KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Dortmund

  • Car rental in Dortmund affords you the ideal opportunity to explore this incredible city in the North Rhine-Westphalia region in Germany without having to rely on the local public transport schedule or pay hefty fees to the taxi drivers. You can head to Dortmund Zoo with your family or check out the German Football Museum or Westfalenpark before heading to your hotel. You could also take a drive out to Düsseldorf, roughly an hour away, and one of the most sought-after destinations in the country for its booming fashion industry and captivating art scene.
  • Avis, Budget and Europcar are a few of the international companies offering car rental in Dortmund and the Dortmund International Airport. These companies have desks located on the Ground Floor, by the Arrivals area in the airport terminal and keep the rental cars parked in the P1 neighbouring car park on the same level. Booking your rental car online through KAYAK will typically save you time and money when you arrive. You won't need to fill out paperwork and in-person rentals are usually more costly.
  • Car rental in Dortmund is as easy as it gets, from picking up your car to driving it on the streets. If you're used to driving on the left-hand side of the road, be aware that it's the opposite in Germany. Because the city is a low emission zone, there is plenty of public transport and cyclists, which you'll need to keep an eye out for. Pedestrians don't often walk on the road but if there is a pedestrian crossing, they'll walk without looking and it's your responsibility to stop for them.
  • There aren't many difficulties when it comes to driving in Dortmund. The city is clean, the roads are very well-maintained and wide enough to accommodate all vehicle types. Traffic also flows well thanks to strategically placed traffic lights and roundabouts. If you're driving in the city centre, you'll need to keep an eye out for pedestrians and cyclists. Peak traffic times are during the morning commute around 6:30am and the afternoon commute from around 5pm. Avoid the roads during these times if you don't like sitting in traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Dortmund at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car in Dortmund

  • How much is the price of fuel in Dortmund?

    The average price of fuel in Dortmund is R129,26 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between R1 551 and R2 068, depending on the car size.

  • How can I find car hires near me in Dortmund?

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

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Dortmund?

    Dortmund is a low-emission zone, so you'll be required to have a green badge, which is for cars that produce lower emissions than regular vehicles. The car rental company will be able to point you in the right direction. A hybrid or electric car would be some of the best choices. Other than that, the choice of car depends on your needs. Smaller cars tend to use less fuel and are easier to navigate, but larger SUVs are best for that.

  • What’s the speed limit in Dortmund?

    The speed limits in Dortmund are universal and the same throughout Germany. If you're travelling in the city limits, you'll need to be at, or below, 50 km/h. If you're driving in the city centre near places where children might be, like schools, there will often be a limit of around 30 km/h, while the major motorways have a cap of 100 km/h. Bear in mind, if you're travelling along certain sections of the Autobahn, there will be a limit of 130 km/h.

  • Where are the best places to park in Dortmund?

    There is no free parking in Dortmund and the city doesn't offer any on-street parking capacity. Your only parking options are dedicated car parks in and around the city centre. These will issue you a ticket upon entry and you'll pay for the time you were there before returning to your vehicle. Parking laws are strictly enforced so don't take a chance by parking on the street or in front of shops.

Pros:

Very friendly when arriving close to closing.

Cons:

1) Instructions on opening gas tank were wrong. Had to call cousin to look up on internet how to do it. 2) Location is hard to find. Recommend putting picture on internet to help people be able to identify it. And / or mention the HUGE car wash next door. 3) When returning I asked 'How do I get to the airport?' (since the enterprise is not at the airport), answer 'I do not know, you can catch a train down the street or I can call a taxi'. Of course at the airport they had brochures explaining how to get there from the city. These brochures would be useful.

Cons:

The car have no insurance, and a standard insurance cost over 400 euro for 10 days. I paid 205 euro for 9 days and they want to charge me at list 400 extra. I never encounter this kind of situation, usually the car is insurred within a 1000-2000 euro, now I should pay 28.000 euro if the car was stolen or full damage. Then a car was a Peugeot, a kind of SUV but actually a small car instead a compact, and with 8-10 liter of petrol consume. Strange choice in Germany for a rental.

Pros:

Pick-up super-fast and friendly, right in the airport. Great car with low mileage.

Cons:

Insurance is a killer - not stated on the quote when I booked the car. 50 euros/day for a compact-sized car - come on people, that's 19,000 euros per year in insurance premiums alone - enough to pay off the full car over less than two years. Unlikely to book with Sixt again if they maintain these killer premiums.
