Location information for Nottingham

Car hire in Nottingham

Known as the ‘Queen of the Midlands', Nottingham lies on the northern banks of the River Trent, and is most famous thanks to the legend of Robin Hood. The River Leen separates the centre from the rest of the city, making it easy to navigate. A number of well-known car rental companies have branches here, but it is best to compare cheap car hire in Nottingham online with us to get the lowest quotes.

Why to visit

Of the East Midlands three largest cities, Nottingham is by far the most interesting. It is the most popular city in the region and is home to a number of great attractions and landmarks. It has a fantastic mix of old and new, with historical architecture sitting alongside a vivid music and fashion scene. Nottingham is midway between the exciting cities of Leicester and Derby, making it a fantastic base for self-drive tours of the entire region.


East Midlands Airport, less than a 30-minute drive away, is the main hub serving the city. Some visitors also enter via Robin Hood Airport and Birmingham International Airport. The city has a fantastic public bus service, although the centre is best toured on foot. Arranging Nottingham car hire is the most convenient way to visit main attractions outside of the city, including the famous Sherwood Forest County Park and the beautiful Newstead Abbey.

What to see and do

With car rental in Nottingham, visitors can make the short trip across the River Trent to the town of Bridgeford, where a lovely collection of Victorian architecture can be seen. The impressive Peak District National Park can be reached in an hour, and a trip to Sherwood Forest should not be missed. Newark-on-Trent is the perfect place to go shopping for antiques, while the town of Long Eaton is a great destination for those wishing to gaze at ancient architecture. Driving south along the M1 motorway will take you to Leicester, while heading north will bring you to the bustling city of Sheffield.

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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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).
