  • A car hire in Stafford gives you the freedom and flexibility to explore this charming town in the West Midlands. It also allows you to discover its surrounding areas and nearby cities with ease. Once you’ve visited Stafford Castle and the Ancient High House, you can head out to the historic Snugborough Estate for the day, or take in the scenic views at Cannock Chase, which can be reached in as little as 15-20min by car. Alternatively, you can experience the hustle and bustle of Birmingham in around 35min. A 2h drive away, hikers and mountain climbers alike can visit Snowdonia National Park in Wales, home to the country’s highest mountain – Mount Snowdon.
  • The closest airport to Stafford is Birmingham International, which is a little under 40 miles away. There, you’ll find a large selection of car hire firms to choose from, including Europcar, Sixt and Avis. All desks are located in the main terminal building between Costa and Wrapchic. Simply pick up your Stafford car hire a 5min walk away next to Car Park 4 and be on your way in no time. Exit the airport and take the M6 north directly into Stafford town centre. The journey should take no longer than 45min in normal traffic.
  • Staffordshire is an old Anglo-Saxon town comprised of narrow cobbled streets that should be driven with caution. During busy periods like Saturday mornings, the town can have lots of pedestrians to watch out for. Roads are well-maintained and signs are clear, although you may find adding a sat-nav to your car hire in Stafford useful if you’re not familiar with the area.
