“Efficient and excellent service. Haven't had any problems renting cars via Easyterra so far and have used them for quite a few years.”

“I use the service of Easyterra for few years and actually, I like how it works. The prices for car rental are reasonable and generally all conditions are implemented. But once I was worried when I had not received a final confirmation. I called to the agency and then everything had been settled. Often, at places, I have offered a better model of car then has been booked. I recommend my friends Easyterra as it is reliable resource.”

Location information for Düsseldorf

Car hire Düsseldorf


Düsseldorf is the capital of Rhineland-Westphalia. Although the city was bombed heavily during the Second World War, it has managed to maintain an elegant atmosphere with a mixture of old and new buildings. The old 'Altstadt' with its 13th century Saint Lambertus church and the old Jägerhof castle are well worth a visit. Furthermore, there are exclusive shops and galleries on the Königsallee, which the locals often simply refer to as 'Kö'.


Düsseldorf has nearly 600,000 inhabitants. It is sometimes called 'Nippon on the Rhine', due to the large number of Japanese inhabitants (8,000). Never write 'Dusseldorf' instead of 'Düsseldorf'. The meaning of 'Dussel' is klutz, and the people of Düsseldorf will not be amused.


The city is located primarily on the east bank of the Rhine, where the river Düssel flows into the Rhine. Some parts of the city (Overkassel, Niederkassel, Heerdt and Lörick) are situated on the west bank. Düsseldorf is located to the south-west of the Ruhr area, but it is still a part of this large urban agglomeration with over 11 million inhabitants. Duisburg is located a little to the north-west of Düsseldorf, Cologne is located to the south-east of the city.


While the Ruhr area leans on heavy industry, Düsseldorf is above all an administrative centre. It is sometimes called the 'writing desk' of the Ruhr area. The main offices of heavy industries are located here, like Thyssen-Krupp, Rheinmetall and Henkel. In addition, the European Patent Office is located in the city, as well as many advertising agencies, telecommunication companies and banks. Few people know that the city plays an important role in the German fashion industry. The 'Collections Premieren Düsseldorf' is one of the world's largest fashion shows.
The media are also represented, with the studio networks of Westdeutschen Rundfunks (WDR) and Zweiten Deutschen Fernsehens (ZDF).


Düsseldorf Airport is located to the north of the city. It is the third largest airport of Germany. From the city centre the airport can be reached with the so-called Stadtbahn (line 7). There is also a rail connection with the Hochbahn.
Twenty kilometres to the west of the city lies a smaller airport, Düsseldorf-Mönchengladbach.
Budget airlines use Weeze airport, which is located at 100 kilometres to the north-west of the city, although it is often referred to simply as 'Düsseldorf' by the airlines.

Public transport

The city has an extensive public transport network with Stadtbahnen (city trains, metro), Strassenbahnen (trams) and buses, all of which are operated by Rheinbahn. At the centre of the city's public transport system is the Haubtbahnhof Düsseldorf, from which high-speed (ICE) trains leave for, among other places, Berlin, Munich and Amsterdam. The ICE trains also make a stop at Düsseldorf Flughafen. There are also regional trains to Duisburg, Essen, Wuppertal, Mönchengladbach, Krefeld and Cologne.
A single ticket is valid for all forms of public transport in the city.

Traffic and parking

The city is surrounded by motorways. In the north the A44 Mönchengladbach-Bochum and the A52 to Essen, in the south the A46 Heinsberg- Hagen and the A59 to Leverkusen, in the west the A57 Cologne-Krefeld, and finally in the east the A3 from Cologne to Oberhausen.
It is a modern city with clear traffic signs, which means you will have no trouble finding your way around.
Along the Königsallee there is a so-called 'Blue Zone', where you are only allowed to park in the blue spaces, and anywhere else it is not allowed. In the Blue Zone, parking is paid from Monday to Friday between 9 am and 6 pm, and on Saturday between 9 am and 4 pm. NB: at other times parking is free, but it is still only allowed in the blue spaces.


Düsseldorf is a business centre where there are conferences and exhibitions all year round, so there is no lack of hotels in the mid-price and higher regions. If you are looking for a hotel in this category, we strongly recommend booking in advance. Cheaper accommodations are found around the train station, especially in the Graf-Adolf-Strasse, and in the south of the city around the Jahnstrasse.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire 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). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Hire? at this location
