Car hires in Hamburg: practical information

Where to rent a car in Hamburg

Looking for a car hire in Hamburg? The airport is the best place to pick one up, right after you disembark from your flights to Hamburg. Budget and Europcar have locations at the airport.

In the city centre, you’ll find both international brands as well as local ones. Budget and Europcar have offices at the central train station, while Hertz has an office just opposite Hamburg’s Hauptbahnhof. Star Car, a local German agency, is on Jenfelder Alle.

Driving in Hamburg: parking and other tips

Driving in Hamburb is a breeze. There are major thoroughfares which cut across town in just about all directions meaning you can skip the city centre when you want to get across the city. What will set you back however, is the price of parking. Car parks in the city centre tend to be very expensive so it’s better to get a hotel in Hamburg with parking available to guests.
