Choose a Car Class

Thanks to high fuel prices and ancient city streets, Europe’s rental fleet tends toward the petite. A Chevrolet Aveo, one of the smallest cars available for rent in the States, is 12 inches longer than a Renault Twingo, a member of Europe’s mini class. Factor in your luggage when selecting a car. A Ford Focus or Volkswagen Golf is ample for two passengers and their bags, while a party of four may require a Peugeot 407 or an Opel Insignia.
