If you select a 'full to full' car rental agreement you will need to hand your car back with a full tank.

There is a Shell petrol station just after you leave the motorway for the airport. Look for it on your right hand side.

Driving around Frankfurt Hahn Airport

The roads immediately surrounding the airport are small, two lane roads. The E42 motorway passes near the airport and if you're going to Frankfurt you will need to drive onto it. Although German motorways famously have no speed restrictions, there are suggested speeds. Few drivers actually surpass 120km/h. Don't feel under pressure to drive fast, and always stick to the inside lane unless overtaking. In Germany it is illegal to run out of fuel on the autobahn, so make sure you have a full tank before you set off. Remember that traffic in Germany drives on the right.

If you somehow manage to find on-street parking in the city centre you can expect to pay about €3 (about £2.20) an hour.

Some hotels in Frankfurt have car parks for their guests, although you may have to pay a supplement to use them.

Wiesbaden
An important spa town on the edge of the Rheingau wine region, Wiesbaden is an excellent destination for a chilled-out break.

Baroque architecture meets student buzz in one of Germany's most romantic cities.
