KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Konstanz

  • Car hire in Konstanz offers a wonderful opportunity for you to take control of your getaway in southern Germany and explore the region on your schedule. You can spend your time driving to various places around Lake Constance before exploring the city centre and its decorative styles, Gothic spires, frescoes and popping art museums. You can do all of this without relying on a local bus schedule or paying tour fees or spending copious amounts of money on local taxis.
  • Many companies offering car hire in Konstanz also offer the same service at Zurich Airport (ZRH), an international airport close to the city and one of the best places to hire a car, as it'll be your arrival and departure point. Companies like Avis, Budget, Enterprise and Europcar all operate out of the airport shopping area, in the main public area of the airport. It's wise to reserve your hire car online before arriving, to avoid wasting time filling out forms and to save money. In-person hire tends to be more expensive. You'll retrieve your keys and be escorted to the car on the first floor of the airport shopping area.
  • Car hire in Konstanz is usually a simple process, from the moment you pick the car up to the moment you drop it off. Driving in the city is quite straightforward and the roads are well maintained and accommodate all kinds of vehicles. You’ll need to keep an eye out for bicycles, which sometimes move out of the bicycle lanes, as well as local buses and trams. Buses tend to stop at bus stops on the road, so don't follow too closely behind and be aware of where the stops are.
  • There aren't many difficulties with driving a Konstanz hire car. However, something to watch out for is the local buses and the tram, which you'll need to make way for if they stop or cross your path. There are also a fair number of cyclists in the city that sometimes veer off the cycle path and into the main road. Other than that, peak traffic times can be a concern. Generally, the morning commute happens between 6:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., and the afternoon peak is roughly between 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. If you want to avoid traffic, stay off the roads during these times.
  • Book your rental car in Konstanz at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Konstanz are around -81% cheaper than other car types, on average

If you're not going to leave the city, consider hiring a compact, smaller model, as these are easier to navigate and tend to be more eco-friendly. Those with a large family can grab an ever-popular SUV and drive around in style.

  • What’s the speed limit in Konstanz?

    The speed limits throughout Germany are uniform, so you'll need to be aware of them regardless of where you're driving. If you're inside the city and other built-up areas, stick to 50 km/h or below unless otherwise stated. You'll often find a lower speed limit around schools and other areas where children are often located, so keep your eyes out for those. When you're out on the open road, you can push the car a little more and stay around 100 km/h or below. If you're on the autobahn/main motorway, there are sections that have no speed limit, indicated by circular white signs and black diagonal lines, and other sections with a limit of 130 km/h.

  • Where are the best places to park in Konstanz?

    The majority of available parking in Konstanz is paid parking, either on the street or in a car park. If you're parking in the street, you'll need to get a ticket from a ticket station nearby and estimate how long you'll be parked there. Pay the ticket and place it in the windscreen. If you're in a car park, you'll usually be given a ticket and have to pay before leaving based on how long you've been there.

This is maybe the best car rental counter ever. I've used them 6-7 times and it's always been accurate and easy to pick up.

KAYAK

Cons:

While Kayak accepted my reservation, the local rental car agency had no cars available. The agent stated that Kayak does not provide telephone or email contact information for the renter, and so could not notify me that no cars were available, and forced us to make alternative plans via train. In the end we had to pay for a taxi to & from the rental car agency only to find out there were no cars.
