Germany is ideal for traveling by road due to its ultra-modern and efficient freeway network. Transportation for groups in Frankfurt couldn't be easier with the freedom of a 7 seater car hire. Enjoy your time getting around and check out Germany's themed roads, such as Fairy Take Road (Märchenstraßbe) between Frankfurt and Hannover, but make sure you are prepared for driving in the city.
Beware of bike paths that run along the sides of roads all over Frankfurt. The city is very cyclist friendly, and its important to note that both pedestrians and cyclists always have the right of way. What's more, pedestrians at zebra crossings have the right of way even if the lights don't indicate it! Do not be alarmed by the trams in the roads. Though you always have to give them priority, you are fine to drive on their tracks and treat them just as if they were cars. Busses also have priority when leaving stops.
Parking is permitted wherever there is a sign with a white letter 'P' on a blue background. The sign "nur mit Parkschein" means that you must first purchase your ticket to park from a pay and display machine. Make sure to put your voucher on the dashboard where it can be seen to avoid a parking fine. Fines range from 10 to 50 DM, and in some cases your car rental with seven seats may be booted or towed.
While driving make sure you carry all the necessary documents pertaining to your car hire, along with your valid driver's license.
