, a small car or even an SUV. There are a large selection and many offers. Our portal Driveboo will help you find the hired car that meets your requirements quickly and reliably. But not only the vehicle model is decisive. You can also choose different insurance options, an additional driver and free kilometres.

Compare offers: What insurance is available for the hired car?

Without insurance, the car hire company will not issue a vehicle. Therefore, when comparing the offers on our portal, pay attention to the offers of the insurance companies. There is a large number of insurances to choose from. Fully comprehensive insurance and liability insurance are compulsory insurance policies. But you can still extend your package. Many use glass and tire insurance. This will protect you in the event of a breakdown.

Fully comprehensive insurance without a deductible is not offered too often. If, however, you would like to book a hired car with fully comprehensive cover without a deductible, then simply narrow down your search. With Driveboo you have the possibility to find a car hire company that offers a fully comprehensive without excess. However, you must bear in mind that you will of course pay a little more.

One-way rental for your hired car in Potsdam

Due to Potsdam's location, one-way rentals are more than suitable. Many people hire a car cheaply in Potsdam and prefer to leave it in Berlin. It is not uncommon for trips to this city to be combined with a visit or even a longer stay in Berlin. Then, of course, it is all too practical if the one-way rental has been agreed in advance. Especially in the metropolitan area in and around Berlin, many car hire companies offer one-way rentals. Please inquire beforehand, however, whether the car hire company you have chosen has a one-way rental offer or not.

What to consider when hiring a car in Potsdam?


Best refuelling regulation for the hired car

Basically we always recommend to decide for the fair fuel regulation full/full. With this you pick up your hired car with a full tank and return it with the same tank level. Thus you can start immediately starting from hiring. 

Best insurance coverage for the hired car 

With the legal liability insurance you should pay attention to a particularly high sum insured. In addition, we always recommend the comprehensive insurance without deductible. With this you are fully covered in every case of damage. 

Additional driver

If you are travelling with a companion, you may be interested in the additional driver option. With this option, your travel companion enjoys full insurance coverage just like you. Taking turns with the driving becomes thus unhesitating. 

Young drivers

Drivers under 26 often pay a so-called "young driver fee". With some offers, the young driver fee for rental cars in Potsdam is already included in the price.

Hired car return

Easy return for your hired car in Potsdam

Plan enough buffer time for the return of the hired car. Depending on the selected refuelling regulation, you must fill up your hired car accordingly. To do this, simply visit a gas station near the car hire agency. After you have parked the hired car in the area of the car hire, an employee will check the condition and fuel level. If everything is in accordance with the time of the rental, the retained deposit will be released. 

Returning the hired car outside the opening hours

The return of the hired car is also quite simply possible outside the opening hours of the car hire. In principle, there is a designated mailbox or safe for the vehicle key. As soon as the car hire company reopens the next day, the hired car will be inspected. Should everything match the time of the rental, you will be refunded the deposit.

Can I cancel a hired car free of charge? 


Up to 24 hours before the start of the rental, you can cancel any hired car free of charge without giving any reason. Should the Corona pandemic or another reason disrupt your travel plans at short notice, you are on the safe side. Please note the opening hours of our service team.
