Top tips for hiring a car in Hertfordshire

  • Hertfordshire County has a variety of excellent connections, which can transport you around major attractions of the region by the road networks and to other parts of the United Kingdom. The A1 and M1 motorways connect to the north of England and the major M25 ring road will connect you to all London boroughs. The A41 will also take you to the north-west regions of Manchester and Liverpool and the A10 to Cambridge. Consider a fuel-efficient larger engine vehicle if you are contemplating longer motorway drives for comfort and convenience.
  • Stopping on the hard shoulder of a motorway in the United Kingdom is an offence, unless it is an emergency, or you have broken down. If this is the case, you should carefully park up and put on your hazard lights. Make sure you put yourself over the barrier by the side of the motorway whilst you wait for assistance to avoid any accidents. Assistance phone booths are generally located at every one mile.
  • Drink driving is an offence in the United Kingdom. The alcohol limit in England is 80mgs of alcohol per 100 ml of blood. Although Scotland is still part of the United Kingdom, their legal limit differs, with 50 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood, so be aware of this if you have crossed the border into Scotland.
  • Petrol stations are numerous in the United Kingdom, and you will find many open 24h on most major motorways and roads. If you are venturing into more rural areas and villages, they will most likely fall between the standard opening hours, which are between 08:00 and 20:00.

  • What is driving like in Hertfordshire?

    Road networks in the United Kingdom are generally of a good standard, especially in the south of England and the areas surrounding London. Expect some congestion, however, in the rush hours, particularly around the London areas and M25 ring road as commuters make their way to and from work. These hours tend to fall in-between 07:00-09:00 and 17:00-19:00. The speed limit on motorways is 70mph and it is advisable to keep this pace to ensure safety and the flow of traffic. Motorways in the United Kingdom do not have fast lanes, traffic should keep to the left lane and other lanes should only be used when overtaking. Driving in the United Kingdom is considered orderly and courteous with most drivers adhering to good driving practise. Roads are toll free with the exception of some bridges and the Dartford Crossing.

    You need to be at least 23 years of age to be able to hire a vehicle in the United Kingdom, although many companies reserve their own requirements, which can range anywhere up to 25 years old. A full valid UK license is required for UK residents along with another form of valid ID and a credit or debit card to complete the transaction.
