Arrival by Car

Major car rental companies have offices in all mentioned airports. In general, all non-residents (including non-EU nationals) are permitted to use the driving license (issued by their local authority) during the first 6 months of stay in Germany. EU/EWR driving licences are even accepted without this temporal limitation. In some cases, care rental companies may require an authenticated translation of the original driving license, in order to ensure your eliglibility. This is often the case if the driving license is not completely written in English and/or does not clearly show categories of vehicles. For instance, Russian "international" driving licenses often cause this kind of questions. Last but not least: Make sure you drive alive! Drive on the right!
