    The major of car hire suppliers can be found at Terminal 1, 2 and 5. It is therefore important to make sure you head to the correct terminal to pick-up your car. When opting for a car rental at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, Terminal 1, you’ll find the rental desks conveniently located on the E0 level. If hiring from Terminal 5, desks are located in the L zone, with collection of vehicles in the multi-storey car park P54. Please make sure you have all your documents ready before arriving at the service desk. These include, the Auto Europe voucher, a valid ID, driving licence (with an International Driving Permit, if required) and a valid credit card under the main driver’s name.

    This credit card will be used to secure a deposit upon pick-up. The deposit will be released back onto your credit card once the car is returned in the same condition as when it left. Make sure you check the vehicle thoroughly inside and out, noting any issues on the pick-up slip. Likewise, make sure a member of the car hire team check and sign off the vehicle upon your return.

    Terminals

    The airport is formed of three terminals. Terminal 1 is the main terminal and consists of six levels. Terminal 2 will host low-cost carriers and is located adjacent to the main Terminal 1. Terminal 5 is located 6km from Terminal 1 and 2 – and is the original Schönefeld Airport, which has now been adapted and incorporated into the new airport. During the construction of the new airport, it was deemed that the two new terminals would not be sufficient for the increased passenger traffic. Therefore, Schönefeld Airport was converted into Terminal 5 to handle the extra estimated passenger volume.

    Moving between Terminal 1 & 2 and Terminal 5 is relatively easy. The terminals are connected by public transport. From taxis to the S-Bahn S9 and S45, together with shuttle buses, hoping between the terminals shouldn’t be an issue. We do however recommend you ensure you have plenty of time should you require to hop between terminals.

    Airport Facilities

    All terminals contain the necessary standard infrastructure for air travel. From check-in desks to departure lounges and baggage reclaim – you’ll find everything needed for a safe and secure journey. Within Terminal 1, after going through check-in you’ll be presented with the Marktplatz – a large shopping zone. Here you’ll find everything you need including a food court. Terminal 2 and 5 also provide ample shopping and eating zones – coffee houses, bars and restaurants. All terminals have ATM’s, information desks, restrooms and comfortable lounges. Car rental desks in Terminal 1 & 2 are located on level E0, whilst in Terminal 5, they are located in the L zone. Wi-Fi is available throughout the terminals, and if you have a keen interested in viewing the airplanes, head to the panoramic viewing terrace at Terminal 1.

Taxis are cream in colour with a taxi sign upon their roof. Taxis are metered, but we advise asking the driver estimated cost before commencing your journey.
