Hello experts:

I need to rent a car for one day (April 16th) from 7 am - 6 pm in Munich (near central station). I plan to drive the car on autobahn to go to Audi factory (about 80 Kms away). Planning to rent a luxury car, so I can go faster (if there is a no-speed zone).  Also, renting automatic transmission. Checked online, and seems Sixt is the best option. Are there any codes for Sixt?

Anyone knows if there are any speed limits between Munich to Audi factory? Or how do I know if there are no speed limits? What will the road-sign say?

Also, do I need to get any kind of insurance? I will be putting the charge on Sapphire Reserve.

Anything I need to know or be aware of?

Thanks.

Take clear pictures of the entire car, including wheels, when you pick it up.  And again when you return it.  So mysterious damages don't become your responsibility.

Thanks for the reply. Will do.

Do I need to buy car insurance when renting with CSR?

Any info on speed limits?

1. You can get Sixt Platinum status ( link on JJ 10 year post)

2. If you play around to get to Sixt via referral links you should find a better price. ( Can't remember what I used)

3. Don't remember the insurance limit on CSR. You might want to check that.

Also FYI you don't get liability insurance
