KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Welwyn Garden City

  • Welwyn Garden City is a relatively modern town situated in the county of Hertfordshire. The town has strong commercial links due in large part to the excellent road network that surrounds it. There is no better way to enjoy these highways and byways than with car hire in Welwyn Garden City, which affords you the luxury of unlimited freedom and convenience beyond public transport. Savour the view with a roadtrip to Nottingham, 109 miles north via the M1, or travel to Bournemouth, 122 miles south along the M3.
  • If you fly into London Luton Airport (LTN) you’ll have the perfect opportunity to obtain your car hire in Welwyn Garden City. Among the premier providers waiting to assist you at the airport’s car hire centre are Avis, Alamo and Enterprise. The airport provides a free shuttle bus which will transport you the short distance to their offices; you’ll find it in Bay C at the terminal’s bus station, just outside the main building.
  • In Welwyn Garden City the B195/Campus Ring Road in the heart of the downtown area tops the list of trouble spots for morning and evening traffic congestion, followed by the Mundells/A1000 circular to the immediate north-east. Anticipate high pedestrian activity during mid-afternoon hours around The Campus where Oakfield College is located; along Bridge Road East, a prime retail thoroughfare; and near the Gosling Sports Complex, especially on evenings and at weekends.
  • Rush hours in Welwyn Garden City will peak between 07:00 and 08:30 and again from 18:00 to 19:30. Expect slow-downs along the A1000 and A6129 carrying outbound traffic south to the A1(M), as well as on the B195 and B1000 connecting outbound traffic east to the A414. Evening inbound patterns reverse this flow with congestion increasing the closer you are to downtown. From 13:00 to 15:00 the area around The Campus is ground zero for high levels of overall traffic due to the busy lunch and retail period, and you should avoid driving along Bridge Road during these hours for the same reason.
  • Book your rental car in Welwyn Garden City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Welwyn Garden City are around 48% cheaper than other car types, on average
