KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Derby

  • Are you planning to visit Derby for a vacation? Consider getting a car rental because nothing beats the convenience of not relying on third-party operators for your daily schedules. You will have the flexibility to plan each day and be in total control of your trips. You’ll drive your cheap car rentals in Derby to any destination of your choice anytime during your stay in the city. You’ll gain the convenience to visit among other places, Derby Cathedral Quarter, Derby Museum and Art Gallery, Derwent Rivers, and Pickford’s Home Museum. If you are an aviation enthusiast, you can visit East Midlands Aeropark - 19 km away - in just about 17min.
  • Suppose you are flying to Derby - you’ll land at East Midland Airport. Grab your cheap car rentals at the airport since it offers a wide array of rental cars. In addition to being the hub of car rental agencies, getting cheap car rentals in Derby at the airport allows you to go for the best deal. Some of the car rental agencies you'll encounter include but are not limited to Thrifty, Hertz, Enterprise-Rent-A-Car, Sunnycars, Europcar, Budget, and FREE2MOVE. While they offer amazing deals, each car rental agency has unique deals. Therefore, engage multiple agencies before getting cheap car rentals in Derby.
  • When driving your cheap car rentals in Derby, you’ll encounter several streets and intersections. Navigating through these streets and intersections could be overwhelming and you can easily miss a lane and go astray. Fortunately, most rental cars in the city are fitted with a navigation system to help you maneuver the streets. In addition to saving you time, the navigation system will save you money since you won’t spend a lot of gas finding your way. Ask your car rental company to help guide you on how to use the navigation system.
  • Car hire in Derby will allow you to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city and surrounding Derbyshire without having to rely on third-party operators like taxis and the local public transport system. You can plan each day’s itinerary at your own pace and simply drive everywhere whenever you want. Given that freedom, places that deserve a visit include Derby Cathedral, Pickford’s House Museum and the Derby Museum and Art Gallery. If you take about a 2.5-mile drive out of town, you’ll find Markeaton Park, known for the many activities that happen in its formal gardens and orangery, especially for children.
  • If you’re flying to Derby, you’ll land at East Midlands Airport. Here you can pick up your Derby car hire very conveniently, whether your booking through KAYAK is for Avis, Hertz, Sixt, Europcar or another company. Their kiosks are all located inside the terminal building, on the western side. You’ll then be shown to the short-stay parking area just outside the terminal, where you’ll be able to get into your hire car and drive the roughly 15-mile route to Derby itself.
  • One of the biggest things to be aware of when driving in and around Derby is that it can snow quite a bit in winter. The local council issues snow warnings when the roads are likely to be affected, so keep an ear or eye out for those. You can also use Derbyshire county’s live road condition cameras, which you’ll find on the county’s official website. Most of the roads are gritted once the conditions warrant it, so this will help you if you’re not used to driving in snowy conditions. Make sure that you watch out for other cars in this kind of weather as well.
  • Rush hour in Derby is limited to the city centre and the various motorways that feed the city. In the latter case, stay clear of the M1 Southbound at the J23 intersection. Another particularly congested road is the A52 Westbound, where it meets the A6514. Lastly, during rush hours, which are between 08:00 and 09:00 in the morning and from around 16:00 till 17:30, try to avoid the A50. The traffic ebbs and flows, but the road can be challenging to cross or turn on to during busy times.
  • Book your rental car in Derby at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Derby are around 2% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Standard rental cars in Derby are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Derby

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

    Once again, it’s the snow that you’ll have to bear in mind most when booking car hire in Derby. Make sure you hire a vehicle with high-traction tyres if you’re visiting in winter. An MPV or SUV will do you nicely, and a 4x4 will be even better. However, if you stick to the many gritted roads throughout the city, you’ll have no problem in a decent sedan, or even one of the smaller ones. Outside those times of the year you can expand your choice, but just be aware that you may have to deal with potholes caused by the snowy winter conditions.
