KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Milton Keynes

  • Hiring a car in Milton Keynes will allow you to strike out to must-see places such as Bletchley Park, site of Alan Turing’s famous World War II code-breaking project, without having to rely on public transport. Other excellent places to visit in the city include Woburn Abbey and Gardens and Willen Lakeside Park for some outdoor revitalisation, and the Peace Pagoda in the Japanese and Zen gardens just on the northern outskirts of the city. You’ll easily be able to reach places like these when you opt for car hire in Milton Keynes.
  • To reach the city by air you’ll need to fly into Luton Airport (LTN), which is just over 20 miles away. You can book your Milton Keynes car hire from there in advance. Plenty of the most popular brands have offices there, and they’re very easy to find once you’ve landed. The airport’s car hire centre is a little way from the main Arrivals building, but getting there is not a problem at all – there are constant free shuttles from a well-signposted bay as you step out of the terminal.
  • Driving in Milton Keynes is actually a pleasant experience as it’s a city that is quite spread out. One thing to be very aware of in advance is that there’s a serious cycling culture there, well supported by the council, so be on the lookout for cyclists all over. At the same time it’s also a very car-friendly city. The main reason for this is that it has a grid layout similar to US cities, making it particularly easy to find your way around, although the regularity and similarity of the intersections might lead to some confusion at first.
  • Milton Keynes does have its fair share of rush hours, but the city doesn’t get too congested at these times, thanks to traffic not being clustered on too many single routes. The roads to watch out for between about 07:00 and 09:00 are mainly the larger motorways taking cars in and out of town, particularly the M1. Take the A421 instead if you’re taking advantage of your car to visit tourist attractions in nearby areas.
  • Book your rental car in Milton Keynes at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Milton Keynes are around 36% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Milton Keynes

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Milton Keynes?

    Due to the relative lack of gridlock in Milton Keynes, you’re pretty free to choose any model of hire car you prefer, although you’ll always get better fuel economy from a compact car if you’re going to be mainly driving in the city centre, simply because of the traffic lights. If you want to roam the surrounding countryside, then hire a saloon or an MPV. If you really intend to do some serious off-roading in the area, then a 4x4 would be an appropriate choice. These are all standard options with most companies offering car hire in Milton Keynes.

  • What’s the speed limit in Milton Keynes?

    Because of the grid layout promoting traffic flow, the speed limits in Milton Keynes are predominantly set at the national speed limit of 30mph in the inner areas (the H roads and V roads) and 40mph to 70mph on the arterial roads and motorways. However, be aware that certain inner city areas have been changed to 20mph zones, such as New Road and School Lane.

  • Where are the best places to park in Milton Keynes?

    For free parking in the centre of Milton Keynes, head for the Food Centre Multi-storey in Lower Twelfth Street, where you’ll be able to park for 2h at a time, or to The Hub, where you’ll find a large Sainsbury’s car park. Paid parking arcades cost an average of £2 per hour.

Take pictures of the outside and inside of the car from various angles before leaving the lot. Gave me a car with every wheel damaged then claimed I did more damage to one of the wheels. Have now had two bad experiences with Sixt. Won’t rent from them again.
