What is the most popular rental car category in Schleswig-Holstein?

A dream to maneuver and fuel-efficient — it's hardly surprising that compact cars are the most popular type of rental vehicle in Schleswig-Holstein. And if you plan to cruise the lively streets of Luebeck or Flensburg, you'll be happy you went for a smaller set of wheels too. Zip past traffic, easily parallel park, and navigate narrow lanes — bigger doesn't always mean better!

That said, Schleswig-Holstein is famous for its forests, lakes, and coastal plains. It'd be a shame not to get out of town to take in those jaw-dropping scenes. If that sounds like something you want to do, look into an SUV or a full-size car. Even if you're not planning to venture off-road, you'll be grateful for the extra legroom.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Schleswig-Holstein?

For some of us, owning a high-end vehicle is a little (or a lot!) out of reach. But renting your dream ride is far more achievable than you might think! Imagine cruising the open roads in a classy convertible, even if it's only for a few days. Or maybe all you're chasing is a set of wheels to get you safely from A to B. Flashy or thrifty? Whatever you decide, one thing's for sure — there's a rental car to suit your style in Schleswig-Holstein.
