Stuttgart’s roads are well-maintained, especially the autobahn highways. Driving in the city centre can be confusing due to the layout of the downtown streets and use of tunnels. However, motorists should be aware of the inner-city ring road, which makes driving much easier. Parking can be difficult to find, but parking blocks are available in downtown Stuttgart, with parking generally charged at £1 per hour.

However, they travel from the airport to several surrounding towns and cities, including Tubingen and Esslingen.

The train network, operated as S-Bahn Stuttgart, is a convenient public transport method. Trains run from Stuttgart Airport to Stuttgart Central Railway Station every 10 to 20 minutes. Journeys are operated along Line 2 and Line 3, and generally take less than 30 minutes. Prices vary, but single day tickets are around £5, with single-journey tickets costing around £2.

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).
