Top tips for hiring a car in Bedford

  • Explore Bedfordshire in the best way possible, with the flexibility that a car hire in Bedford gives you. Take in the local sites, as well as those further afield, at your own pace and don’t let public transport dictate your movements. Bedford car hire is perfect for if you are staying in the historic market town of Bedford and want to explore the countryside. You can take a 6-mile drive to the popular tourist area of Willington Dovecote and Stables in about 15min, which is quicker than other modes of transport.
  • The closest international airport to Bedford is in Luton, which is approximately 18 miles from the town centre. At London Luton (LTN), you will find a great selection of car rental companies for your onward journey. Pick between companies such as Avis, Enterprise and Hertz, which are all located in the Car Hire Centre just a short shuttle bus journey away from the terminal entrance. At the airport, the free shuttle bus will arrive at Bay C outside the airport arrivals door of the terminal building, before taking you to the Car Hire Centre.
  • As towns go, Bedford is quite large, so having a car to explore the tourist sites is definitely beneficial. You might want to consider adding a navigation system to your Bedford car hire to ensure you don’t take a wrong turn. Due to its popularity as a market town, the streets can get busy with visitors, so be careful of any tourists who are looking at the buildings and not taking notice of the oncoming traffic. You may also notice a larger amount of cyclists down by the Embankment, so care should be taken when driving along the river.
  • During rush hour, which is normally between 8:00 and 9:00 and 17:00 and 18:00, traffic increases as a result of locals going to and from work. It’s advisable to try planning your travel around these times to avoid any delays. Weekends also get very busy with visitors who want to explore the historic market town, so be prepared for more traffic during these times. The worst hit roads are Manton Lane and Clapham Road, which meet at a junction and often get very busy. During the summer, people flock to Bedford Embankment for walks, many of whom drive in from outside the town, so it’s expected to be busier in general during warmer months.
  • Book your car hire in Bedford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hires in Bedford are around 69% cheaper than other car types, on average
