    *Covid-19 Update for Americans Traveling to Germany*

    Currently, US citizens are prohibited from traveling to Germany with very few exceptions. Travel for tourism to Germany is currently not allowed for residents of the United States. Americans may enter Germany if urgent family reasons are demonstrated from first- and second-degree relatives. Some of these include births, weddings, deaths/funerals, and exceptional cases in which there is an urgent family reason. Distant family members who are not first- or second-degree relatives are not permitted to enter for family reasons.

    When will Americans be able to travel to Germany for tourism?

    In a Washington Post article published on September 24th, there was little optimism that Americans traveling to Germany for tourism would be allowed in 2020. Eduardo Santander, executive director of the European Travel Commission, is hopeful that Germany will be able to open to US travelers in 2021. Santander believes Americans can plan trips to Europe for 2021 as long as the reservations are adjustable or refundable.

    We have begun to see an uptick in Americans planning for 2021 travel. Industry experts are predicting a travel boom once European Union travel restrictions are lifted. Author and European travel guide Rick Steves has a growing waitlist of 10,000 families hoping to travel to Europe in 2021. Most Auto Europe car rental bookings in Germany are fully refundable if canceled up to 48 hours before pick-up. Book your 2021 travel to lock in the lowest possible rate for your car rental in Germany.

    The CDC has issued a Level 3: Reconsider Travel notice for travelers looking to travel to Germany. Find more information from the US Embassy & Consulates in Germany for more Covid-19 info for Americans. You can also find more information on travel to Germany from the German Federal Foreign Office.

Some suppliers may also charge drivers aged 18-24 an additional fee, called the "young driver surcharge," that can be upwards of $25 USD per day.

    How much does it cost to add an additional driver to a rental in Germany?

    On average, an "additional driver fee" will typically range from $15 USD - $25 USD per day. Not all suppliers will charge the same amount for an additional driver so be sure to verify the fee in the booking process. The additional driver fee is charged per day so if you are traveling for an extended time, it can be quite costly. Occasionally you can find special deals on our site that offer a free additional driver with certain suppliers.

    Can I use my domestic license to drive in Germany?

    Most European nations allow drivers from the United States and Canada (among several other countries), to pick up a car rental, and drive legally, with just their domestic driver's license - but with Germany, there is a strange legal gray area. Auto Europe strongly recommends that you purchase an international driver's license before driving in Germany. Possessing an international driver's permit isn't necessary for picking up a rental car, but if stopped by the police while driving said rental car, there is a strong chance you will be fined. To reduce the risk of this happening we recommend that you obtain an international driver's permit to supplement your home-country domestic license.

    Can I rent a car in Germany with a debit card?

    Auto Europe partners with a number of suppliers to give our customers as many options as they need. We do partner with some suppliers who are willing to accept a debit card as payment but you should be aware that the supplier will need to charge your debit card a deposit when you pick-up your rental to cover any potential damages. Once the car is returned without any issues the money that was charged will be deposited back into your account within a time frame set by the supplier.

    Contact Auto Europe for your Rental in GermanyCan I drive my rental car into other countries?

    Most car categories can be driven anywhere in Western Europe without restriction. Due to insurance regulations, there are restrictions on luxury car categories and on travel in certain countries. Auto Europe has special rental programs for driving into Eastern Europe. Please take a minute to ensure that your intended itinerary will be possible with the car you plan to rent. Domestic one-way car rentals are generally allowed and available with most suppliers. Some domestic one ways do incur a fee. There are fees for international one-way rentals and not all vehicles are allowed (For instance, luxury cars rented in Germany are not allowed into Italy).

    NOTE: For an additional fee, travel into most or all restricted countries can be arranged for specific car categories with advance notice.
