KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Leipzig

  • Leipzig is a famous city in Germany known for its rich history and cultural attractions. Car rentals in Leipzig offer unparalleled convenience and flexibility as you explore this vibrant city. With car rentals in Leipzig, you can navigate the city easily as you visit places of interest and attractions such as the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and the famous Leipzig Opera House. Additionally, Leipzig car rentals are cost-effective for longer and extended stays as they eliminate the need to accumulate taxi fares and guarantee comfort in your travel.
  • Passengers visiting Leipzig will most likely arrive at Leipzig/Halle Airport (LEJ), the city's primary gateway. LEJ offers convenient car rental options from local and reputable international brands like Avis, Europcar, Budget, and Hertz. All car rental companies have dedicated counters within the arrivals area of the airport. You will provide the necessary documentation from your chosen provider before collecting your rental car. The availability of on-site car rentals in LEJ makes traveling to your preferred destination convenient and flexible.
  • Leipzig offers a pleasant experience for rental car driving. However, like any other city, there are concerns one should consider when driving car rentals in Leipzig. Drivers in Leipzig generally abide by the traffic rules like obeying traffic lights. While it's common for drivers to hoot immediately after the signals change, it's not excessive. When driving in Leipzig, you should be cautious of the sudden stops taxi drivers make as they look for customers. Drunk driving is discouraged in Leipzig with a strict blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit of 0.5 grams per liter of blood.
  • Like many cities, Leipzig also experiences traffic congestion during peak commuting hours. The morning rush in Leipzig mainly occurs between 7.30 am and 9 am when commuters head to work and school. Major roads affected during these times include Jahnallee and Augustusplatz. In the evening the rush hour starts from 4.30 pm until 6 pm. Roads such as Innenstadtring and Karl-Liebknecht-Straße often experience increased traffic congestion during this period. You should familiarize yourself with the roads affected and traffic patterns to avoid potential delays.

The person on the counter was not nice. When J approached him he said he won’t have cars for another 1 or 2 hours. It is not clear why it said they had cars in that location when they actually did not

I have a big problem with the car rental Euro car

Jun. 2023

The manager gave us no choice but to rent a van a day earlier than I had reserved it for. She maintained that I had ordered an 8-seat vehicle when I had clearly reserved a nine-seat van. The "explanation" was that here was high demand-- but the company had a full week to make available the Mercedes Vito I had reserved. The "similar" vehicle given to us (read: forced upon us) was a Volkswagen Caravelle, a far inferior van with mini-USB ports, one coffee cup holder (in the front), a standard radio with no capability for pairing the handy (i,.e., no navigation system), and uncomfortable seats. A rear seatbelt was difficult to find and attach. Nonetheless, I ended up paying the same amount of money for the vehicle as I would have with the Mercedes. It was a really unfortunate situation since I was showing my nine-member family parts of Germany and Switzerland for the first time, no thanks to Enterprise, City "Center" (Prager Strasse). I believe I should receive half of the money back for the inconveniences, but it is highly doubtful that will happen or that this review will even be made available.
