Why rent a car in Cambridge with Rentalcars.com?

Whether you need a practical car for city driving or a luxury car for a wedding, you will find your ideal vehicle at Rentalcars.com. Our team negotiate with all the big car hire brands in Cambridge to bring you cheap prices across a wide range of cars: many of the deals on our site are exclusive to us, so you won’t find the same great prices anywhere else. However, if you do find the same car from the same supplier cheaper elsewhere, we will beat the quote. In one simple search, we compare prices from suppliers like Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty — and provide all the information about what is included in the rental upfront.

Top Tips

  • Cambridge is famous for being a bike-friendly city, so watch out for cyclists while on the road.
  • Parking in Cambridge can be difficult as there are only a limited amount of car parks in the city centre, which are very expensive. Using a ‘Park and Ride’ service is a better option if you want to get into the city.
  • Cambridge is full of one-way systems, so a GPS will help you get around if you are unfamiliar with the city.

Which companies offer best value in Cambridge?

We are impartial, so we show ratings and reviews from previous customers next to each listing. Their feedback will give you an insight into how each brand compares in terms of value for money and overall customer satisfaction. Many of the suppliers in Cambridge offer cars with a full-to-full fuel policy (a policy which can help you avoid hidden fuel charges, as long as you refill the tank before dropping the car off). We are more than just a comparison site — we are an end-to-end service, and our job is to make car rental in Cambridge simple and stress-free.

Day trips from Cambridge

Norfolk Coast: Just under a two-hour drive away is one of the most beautiful and important coastlines in the UK. The Norfolk Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasts windswept beaches, quaint fishing villages and an array of wildlife. In fact, the coast is one of the most important spots for seals and migrating birds in the country. Take a walk along the Norfolk Costal Path and enjoy a post-walk meal at a traditional pub.

Anglesey Abbey: Anglesey Abbey and Gardens is a 25-minute drive from Cambridge. This National-Trust-owned Jacobean country mansion once belonged to Lord Fairhaven, who made his fortune in the States during the oil and railroad boom. Now, Anglesey Abbey boasts of a tapestry hall and a vaulted dining room. The beautiful grounds are also worth a visit, with formal and typical English-style landscaped gardens to explore. If you have time, you can also visit Lode Mill — just a short walk from the house.

Saffron Walden: Saffron Walden is a medieval market town just a 40-minute drive from Cambridge. This picturesque settlement is rich in heritage, with some stunning Medieval and Tudor architecture. A market has been held in this town since 1141, and now market days are Tuesdays and Saturdays. A visit to Saffron Walden is not complete without having a drink at the Old Sun Inn, rumoured to have been Oliver Cromwell’s HQ. Just remember not to drink and drive.
