The car was in good shape and I liked the hassle-free collection service.
Delivery and collection was a hassle-free process and even though I've rented cars several times in my life, this was the best experience so far.
I like Apex for their quick response, fair price and for the wide selection of amazing cars!
Are you planning a trip oversees this holiday? Perhaps to visit some family or friends who live in Berlin? You could rent a Volkswagen in Berlin this holiday season. If you time appropriately and do plenty of research it is possible you could save money compared to the average rental. It is definitely not a decision you should rush. Here are some pointers for hiring a car in Berlin during the holiday season that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Plan Way Ahead
Possibly the worst mistake you could make is waiting until you arrive in Berlin to start searching for your Volkswagen rental. True, there are plenty of car rental agencies in the area and they most likely have a VW in stock, but there is going to be a significant difference in price. If you want to get the best prices possible, then you need to book your rental well in advance of your arrival.
How far ahead of schedule do you need to book? It is advised that you book at least two months ahead of schedule if you want to get the best possible price. Not only will this effect the price by a percentage of up to 20 percent, but it could also be the difference between getting the VW you want and the only cars they have left.
Consider The Fuel You Will Use
Many dealerships offer an option of returning the vehicle with an empty tank of gas or with a full tank of gas. Of course, if you opt to return it on an empty tank that does not mean you'll be charged if there is gas in the tank. It also means that will be the relative condition of the gas when you rent the vehicle.
So what difference does it make? It all depends on how much driving you will be doing. If you are only driving a short distance then it is actually more cost effective to return it on a full tank. You just pay a bit to fill it up before you return it and you can avoid a larger fee. However, if you have a long journey ahead of you, then you simply put gas in it as you need it and return it as close to empty as possible.
Don't Forget To Inspect
One final pointer is to inspect the car thoroughly before signing the contract. This pointer applies regardless of whether it is the holidays. If there is any existing damage on the vehicle you need to take pictures and make sure the dealership is aware. Otherwise, they could make a claim that the damage came from you and attempt to charge you for it.
All dents, dings, and scratches should be photographed and listed. The last thing you want on your holiday is to rent a Volkswagen in Berlin and wind up paying an unexpected bill for damage that was not your fault. It is not very common, but it does happen. Though, hopefully, you can find an honest dealership that won't attempt this.
