KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Chesterfield

  • Gain the freedom to explore this charming Derbyshire town when you arrange a car hire in Chesterfield. Take in the Church of Saint Mary and All Saints and its famous crooked spire and learn about the town’s Roman origins at the local Chesterfield Museum. Hiring a car also lets you venture further afield and uncover hidden gems in the area. The stunning Peak District National Park is right on your doorstep and offers unforgettable hiking trails. Thriving cities such as Sheffield and Nottingham are reachable in around 30min, and you can be in the centre of Manchester in roughly 1h 40min.
  • The closest airport to Chesterfield is Doncaster Sheffield Airport, which is just under 35 miles away. You’ll find the likes of Avis and Hertz in the main terminal building and they will get you up and running with your Chesterfield car hire in no time. Alternatively, you can fly into East Midlands Airport, which is a similar distance away from Chesterfield and hosts a range of other top companies, including Sixt, Europcar, and Enterprise. These are also found in the main terminal.
  • The roads in and around Chesterfield are generally easy to navigate. There are some one-way systems and larger junctions, so you may find a sat-nav helpful if you’re not familiar with the area. Residential streets can be narrow, with parked cars lining either side of the road. A little extra care should be taken here. The country roads in the Peak District can be long and winding with large farming vehicles and lorries passing through. Always be mindful when overtaking on these roads.
  • Chesterfield is a relatively large town and is liable to clog up with traffic, especially on roads like the A617 and the A61. The M1, which runs right by, can experience significant rush hour traffic. This tends to be between the hours of 07:30-09:30 and 16:30-18:30, so if you can, try to avoid motorways like this during peak periods. It’s also advisable to steer clear of the Horns Bridge roundabout. Accidents are common since it is notoriously difficult to navigate. If you’re here in the winter season, conditions can be treacherous with plenty of snowfall and fog high up in the Peak District.
  • Book your rental car in Chesterfield at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Chesterfield are around 2% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Chesterfield

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Chesterfield?

Pros:

Quick and easy collect and drop off arrangements. Personal call from Enterprise two days before rental to confirm arrangements. Car was clean and operated flawlessly throughout the rental. Engine was efficient - diesel - and auto gears made driving effortless, allowing me to focus on navigating unfamiliar roads. Cabin space held four large adults in comfort and boot space was very generous for four sets of luggage plus computer bags etc.

Cons:

The only issue I had was a little more wind noise than I expected for a nearly new car. My 7 yr old BMW is much quieter.
