Recently I posted an itinerary that involved flying from the U.S. to Frankfurt; renting a car at the airport; driving through Bavaria, including the Bavarian Alps; staying outside of Munich (taking the train into Munich); and, finally, staying in/around Nuremberg where we would drop off the rental car before taking the train for multi-day stay in Berlin before heading back to the U.S.
The hope is that the drop-off fee, if there is one, will be minimal, since we wouldn't be returning the car to the Frankfurt Airport. Questions:
- So far, I've been looking at SIXT and AutoEurope. Are these my best bets for a good deal?
- We're AAA, AARP, and COSTCO Travel members, along with CapitalOne. Any thoughts/experience on going through them for a better deal?
- We plan on having the car for 10 days. It's only the two of us plus relatively small luggage, so we won't need a big car, but it needs to be an automatic. Can anyone ballpark what the cost should be? I would get insurance with it and probably want a GPS.
PS- Re: my prior post, several folks were extremely helpful, so much so that it impacted the itinerary. Thank you again! (I'm also closely reading Rick Steves' Germany book.)
