What is characteristic about Germany is their road culture that many foreign drivers remark on. This culture is because of strict enforcement of rules which include…
- Overtaking is done on the left, not right.
- Driving too close to the vehicle in front has a fine up to 400 euros
- Not using turning signals is a 10 euro fine.
- Exceeding the speed limit in built-up areas costs 15 EUR.
- Half of German motorways have speed limits applied, either 120, 100 or 80 km per hour.
- On the national roads, marked with the letter B, and generally outside built up areas speed is limited to 100 km / h. In built-up areas it is 50 km / h.
- Note: If you drive a car with a trailer outside built up areas, the limit is 100 km / h on the highway and 80 km / h outside built-up areas.
- Frankfurt has an excellent park and ride system

Frankfurt Car Leasing
On our recent European holiday my wife and I leased a brand new Peugeot 308 through UDrive for 41 days.Choosing UDrive and leasing as opposed to hiring came at the end of a lot research,we were not dissapointed with our choice. We picked up the car at Frankfurt airport and returned it there after covering close to 6000klms, transfers to and from the airport were on time and courteous,the whole experience was faultless from start to finish. Thank you Michael and your staff at UDrive,we are recommending your organisation to fellow travellers and will be in touch when we next require a lease vehicle on another European adventure. Again thanks Michael.
Germany Car Leasing
I leased a Peugeot through UDrive Car Hire in 2019, for two months from September until the end of October. The entire process was handled professionally and in excellent time. Delivery of the car in Frankfurt, and drop-off again was easy and went exactly as planned. The vehicle was brand new, and, unexpectedly, I received an 'up-grade' from the vehicle chosen, without further cost. I would recommend UDrive Car Hire to any visitor to Europe.
Frankfurt Car Leasing
We were very happy with the experience. For a six week trip that was based around using a vehicle to get to out of the way places it was great. The agent who looked after us at Frankfurt (Michael ?) was a pleasure to work with. The airport interchange went smoothly and his advice for the trip very useful. The car Citroen C4 was as expected. The GPS is essential, but it sometimes needs watching to make sure you don’t use too many minor roads when better alternatives are available. Also, the small engine vehicles are ok to 130km/hr but lack grunt for overtaking on minor roads and become very thirsty if you drive above say 140 on the German autobahns. One change from 15+ years ago when we last used your program is that (some) countries in Europe are using e-vignettes for authorised toll road use. Germany and Switzerland still have an annual sticker for fixing to the windscreen. Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia and Czech Republic have all implemented the EU directed e-vignettes which requires a bit of internet savvy. I think we complied but who knows? Fortunately I had my computer and iPhone to make those purchases. (Italy still uses cash for their toll roads). The vehicle number plate is used by cameras monitoring traffic. If you haven’t paid (eg 10Euros for 10 days in Slovakia), then there is a substantial fine. Travel is very focused on smart phones and computers these days. Governments expecting you to complete “Digital Passenger Declaration”s complete with phone photos of yourself and your passport and your vaccine status are causing grief for travellers not equipped with computers and smart phones. I made 2 momentary errors re driving on the wrong side. Fortunately they were momentary and had no consequence. Just need to be aware at all times. Thanks for the service, maybe update the location of the Frankfurt depot and the contact phone numbers. Again many thanks and best regards
Great lease experience
We were very pleased with our brand new car! It was a very comfortable ride, and we got to pick our exact model, and not be constantly stung for extras like diesel, auto, car rental excess, exhorbitant international one-way fees etc as we have experienced in the past with car rentals. The only thing about this is the need to book a few weeks (or more) in advance - but if you're organised, this is definitely the way to go. We were very pleased with Udrive as well, and would recommend them.
