Rental Car Tips & Advice
Avoid rental car surprises in Europe
Renting or hiring a car in Europe has become complicated in recent years. To avoid unexpected fees, the traveler shopping for a rental car in Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Ireland, Croatia, the U.K., or dozens of other European countries, must be knowledgeable about insurance, currency exchange, European automobiles, and the many ways rental car and car hire companies and brokers obfuscate charges added to basic European rental car rates.
Flexibility and convenience
For the traveler seeking the most authentic European travel experience, one who wants to wander Europe’s back roads and explore its small towns and villages, a rental car is truly the only choice. With a rental car comes the ability to quickly and comfortably journey to places the majority of tourists never go. Auto travelers move at their own schedule; the rental car is available whenever they need it. Trains are fast, comfortable, and romantic, but there are a lot more miles of highway than railway in Europe.

Consider a factory lease/buyback

Customers who choose this option get a fresh-from-the factory, brand new car, and are able to select a specific model with specific options... plus they avoid all the worry and cost of insurance, airport fees, road taxes, additional driver charges, cross-border fees, etc. 2020 will be our 25th year of arranging these lease/buybacks and we have yet to receive our first complaint.
