KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lichfield

  • The city of Lichfield is famous for its Medieval cathedral with three spires, as well as for the Staffordshire Hoard which was discovered a few miles away. Lichfield has strong rail links to other parts of Staffordshire and West Midlands as well as local bus routes for transport around the city, but these are all constrained by schedules and timetable. Only car hire in Lichfield affords you the freedom and convenience to determine your own schedule, so you go where you want, whenever you want. Birmingham is approximately 20 miles south via the A38 while Derby lies 27 miles along the A38 to the north.
  • Passengers arriving at Birmingham Airport can reserve a car hire from the airport’s dedicated centre or pick one up from the Fly and Drive to Lichfield. Avis/Budget, Alamo/National and Hertz/Firefly are a few major providers with offices at Birmingham Airport and the pick-up area is located near Car Park 4, a short walk from the terminal building. To drive off in an SUV, mid-sized saloon or compact car you must be at least 21 years of age but be advised that airport providers levy young drivers’ fees on anyone below 25 years of age.
  • Check your passengers are wearing seatbelts and connect your hands-free device before leaving Birmingham Airport Car Park. Drive your car hire in Lichfield on the left-side of the road along the M42 to the city and be mindful of road signs and oncoming traffic as you go. Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is not only illegal but also extremely dangerous to you and others, so drive responsibly at all times. If you or another motorist encounters an emergency on the road, dial 999 for assistance.
  • The Swinfen Interchange south of the city is a key area for inbound and outbound traffic congestion to Lichfield while the A51 and A5127 approaching Lichfield City Railway Station experience slow traffic during the morning and evening rush hours. The environs around Staffordshire University and Festival Gardens are major areas of pedestrian activity, especially during the afternoon lunch hours from 1pm-3pm. You should also anticipate moderate traffic around The Close near Lichfield Cathedral during Sunday church services and weekdays during the summer.
  • Book your car hire in Lichfield at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Lichfield are around 31% cheaper than other car types, on average
