The city of Peterborough boasts a number of historic attractions as well as great nightlife and shopping venues. The city straddles the River Nene and is in a central position for travelling around the region. Fares for public transport are not cheap in this part of the country and self-drive vehicles are a more economical option. The cheapest deals can be located if you compare car hire online.
Peterborough railway station is a regional hub as it is a stop on the London to Edinburgh East Coast Main Line, and several cross-country routes also converge here. The city's majestic cathedral, the Guildhall and shops are within walking distance. Buses or taxis are the choices for reaching the suburbs and outlying villages, yet car hire in Peterborough provides much more freedom when exploring.
A self-drive hire allows Peterborough visitors to see more than the cathedral. The city is in a prime spot for reaching the Fens, Cambridge and South Lincolnshire. Reputable suppliers offering rental vehicles in the city include Avis, Enterprise and Thrifty.
City centre locations are accessible on foot, but anywhere else is easier to get to by car. Outside weekday rush hours, roads in and around the city rarely get congested. A modern and well-signposted road system enables drivers to get around with the minimum of fuss.

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.
