KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Erlangen

  • Car rental in Erlangen allows you more flexibility and freedom with your journey, when compared with other modes of transport, such as a bus or train. You can come and go at a time suitable for you, whilst you’re also able to travel direct to your destination. For instance, you can drive to Dormitz in about 20 minutes. If you were to take a bus for this journey, it would take in the region of 30 minutes, and you’d also have to adhere to the timetable.
  • Nürnberg Airport (NUE) is one of the most convenient airports to reach from Erlangen, so it’s an ideal location to collect your car from. Once you’ve passed through Customs and collected your luggage, you can find the car hire branches with ease. For instance, Flex To Go and Alamo are conveniently located inside the airport Arrivals Hall. Your Erlangen car hire company will provide you with the keys to your vehicle once you have completed the documentation, shown ID and paid for the car.
  • Car rental in Erlangen is a great way to see this historic city. Drivers are relatively respectful and calm here, which makes it a great place to drive a hire car. Jaywalking is illegal in Germany. However, not all pedestrians abide by this, so you must remain vigilant to those crossing the road in areas that they shouldn’t. There is also a bit of cycling culture in this country, so you should frequently consult your mirrors and be aware of your surroundings.
  • When driving an Erlangen hire car, you will see that traffic can get very busy, particularly during the weekday rush hour when locals are driving to and from their places of work. This is from around 6:00 to 9:00 and about 17:00 to 20:00. It’s recommended that you avoid driving at these times and instead, drive in the late morning and early afternoon. One road that gets especially busy is motorway 73. If you can avoid this road, it’s recommended you do so. An alternative road you can try is Schallershofer Street, which should have less traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Erlangen at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

If you plan to head into the German countryside, then a more robust vehicle is helpful. For instance, an SUV provides you with enhanced traction for steeper terrain, as well as 4x4 capabilities for a more controlled drive.

  • What’s the speed limit in Erlangen?

    You must adhere to the speed limits in Erlangen, or you risk being prosecuted by local authorities. If you drive within the limits, you’re also less likely to be involved in an accident. Drivers that are caught by a speed camera will be fined by their car hire company, who are also required by law to pass your details to law enforcement. In the city, the top speed is 50 km/h. On countryside roads, you can drive as fast as 100 km/h, whereas, on a motorway, the top speed limit is 130 km/h.

This costs about €5 (456₹) for 2 hours, and is only a short walk from the popular shops and restaurants. Alternatively you can park at Parking Garage Erlangen Arcaden, which is also in the centre, for around €10 (₹912) for 5 hours.
