Get Your Motor Running

by Nancy Bestor

Although I enjoy riding European trains, sometimes a rental car makes more sense. While driving a car in Europe is not without its challenges, it certainly provides easier access to towns off the beaten track. When our family of four is traveling together, it also saves us a lot of money, as train tickets for four add up quite quickly. There’s also lots of fun to be discovered adventuring along the backroads of Europe, or better yet, hitting speeds of up to 120 mph on the German Autobahn.

If your 2012 summer travel plans include renting a car in Europe, all our forecasts say the time to book is NOW. Like airline tickets, car rental prices are steadily increasing as summer approaches. If you want to lock in the best rate, our advice is to contact Gemü European Auto Rentals. Gemü has been booking car rentals in Europe for more than 25 years, and like Travel Essentials, offers outstanding, personalized customer service―as well as the lowest car rental rates. If you have any problems with your rental, or you need advice on where to pick up or drop off your car, Gemü cannot be beat. And if your plans change it’s no problem, as Gemü car rentals can be cancelled with no penalty. Don’t just trust our recommendation, read about their service on Rick Steves’ travel forum here.

Renting a car in a foreign country can be a little daunting, particularly when you’re picking up your car in a country where you don’t speak the language. So, let Gemü European Auto Rentals help smooth out the rough road.
