Top tips for hiring a car in Buckinghamshire

  • There are a number of excellent day trips you can take within or just outside Buckinghamshire that are more easily accessible by car, especially if you aren't staying in a larger city. For example, Oxford is around 50 minutes away by car and roughly 1h 30 by bus. London is around 1h 30 by car from the heart of Buckinghamshire. If you're staying in Milton Keynes, many of the most popular areas of the region, including the Chiltern Hills, Buckingham and Aylesbury are under an hour away.
  • Make sure you're aware of the speed limit and upcoming speed limits while driving in Buckinghamshire, as they can drop significantly. Most country roads will have a speed limit of 60 mph, and if you're exploring the region you'll likely find yourself on plenty of these. In most towns, you can expect 30 mph limits in residential areas and keep an eye out for school zones where the limit may drop to 20 mph. In Milton Keynes, the grid roads are generally subject to the national speed limit of 70 mph; however, some stretches drop to 60 mph or 40 mph.
  • If you're flying to the region, the closest airport is usually London Luton Airport (LTN). If you'd like to pick up your car at the airport, you'll first need to take the free shuttle bus to the Car Hire Centre. You can find it at the bus station area in Arrivals. It usually arrives at Bay C. Here, you'll find a number of different companies available including Hertz, Enterprise and Avis. From Luton Airport it takes around 35 minutes to drive to Milton Keynes and roughly 50 minutes to get to Buckingham.
  • You'll likely find yourself on country roads while you're exploring Milton Keynes. It's worth noting that these roads can be more challenging, especially in rainy weather, if the roads are unsealed. Sharp turns are common, and you may not be able to see clearly around the bend, so be prepared to slow to a more comfortable speed if you feel safer. While the roads are often much quieter than in cities, you may also be more likely to encounter pedestrians, cyclists and even farm tractors who use the road to get around due to a lack of walking tracks or cycling lanes.

The region has some beautiful manor houses that aren't often accessible via public transport, as they're some distance from bus stops and train stations. With your own car, you can easily explore the winding country roads of Buckinghamshire. Plus, you'll be able to explore Buckinghamshire's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Chiltern Hills, at your own pace. Much of the region is rural, so train and bus connections are often infrequent or unavailable.

  • What is driving like in Buckinghamshire?

    Buckinghamshire's largest city, Milton Keynes, has a series of grid roads connecting major areas of the town that helps traffic move smoothly through the city. On these roads, you won't need to worry about encountering pedestrians or cyclists too often. Additionally, with no traffic lights and roundabouts controlling traffic, you'll get to your destination faster. If you head out onto rural roads, be prepared for potentially damaged surfaces and keep an eye out for farm animals and wildlife. Generally, driving in Buckinghamshire is very relaxed and easy.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Buckinghamshire?

    Most Buckinghamshire car hire companies will provide cars to drivers who are at least 21 years old. Drivers between the age of 21 and 24 can expect to pay a young driver's surcharge. Additionally, you may be restricted in terms of the types of vehicles you can hire, depending on your age. Luxury models or large vehicles may only be available to those aged 25 or older. Some models may also be restricted to drivers who are at least 30 years old.
