Luxembourg is small enough that you can do without a rental car, but it’s nice to have one if you plan to visit the outlying areas. If you do rent a car, consider leaving it parked while you explore the city on foot, and use the car only for long-distance trips into the surrounding areas. Driving in the city is not difficult, but street parking can be a problem. Fortunately there are many parking garages, which are clearly marked on the maps you can pick up for free at the tourist offices. The three most accessible garages are near the post office off boulevard Royal, at place de Theatre, and off rue Notre-Dame. If you are driving in from the west, you can use the free Parking Stade opposite the Stadium on Route d’Arlon and hop on the shuttle bus.
If you don’t rent a car, you can always grab a taxi. Hailing one on the street can be quite difficult, but there are plenty of cars to be had at the taxi stands near the Gare Centrale and the post office. During the day taxis start the meter at about $3.00 (USD) and charge another $1 per kilometer. There is a 10% surcharge from 10pm until 6am, and a 25% increase on Sundays and holidays.
It is important to check restrictions as to where the car can be driven. It appears that none of the agencies allow rental cars to go to Czech Republic, for example.
