Location information for Northampton

Northampton is a charming old market town at the heart of the UK's East Midlands region. The River Nene flows though it en route to the Wash. In days of yore, Northampton was the biggest shoe and leather producing town in the country. The town's central location is great for onward travel when driving a rental vehicle. Preferential rates are often located when you compare car hire online.



Northampton railway station is on the main line between London Euston and Birmingham New Street stations and most people taking public transport to reach Northampton use the service. There are buses around town and daytime services to outlying villages, but services are infrequent and car hire in Northampton offers much more convenience.

Car Hire Northampton

A self-drive provides the means of seeing more than the town's Holy Sepulchre Church and its iconic Guildhall. Oxford and Cambridge are both only 40 miles away and easily accessible with rental vehicles. Enterprise, Avis and Hertz are among the major rentals suppliers with service offices in Northampton.


In the town centre, the main sights and shopping precincts can be reached on foot. Once outside the central area, expensive taxis or self-drive are really the only options. Roads in the town's environs are in good shape. The M1 motorway's junctions, 15 and 15A, are just to the southwest of town. Visitors travelling north or south can use the M1 as their primary route.

Things To See and Do

When using car rental in Northampton, Rockingham Castle and Warwick Castle are two of the fine historic sites within easy range. On the edge of town, Billing Aquadrome provides entertainment for the whole family. Royal Leamington Spa is 30 miles across country. The spa town is home to attractions such as the Royal Pump Rooms and Baths and Jephson Gardens as well as lots of shops and speciality stores.

Best Time To Visit

Due to the vagaries of weather in the country it is probably better to visit Northampton between June and early September. Temperatures are usually over 20°C at this time of year and, apart from the odd storm, there is usually less rain. Between November and February the thermometer frequently drops below 0°C and ground frost is common.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
