KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Welwyn Garden City

  • If you're looking for cheap car hire in Welwyn Garden City, choose one that best fits the purpose of your visit and resist the temptation to get anything more extravagant. For instance, if you're visiting by yourself or as a couple, you won't need more than a small economical car to explore this city. The youngest age at which you can hire a car here is 21 years, but note that if you're under 25, these smaller vehicles are the only ones most car hire companies will allow you to rent. If you want a larger or more powerful vehicle, you'll have to be at least 25 years.
  • When booking Welwyn Garden City car hire for a family visit, remember that you'll need to observe the laws regarding children travelling in vehicles. It's mandatory for all children under 12 years to be secured in a child seat, unless they are more that 135 cm in height. You are required to use a height-based seat, or "i-Size" seat as the government calls them, if your child is really young. These must face the rear for those under 15 months. You can get such child seats from your car hire company as extras with your booking. While you're choosing one, you can avail yourself of other useful extras like sat nav units too.
  • You can get cheap car hire in Welwyn Garden City in the form of hybrid or electric cars. Not only are they kinder to the environment, but you'll also save a lot by removing the fuel costs you would otherwise pay if you hire a vehicle with an internal combustion engine. There are many EV charging points in the city, including those that give rapid recharges. The borough council publishes a list of where these are so consult that to find them easily. Note that a four-hour time limit applies from 7am to 7pm every day of the week. You have unlimited time to charge outside of those hours.
  • Welwyn Garden City is a relatively modern town situated in the county of Hertfordshire. The town has strong commercial links due in large part to the excellent road network that surrounds it. There is no better way to enjoy these highways and byways than with car hire in Welwyn Garden City, which affords you the luxury of unlimited freedom and convenience beyond public transport. Savour the view with a roadtrip to Nottingham, 109 miles north via the M1, or travel to Bournemouth, 122 miles south along the M3.
  • If you fly into London Luton Airport (LTN) you’ll have the perfect opportunity to obtain your car hire in Welwyn Garden City. Among the premier providers waiting to assist you at the airport’s car hire centre are Avis, Alamo and Enterprise. The airport provides a free shuttle bus which will transport you the short distance to their offices; you’ll find it in Bay C at the terminal’s bus station, just outside the main building.
  • In Welwyn Garden City the B195/Campus Ring Road in the heart of the downtown area tops the list of trouble spots for morning and evening traffic congestion, followed by the Mundells/A1000 circular to the immediate north-east. Anticipate high pedestrian activity during mid-afternoon hours around The Campus where Oakfield College is located; along Bridge Road East, a prime retail thoroughfare; and near the Gosling Sports Complex, especially on evenings and at weekends.
  • Rush hours in Welwyn Garden City will peak between 07:00 and 08:30 and again from 18:00 to 19:30. Expect slow-downs along the A1000 and A6129 carrying outbound traffic south to the A1(M), as well as on the B195 and B1000 connecting outbound traffic east to the A414. Evening inbound patterns reverse this flow with congestion increasing the closer you are to downtown. From 13:00 to 15:00 the area around The Campus is ground zero for high levels of overall traffic due to the busy lunch and retail period, and you should avoid driving along Bridge Road during these hours for the same reason.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Welwyn Garden City for £24 or less
  • Book your car hire in Welwyn Garden City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
