Cologne Bonn  Airport Car Rental Mini Guide

Cologne-Bonn Airport is equidistant between the two cities and is a modern, fully equipped airport from which you can collect your Rental Car.

If you have booked a hire car, the car hire company desks are located on level D arrivals. The route out of the airport is easy with access to the route 59 autobahn gained via KennedyStrasse. Route 59 will take you north to Cologne or south to Bonn. The airport does get quite busy with queues forming at the car hire desks and it is often worth sending a driver through to sort out car hire whilst others collect the baggage. There is a helpful airport information desk for general airport enquiries in the public area together with a local tourist information desk offering leaflets and information on attractions and accommodation in the area.

Numerous airlines fly into Cologne-Bonn, ranging from national carrier scheduled airlines to low cost airlines with routes to and from Stansted, Gatwick and Edinburgh among other UK airports and Ryanair from Dublin and Cork.
