avoiding hi fees for crossing border with rental car

Travel Forums Europe avoiding hi fees for crossing border with rental car

Hi all
I need an advice.
I am having a car rental with pick up location in Munich, Germany for few days.
at the end, my destination is Prague. but returning the car in Prague will cost me extra $350.
so, I was thinking of returning it anywhere on the German/Czeck border crossing and continue with train to Prague. ( I do not need a car in Prague)
I was looking into many places between Nurnberg and Dresden....... but got nowhere.
Can someone please advice as to the most convenient (and affordable) way of doing it? As long as I return the car in Germany, there will not be a "drop of" charges.

Thank you very much.

I suppose the rental agency has a list with their drop-off points on their website. I don't see how anyone here could be of any help.

To follow up on your pm: here's a list of German-Czech border train stations:

  • Schöna / bad Schandau (on the main line to Praha)
  • Kraslice / Klingenthal (nearest bigger place: Zwickau)
  • Cheb (nowhere near 'civilisation' on the German side, so no drop-off points)
  • Furth im Wald (nearest bigger place: Nürnberg)
  • Bayrisch Eisenstein (again, nowhere near civilisation on the German side. Regensburg is close by-ish)
