KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Nottingham

  • Car hire in Nottingham offers you a flexible and enjoyable means of transport for exploring many of the city’s key attractions, such as the famous Sherwood Forest and historic Nottingham Castle. The castle can be found in the city centre, whereas visiting Sherwood Forest will require a short drive north. If you’re ready for a scenic drive beyond the city, take a spin out to the county of Lincolnshire to the east. It’s a 50-mile drive that rewards you with a magnificent stretch of coastline along the North Sea.
  • If you’re flying into East Midlands Airport (EMA), there are various car hire agencies like SIXT, Avis and Alamo from which to choose a vehicle that best serves your needs. Compacts, convertibles and saloons can be reserved in advance, and most car hire companies offer convenient locations for pickup and drop off, often with 24-hr service. Collect your luggage from baggage reclaim and make your way to the car hire area located on the ground floor of the terminal, near the International Arrivals hall.
  • Pay particular attention to bus and bike lanes, as well as pedestrians and students dashing across busy streets. Many hire cars in Nottingham can be equipped with a sat nav to avoid getting lost, and these can also provide alternative routes to best manoeuvre through traffic jams and congested parts of the city.
  • Nottingham is a university city boasting a dynamic culture and a booming economy dominated by science and business, so encounters with morning/evening rush hour traffic should be expected. If you’re keen to get an early start on the road, keep away from the bustling Broadmarsh district during the morning (7:00-9:00) and evening rush hours (16:00-19:00) whenever possible. Collin Street and Canal Street offer easy connections to the A60 and the A6008, but you might find yourself stuck on these main arteries that provide access into, around and out of the city. The A52, which dissects the business/industrial development area of Wollaton Park and the University of Nottingham, is another motorway susceptible to heavy rush hour traffic.
  • Book your rental car in Nottingham at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Nottingham are around 54% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Nottingham

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Nottingham?

    Economy compacts and 4x4s are ideal for navigating the small city streets with their tight corners, and it’s much easier to find street parking than with larger hire cars. If you intend to spend much time on the road, the size of your party may play a key role, so choose the option that offers maximum comfort and value for money.

  • What’s the speed limit in Nottingham?

    Within the confines of the city with its significant pedestrian and vehicular traffic, the speed limit is 30mph for all vehicles. Cars and vans are allowed a maximum speed of 60mph on single carriageways such as the A610, but you can go as fast as 70mph on dual carriageways like the A52 and motorways like the M1. Be advised that there is a plethora of static and red light speed cameras all around Nottingham, especially along the A60 and the A610 where there are major junctions.

    Generally speaking, you can park your Nottingham hire car on the street for free between 20:00-8:00.
