Top tips for renting a car in Harlow

  • Although the bus network is extensive, it lacks the flexibility and convenience of a car hire in Harlow, which affords you the ability to be on the go at any time, day or night, near or far. Few driving experiences can match exploring coastal roads and the town/cities along the way. If you’re up for a challenge, start with a ride down to Chelmsford (20.5 miles via A414) then continue on through Colchester (24 miles) and Ipswich (a further 18.5 miles) along the A12 before the stretch of 44.5 miles along the A140 which leads to Norwich.
  • Along the M11 motorway that skirts the town, it’s only about 17 miles to London Stansted Airport (STN), and this is as good a place as any to pick up a hire car in Harlow. There is a good selection of providers including Europcar, National and Alamo represented at the Car Hire Village, so you’re likely to get a vehicle even without a reservation. To get to the car hire area, you should catch the free shuttle bus that stops at the terminal forecourt to pick up passengers every 10min.
  • The A414 borders the town along its northern and eastern flanks, funnelling traffic through secondary streets such as the A1019, A1025 and First Avenue, which all make their way to the town centre. You can expect congestion near all of these junction points inbound and outbound during morning and evening rush hours. The town centre is crowded with cultural landmarks and commercial interests, so there will be significant pedestrian and cycle traffic as well as vehicles on the roads.
  • One area to avoid during the morning (07:00-09:00) and evening (18:00-20:30) hours is the ring road (Haydens Road, Fourth Avenue, A1019 and A102) between Harlow College and Princess Alexandra Hospital, which contains four roundabouts and is an obvious magnet for delays during these periods. This area is also vulnerable to moderate traffic from 13:00 to 15:00 during the afternoon lunch peak.
