KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mainz

  • Car rentals in Mainz offer one of the best ways to explore the city and surrounding. Unlike public transportation options with fixed routes and schedules, rental cars provide more flexibility. With a rental, you get to plan your trip to your liking, choosing the route and time of travel. Most public transportation options also get crowded most of the time. Rental cars come with much more needed privacy. As such, you can let loose and have fun during your trip. Gutenberg Museum and Mainz Cathedral are top destinations you can easily access with a car.
  • Most passengers flying to Mainz usually land at Frankfurt am Main Airport (FRA). You can easily rent a car at the airport instead of taxiing to car rentals in Downtown Mainz. Several international and local rental agencies offer their services at the airport. These agencies are found at the Car Rental Center in Hall A in Terminal 1. You can access the rental center through Diamond Lounge. The airport is a popular car rental location. Therefore, we recommend booking a car well in advance to ensure you secure your preferred vehicle on landing.
  • The driving style in Mainz is mostly considerate. Most drivers in the city follow traffic laws making driving here a pleasant experience. However, here are a few tips to consider before taking your car from Mainz car rentals to the roads. Mainz has a large low-emission zone that covers far beyond the city. Therefore, you will be required to have an emission sticker when going through this zone. However, you can pass by on A643 or A60, where an emission sticker is not required. The city has a fair share of pedestrians and cyclists; therefore, stay alert to avoid hitting them.
  • Like other major cities, Mainz experiences rush-hour traffic. The morning rush hour is from about 7 am to 9 am, while the evening rush hour lasts from about 5 pm to 7 pm. The good news is that not all roads see heavy traffic during these hours. Avoid driving around Downtown Mainz as it sees a lot of traffic during these hours.
  • Book your rental car in Mainz at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Mainz are around 13% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

Every step of the way was excellent. We knew we were arriving in Mainz after office hours & we’re concerned that we may have to wait until the following day to rent a car, but Ben, the Mainz Sixt Manager made a special trip into the office from his home to meet us there when we arrived. HE WAS GREAT
