If you want to see everything Hamburg has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Budget. Don't spend time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own vehicle allows you to go to the locations you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your next vacation to Germany more enjoyable with a Budget rental car.
With everything to do in and around the Hamburg region, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel while on your trip. Whether you have to have dinner at the restaurant that has gotten great reviews across town or try some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own auto to see and do as much as possible during your trip. No matter where you end up staying in Hamburg, if you wish to get the most out of your time in the city, having your car is key.
CarRentals.com works with many of the best rental car businesses in the industry. Founded during Los Angeles, California around 1958, Budget always works to provide the best rates for its customers. With a name like Budget, you know this company will try to get you the lowest price.
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But booking your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Hamburg is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Hamburg. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Hamburg trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Hamburg. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
We encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your car with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Budget.
Hamburg certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Hamburg.
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another Budget. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Hamburg, having your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to explore more of Germany, you can drive when you like, without trying to hail a cab or sign up for a ride-share.
Before you head out of town, book your Budget Hamburg rental car and zip off to take in all the must-see sights. Go with CarRentals.com and speed along the open road in Hamburg, Germany.
