In general car hires in europe will let you cross country lines, at least within the EU (which unfortunatley Montenegro is not). However, you should confirm this with the hire company - either through reading policies on their website, or by asking them. You've got two issues to be concerned with - firstly whether the hire company's insurance applies once ...

Since this question had been first posted and answered there have been a few new developments in the long term rental space. So if you decide that you need a car for 1-6 months it may be better to use long term rentals instead of buying a car. For example: Relay Rides - on this site you can rent a car from a private party although the selection may not ...

You could get a Smart Fortwo. It probably counts as an entry-level car and has an automated manual transmission, with no clutch pedal (you do need to press a button on the steering wheel to engage the higher gear). Won't seat 7, though ;-) Small hybrid cars (like the hybrid version of the Toyota Yaris) could also be an option, although I am not sure whether ...

I believe that any large rental company will have automatic transmission cars. Looking at Hertz cars, you can get a class F car (4-5 passenger compact sedan) with automatic transmission for 450-550EUR for a week. A smaller manual car would cost you 300-400EUR. Whether this is cheap for you is up to you to decide. See below for a screenshot of a sample ...

However, prepaid or stored value cards ...

In a nutshell, everything is possible: dropping the car off in another German city, renting in Austria and dropping it off in Germany or vice versa. You will pay a premium for one-way rentals and then extra on top of that for cross-border one-way rentals. But you can do it with all the major international brands. Beyond that, German motorways are not quite ...

Start at the end, by arranging the flight out of Germany. Choose the city of departure that is the most convenient regarding prices and schedules. This way you will have fixed three parameters: the arrival in Bucharest and departure from Bucharest as well as the departure from Germany. Then, choose a flight between Bucharest and Germany. Choose again a ...

If this doesn't affect the price of your flight tickets, I would suggest to fly to one city, e.g. Berlin, drive to the other end of Germany, eg. Munich while stopping at Frankfurt or Nuremberg and then fly home. I see little sense in driving back to the arrival airport, unless this affects the price of the flight tickets or the rental car (one-way rentals ...

Unfortunately, this is most likely not possible to decline CDW at Europcar and get a better price. Like discussed this question about protection depending on the booking website, pricing of rental cars is pretty opaque. Depending on your residence country, on the rental company, on the location, and some possible other parameters (like temporary offers), the ...

Fear not, there's an extremely useful app which shows you available cars as well as vacant/occupied spots on a map. Using the app will of course require a data connection in your phone. ...
