Lübeck Guide

Guide

The skyline of Lubeck is punctuated by seven magnificent towering steeples, giving it an awe-inspiring feeling. The city became the capital of the Hanseatic League in the 13th century and was an important trade route all along the Baltic Sea, as far as Russia. Located on the Baltic coast, Lubeck is an ideal base from which to explore parts of Scandinavia as well. Arrange car hire in Lubeck for the duration of your holiday, and obtain the freedom to see the sights without the hassle and high costs of tours and excursions. With your own vehicle you can avoid the crowds and experience places of interest without a mass of people.

Explore Lubeck

Today, Lubeck still basks in the glory of the Hanseatic merchants, who showed off their wealth by lavishly decorating their homes and churches. Today Lubeck is a UNESCO World Heritage site. On another note, not many people are aware of this, but Lubeck is famous as the world capital of marzipan!

The Altstadt or old city is wonderful to explore on foot. It is surrounded by the Trave River, which itself is inter-connected with canals, giving the sensation of being on an island. Most Germans will know the famous Holstentor, a Lubeck landmark, which used to be the entrance to the city. The Rathaus and Rathausplatz (city hall and city square) trace their origin to 1230, but have been rebuilt several times since. However, the mixed Gothic and Romanesque architecture is a wonderful sight. While at the Rathaus, don’t miss sampling or buying some marzipan at the famous Niederegger shop nearby.

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).
