But there is a short list of countries where an additional licence or contract fee, or state tax may be levied. Information about such fees and taxes will be provided by the rental company.

Traffic violation fines

In Germany, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:


All this time, we've been speaking how to make the most of your trip budget. Now let's talk about how to avoid unexpected expenditures, for example, fines. Most of them can be avoided by following generally adopted rules of conduct, law-abiding behaviour, sticking to street cleanliness, and public order. However, be attentive to various warning signs on the streets and buildings, therefore, avoiding having lunch in the wrong place or accidentally entering a restricted area.

Payment method

MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express cards are accepted for booking payments.
PLEASE NOTE that some rental points accept credit cards only. In order not to find out about this at the time when you receive the car, carefully read the Payment Methods section before travelling.


If such a requirement does exist, and you are the holder of a debit card, it is not a problem. Many banks issue debit cards, which are listed as credit cards in the system and have zero limit. Check your card type on www.bindb.com by entering the first 6 digits.

Speed limitations

All the rumours that travelling across Germany by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:

Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.
