Hamburg
Pros: Car (Skoda) seemed to be an upgrade from VW Golf; car was roomy & fairly fuel-efficient.
Cons: I arrived at the airport at 0800; AVIS did not open until 0900. Found no "Parkschein" in the car. Automatic engine turn-off/on was annoying (that's Skoda's problem, not Avis') Drop-off was terribly slow and seemingly disorganized

If in Hamburg, go to Enterprise on Borsteler Chaus
Pros: First and foremost, the staff at this location are excellent. Easy to converse with, personable, it's a warm feeling that greets you as you walk through the doors. The vehicles I have rented thus far are superb, always delivered clean and it's only a few minutes confirming details before I am on the road. Prices are exceptionally fair for the level of service and the vehicle type you will receive. I highly recommend anyone in Hamburg to visit this location when looking for an auto rental.
Cons: Nothing, this place is superb.

Refused my reservation - illegal bait & switch
Pros: Horrible, dishonest, illegal practice and service
Cons: Enterprise refused to honor my reservation. They admitted to making a mistake and giving away my car. Then they offered me a different car for $20 more. Since we had travel from California and we needed to get to a wedding, we had no choice but to pay more even though online we found cheaper reservations with Enterprise.

Cons: pickup first my car was not available. I was offered to upgrade to higher class for extra payment which i did. when i got to the car it turned out that it was a different car from what i had upgraded to. i took the keys back they explained that the car is mislisted in their computer system. The next car was fine but when I turned the portable GPS on, which I had also rented, the screen was badly broken. Due to the fact that they were understaffed and could not accompany me to the car I had to walk back and forth from the parking lot to the rental desk a few times and wasted half an hour until all their mistakes were corrected.

Cons: Customer care was not interested with us. He just instructed to put the car in the deignated area and he didnt help. Most schocking was, after drop off the car in the indicated location and area, I was exytra charged on my credit card without my consent 23 euro for not known reasons.

Top tips for renting a car in Hamburg

  • The top reason to rent a car during your time in Hamburg, aside from joyriding on the Autobahn, is that a vehicle allows you to spontaneously zoom over to any of the city’s neighboring towns and villages. For instance, the port city of Lubeck is just 70 kilometers (43 miles) away and is an easy day trip with a car.
  • If you are landing at Hamburg Airport and are looking to pick up a hire car right away, you can find the various hire car companies in the Arrivals Hall of Terminal 2.
  • Drivers who plan to use the Autobahn should make sure to stick to the appropriate lane, based on their driving speed. Specifically, only use the far left lane if you plan on truly driving fast and passing other vehicles. If at any time you see flashing headlights behind you that means move out of the lane because a faster car is coming up from behind. In general, German drivers expect the slower cars to move out of the way so that faster drivers can keep their pace uninterrupted. Drivers should also note that some sections of the Autobahn do have speed limits, so keep on the lookout for posted signage.
  • Hamburg is one of Germany’s most populous cities and, as a result, it often is bogged down with a dash of rush hour traffic. On an average day, rush hour traffic picks up at around 6:00 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m., while in the afternoon it starts back up again shortly after 4:00 p.m. and hangs around until 6:00 p.m. on most days.
  • Book your rental car in Hamburg at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

How can I find car rentals near me in Hamburg?

Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Hamburg?

Visitors to Hamburg looking to rent a vehicle are recommended to opt for medium to small vehicles such as SUVs, compacts, and sedans. Such vehicles are well-suited for Hamburg’s roads, which, while not small, are not necessarily as wide as the roads commonly seen in cities in the United States. Additionally, drivers will find that drivers of smaller vehicles will also have an easier time finding on-street parking spots large enough for them.

What's the speed limit in Hamburg?

Within the city, the typical speed limit for residential areas is 50 km/h (31 mph), but in densely populated areas with high amounts of pedestrian traffic, the speed limit occasionally goes down to 30 km/h (18 mph). On major urban roads the speed limit ranges from 60 to 70 km/h (37 to 43 mph). On the Autobahn there is often no speed limit, but occasionally there are specific speed limits such as 130 km/h (81 mph).

How are gas prices in Hamburg?

Drivers can expect to pay on average €1.35 ($1.54) per liter of petrol in Hamburg, which is around €5.11 ($5.83) per gallon.

Where are the best places to park in Hamburg?

Parking in Hamburg, like in many large cities in the world, can be a bit of a trial at times in the busier areas. Fortunately for drivers, though, Hamburg has numerous parking garages and parking lots available throughout its downtown core. It is also quite cheap to park at these lots, with rates starting as low as €1.00 ($1.14) per hour.
