Top tips for renting a car in Peterborough

  • A car hire in Peterborough offers better mobility and convenience than public transport when it comes to exploring the multitude of parks, as well as cultural and historical places of interest the city has to offer. Additionally, its flat topography makes it ideal for motor transport. When compiling your sightseeing list, visits to the grand Elton Hall (about 10 miles) or the spectacular Burghley House (approx. 15 miles) should rate as top choices. For a breezy afternoon diversion, the 41-mile drive down to Cambridge via the A1/A14 is an excellent adventure.
  • London Luton Airport (LTN) is the closest major airport to the city (48 miles) and therefore one of the best places to get a car hire in Peterborough if you are commuting by plane. To arrive at the Car Hire Centre you’ll need to board the free shuttle bus, which leaves Bay C of the terminal bus station located just outside the terminal exit and across the street.
  • Since it’s not a major tourist destination you shouldn’t expect major traffic queues or gridlock along city streets and highways, but that doesn’t mean you won’t encounter a few now and then. The downtown area is pockmarked with attractions, businesses and institutions so moderate to heavy pedestrian, bike and motorcycle flow should be anticipated. Areas to avoid during the usual rush hour periods include the A15 (Bourges Boulevard), A47 (Soke Parkway) and A1139 (Frank Perkins Highway), which are the main highways flowing vehicles in and out of the city.
  • The peak period for the normal morning rush is 07:00-09:00 and the huge Boongate Roundabout just outside City College Peterborough is one area that should be avoided during these hours. The A15 near Queensgate Shopping Centre might be tricky between 13:00-15:00 and the evening rush period between 18:00-20:00 is busiest on the A47 and A1139. If your travel plans take you across either of these arteries, have a back-up route in case of emergencies.

  • Present-day Peterborough is a modern city, which means that most vehicles should have little difficulty on streets in the city centre.

  • The mandatory speed limit on all city streets within the precincts of Peterborough is 20mph. In certain areas outside populated zones or commercial districts, speeds can increase to 30mph to ease the flow of traffic. The A15, A47 and A1139 all carry maximum limits of 50mph, which can increase the further outside the city you drive. Boongate Roundabout is a prime area where CCTV and traffic cams are in effect, so be wary of yielding vehicles, cyclists and motorcycles in the area.

  • The average prices for petrol (£1.20) and diesel (£1.25) in Peterborough are relatively high compared to the national averages. Approximately 25 refuelling stations are open for business in Peterborough, most of which are BP, Shell or Esso pumps. Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsburys are three shopping chains selling petrol at some of their locations.

  • Peterborough City Council offers on-street metered parking on several of its streets. These pay-and-display areas are always short stay and though the tariff is constant (£1.50) the time limit can vary from 30min up to 2h. Please note that between 20:30-08:00 on-street parking is free throughout the city, if you can find a spot. The Council also administers a dozen or so car parks where you can leave your Peterborough car hire and enjoy daytime or evening pleasures. The rate at these garages ranges from £1-£2 per hour and a few are multi-storey facilities.
