Top tips for hiring a car in Peterborough

  • A car hire in Peterborough offers better mobility and convenience than public transport when it comes to exploring the multitude of parks, as well as cultural and historical places of interest the city has to offer. Additionally, its flat topography makes it ideal for motor transport. When compiling your sightseeing list, visits to the grand Elton Hall (about 10 miles) or the spectacular Burghley House (approx. 15 miles) should rate as top choices. For a breezy afternoon diversion, the 41-mile drive down to Cambridge via the A1/A14 is an excellent adventure.
  • London Luton Airport (LTN) is the closest major airport to the city (48 miles) and therefore one of the best places to get a car hire in Peterborough if you are commuting by plane. To arrive at the Car Hire Centre you’ll need to board the free shuttle bus, which leaves Bay C of the terminal bus station located just outside the terminal exit and across the street.
  • Since it’s not a major tourist destination you shouldn’t expect major traffic queues or gridlock along city streets and highways, but that doesn’t mean you won’t encounter a few now and then. The downtown area is pockmarked with attractions, businesses and institutions so moderate to heavy pedestrian, bike and motorcycle flow should be anticipated. Areas to avoid during the usual rush hour periods include the A15 (Bourges Boulevard), A47 (Soke Parkway) and A1139 (Frank Perkins Highway), which are the main highways flowing vehicles in and out of the city.
  • The peak period for the normal morning rush is 07:00-09:00 and the huge Boongate Roundabout just outside City College Peterborough is one area that should be avoided during these hours. The A15 near Queensgate Shopping Centre might be tricky between 13:00-15:00 and the evening rush period between 18:00-20:00 is busiest on the A47 and A1139. If your travel plans take you across either of these arteries, have a back-up route in case of emergencies.
  • Book your car hire in Peterborough at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
