Top tips for renting a car in Hemel Hempstead

  • Hemel Hempstead is a large, modern town situated just north of London in the county of Hertfordshire. A good network of primary and secondary roads criss-cross this area and with a car hire in Hemel Hempstead, you have the advantage of freely roaming around town and the convenience of visiting areas outside the reach of train networks. The towns of Stevenage (22 miles via the A1/A44) and Milton Keynes (32 miles via the M1) are two such destinations you can discover.
  • If you select London Luton Airport (LTN) as the place to pick up a hire car in Hemel Hempstead, you will be just 12 miles from the town centre and perfectly positioned for an immediate start to your explorations. Just outside the airport’s terminal entrance is a collection point for the free shuttle that will transport you the short distance to the Car Hire Centre where you can pick up a vehicle.
  • Hemel Hempstead has become a telecommunications and IT hub and has a thriving engineering sector owing to its excellent road connections with London, so you should expect traffic to be busy during the morning and evening rush hours. The M1 and A41 sandwich the town east and west and are prone to slowdowns outbound and inbound while the A414 (St. Albans Road) and B487 are streets to watch as they pass through the town centre. Moderate pedestrian and cycle traffic should also be anticipated so use caution near residential zones and in the centre of town.
  • Avoid streets around the Hemel Hempstead Industrial Estate during the morning hours from 07:00-09:00 and again between 18:00 and 20:30 when traffic will be heaviest. The Bennetts End district contains several schools which will cause traffic delays due to reduced speed limits during the morning rush hours and again during the afternoon 14:30-16:00 when they recess. You should also anticipate active traffic during the 13:00-15:00 period along roads through central locations.
