KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kaiserslautern

  • Booking car hire in Kaiserslautern is a great option for anyone who wants to be able to take lots of road or day trips during their travels. There are a number of interesting nearby towns, including Freinsheim, which is around 45 minutes from Kaiserslautern by car. Trier, Germany's oldest city, is around 1h 20min away by car. While there are often train or bus connections to these cities, it usually takes longer than driving. If your Kaiserslautern car hire company allows cross-border travel, you can even travel into Luxembourg, Belgium and northern France in three to four hours.
  • Saarbrücken Airport (SCN) is the closest airport to Kaiserslautern, and you can find a few companies with vehicles at the airport. Other companies may offer transportation services to their offices in the city or bring the vehicle to the airport for you. The closest major airport is Frankfurt am Main (FRA). You can find car hire companies at both terminals in their main lobbies. The vehicles will usually be located on-site. It takes roughly 1h 20min to drive to Kaiserslautern from Frankfurt am Main, and about 50 minutes from Saarbrücken Airport.
  • It may be worth getting a German SIM card or adding a GPS to your car hire in Kaiserslautern. You may find it difficult to get around without one outside the major cities. You should also be aware of Germany's drink-driving laws. The general blood alcohol limit is 0.05%, but if you're involved in an accident or are speeding, that limit drops to 0.03%. Generally, it's best to avoid drinking before driving altogether.
  • The most difficult part of driving anywhere in Germany for most first-time visitors is the Autobahn. On these roads, there are no speed limits and many drivers find them overwhelming when using them for the first time. Firstly, make sure you've passed a sign of a white circle with five black stripes before you increase your speed. These signal the true start of the Autobahn. If it's raining, you should also keep an eye out for signs that read "bei Nässe" with a speed limit underneath. These indicate the speed you have to follow if the road is wet. Always keep a distance between you and the car in front of you, as sudden slows or stops are possible. Finally, remember that you can only use the left lane for passing and are expected to do it quickly.
  • Book your rental car in Kaiserslautern at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Kaiserslautern are around 60% cheaper than other car types, on average

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

    You might find a smaller vehicle will come in handy when driving in Kaiserslautern and surrounding towns. You may encounter narrow roads and limited parking that are more easily navigated with a smaller vehicle. However, a standard car won't limit your travel plans, so that can be a better option if you'll be transporting more luggage.

  • What's the speed limit in Kaiserslautern?

    While driving in the city, the limit is usually 50 km/h but it can drop to 30 km/h in residential and school zones. Outside built-up areas, the limit is generally 100 km/h. The recommended speed limit on the Autobahn is 130 km/h, and there are some sections where this is an enforced limit. While using car hire in Kaiserslautern, remember that these speed limits are strict and driving just 3 km/h over the limit can result in fines.

  • Where are the best places to park in Kaiserslautern?

    You can find on-street and covered parking throughout Kaiserslautern. There's a very handy covered multi-storey car park in central Kaiserslautern on Rosenstraße. Most parking spaces cost between €2 (about ₹184) to €4 (around ₹366) for two hours. There are also Park & Ride car parks around the outside of the city connected to bus routes into the town.

Pros:

I like that we got a free upgrade because the 7 passenger van wasn’t available

Cons:

The car was dirty, they didn’t have the car at the place of pickup had to drive 1hr 20 min to next pick up location, the had to stop at a enterprise 1hr and 15 min out of the way from our destination because it needed an oil change and air in the tires.

Cons:

Don't book with enterprise. I rented a van to transport my two friends, aunt, uncle, and Mom and dad who were visiting Europe for the first time. A couple days before I called to confirm my reservation and they informed me that they did not have the van I reserved. I asked them when they planned to inform me of this and they did not have an answer. The manager had also stepped out when I asked to speak with him or her. Avid at Ramstein was great.

Mar 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was ready as promised when I came to pick it up.

Cons:

I booked online, and when I got there they told me that the rental was without car insurance. To purchase insurance would have more than doubled the cost. How can you offer a car rental without insurance? Just seems like a price gouging tactic. Car was really dirty on the outside when I picked it up.

Sep 2016

KAYAK

Cons:

My frustration is not with KAYAK, but rather with the Hertz office I used. The car I reserved was not there when I arrived (I was delayed 1 hour). I ended up with a smaller car (FIAT 500). Although I did not pay as much for this car as the one I had reserved would have cost, it was a higher rate than was listed on the website for the same vehicle. I may rent from Hertz again in the future, but defiantly not from the office in K-town Germany.
