Mainz to Eschborn daily commute

2 posts in this topic

I have been ofered a really good job in Eschborn with many perks which I would hate to give up. But after I checked prices of apartments in Frankfurt and area I just got very discouraged. I would in the end work just to pay the rent. 

 

I did a bit of research and find Mainz quite interesting and nice looking town. Would you recomend living in Mainz and traveling to work to Eschborn every day? 

 

Also is it possible to get a cheaper rent in Mainz than in Frankfurt area?

I get what you are exactly talking about. Rents in Frankfurt are skyhigh for sure. 

There are three parameters to look at here -  Time,Money and Convinience. You can accomplish only 2 of the 3 mostly. 

 

1.) Travel Options

           a. Travelling by S-Bahn : S3 and S4 both stop at Eschborn, so travelling from Mainz with these connecting trains would take upto 1 hour net time ( Mainz Hbf to Eschborn Bf) .My suggestion would be find a cheaper accommodation along S3 or S4 in Langen or Darmstadt and along the close to Bahnhofs making it easier to commute. Also do consider the travel costs from Mainz to Echborn can come upto 200€ per month. 

           b. Travelling by Car: You could find any living place in middle of nowhere and still commute by car which would certainly cost higher then public transport. 

 

2.) You could stay in Frankfurt/close to Eschborn and invest this time in something else productive than just travelling. Optimum option.

 

 

Since you said it is a really good job with many perks,You must live in Mainz only if have your Partner who works there or Kids who goto to school  or you own a house in Mainz.

 

 I hope this helps.
