Hamburg Car Rental Mini Guide

Hamburg is in the north of Germany just south of Denmark at the mouth of the river Elbe. Not only can you hire cars from Hamburg, but we have low-cost vehicles available as part of our car hire Hamburg airport fleet. Just fill out some details and we can give you a quote. To drive to Hamburg from Berlin you will use the A24 road, the A7 gets you there from Hanover and the A1 goes to Hamburg from Bremen.

Unusually the airport closes at night, meaning that any delayed flights get rerouted to the other German airports such as Hanover or Frankfurt. If you were hoping to find a cheap flight option with Ryanair there is another airport, Hamburg Lübeck Blankensee Airport. You can also go from Lübeck Blankensee to Milan Bergamo, Pisa, London Stansted, Dublin and Shannon, Glasgow, Stockholm Stavsta and Gdansk in Poland with Wizzair.
