Top tips for hiring a car at Hamburg Airport

  • Car hire at Hamburg Airport (HAM) is a great way to complete your journey in an efficient manner. As it is only about a 25min journey, you might find it a better alternative than other modes of transport, such as buses, which you have to wait for. It is also only about a 15min drive away from motorway 7, which runs the whole length of Germany, from north to south. This means you can get to other regions with ease as well.
  • Not only does a car hire at Hamburg Airport provide you with great flexibility to continue your journey at your own pace, but it also gives you flexibility in other ways. For example, some agencies such as Europcar or Flizzr provide you with the option of free cancellation, providing you do so a minimum of 48h prior to collecting your vehicle. This is great for anyone who might have a change of plans at the last minute.
  • It is always advised to check the returns policy of each individual agency before you hire from them, as they tend to vary from company to company. For example, at Hamburg Airport, Europcar does not provide an out of office service, so make sure you do not need to return your vehicle after they are closed. However, if you need to return your vehicle at an inconvenient time, then SIXT have an around the clock returns policy. All you need to do is drop the car off in the return zone and then put the keys in the drop box near the exit.
  • If you want to make sure you have the best options available for your car hire at Hamburg Airport, then it is advised that you collect your car on a weekday rather than a weekend. During the weekend, you might find that some agencies, such as Thrifty, operate within reduced hours, so you will have less vehicles to choose from. If you collect your car during a weekday though, the majority of agencies will be available throughout the day and into the early evening.
  • Book your car hire at Hamburg Airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at Hamburg Airport

  • What type of extras can I include in my booking at the airport?

    When you are getting your Hamburg Airport car hire, you can ensure that you get some great additional extras which make your trip better in every way. For instance, if you are driving with a company like SIXT then you can include an additional driver to share your time behind the wheel, whereas if you are driving with children then you can include a child seat with most car hire agencies.

  • How old do I need to be to hire a car at HAM Airport?

    It is likely that the minimum age restrictions of each company vary depending on which one you hire a vehicle from. So, check in advance to ensure you meet the criteria. For example, at SIXT, you can hire a vehicle if you are 18, but with Enterprise you need to be at least 21 years of age. There are also surcharges for some drivers if you are under a certain age. For example, SIXT will charge anyone a fee who is under the age of 23. You will also be restricted in terms of the range of vehicles if you are under a certain age, as companies prevent younger drivers from hiring more powerful vehicles.

  • Which documents will I need to hire a car?

    At HAM, you need to ensure that you have the correct documents prepared otherwise you will not be able to hire a vehicle. You will need to make sure you have a full driving licence that is valid for the entirety of the hire period. In addition, you need to make sure that you have a major credit or debit card which is in your name.

  • Which car hire companies will pick you up at Hamburg Airport?

    Car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Hamburg Airport to off-airport locations include Alamo, Avis, BUCHBINDER , Budget, Dollar, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Europcar, FLIZZR, Global Rent A Car, and GLOBALDRIVE .

We rented from the airport in Hamburg and our car was very clean, comfortable, and fully loaded with options, despite booking an economy car. This was a very different experience than the car we received from Europcar at the Munich airport, which came dirty, with a low tire pressure light on, and was the most basic modern car I've ever driven. I paid nearly the same rate for both.

Cons:

SIXT had no attendant present at the drop off, it was a general drop off with other agents present, but nobody from SIXT. on top of that I was accused of damaging the car, yet it sat their unattended, because I had to leave it in line, to make it to my flight. I never had any in person experience at the drop off.

Great car at a great price. At the desk though, the operator looked at me but chose to answer the phone first and left me waiting for some time. He also ask you to sign to say that the car has no damage before you're sent to collect it some distance away. Shouldn't I see the car before I agree that it's OK?

I had a reservation for a compact car at 16:00. Flight was delayed so arrived 20:00 at the counter and was told they only hold cars for 1 hour past reservation time(at an airport rental office where flight delays are not uncommon?). Had to take a larger vehicle and was charged for the difference...

Pros:

Car (Skoda) seemed to be an upgrade from VW Golf; car was roomy & fairly fuel-efficient.

Cons:

I arrived at the airport at 0800; AVIS did not open until 0900. Found no "Parkschein" in the car. Automatic engine turn-off/on was annoying (that's Skoda's problem, not Avis') Drop-off was terribly slow and seemingly disorganized
