Fines can be a nightmare for a traveler
Concerning the fines, many people cannot imagine how high they are in Munich and in Germany on the whole. There are some of them:
- High blood alcohol level (from 0.5 ‰) – from 500 till 1000 Euro.
- Speed infringement by more than 70 km/h – from 600 Euro.
- Violation of overtaking regulations – from 70 till 150 Euro.
- Talking on the mobile phone, failure to sit a child in a child seat– 40 Euro.
- Unfastened safety belt (for the driver and passengers) – 30 Euro.
- Illegal parking – 60 Euro.
You are also not advised to violate the limitations which concern the speed rates in the city and on the Munich highways and outskirts. So you must not drive a car in the city with a speed of more than 50 km/h. You can make up to 100 km/h on highways and up to 130 km/h on expressways. In addition, you should attentively look at the road signs in order to let down the speed if necessary.
Insurance and franchise passions
Just five years ago, when tourists were not aware of numerous details, any car insurance package was accepted as a matter of course. Nowadays, it is accepted to think about and figure out everything and sign the insurance agreement only after this. When hiring a car in Munich, you need to conclude three insurance agreements:
- Package from car theft. Despite the general safety level, car thefts happen to occur in the city. Besides, there are rough parts of the city where you can leave your car for half an hour and not find it.
- Insurance package from the damage caused to the car. As a rule, this package does not include the wheels and windscreens. Their compensation is on the car renter’s conscience.
- Insurance from the damage which can be caused to third parties.
It is up to the car renter to decide which franchise to choose. Sometimes you had better lash out and sleep in easily like, for example, in Italy. In some cases, you can weigh everything and rely on your own driving experience and common sense. Then you will not have to overpay and get an insurance policy with the standard franchise which can be from 800 till 1500 Euro. Many factors affect the choice, and they are always justified.
The European quality and corresponding price for fuel
There are different fuel stations in Munich. They can be both small and unnoticeable and large. The large stations include cafes, restaurants and other establishments. They have one common feature. This is the quality of fuel and its price. The local people undoubtedly know where it is more profitable to fill your car with fuel 95 and where it is better to purchase a full tank of diesel fuel. Concerning the traveler, who often does not have time for experiments, he should know one thing. The prices are approximately the same, the quality is under strict control and the self-service functions at practically all fuel stations. In other words, you come, open the tank, insert the fuel nose unit into it, pay money and fill your car with fuel.
Parking a car in Munich is a German quest
In spite of the prejudices, it is possible to find a parking lot in Munich. Comfortable spacious modern parking spaces are located in different city districts inclusive of the historical center. The only period when you cannot count on parking your car in the city is the world famous beer holiday called Oktoberfest. But you must admit that at this time it is only fitting for you to go for a walk on foot. This is because you will never try such an amount of German beer. The holiday traditionally takes place at the end of September or at the beginning of October.
The paid parking space is marked by the Latin letter P. The payment of a parking place is usually accomplished via a special parking meter. Therefore, the human participation is minimized. The cost of parking is different, but on average, it is from 2 till 3 Euro per hour. Many car parks are free after 18:00. On the other hand, the cost of some car parks increases from 23:00 till 6:00.
