If you do not book in advance, it is certain that you will pay top price and it is possible that there will be no suitable cars available.

No. But I do know that, throughout Europe, walk-up rental prices are very much more than pre-booked prices. For example, I once had a one-day rental booked for €79. Waiting to pick up the car, I looked at a card listing walk-up prices. The walk-up price for the same rental was €239.

I also know that, throughout Europe, if you do not book ahead you may not get the car you want. Especially if you want an automatic.

It depends when you're travelling but if you have your itinerary in place and need to hire a car then I would reserve it beforehand, just for peace of mind.
