KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Romford

  • Car hire in Romford makes a great addition to your trip. You'll not only be close to London, with easy park and ride options available with the nearby Romford train station, but you'll also be able to see nearby outdoor sites such as the Hainault Forest Country Park (4 miles from city centre) or Gruffalo trail (8 miles from city centre), offering fun for the whole family.
  • Romford sits within close range of both London City Airport (LCY) and London Southend Airport (SEN), offering an easy connection to or from your flight with car hire companies located in the Arrivals terminal at each airport. There are also plenty of locations around Romford for you to pick up or drop off your hire car, most of which are close to the A12, making it easy for you to plan the rest of your journey.
  • Romford Market, in the heart of the town centre, has taken place since 1247 and continues to attract shoppers from all around. Be aware of the many pedestrians that flock to the town centre on market days when you are driving nearby, particularly during family fun days and special events. There are also plenty of learner drivers in the area, which should be easy to spot. Make sure to give them sufficient space and time to navigate the roads when nearby.
  • Romford is popular with commuters, so try to avoid unnecessary travel around rush hour (8:00–10:00 and 17:00–19:00) during the week. It can also become congested with traffic due to local sporting events at weekends—make sure you check if any football, rugby or cricket fixtures are taking place nearby before setting off. Traffic is also noticeably worse on rainy days, so the day’s forecast should be taken into account, and you can expect more difficult conditions during the winter months.
  • Book your car hire in Romford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Romford are around 7% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Romford

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Romford?

    As a heavily urbanised area, you can’t go wrong with a compact car. Not only does it help you navigate tight streets, but it also makes it that bit easier to find a parking space when you need to do some shopping. If you are planning on using Romford as a base to see more of England’s south-east, then perhaps an estate will be more suitable, or even a eople carrier, depending on the size of your party.

  • What’s the speed limit in Romford?

    Around the town, most of the roads have a speed limit of 30mph, so this is important to remember with your Romford car hire. However, there are major roads nearby with higher limits, as well as residential areas that enforce a maximum speed of 20mph, so it’s always important to be attentive to the road signs. Be particularly careful on the A12 and the nearby A124 and A127, as speed cameras operate in the 30mph zones on these roads.
