KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Coventry

  • When booking your cheap car hire in Coventry, you may be interested in enjoying a few short road trips around the city. There are some fantastic towns and neighbouring cities within easy reach, as the UK is relatively small and easy to travel by car. Consider a trip up to Rugby, a market town that’s the birthplace of the famous sport of the same name. It has many historical sites to enjoy such as parks, manicured gardens, a nature reserve and a rich heritage that dates back to medieval days.
  • Being a visitor to the UK provides great opportunities to see art, culture and history in one fell swoop – and doing it in a group is all the more fun. If choosing a Coventry car hire for a family, why not consider a larger vehicle, such as a passenger van, to keep the family together? Passenger vans are comfortable with slick interiors, multimedia entertainment centres, air-conditioning and ample luggage space for camping trips, road trips and more. Look for 7, 9 or 9-seater options.
  • If you are driving in the UK, you will find the majority of car hires will have manual transmission. This way of shifting gears allows for great control when climbing steep inclines, but many tourists are not taught to drive with manual transmission. If you prefer an automatic shift, ensure your car hire company can provide one and always check the details of the vehicle before finishing your online transaction.
  • Do you want to visit the Coventry Transport Museum and the famous Coventry Cathedral, but also the many golf courses and nature parks dotted around the city? With a hire car, there are no limits to your travel itinerary, allowing you the freedom to explore everything this beautiful city has in store.
  • The closest international airport to Coventry is Birmingham International Airport, which is 11 miles from the city and only a 20-minute drive away. Travelers can get a car directly from a range of agencies offering hire cars on site and continue their way to Coventry hassle-free and in comfort. Head to the arrivals hall, where internationally renowned agencies like Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz are situated.
  • Consider renting a GPS system with your hire car for your time in Coventry if you are not used to driving on the left side of the road. In the beginning it can be confusing, but with extra attention to the road and a GPS system, drivers should face no problems. The biggest challenges are with roundabouts and intersections – remember to enter the former clockwise and to venture into the latter extra attentively.
  • Rush hour usually hits Coventry on weekdays around 7-9 am and in the evenings from 5 to 7 pm. A4053 is the ring around the city and is most affected during these peak times, so try to avoid it if possible. Even though England does not get too much snow in the winter, due to freezing rain and sleet, the roads can become slippery during the cold months and extra attention and caution are required.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Coventry for £21 or less
  • Book your car hire in Coventry at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hire in Coventry are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about car hire in Coventry

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

    Coventry has a very old center with narrow streets and with a smaller car it becomes easier to navigate through them. As drivers drive on the left side, stick shifts can be confusing as they would be handled with the left hand. An automatic car can therefore make matters less puzzling, allowing you to simply focus on the road.

  • What’s the speed limit in Coventry?

    30 mph is the maximum speed limit in the city, although it is only 20 mph in specific places, such as close to schools or highly pedestrianized areas.

When you arrive to collect the vehicle, ensure you have your credit card, driver’s licence and passport with you. Certain cities in the UK have a maximum age limit of 75 for car hire, but Coventry is exempt from this law.

I have serious reservations and can't pay for it even with a car. solve it I booked a vehicle through Kayak and used Enterprise's vehicle. Used from 7/1 to 7/29. Once again booked through kayak again. The newly connected company is “QEEQ “ I booked a car through Qeeq once again with an enterprise provider. Arrived more than an hour earlier than the pick-up time. And, I returned the car keys and wanted a new reserved car. I explained that I have a new reservation. However, he extended the existing car without asking for a proper opinion. I recognized it as a new car and paid for it. However, it was actually an expensive car and the existing car was an expensive car. Previously, the car was not even ready. After waiting for a few hours, I had no choice but to get the existing car. The newly booked car requested to be canceled. They said it was canceled. We talked about it several times and it was confirmed, but It remains on the reservation record. cost was paid. Qeeq said that there was no reservation record because it was a computer error. actually. everything went wrong I said it was canceled several times, but it was not canceled. Also, although there was no record, the cost was paid. Also, the car was previously driven by two people. * (1/july ~ 29/july, 2 drivers) When I extended it, I said several times that I was driving alone. got a confirmation they said It says "Just only driver", but it was actually supposed to be driven by two people. cost was charged. They said it was corrected and they asked for a new receipt, but they did not provide it. I heard from Enterprise employees and Qeeq that it will be returned when the car is returned, but I can't believe it. It's all lies and nothing is kept. I want to receive a new receipt again. I also want the money paid back. And if necessary, I will return the car. He also wants the $165 paid on 7/31 from Enterprise back. I was working all day on 7/31. never visited the road It is not explained why it was canceled. If you don't get a refund right away, I'm thinking of filing a complaint with the police with the help of the consulate. And I plan to reveal the facts so that many people know. I want the truth to be handled well. And I don't understand QEEQ's behavior. QEEQs new contract was handled at will by enterprise, but why did it work properly? Are you not doing what is right? Why do you always say that it is a computational error? If it doesn't go well, I'm thinking of sharing the mail I received from QEEQ as well. I intend to speak directly to KAYAK, QEEQ, and Enterprise Headquarters about all of this. Once again, I want to be treated well with sincerity. If all goes well, I'll be using KAYAK, QEEQ and Enterprise for 5 months while in the UK. Every business trip continues...

Car hire insurance in Coventry

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Coventry car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Coventry.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Coventry car hire.
