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 hire 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 hire 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 hire 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.
  • Book your rental car in Leicester at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Leicester?

Especially drivers who are not used to driving on the left side of the road may want to choose a smaller car to be able to maneuver more easily. Additionally, a compact car requires less gas, and petrol is pretty expensive in the UK when compared to the US.

What's the speed limit in Leicester?

Unlike most European countries, miles are used for posting the speed limit in the UK. Around schools and highly pedestrian zones, 20 mph is permitted, while 30 mph is the limit for the rest of the city. Country roads allow between 60 and 70 mph, while freeways (called motorways in England and marked with an “M”) permit up to 70 mph.

How are gas prices in Leicester?

Expect to pay around £1.20 for a liter of petrol during your stay in Leicester ($1.53 USD per liter, which means $6.12 USD per gallon). Paying is possible with cash or card, but bear in mind that, if paying with card at the machine, a 4-digit pin for verification may be required.

Where are the best places to park in Leicester?

There are various parking facilities available in Leicester, including city council garages and lots, such as in Victoria Park, on Dover Street, or in Phoenix Square. Rates are around £1 ($1.28) per hour in the city center and per two or three hours further out of town. Metered on-street parking is also an option, with prices around £3 ($3.84) per two hours.
