Where to drop off rental outside of Frankfurt?

Hello,

When we were in France and heading for Paris, we dropped our rental at Chartres and caught the train into Paris..... so much easier than facing a big city!

So ......

I would appreciate if TA's could advise suitable place to drop off vehicle. Our last area visiting Germany will be in the Mosel area, around Bernkastel (or those are the plans at present!)

We would want to go straight to Frankfurt airport (be at airport by 7 p.m.) by train.

Thanking you, Chris

Why don't you drop the car at the airport? Or otherwise the main station. Frankfurt is nothing like the size of Paris and quite easy to drive in

If you travel from Bernkastel to Frankfurt (no matter if by train or car) you will travel through Frankfurt Airport anyway first before reaching Frankfurt. Thus just drop off your car at the airport.

Another option would be to drop it off in Mainz, explore the city and than by S-Bahn or regional train to Frankfurt Airport.

Frankfurt Airport is between Mainz and Frankfurt with Mainz being closer to Bernkastel. While Frankfurt is behind the airport if coming from this direction.

Thank you both ... this is exactly the response I loved! You seemed to both agree with the airport drop off.

I really appreciate your advice.

Thank you again.
