Top tips for renting a car in Stansted

  • Visitors to Stansted are highly recommended to rent a vehicle during their time in the city, simply so that they can take full advantage of England’s wonderful sights and local culture.

Located just 6.4 miles away, it is a former royal hunting ground with trees that date back to over a 1,000 years ago.

  • It is illegal to use a cell phone or other hand-held device while driving in Stansted and throughout the U.K. This includes texting, phone calls, and using your phone as a GPS device while driving and when stopped at a traffic light. To legally use a cell phone, drivers must have it a hands-free mode. Additionally, if using it for navigation, the phone must be programmed ahead of time as you cannot enter the address while operating the vehicle.
  • Due to its proximity to London, Stansted does experience general commuter rush hour woes. During the work week, rush hour usually starts up shortly after 7:00 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. The afternoon and evening rush hour generally goes from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 or 7:00 p.m.
