Here's what I did when I went to Germany..
I had got an IDP done from India prior to going there. The IDP had only a certain validity ( I am not sure how many months).
When I wanted to apply for a regular German drivers license after the expiry of my IDP, I was given the option of surrendering my Indian license in favour of a German license but I was required to pass the written test and the driving test. I could however skip the mandatory hours of driving that one has to do before giving the test as I already had an Indian license.
I did just that and got my German license. I am not sure if car rental firms in Germany would rent a car just on your Indian license.
