Top tips for hiring a car in Nottinghamshire

  • A standard vehicle works well for navigating Nottinghamshire, as the road and weather conditions are generally good. However, if you are planning to explore further afield, like a trip to the Peak District National Park, you may prefer to hire a 4x4 or an SUV, which will give you a bit of extra control on country roads. Business travellers visiting Nottingham can rent one of the premium vehicles offered by car hire companies in the area, and in the summer months convertible options are a popular choice.
  • If you’re travelling with children, it’s important to be aware that it’s the law across the UK for children below 12 years old to use a child seat, if they are not more than 135 cm tall. However, we recommend using a car seat for all children under 12 and under 150cm tall. Only an EU-approved car seat can be used in the UK and it’s easy to add an approved child seat or booster seat to your booking when you hire a car in Nottinghamshire – it's just a case of one click with most companies when you book online. We recommend requesting this service in advance in order to guarantee availability.
  • When you hire a car from a company in Nottinghamshire, you are able to use it to cross the border into Scotland or Wales, for no additional cost. Exact journey times will depend on your destination, but as a general guide Cardiff is around 180 miles away from Nottinghamshire and Glasgow is around 270 miles away. Due to the long distances it’s worth considering the mileage limit imposed by each car hire company in Nottinghamshire before booking your vehicle – some companies provide unlimited mileage, which is could be an attractive option if you are planning on visiting other countries in the UK.
