KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Paderborn

  • Cheap car hire in Paderborn is a great way to see one of Germany’s oldest cities at your leisure. Despite being an original Medieval town, Paderborn is now one of the most tech-forward cities in the world, with a multitude of IT and tech companies making it their headquarters. You will enjoy driving around visiting great historic attractions, such as the Romanesque Paderborn Cathedral with its large crypt, the ancient Schloss Neuhaus Castle housing an art and natural history museum, the remaining foundations of Kaiserpfalz Palace and the Ottonian Palace. The city also has the high-tech Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum, which is a major attraction for tourists. While public transport does exist in Paderborn, the freedom of your own vehicle will allow you to explore and enjoy road trips to other German cities, such as Dusseldorf, just over an hour away.
  • When landing for your trip, you may collect your Paderborn car hire at the local Paderborn Airport (PAD). The car hire area is based across the road from the main terminal in a multi-storey car park. Here you will find companies such as SIXT, Europcar and Avis. Collect your vehicle and accessories and head out on the L776 to reach the city in under 30min.
  • With your cheap car hire in Paderborn, you will need to get used to driving on the right of the road. You will notice that all road signs are in German, so brush up on the language or turn your GPS to English mode to help you navigate easier. Stay under the alcohol limit of 0.05% when driving, and make sure everyone in the vehicle is buckled up at all times. Roads are well-surfaced and easy enough to drive, but be careful around the university, as there are many students on bikes and on foot. The main city centre is quite free from traffic. You should research which roads you will be restricted from driving on, if you are planning on seeing attractions in the city centre.
  • With your cheap car hire in Paderborn, there should be very few challenges to prevent your driving experience from being pleasant and fun. Western Germany has tough winters, and snow and rain will be part of your daily commute. Ensure your car is parked underground to stop it freezing, and keep a scraper in your car. Snow chains may be advised by your car hire company depending on the time of year. Traffic can get quite congested around the university area, but a GPS can help you navigate around it. Your car will be manual transmission, as that is standard in Germany. Automatic cars need to be requested and are sometimes pricier.
  • Book your rental car in Paderborn at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Paderborn are around 65% cheaper than other car types, on average
