KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Leipzig

  • By using a car hire in Leipzig, you can take control and explore the 297 km squared area of the city at your own leisure. By driving a car hire in Leipzig, you can choose where you go, when you go and how long you stay there for without having to worry about the restrictions of the timetable for the local public transport. This will allow you the freedom to explore the nearby forests, or visit the closest cities, such as Dresden or Berlin.
  • The nearest airport to Leipzig is the Leipzig Airport (LES), which has plenty of car rental companies to choose from that will allow you to explore the local area in your Leipzig car hire. You can choose form Sunnycars, Thrifty, Enterprise, Alamo, and Avis. To find the car rental offices, you should follow the signs for the car rental area ,which is located within Terminal B. The opening hours may vary depending on the car rental company, so we recommend that you investigate this when planning your trip.
  • When driving your car hire in Leipzig, you will need to follow the national driving laws of Germany. You must drive on the right-hand side of the road, and you can only turn right at a red light if you have permission from a designated filter light. Be careful as you drive through built-up areas of the city, as this is where jaywalking is more typical, and you have a responsibility for the health and safety of the pedestrians when you are behind the wheel, even if they cross somewhere illegally.
  • Leipzig gets both hot and cold weather, so depending on when you go, you should be prepared to check that your car hire in Leipzig has all of the required equipment. In summer it is hot so we recommend that you check your coolant liquid levels and your tyre pressure, while in winter you may encounter snow and be required to install snow chains or snow tyres on your vehicle. All of this can make driving in Leipzig more complicated, particularly in the busiest parts of the city, such as the city centre, or during rush hour, which is normally before and after the typical office or school hours.
  • Book your car hire in Leipzig at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Leipzig are around 2% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • What car is recommended for driving in Leipzig?

    If you are driving in winter, and you would like to explore outside the city, then an SUV or a 4X4 is recommended as these vehicles are best prepared to have fewer problems with the snow or the rugged terrain. However, if you travel there in summer and only plan on staying within the city, then you may prefer to use a compact car, or an economy car, as they are easier to drive through the city and park in the small parking spaces.

  • What is the speed limit in Leipzig?

    The speed limit in Leipzig is displayed in kmph and you will find that in built- up areas it is 50 kmph, unless you are driving in an area that is either residential or has a school, where it will be reduced to 30 kmph. Outside of the built-up areas, the speed limit is 100 kmph, and on the dual carriageways it is 110 kmph. Famously, the German motorway, the autobahn, does not have a speed limit but it is recommended that you travel at 130 kmph.

  • What are the best places for parking in Leipzig?

    You can find plenty of free park and ride car parks in the city of Leipzig, which is perfect if you don’t want to bring your car hire into the city centre. You can find plenty of metered areas in the Promenadenring area, which tend to use a traditional pay-and-display process, or you can go and park in the 24-hour car park at APCOA Parking Deutschland, on Lotterstrasse 1.

The person on the counter was not nice. When J approached him he said he won’t have cars for another 1 or 2 hours. It is not clear why it said they had cars in that location when they actually did not

The manager gave us no choice but to rent a van a day earlier than I had reserved it for. She maintained that I had ordered an 8-seat vehicle when I had clearly reserved a nine-seat van. The "explanation" was that here was high demand-- but the company had a full week to make available the Mercedes Vito I had reserved. The "similar" vehicle given to us (read: forced upon us) was a Volkswagen Caravelle, a far inferior van with mini-USB ports, one coffee cup holder (in the front), a standard radio with no capability for pairing the handy (i,.e., no navigation system), and uncomfortable seats. A rear seatbelt was difficult to find and attach. Nonetheless, I ended up paying the same amount of money for the vehicle as I would have with the Mercedes. It was a really unfortunate situation since I was showing my nine-member family parts of Germany and Switzerland for the first time, no thanks to Enterprise, City "Center" (Prager Strasse). I believe I should receive half of the money back for the inconveniences, but it is highly doubtful that will happen or that this review will even be made available.
