Due to the relative lack of gridlock in Milton Keynes, you’re pretty free to choose any model of hire car you prefer, although you’ll always get better fuel economy from a compact car if you’re going to be mainly driving in the city centre, simply because of the traffic lights. If you want to roam the surrounding countryside, then hire a saloon or an MPV. If you really intend to do some serious off-roading in the area, then a 4x4 would be an appropriate choice. These are all standard options with most companies offering car hire in Milton Keynes.
Because of the grid layout promoting traffic flow, the speed limits in Milton Keynes are predominantly set at the national speed limit of 30mph in the inner areas (the H roads and V roads) and 40mph to 70mph on the arterial roads and motorways. However, be aware that certain inner city areas have been changed to 20mph zones, such as New Road and School Lane.
