Important information about Leicester car hire

If you're hoping to get a hire car in Leicester and take the car across the border and through Europe, you may need to discuss this with your rental company first. Luckily for you, many companies will allow you to take your hire car across the border, though you may be charged an additional fee for insurance. If you're planning on taking a trip to the Republic of Ireland, you'll be happy to know that nearly all rental companies allow this. To take your rental vehicle across the border, you will need to obtain written permission from your car hire in Leicester as well as a legally required form VE103B. It might be more affordable to drop your car off at the border and pick up another one in your destination country. You'll save on insurance costs and border fees.

If you're looking for cheap car rentals in Leicester, you'll more than likely need a credit card to complete your rental. Remember, the name on the credit card must be the same as the intended main driver for the car or certainly one of the drivers. You won't be able to rent a vehicle with someone else's payment card. Although most car rental locations in Leicester require a credit card, you are likely to find some rental companies that accept debit cards, such as Europcar or Orbitz. It's worth having a conversation with your rental agency beforehand to double-check. All Leicester car hire will demand a debit or credit card to complete your rental and none will agree to a cash rental. This is due to cards making it easier to protect both the customer and the rental company from fraud and misuse.

Leicester is one of the largest cities in the country, so there is a fair amount of traffic on the roads. Choosing car hire in Leicester means you must be aware of the traffic laws which are strictly enforced in the whole of the UK. You'll find traffic cameras installed on most streets in the city to monitor traffic. Pay close attention to the speed limits whilst driving, as there are plenty of speed cameras around. Remember that street parking can be illegal in the UK, and Leicester is no different. To avoid having your vehicle towed or clamped, we suggest parking in designated areas only.  If you find yourself driving in Leicester during icy conditions, you'll need to keep a couple of things in mind. Remember to de-ice your car completely before driving to avoid being fined for a car that's dangerous to drive. Don't brake harshly; always ease into it to prevent skidding on icy roads.

If you're a foreign national looking for car hire in Leicester, you'll need to produce your passport and a valid driving licence that you've held for at least a year. If you're travelling from the USA, Australia, Canada, or New Zealand, you will be allowed to drive in Leicester without an international driving licence. Other nationalities may need to hold this for renting a vehicle anywhere in the UK. Please keep your confirmation details with you, along with your passport or another valid form of identification, and a credit or debit card in the driver's name.
