Top tips for renting a car in Luton

  • A hire car is the best way to explore not only the town of Luton, but also nearby London, the English countryside, and the east coast, as it gives you the freedom that public transport doesn’t provide. Head to the beautiful Wrest Park or embark on a road trip to London, which is only 33 miles south of Luton, or explore the Chilterns area to see the best of the UK countryside.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at London Luton (LTN), which is less than 4 miles away from the town center. The car hire desks can be found at the Car Hire Center, which is accessed via a free shuttle bus that you can catch at Bay C in the Arrivals terminal bus station. Tourists will only need their domestic driver's license to rent a vehicle in the UK.
  • When driving in the United Kingdom, remember that traffic runs on the left-hand side of the road, and the steering wheel is on the right-side of the vehicle. If you’re heading to London, know that there is a congestion charge of £11.50 a day for driving in the city center. Speed limits tend to drop by 20 mph on roads in and around Luton, especially in the vicinity of the airport, so look for posted signs.
  • Although traffic in Luton itself isn’t horrible, there are some traffic jams both on the M1 and the M25, which provide access to the airport. Morning rush hour usually lasts from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., while evening rush hour is between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. If you have to be at airport at a specific time, avoid driving during those hours as it can easily add up to an hour to your travel time.
  • Book your rental car in Luton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
