Better than the others!Pros: James was very professional, courteous and delivered excellent customer service. The way Enterprise deals with the damage policy and the fuel policy is both fair and boast common sense. As long as the costs remain good and competitive, I will continue to use Enterprise and recommend you to everyone. Thank you for an excellent car hire experience.

Top tips for renting a car in Norwich

  • Why bother with train timetables when you can set your own travel schedule with a car hire in Norwich? Plan your itinerary to include walking trips to Norwich Castle and Norwich Cathedral within the city centre before heading out for an extended drive around Norfolk and East Anglia. A great alternative involves taking the A47 East down to Lowestoft. It’s about 28 miles each way including a nice stretch of coastline from Great Yarmouth with a few towns you can explore at your leisure.
  • Reserving your hired car at Norwich Airport (NWI) allows you to hit the ground running because it’s less than 5 miles from the downtown area. The Norwich car hire centre is located on the Ground Level of the Arrivals Hall to your left just before the exit, or just behind the taxi rank when you enter the building. Avis, Budget and Hertz all have offices there for your convenience so picking up your vehicle should be a hassle-free experience.
  • Like most UK cities, Norwich has an intricate network of small streets and primary roads connecting to the city centre. The A147 is an inner ring road, which encircles the vibrant heart of the metropolis making it especially vulnerable to congestion from vehicular traffic. You should also expect heavy pedestrian and bike contact from tourists and college students when driving around the downtown area. Delays may also be experienced along the outer ring, which includes the main motorways A146 (south), A1042 (north), A47 (east) connecting Norwich to greater Norfolk and East Anglia.  
  • Aside from the normal 7:00-9:00 and 17:00-20:00 weekday rush hour traffic, you will also encounter heavy flow on Saturdays during the football season. For die-hard fans, all roads lead to the A147 and Carrow Road Stadium, where the Norwich Canaries play their home fixtures. If you’re in town during this time, it’s a good idea to be familiar with game times so you can adjust your travel schedule appropriately.

  • Norwich is another UK city that has a 20mph speed ordnance for all motor vehicles within city limits due to a high number of accidents, road fatalities, and ever-increasing pedestrian traffic. However, speeds of 30mph are allowed on the A147 to reduce congestion. As a rule of thumb, all UK single carriageway motorways like the A11 and the A1151 allow a maximum speed of 60mph, while dual carriageways like the A47 and the A146 increase to 70mph. Junction points are primed with CCTV and traffic cams, so be vigilant when driving your Norwich car hire through these areas.

  • Petrol prices in Norfolk average about £1.20 per litre while diesel prices weigh in about £1.23 per litre on average. There is a good number of petrol stations scattered around the city including Gulf, BP and Shell, in addition to the Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsburys petrol outlets. It’s worth your while to check out the Asda locations at Hall Road and Drayton High Road, which normally offer cheaper prices at the pump.

  • Outside the city centre, street parking is free in non-restricted areas. Within the city limits you’ll have to pay anywhere from £1.70 to £2.50 per hour to park on the street depending on the zone. Tickets should be prominently displayed to avoid fines. There are several pay and display garages downtown where you can leave your Norwich car hire while you explore the city on foot. St Andrews Car Park is a multi-storey facility perfectly situated for a day of shopping, where it will cost £1.80 per hour and £6 for anything over 4h.
