KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Nottingham

  • When choosing Nottingham car hire, be aware of peak-hour traffic, especially if you're planning to drive during rush hour. This can be particularly busy in the city centre and around major transport links, such as the A52 and M1. If possible, try to avoid driving during these times or plan your route to avoid the worst of the traffic. Also, keep in mind that some roads may be closed or have restrictions due to ongoing road works, so it's a good idea to check for updates before setting out.
  • One of the benefits of cheap car hire in Nottingham is the freedom to explore the surrounding areas at your own pace. Some nearby destinations worth considering include Sherwood Forest, the Peak District, and the historic city of Lincoln. These places offer a change of scenery from the city centre and can be driven to easily. You can book your car hire in Nottingham with companies such as Enterprise, Hertz, and Europcar, which have locations throughout the city.
  • To hire a car in Nottingham, you must usually be 21 or older, although, there are a few car hire companies that require drivers to be 25 and above. Drivers under 25 may be subject to a young driver fee, and others may have limited options for car models. You'll need to provide a valid driver's licence, proof of identity, and a credit or debit card for payment and deposit purposes. Specific requirements may vary depending on which company you use, so check their terms and conditions before booking your vehicle in Nottingham.
  • Car hire in Nottingham offers you a flexible and enjoyable means of transport for exploring many of the city’s key attractions, such as the famous Sherwood Forest and historic Nottingham Castle. The castle can be found in the city centre, whereas visiting Sherwood Forest will require a short drive north. If you’re ready for a scenic drive beyond the city, take a spin out to the county of Lincolnshire to the east. It’s a 50-mile drive that rewards you with a magnificent stretch of coastline along the North Sea.
  • If you’re flying into East Midlands Airport (EMA), there are various car hire agencies like SIXT, Avis and Alamo from which to choose a vehicle that best serves your needs. Compacts, convertibles and saloons can be reserved in advance, and most car hire companies offer convenient locations for pickup and drop off, often with 24-hr service. Collect your luggage from baggage reclaim and make your way to the car hire area located on the ground floor of the terminal, near the International Arrivals hall.
  • Pay particular attention to bus and bike lanes, as well as pedestrians and students dashing across busy streets. Many hire cars in Nottingham can be equipped with a sat nav to avoid getting lost, and these can also provide alternative routes to best manoeuvre through traffic jams and congested parts of the city.
  • Nottingham is a university city boasting a dynamic culture and a booming economy dominated by science and business, so encounters with morning/evening rush hour traffic should be expected. If you’re keen to get an early start on the road, keep away from the bustling Broadmarsh district during the morning (7:00-9:00) and evening rush hours (16:00-19:00) whenever possible. Collin Street and Canal Street offer easy connections to the A60 and the A6008, but you might find yourself stuck on these main arteries that provide access into, around and out of the city. The A52, which dissects the business/industrial development area of Wollaton Park and the University of Nottingham, is another motorway susceptible to heavy rush hour traffic.

  • Book your car hire in Nottingham at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Nottingham are around -25% cheaper than other car types, on average

Car hire insurance in Nottingham

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Nottingham 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 Nottingham.

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 Nottingham car hire.
