Hamburg Fuhlsbüttel Airport Guide

Car Hire

The fifth busiest of German international air hubs, Hamburg Airport is located in the city’s Fuhlsbuttel suburb, five miles from the city centre. Set just off Hamburg’s third ring road, it’s linked to downtown by the S-Bahn suburban rail line and several coach and bus services. For a fast getaway, booking car hire in advance is the most practical option, as the A7/B433 fast roads give easy access to the heart of the city and its hotels.

Who to Book With
Car hire providers at the airport include trusted international companies such as Hertz, Avis, Europcar and Sixt, as well as local company Terstappen. Rental cars are collected and returned at the car hire parking area opposite Parking P5 and rental offices, open between 07:00 and 23:00, are found in the Arrivals hall.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents in order to pick up a vehicle:

- Your UK or home country photo driver’s licence
- The credit card used for the reservation
- A passport to confirm your ID
- Confirmation of booking

Due to its excellent autobahn system and well-maintained secondary roads, Germany offers a pleasant self-drive experience, although drivers should note that speeds on the autobahns are far faster than on motorways in most other European countries. Traffic police are active here, with on-the-spot fines for speeding. Refusal to pay can result in your car being confiscated. The wearing of seatbelts is compulsory if fitted and winter tyres must be fitted in season, with the carrying of snow chains recommended. The older areas of German cities are congested, with parking provided on- and off-street at a relatively high cost. Pay-and-display or disc parking is the norm, with discs purchased at petrol stations, newsstands or police stations. Most petrol stations accept card payments.

See our guide to Germany for more information on driving here.


Hamburg Airport offers a choice of ground transportation, including shuttle and local buses, a rail link, taxi and limo hire, as well as car hire for fast access to your final destination. Four inexpensive local bus services and one limited-stop bus are found immediately outside the terminals, and the rail station is located on the complex, giving a 30-minute trip to the city centre at a fare of around £2.30. Taxis are available, but are expensive.

The rail link from the airport to Hamburg’s Central Station is via the S-Bahn S1 commuter line, taking 30 minutes or so. Trains run every 10 to 20 minutes between 04:00 and 24:00, providing service for passengers on all arriving flights. If taking the return journey to the airport, be sure to choose one of the first three cars, as the remainder of the train splits off and runs to another suburb.

Taxi ranks are found outside the Arrivals exits of terminals 1 and 2, with all cab companies operating on the complex contracted to the airport authority. For trips to places outside the city limits, fares should be negotiated, and trips around the central district cost around £6. Taxis can be booked in advance online, but are twice as expensive as a negotiated fare on arrival. Popular suppliers include Hansa-Taxi, Taxi Hamburg and Taxiruf.

Taxi prices:
Hamburg Airport to Hamburg city centre is about £20
Hamburg Airport to Lubeck is about £80

Three bus stops, A, B and C, are located outside the terminals, offering regular, cheap routes to Hamburg city centre and other cities and towns in the region. The Jasper Airport Bus runs from stop B to the Central Railway Station every 10 to 15 minutes, costing around £4 and running between 05:45 and 24:00. The HVV Bus Company offers an express service, number 39, from stops A and C, and two regular services, 274 and 292, from the same stops to Hamburg city destinations, with tickets costing around £2.50. Long distance buses run to Kiel and Frankfurt at a cost of around £20 and £40, respectively.


On the complex are two terminals, connected by the Airport Plaza shopping, security, S-Bahn station and Baggage Claim extension. Terminal 2 serves Star Alliance and Lufthansa flights, and Terminal 1 deals with all other flights. All public facilities are modern and comfortable, with extensive services for up to 14 million passengers who use the facility annually.

Parking at the airport can be booked in advance, as can valet parking. Automated signs on the complex’s approach road guide drivers to available parking spaces in car parks P2 to P5, adjacent to the terminals, or in the off-complex, long-stay car parks P8 and P9. Over 10,000 parking bays are provided, and a free shuttle bus takes passengers from P8 and P9 lots to the terminals. Payment is by credit card. Drop offs cost from £1.25 for 15 minutes, while short-term parking is charged at £0.80 per 15 minutes up to £18 per day, dependent on which car park is used and the length of stay.

Wi-Fi internet is available in most areas of the terminals.

Service points, special seating areas, adapted toilets and washrooms, fast-lane check-in and security procedures, and total attendance from deplaning or boarding can be arranged through your airline.

Restaurants and Bars
A good choice of bars, cafés and restaurants is offered landside and airside in the terminals and in the Airport Plaza area. Bistro Modellschau offers German foods and beers, and for a taste of Japan, the Sashimi Sushi Bar is popular. Wine-lovers will enjoy the Vino Bar, and there are five restaurants, each with varied menus. After security, eight bars and cafés including Movenpick and the St Paul Bar await, and five eateries including Cindy’s Diner, San Pino and another branch of Sashimi Sushi are offered.

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).
