KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Darmstadt

  • When you get a car rental in Darmstadt, you can enjoy enhanced flexibility compared to if you have the same holiday using an alternative mode of transport, like a bus or train. This is because you don’t have to abide by public transport schedules and you have the freedom to come and go as you please. For instance, if you drive to Dieburg, it takes about 17min. Whilst it takes a similar time to make this journey using a train, you do not have to adhere to the train timetable, so you can travel when you want.
  • Frankfurt Airport (FRA) has lots of car rental companies that you can choose from, so your ideal vehicle will be easy to find. For instance, if you want to rent a car with SIXT, you can locate the offices quickly. The branch is located in Hall A, Level 0 of Terminal 1. When you arrive, you can follow the ‘Car Rental Centre’ signs, which will take you to the branch.
  • When you get a car rental in Darmstadt, you will find that it’s a popular city that attracts lots of visitors for its architecture. As there are lots of tourists here, you need to be careful when driving, as many are unaware of the jaywalking rules in place and cross the road in areas that aren't designated pedestrian crossings. There is also a big cycling culture in Germany, with Darmstadt being no different. Make sure you frequently check your mirrors, especially at intersections and roundabouts.
  • If you get a Darmstadt car rental, you will notice that the city can get very busy with traffic. The rush hour in the city tends to be from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., which is when many locals are driving to and from Frankfurt for work. There is also a mini rush hour from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. as lots of schools only have half days. If you prefer to drive on quiet roads, it’s suggested that you avoid driving at these times. Route 26 is one road that gets especially busy, as it goes through the centre of the city. Therefore, if you can find an alternative road to take, you will find this beneficial for your journey.
  • Book your rental car in Darmstadt at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
