Top tips for renting a car in Coventry

  • Do you want to visit the Coventry Transport Museum and the famous Coventry Cathedral, but also the many golf courses and nature parks dotted around the city? With a rental car, there are no limits to your travel itinerary, allowing you the freedom to explore everything this beautiful city has in store.
  • The closest international airport to Coventry is Birmingham International Airport, which is 11 miles from the city and only a 20-minute drive away. Travelers can get a car directly from a range of agencies offering rental cars on site and continue their way to Coventry hassle-free and in comfort. Head to the arrivals hall, where internationally renowned agencies like Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz are situated.
  • Consider renting a GPS system with your rental car for your time in Coventry if you are not used to driving on the left side of the road. In the beginning it can be confusing, but with extra attention to the road and a GPS system, drivers should face no problems. The biggest challenges are with roundabouts and intersections – remember to enter the former clockwise and to venture into the latter extra attentively.
  • Rush hour usually hits Coventry on weekdays around 7-9 am and in the evenings from 5 to 7 pm. A4053 is the ring around the city and is most affected during these peak times, so try to avoid it if possible. Even though England does not get too much snow in the winter, due to freezing rain and sleet, the roads can become slippery during the cold months and extra attention and caution are required.
  • Book your rental car in Coventry at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Coventry are around 4% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Coventry has a very old center with narrow streets and with a smaller car it becomes easier to navigate through them. As drivers drive on the left side, stick shifts can be confusing as they would be handled with the left hand. An automatic car can therefore make matters less puzzling, allowing you to simply focus on the road.

  • 30 mph is the maximum speed limit in the city, although it is only 20 mph in specific places, such as close to schools or highly pedestrianized areas. When leaving the city, cars can speed up to 60 mph, even 70 mph on some roads, and freeways permit up to 70 mph. Always bear the British weather in mind and adjust your speed when there is heavy rainfall or wet leaves on the road.

Gas is more expensive in Coventry than in the United States, but these rates are pretty standard for the European mainland and the whole of Great Britain. Payment can be done by card or cash at the machines or at the counter after filling up.

  • On-street parking time limits range from 2 to 4 hours in Coventry, and it is best to check the designated sign for details. Time restrictions apply between 8 am and 6 pm and rates are around £1 ($1.27) per hour. There are also various parking lots, for example on Belgrade Plaza or Cox Street, which also cost around £1 per hour and are centrally located.
