Location information for Northampton

Car hire in Northampton

Dating back to the sixth century, Northampton is the largest and most modern city in Northamptonshire. Found midway between the larger hubs of Birmingham and London, this former market town is famous for its rugby team. The city is enclosed by a ring road giving access to many routes, and the M1 motorway is just to the west, making self-driving tours a breeze. There are a number of recognised car rental agents in town, but visitors should compare cheap car hire in Northampton here to snag the best deals.

Why to visit

Northampton is fast becoming a tourist hot spot due to its great location, as it is easy to visit many other cities and towns from here. The city itself also has a lot to offer, including beautiful neo-gothic buildings and a great museum. It is also home to the world-famous Northampton Saints rugby club. Car hire is ideal for those using Northampton as a base, as the city is well connected to major routes and motorways.


Birmingham International Airport and London Luton Airport, both around an hour's drive away, serve the city. Northampton can be toured by public bus or on foot, but organising car rental in Northampton is the best option for those looking to leave the city and visit other attractions. A vehicle will allow you to visit the lovely riverside town of Stoke Bruerne or the city's many surrounding golf courses. It will also enable you to get to the bustling cities of Birmingham and London.

What to see and do

With Northampton car hire, travellers can easily make the four-mile drive to Althorp House, the resting place of Princess Diana. The town of Rushden is around 12 miles east of the city and makes for a lovely daytrip. Here, visitors will find loads of museums, parks and English heritage sites. The birthplace of Shakespeare and theatre town of Stratford-upon-Avon is just west of Northampton, while the popular attraction of Foxton Locks is less than a 30-minute drive north of the city.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
