Like many European cities, Stansted dates back to long before automobiles. What this means for drivers is that many of the streets are better suited for smaller vehicles like compacts, sedans, and coupes than they are for large SUVs or trucks. Parking spaces, especially as you get closer to London proper, are often limited in number and size, making them much better suited to smaller cars.
Roads within built-up areas of Stansted typically feature speed limits of 30 mph. On divided highways (“dual carriageways”) and undivided highways (“single carriageways”), on the other hand, the speed limit goes up to 70 mph and 60 mph, respectively. Motorways in the city also feature speed limits of 70 mph.
Drivers will find that parking is widely available and much cheaper in Stansted compared to other neighboring English towns, particularly compared to the prices seen in downtown London. There are also plenty of parking lots and garages available in the more densely populated parts of town where streetside parking may be limited. Outside of the most popular areas, streetside parking is the predominant method of parking and is often easily and immediately available.

Pros:Processed rental quickly. Got on our way quickly.
Cons:I was charged extra money because I made the reservation on kayak.com rather than a UK based website. They wouldn’t give me the keys without an additional 40 GBP charge.
