Mainz is a city near to Frankfurt in the Rhineland-Palatinate region of western Germany. The broad expanse of the Rhine River runs through the centre of the city giving Mainz a sense of space and serenity. Mainz seems to have had a startling effect on history for the last thousand years; the city is home to a series of famous churches and was the birthplace of Guttenberg, founder of the modern printing press. Car hire in Mainz is popular due to nearby Frankfurt's enduring popularity and the fact that it stands at very crossroads of Western Europe. Hiring a car in Mainz is available from Rhein-Main Airport and Mainz itself.
It's hard to talk about Mainz without mentioning Johannes Guttenberg, and the Guttenberg Museum is a must-see. The 'Guttenberg Bibles' are on display and it's hard to name a more important figure from the Age of Enlightenment. Additionally, Mainz Cathedral, St Stephen's Church and Christ Church - just off the spectacular Emperor Street - are all worth a look. If you're hiring a car in Mainz you might well be using the iconic Theodor Heuss Rhine Bridge which will take you in the direction of Frankfurt. Rent a car in Mainz and explore the rich history the Rhineland region has to offer.
Many visitors to Mainz will be arriving at Frankfurt Airport and traffic between the two cities is free-flowing. The A66 takes you from Mainz to Frankfurt in just under 45minutes and most visitors will recognise that the two cities tend to trade off one another's popularity. The Rhineland-Palatinate is Germany's biggest wine region, and the rolling countryside surrounding the area are not to be missed. Sports fans may be visiting the Coface Arena - home of FSV Mainz 05 - which sits just on the wider edge of the inner-city bounds.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
