Car Rental in Cambridge Mini Guide

Cambridge is located 50 miles north of London and London Stansted airport from where you can rent a Rhino hire car. London Luton airport is also quite close and with major low cost airlines easyJet and Ryanair flying into these terminals you can get to Cambridge from many world wide locations. Car Rental is available from all of these locations, or you may wish to choose a one way car rental to suit your requirements. 

If you can only find flights to Heathrow you can collect your hire car and  it will take you just over an hour drive to get to Cambridge but try to avoid flying to Gatwick as this is more than three hours away. From London you want to take the M11 which then joins the A10. If you are driving to Cambridge from the north you will arrive via the A1 and the A14.
