With a lot of the more known car manufacturers located in Europe, car rental companies here promise exciting options. You can start your European Road Trip on a luxury car or an electric car or something a little quirkier. Here are some tips and some car options for your European car rental.

1. Advice Before Renting A Car - Rick Steves Europe suggests to keep an eye out on rental rates per country. Companies may have differing rates in different countries, so choosing a trusted brand and then tracking which country it is cheapest to rent from is a great way of saving money. Additionally, watch out for tax, insurance and other possible add-ons the company may charge. (READ: How To Avoid Unexpected Car Rental Fees)

2. Smart Cars - Great for navigating the tighter backstreets of France, Italy and Spain, smart cars are a great way to get around. The Fiat 500 Cabriolet is the quintessential smart car and is listed as a mini-category vehicle. USA Today also suggests the Fiat Panda, a larger, economy-sized vehicle small enough to go through small roads but big enough to fit luggage and travel buddies. (READ: Electric Car Road Trip Tips)

3. Luxury Cars - Go out into Montecarlo in style. Auto Europe offers some of the most high-end European cars. One of their options is the Rolly-Royce Wraith that is fitted with their most powerful engine yet. In addition, the car is equipped with a satellite-aided transmission which aids the driver in predicting roads ahead. (READ: Jaguar's I-Pace Concept Luxury Electric Car)

4. Family-Friendly - The Citroen Cactus is unique to Europe and features interchangeable Airbump panels on its sides. These black panels on the cars sides protect it from minor bumps and scratches and protect users from repair fees. The Opel Vivaro is also a great option and can seat nine people comfortably plus luggage. The van is also more classically built, compared to the chunky minivans of the U.S. (READ: The Longest Road Trip In The World - Couple Sets Record In The U.S.)

5. Need For Speed - The Mercedes AMG GTS coupe and the Lamborghini Huracan V10 are available for rent and are the perfect balance of powerful engines and fine Italian craftsmanship. The fastest car for rent is the Ferrari 488 Spider, which can take riders from 0-60mph in a matter of three seconds. In addition, this sports car features a Retractable Hard Top so you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the city or the countryside.
