Top tips for renting a car in Leicester

  • Visit the National Space Centre, explore the inner town of Leicester, or venture out into the English countryside – with your own rental car there are no limits during your time in the UK. Leicester is an old university city with many fascinating sights and a scenic surrounding countryside which is just waiting to be explored, so rent your own four wheels and make the most of your trip.
  • The closest airport to Leicester is East Midlands Airport, about 19 miles from Leicester’s center. The airport is host to various onsite car rental agencies which are located in the main terminal building. Pick up a car directly from there and head towards Leicester on the M1 to reach the city in about half an hour, depending on your ultimate destination.
  • People who come from countries where you drive on the right side may be confused at first in Leicester. The steering wheel in the UK is on the right and it is advised to rent a GPS system with the rental car, as navigating on the “wrong” (left) side of the road becomes easier. Remember to enter roundabouts clockwise and pay extra attention at intersections.
  • The old inner town of Leicester features narrower roads and during rush hour it can be challenging for first-time visitors to navigate through the roads. Rush hour usually occurs in the city between 7 and 9 in the morning and 5 to 8 in the evening, during which streets can get clogged up with commuters, so try to avoid peak times for a more pleasant experience.
