KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Hanover

  • Hanover car rentals offer a cost-effective alternative compared to local taxis and multiple public transport journeys when visiting your desired landmarks in Hanover. Depending solely on taxis can quickly accumulate expenses as you navigate your must-see destinations. Opting for car rentals in Hanover increases reliability for your vacation. Renting a car allows you to explore at your own pace and access places that may be more difficult to reach using public transportation. Whether you're interested in enjoying the tranquil surroundings of Codorus State Park or immersing yourself in the fascinating history of Gettysburg National Military Park, having a car at your disposal enables you to access these attractions conveniently.
  • Renting a car at Harrisburg Airport (MDT) is a hassle-free experience. The rental car offices are conveniently located in the baggage claim area, allowing easy access upon arrival. Show your driver's license at the customer service counters, and you'll receive your contract and keys. The rental cars are parked in a lot right outside the baggage claim area, making it convenient to pick up your vehicle. While an airport shuttle may not exist, the short walk from the terminal to the rental car offices ensures a seamless transition.
  • When driving car rentals in Hanover, familiarize yourself with the allowed road signs and regulations, including speed limits, stop signs, and traffic signals. Please pay attention to pedestrians as they may cross the road unexpectedly. In Hanover, the legal driving age is typically 18 years, but this may vary depending on the type of vehicle. It is strictly prohibited to drink and drive, with severe penalties for those caught driving under the influence of alcohol. Always adhere to traffic laws and exercise caution while driving in Hanover.
  • In Hanover, the rush hour occurs during the morning and evening, typically between 7 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 6 pm. During these times, traffic congestion is prevalent, making driving more challenging. Some heavily affected roads include the A2 motorway, the B3 highway, and major routes like the Hildesheimer Straße and Berliner Allee. Also, Hanover experiences approximately 1.4 inches of snowfall during December. Driving conditions during this month may be more challenging due to snow and ice on the roads.
  • Book your car hire in Hanover at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Hanover are around 7% cheaper than other car types, on average

The city experiences heavy traffic congestion, especially during peak hours, making maneuvering through narrow streets and finding parking spaces challenging. A compact car offers the advantage of easy maneuverability and the ability to navigate through tight spaces. However, if you travel to Hanover with your whole family, we recommend booking a cheap 8-seater. This allows you to accommodate everyone comfortably while benefiting from the compact car's advantages for city driving.

  • What’s the speed limit in Hanover?

    While driving car rentals in Hanover, the speed limits can vary depending on the specific roads and areas within the town. The default speed limit on most residential streets is 25 mph. However, paying attention to posted speed limit signs is essential, as they may vary on different roads. Some main roads and highways in and around Hanover, such as Route 94 or Route 116, may have higher speed limits, typically around 35 to 45 mph. Adhering to the speed limits ensures safety for drivers and pedestrians in the city.

  • Where are the best places to park in Hanover?

    When driving car rentals in Hanover, several convenient parking options are available. The best places to park include the municipal parking lots throughout the downtown area, such as the parking lot on Carlisle Street and Broadway. These lots typically offer hourly rates ranging from $1 to $2. Street parking is also available but may be limited in certain areas and typically has a time restriction. Visitors should be mindful of signage and follow parking regulations to avoid fines. Be sure to arrive early during peak times to secure a parking spot.

Liked that it was a new vehicle with low miles. Gave me the confidence that it should be a reliable vehicle. It was reliable, had no issues with it at all. Overall great experience. Maybe a bit pricey. Staff at the Gettysburg location was great.

Pros:

Gary, the manager handled my pickup. Great experience and easy as could possibly be. I will probably rent from them in the future. Also, return was smooth, I wish I gotten the person's name. It was easy, no surprises, no extra changes, good stuff.

Cons:

I have no complaints.

There was no car at enterprise car rental for me. They had the reservation, but they did not have a car available. It’s completely ruined our family vacation plans, as well as my parents who are waiting for us to visit them. It was the last time I will use your services or enterprise rental car.

Cons:

When I showed up for my reservation, they told me they had no cars. I made a reservation the night before and when I arrived to pick up my car, I was stranded there because I had no way to get anywhere else. I had to walk on some busy main roads with no shoulder or sidewalk to get to another car rental place. False advertising for cars that were not actually there and it left me in an unsafe situation.

Pros:

My pick up in Gettysburg PA went well. Very professional.

Cons:

The vehicle didn't drive well. It felt like it was badly in need of an alignment. I decided to exchange it in Kansas City International Airport. When I called them, the phone would ring for several minutes before they would answer. Twice someone lifted the handset and just hung it up. When I finally got someone and did the exchange, I realized an hour later I had left something in the car I had turned in. I called (and again struggled to get someone on the phone) and was told they would check the car and call me back. Three hours later, they hadn't called back. I called again and was told they didn't know which car I'd returned. It seems strange that their computers can't tell them that but I gave them the car information and was told that they'd call me back. An hour and a half later, with no response, I decided to just drive in and ask in person. Then they said they'd go check the car and brought my item to me two minutes later. Worst customer service ever. Also, when I drove in, there was only one other customer there. If didn't appear that they were exceptionally busy. So disappointed with Hertz.
