Top tips for renting a car in Ipswich

  • When visiting England’s rugged east coast, enjoy your stay to the fullest with car hire in Ipswich. See everything that this coastal town has to offer with your own vehicle that can take you from the famous café-lined waterfront to the picturesque greenery to be found around Suffolk. Having your own vehicle means you can even visit sites of interests nearby, such as Christchurch Mansion, or further afield, such as the Ipswich Transport Museum.
  • Ipswich is dominated by the majestic River Orwell, and you can find car hire locations on both sides of the water. For those coming by plane, the nearest airports are Southend SEN (39 miles away) and London Stansted STN (40 miles away), meaning you can get from Arrivals to Ipswich in just over an hour. Picking up and dropping off in the area is as easy as can be, and the handy location puts you close to the A14 road for journeys further afield around the UK.
  • In many ways, Ipswich is an ideal city for hire car drivers, as it is big enough to offer plenty of sites to see, while small and quiet enough to offer nice open roads for smooth and stress-free journeys. Driving alongside the marina is particularly enjoyable, but be aware that Ipswich’s city centre is implementing a number of one-way systems to help ease congestion, particularly during the week. Always remain alert to the growing community of avid cyclists that can be found around Ipswich as well.
  • The city centre suffers with congestion during commuting times, so be sure to only drive during rush hour (8:00–10:00 and 17:00–19:00) when it’s absolutely necessary. Also, as a coastal town, Ipswich suffers from extreme weather, including strong winds and heavy rain during the colder months. These should all be taken into account when planning your car hire in Ipswich.
