Traffic Information

Traffic Information

Our car rental in Cambridge branch is centrally located on Elizabeth Way in the Chesterton area of the city. It is just a short bus drive away from Cambridge Train Station.

Cambridge lies 50 miles north of London and is well connected by road to the main cities and towns of East Anglia such as Norwich, Ely and Newmarket. The historic areas of Cambridge are mainly pedestrianised and the city council discourages car use in the city centre through a system of rising bollards operated by transponders on permitted vehicles. Our expert office staff can advise you about driving in the city when you collect your vehicle.

Parking charges in the heart of the city are high but most of the tourist sights can be visited on foot. Five large multistory car parks are located across the city all with 24-hour parking and within easy reach of Cambridge attractions.
