Esslingen Guide


The area of Esslingen is located in the southwest quadrant of Germany, in Stuttgart, and is first referenced in the year 777. In the mid-thirteenth century, it obtained status as a market city, which brought in residents from all over the country. The region was very fortunate when American troops were stationed in Esslingen, which caused much of it to be spared the damage of World War II in 1945. Today, the city has a residential population of just fewer than 100,000 and is a thriving community with a strong educational base.

The University of Applied Science makes it's home in Esslingen and is well known for the strict standards and high profile graduates. The libraries are grand, and the architecture very art nuveau' in nature. In general, the culture of the city is centered around the University and it's buildings. Each is unique in it's own way and boasts elegant tile work, elaborate paintings and etchings, and stunning stone work and masonry. The cost of living in Esslingen is relatively high, but with amenities within walking distance in many cases, many find it relatively affordable.

Don't be fooled by the educational foundation. There is much more to do in Esslingen than teach, read, or study. Visitors may enjoy the romantic canoe tour on the Neckar canals, or maybe a history of wine country. Museums featuring both modern and medieval art can be found, and galleries feature local and international works to purchase or simply admire. The unique thing about Esslingen is it's modern amenities with an obviously historic flair, which can be seen in the architecture, eateries and pubs, and shops. The free market is a must see, especially for those first time visitors who want a taste of what southern Germany has to offer.

Traveling around the small area of Esslingen is best done by mass transit, although if you are lucky enough to find street parking, we suggest you do so. If you plan on doing a lot of shopping, you will certainly get your exercise, especially if you enjoy the moderate temperatures and climate.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
