Arranging your car rental online in advance of the actual trip makes sense for several reasons
- It ensures that you get the model of car that you request
- The full online booking is done in your own time rather than at the arrival airport where you are likely to be surrounded by a frazzled partner and a selection of tired and emotional youngsters
- The fully inclusive price is fixed
- It's quicker at the car hire desk (although you won't believe that if you've ever seen the queues at Alamo in Miami)

Upon the delta of the Dussel River, where it flows into the Rhine, lies the busy modern metropolis of Dusseldorf. The city is centrally located in the lower Rhine basin in what is known as the Rhine-Ruhr urban area.
While Dusseldorf spreads across both banks of the Rhine you can find its more modern industrial and commercial side on the left bank. On its right side was where the town began but unfortunately due to World War Two bombing much of the old city was destroyed. The elegant city you see before you today is due to an immense campaign of the post war restoration work. With the passing of the war, bit by bit, some of the more precious buildings were lovingly restored while the rest of the city was constructed very carefully to ensure its original charm was not lost to hasty modern rebuilds.
Dusseldorf and its surburbs are easily accessible thanks to its efficient public transport system.

With its continuous line of in excess of 200 bars and restaurants, the hospitality fuelled Altstadt is lovingly called ‘the longest bar in the world’.
Designer boutique heaven awaits you in Dusseldorf, however if you are not interested in shopping you would be forgiven for thinking it ‘designer boutique hell’! The King’s Avenue otherwise known as The Ko is best known for its jewellery shops so get those credit cards ready.
Moving away from the subject of retail therapy, in Dusseldorf, culture comes in all shapes and sizes. To kick off, there is the Opera officially known as ‘The german Opera on the Rhine’. Built in 1875 it is the principle venue to head for when opera lovers are in town.
For contemporary art, look no further than the Kunsthalle Dusseldorf. The gallery is a favourite with enthusiasts of conceptual art and is packed with collections and exhibition space filled by new and up and coming artists. Nothing at all to do with the Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, the Kunstmuseum is where to go in the Rhineland for classical works and masterpieces. With over 80,000 prints and excellent Persian bronze and glass collections, the museum is particularly famed for its sculpture exhibits dating from the Middle Ages.
Frankfurt doesn’t get all the best museums for Dusseldorf has a Goethe Museum too! This is a literary museum full of the famous writer’s works which now belong to the Kippenberg’s extensive private collection of 35,000 pieces. Look out for the first drafts of his popular poems.
Literature fans will be enthralled to learn that in the Altstadt an institute is dedicated to Germany’s well loved 19th century poet, Heinrich Heine. The museum includes a 10,000 strength volume set amongst its exhibits and tells the story of his life. Amongst his life works was the famous Die Lorelei, the writer caused a stir when his lyrics were banned by the Nazi Party.
