Top tips for hiring a car in Cambridge

  • Cambridge is one of the most venerable cities in the UK, and with its rich academic heritage it is brimming with historical attractions. A convenient way to create your own travel itinerary so that you can visit all the sights you’re interested in is to book car hire in Cambridge. You’ll have the independence to visit the famous King’s College and its chapel, on the King’s Parade. While you’re at Cambridge University, the Botanic Garden and Trinity College should also be on your list. You can also drive out to another renowned landmark, the National Horse Racing Museum, which is located 13 miles away in Newmarket.
  • Your nearest airports to fly into are London Stansted or London Luton, which are 23 and 31 miles away respectively. Stansted has a wide choice of major brands that you can use for Cambridge car hire: Hertz, Avis, Budget and Sixt are just a few. A free bus will take you from the airport’s terminal forecourt to the Car Rental Village, departing every 10min. Similarly, at London Luton Airport you’ll find a wide choice of options, and the airport also offers a free shuttle bus service to its Car Hire Centre, where you can pick up your vehicle.
  • Once you’ve arrived and are enjoying the flexibility that car hire in Cambridge offers, the first thing to be aware of is that the city is something of a cyclist’s mecca, so keep your eyes wide open for anything from single cyclists to quite large groups. Be alert on major roads, particularly the M11, which is a hotspot for vehicle accidents. If you’re staying outside the city, be aware that the country roads in the unspoilt surrounding rural areas can be poorly lit, as you would expect. Also pay particular attention when negotiating the traffic flow at the Girton Cloverleaf interchange.
  • While we might think of Cambridge as a quiet, historic university town, it also has a bustling city centre, which hasn’t escaped modern features like traffic jams and rush hours. Firstly, it’s advisable to avoid the main commercial road serving the city, the A14, which is often subject to general delays. Some of the city roads are also on the narrow side, so you may want to check local traffic conditions daily for the A428 and Mill Road as well. The rush hours themselves are at the predictable hours, so avoid these roads especially from around 08:00 to 09:00 and 17:00 to 18:00.
  • Book your rental car in Cambridge at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Cambridge are around -13% cheaper than other car types, on average
