Once you’ve explored Cambridge’s historic colleges and had a punt on The Backs, hiring a car means you can also plot a course for the Fens, where you’ll discover pretty villages, thatched cottages and leafy watercourses that rival this grand university city.
Cambridge doesn't currently have an airport – the old Cambridge International closed to passengers back in 2016. If you’re flying into nearby London Stansted Airport (STN), however, you could hire a car from there – it's just 50km (31 miles) to the south along the M11 motorway.
If you do pick up a rental car from London Stansted, you can be in Cambridge in just over 30 minutes. A host of hire firms operate out of the airport’s Car Rental Village, so shop around to find a good cheap deal. The centre is open seven days a week and is easily accessed from the terminal via regular shuttle bus services.
Car rental companies that have a presence at London Stansted include:
If you’re arriving in Cambridge from another location, you may prefer to pick up a car in the city centre. Most of the city’s car hire operators can be found on Newmarket Road and adjoining Swanns Road, but you can also collect a vehicle from the railway station.
