KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Munich

  • When driving your cheap car hire in Munich, you will come across various vehicle restrictions in the city centre, so be aware of pedestrian only zones, as well as the Low Emission Zone, which only allows vehicles that meet certain emissions levels. Check with your car hire agency if your car has the green environmental badge that permits entry to this zone. Furthermore, Munich is a very cyclist-friendly city, so there are dedicated cycle lanes where cars must give way to cyclists where necessary. There are also bus lanes reserved only for buses and emergency service vehicles, while some areas are Car-Free zones, such as Englischer Garten park.
  • A great way to reduce the price of your Munich car hire is to go for an electric vehicle. This is because powering a car with electricity is much more cost effective than it is to refuel a car with petrol. Charging the car will be simple, as Munich is home to one of the most extensive electric car charging station networks in the country, with over 700 located around the city. Car hire agencies such as SIXT, Hertz and Europcar all have an extensive range of electric vehicles in an array of different models.
  • Once you’ve sorted out your cheap car hire in Munich, you can also ensure your deal gets better by including various add-ons, enhancing your journey and overall car hire experience. When booking it’s worth adding a sat-nav especially if you’re not familiar with Munich’s roads. It’s also possible to include an additional driver, so you can share driving responsibilities and not have to spend your whole trip behind the wheel. Should you be travelling with children, you could also add a booster seat, which in Germany must be provided for children under 12 years of age.
  • There are many benefits of renting a car in Munich, namely ease of access around the city. Driving is the best way to soak up the wonderful architecture of the city or drive to the surrounding Bavarian countryside. Full of old fortifications, if you take the Altstadtring traffic loop, you will find many parts of the historical walls still intact. Although many of the main tourist attractions are very central, there are plenty of sites outside of Munich to discover by car. Garmisch is about an hour away, as is the neighboring Austrian city of Salzburg.
  • Franz Josef Strauss International Airport is a great place to pick up your hire car. Once you touch down, you will be able to take your pick from eight car hire companies, with desks located within the airport. You will find the car hire area in Terminal 1, outside of Hall C. The airport is only a 35-minute drive from Munich’s city center, via the A92 and A99 routes. Plus, it’s very easy to access the E53 motorway from the airport, which runs between Munich and the Czech Republic.
  • Germans drive on the right-hand side of the road and it’s important to stay in the right lane unless you are passing other cars. If you plan on driving your hire car on to the Autobahn, it’s wise to stay on the right as many of these routes don’t have speed limits. The center of Munich is car-friendly and features mainly wide, modern streets, with a few one-way streets to be aware of. Most public transport has priority on the roads in the city center, so do yield to trams and buses whenever you can.
  • The best time to drive around Munich is in the afternoon, particularly on the Mittlerer Ring, which encircles the city center. Traffic gets heavy during the morning rush hour, between 7:00 am and 9:00 am, and again in the early evening from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. In the colder winter months, driving conditions can vary due to sleet and snow, but you can expect autobahns to be cleared of snow quickly and efficiently. You should avoid any high mountain routes and minor roads in remote regions in snowy weather, however.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Munich for £29 or less
  • Book your car hire in Munich at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Munich are around 20% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Standard hire cars in Munich are around 30% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Munich 
Jean ClaudeJan 2024
Very careful with parking. Street parking (in Germany and Austria) is not free during weekdays even if there may not be any signs. Every city is different. Look for the information online
Verified travelerDec 2023
No I have not any tips. I always try to parking places. The best is to avoid go down town thee festive days. Metro is the right choice.
Verified travelerDec 2023
Be ready to drive a manual transmission!! And avoid the left lane on the autobahn unless you’re capable of driving at race track speeds!!
Verified travelerSept 2023
If you're driving long distances, try to get gas from inside the city rather than near the highways since the highway stops charge a lot more money. Gas in Europe in general is expensive.
Verified travelerSept 2023
We had no troubles driving in Munich. Had we have known, we would have had Sixt change the language on the GPS to English.

FAQs about car hire in Munich

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Munich?

    When it comes to renting a car in Munich, you need to take advantage of the quality German vehicles on offer – try out a reliable BMW or Mercedes. Whether you want to venture onto Bavaria's open roads in a convertible or cruise around the city in a luxury SUV, a mid to full-size car is perfect for Munich’s well-managed roads.

  • What’s the speed limit in Munich?

    Navigating Munich means abiding by the federally mandated speed limit of 31 mph. When you drive within the city’s limits, you must be careful to stick to the speed limit, as going over by 3 mph can already result in a speeding ticket. It’s best to slow down and obey the traffic laws, in the city center. If you want to go at a faster pace, then get on the surrounding autobahns, where the suggested speed limits are around 80 mph but drivers legally have the option of going as fast as 200 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Munich?

    Munich offers visitors various types of parking. Depending on the areas you want to visit, there are parking zones with differing tariffs.

On average, garages in the city center will cost from €3.00 – €4.00 ($3.40 - $4.54) per hour or €20.00 ($22.70) for the day.

Very poor. The vehicle we had booked (along with ski racks) wasn’t able to be fitted with the racks. Had to wait for an hour for issue to be resolved and this was only due to another customer not being able to complete their rental. I was charged additional charges of 250 euros when I returned the vehicle a day early with a reference to this but additional charges for the ski rack and other charges (which had already been paid for on collection of the car)

The staff member at Munich was very polite and very helpful. Didn't have the type of car we hired but happy with what we got although it did cost quite a bit more than what we booked. The car GPS was all in German and we only speak English and couldn't get it into English mode. The drop off point in Verona was extremely hard to find especially after the one we found was closed. But the staff member at Verona was also very polite and very easy to deal with.

4.0 Mediocre

Sept 2022

The vehicle that I had reserved was advertised as large enough for 5 passengers and 5 large suitcases, but the agent insisted that I needed to upgrade to a vehical costing 40 euro more per day. Then, the process of leaving the garage took an inordinate amount of time because the same agent failed to provide me with a valid parking garge ticket to exit. We had to return several times by foot in order to correct the situation to leave. Therefore, we arrived at our destination over 75 minutes late. The vehical itself did not have heat for the rear passengers. That mechanism did not work for the entire journey. Very poor experience for the price paid!
