I don't think that they were intending to charge for the service. I think that the particular service guy didn't know what he was talking about and rather than admit it decided to stick to the...

There's a paper check on that stretch between Munich and Salzburg, yeah. It's no big deal: it's just kind of how they do border crossing. They have a number of cars that go out and flag someone down,...

As empirical evidence: we dropped off in Paris last year, and if they drove it to Munich first then someone rolled a LOT of miles off of the odometer before redelivery! :)

I didn't have a $2.00 fee last October when I was in Germany, so if they do that it's a very recent change. I was in Essen and used the DB down the street from the train station several days in a row...

You can set your ATM withdrawal limit to anything you want. Just call BoA customer service and ask them to set it. I think the default is indeed $200, but they can change it to whatever.

Munich to Venice is around 5 hours of driving, not 3.25. You can't speed a lot on the drive through the Alps to shave much time off of the 5 hours, either. You're not really going to get a chance to...
