We are a family of 4 ( 2 adults and 2 kids ages 11 and 5yrs) planning on a trip to Frankfurt for 3 days. Is it advisable to rent a car and drive in Germany?
We do road trips here in US most of the times and are comfortable driving.
Just had a few questions.
- Is the US driver's license valid for driving in Europe or do we need anything additional to that?
- Are there parking spots available for free at tourist attraction sites and towns?
-Are the road signage easy to understand ?
- Can we get a GPS for rent as well at the car rental?
- Do kids need to have car seats ? especially my 5 yr old. Can we rent them?
Would love to hear from people who have done similar trips.
