Why you should book a rental car for your stay in Mainz

If you are used to the mobility that your own car provides, it is difficult to get along with local public transport - especially in a foreign city. By the time you have studied the timetables and know which stations are located where, you would have already reached your desired destination comfortably with your rental car and its modern navigation system. You can comfortably compare different car rentals in Mainz here, on Even if the public transport in Mainz is very well developed, the rental car offers you very big advantages. You are flexible in your scheduling due to the use of the rental car. The rental car gives you mobility and independence. In addition, the rental car you choose may have long been a dream come true. If you have always wanted to drive a convertible, then choose the appropriate car at the car rental company and enjoy the convertible feeling for the duration of the rental period. If you compare prices on car rentals, you're sure to find a car hire that suits your needs and is affordable. When making comparisons, pay attention to the price-performance ratio. Only if this is balanced, you can be sure that the rental car is really cheap. Cheap offers with a low range of services should not be confused with attractive offers that are both good and inexpensive. Therefore, a critical price comparison in terms of rental cars is always worthwhile. A trip to the sister city Wiesbaden is always worth the trip. The two state capitals (Hesse/Rhineland-Palatinate) are only separated by the Rhine. 

Your rental car and its insurance - fully comprehensive without excess?

If you want to rent a car, you should pay special attention to insurance issues. Usually the insurance offers the option of fully comprehensive insurance without excess. Now the offer is not necessarily cheap, but the additional costs for the fully comprehensive insurance option without excess are quite reasonable. Of course, other options are also available with the insurance, but fully comprehensive insurance without excess offers the optimum insurance cover. Check the additional price and then decide whether the all-round insurance cover is worth the surcharge for fully comprehensive insurance without excess.

Mainz - the city of Gutenberg on the Rhine

The city of Mainz lies on the Rhine and is the state capital of Rhineland-Palatinate. Mainz has over 200,000 inhabitants, making it the largest city in Rhineland-Palatinate. The university city can look back on an interesting history and scores with numerous sights. But besides history there is also the present, and today Mainz presents itself as a lively and charming city. Locals and visitors love the special atmosphere and way of life. It is not for nothing that Mainz is considered a stronghold of Rhenish carnival, the cheerful basic chord can also be felt in everyday life. Several radio and television stations are based in Mainz, including the Second German Television with its funny pause figures, the lovable Mainzelmännchen. One of the most famous sons of the city and known worldwide is Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of modern book printing and the printing press.

Places of interest in Mainz

Mainz inspires with countless buildings from several centuries, which reflect the history of the city. There are relics from Roman times, including the Drususstein, the Roman Gate and the Dativius Victor Arch. The Haus zum Stein and the Iron Tower, which today houses art exhibitions, date from the Middle Ages. The city experienced a heyday during the electoral period. Numerous buildings from that period have survived, which still inspire the viewer today with the balance of their architecture and their harmony. These include the magnificent Electoral Palace, the Old University, the Old Armoury and the Electoral Stables, the Golden-Ross Barracks. Other buildings worth seeing are the Staatstheater, the citadel on the Jakobsberg and the beautiful Theodor-Heuss-Bridge. The bridge is one of the most beautiful bridge constructions spanning the Rhine. Numerous monuments and fountains determine the image of the city, for example the Gutenberg monument, the market fountain or the nail column. Interesting museums such as the State Museum or the Cathedral Museum attract visitors with interesting special exhibitions. Among the most important sacral buildings in Mainz are the Romanesque Cathedral of St. Martin, the Gothic hall church of St. Stephen and the Christ Church with its impressive dome. 

Experience Mainz and be mobile

The cheerful way of life that prevails in Mainz can best be felt at the many festivals and events. There is the enchanting Rhein-Frühling in Mainz, the Oktoberfest, the museum night, the Christmas markets, the summer lights and last but not least the wine festivals. Wine plays an important role in the lively city of Mainz, as does the special Mainz cuisine. Stroll through the enchanting promenades, enjoy shopping in the shopping centres or the delightful little shops and take a break in one of the cultivated restaurants. Here they serve you delicacies of the regional cuisine, for example the Spundekäs´ or the Handkäs´ with music. The combination "Worscht, Weck und Woi" (sausage, bread rolls and wine) is also a typical Mainz speciality.

Mainz scores with excellent transport connections

Mainz is very easy to reach by long-distance bus and train, but does not have its own airport. However, Frankfurt am Main International Airport, Germany's largest airport and one of the world's most important airports, is only 25 kilometers away and easily accessible.

Airport Distance to Mainz IATA-Code
Frankfurt Airport 25 km FRA

There is a direct bus connection between Mainz and Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, some 80 kilometres away. Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is a popular destination for budget flights. At the train stations and airports you will find a wide range of car rental services. You can get a rental car there on arrival and start exploring the city, unless you first want to visit your accommodation. During the city exploration in Mainz you will notice a special feature that is unique worldwide, namely the coloured street signs. Since 1853, the roads that run perpendicular to the Rhine have been marked with red signs. Blue signs show the roads that run parallel to the Rhine. Smaller streets, especially in the districts further away from the Rhine, have white road signs. Mainz has an environmental zone in the city centre, where only vehicles with the corresponding environmental sticker are permitted. 

Compare the offers for a rental car - it's worth it

A comparison of the car rental offers is useful and important in order to find offers that are good and cheap at the same time. But you can't just keep an eye on the rents, you also have to consider the services. Because the offers are only good and favourable if the price-performance ratio is right.

The offers of the car rental usually have extensions, which can be optionally added. These include, for example, additional drivers, one-way rentals with return to other stations or insurance issues. Here you should check which additional options are relevant for you.

Rental car Mainz: additional driver

An additional driver makes sense if you want to cover longer distances and take turns driving. The additional driver is a relief for the driver. But the additional driver option is usually associated with higher rents. You should therefore consider whether you need the additional driver or whether you can do without this option. The same applies to one-way rentals.

Rental car Mainz: One way rental

If you are planning to return the rental car to a location other than the pick-up location, these are one-way rentals. They are usually subject to a surcharge, as the car rental company must take care of the return of the vehicle when returning it to other stations. Therefore, one-way rentals are not as cheap as those where the car is returned to the station where it was rented. If you are renting a car in a specific region only, the one-way rental option is not recommended.

Rental car Mainz: The deposit

The amount of the deposit is not uniform, but it is required worldwide when renting a vehicle. Deposits vary depending on the car rental company. But since you will get the deposit back when you return the vehicle, the deposit doesn't really matter when comparing the offers.

Conclusion of the car rental in Mainz:

Mainz is worth a visit. Do not only explore the city itself with your rental car, but also make a detour into the charming surroundings, for example into the lovely Rheingau or into the romantic Middle Rhine Valley.
