    Where to pick up my car hire at Düsseldorf Airport

Car hire desks can be found primarily in the arrivals hall, with all the regularly known car hire brands being present. These include; Global, Keddy, Avis, Budget, National, Buchbinder and more. Returning your car hire at Düsseldorf Airport is straight forward. Drive towards departures and then follow the street signs towards ‘Mietwagen’. If you need to fill up on petrol beforehand, there is a conveniently located petrol station between the P5 car park and the rental car park.

    Before arriving at the rental desk make sure that you have with you all the required documentation. These include a full valid driving licence, an International Driving Permit (if required), your rental voucher, and identification in the form of an ID card or passport, and lastly, a credit card. The credit card must be in the name of the main driver and have enough funds so that a security deposit can be placed on it by the car hire supplier. This security deposit will be released back onto your credit card once the vehicle is returned to the supplier in the same condition as when it left. We highly recommend inspecting the vehicle before and after your rental, noting anything of concern on the rental slip.
