KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Castle Donington

  • Car hire in Castle Donington is beneficial for those that want to enjoy a flexible journey. Not only will you be able to travel when you please, but you’ll also be able to go direct, which isn’t always possible with public transport. For example, you can drive to East Leake in about 20min. This same journey takes close to 1h 30min by public transport and also requires multiple changes along the way.
  • Nottingham Airport (EMA) is one of the most convenient airports from Castle Donington. It has a large selection of car hire companies, which means it won’t take long to find your perfect vehicle. Once you have passed through immigration, you’ll be able to locate the branches quickly too. For example, Alamo, Enterprise and National are all located inside the Arrivals Hall. Your Castle Donington car hire provider will ask you to complete the registration documents, provide valid ID, and to pay, before taking you to your vehicle.
  • Using a car hire in Castle Donington, you’ll see it’s a busy town near to Nottingham. The driving style in this town is relatively calm, with drivers being respectful of each other. As jaywalking isn’t against the law in the UK, you must drive with care through the centre. This is because pedestrians frequently cross the road in precarious places. There are also lots of cyclists and motorbikes in this town, so remember to check your mirrors regularly and give them lots of space when overtaking.
  • When driving a Castle Donington hire car, you find that roads in general don’t get too congested. However, on weekdays they might get busier around rush hour, which is from around 8:00 to 9:00 and 17:00 to 18:00. This is when locals are travelling to and from Nottingham for work. If you prefer driving on quieter streets, it’s recommended that you avoid these times. One of the most congested streets in the area is High Street, which passes though the centre of the town. An alternative road you can travel on is Back Lane, which should be quieter.
