There's a huge choice of things to see and do when you get here. Don't miss the strange Grasshopper Clock located at Corpus Christi College on King's Parade and the spectacular King's College Chapel, also on King's Parade. Take a relaxing punt on the sleepy Cam River or take in the Botanic Gardens, which have over 8,000 different plant species. If you love to be scared, ghost tours leave from Mills lane on Saturday nights.

If you arrive by coach, rail or plane and are keen to see more of the sur-rounding area with its many and diverse attractions, there are lots of car rental operators providing cheap car hire in Cambridge. Burghley House, Framlingham Castle, award-winning Banham Zoo and Duxford Imperial War Museum and are just some of the sights to visit.

And after a day of sightseeing, choose from an almost endless range of res-taurants, pubs and bars. Whether it's a Michelin star meal, tea and scones, fast food or simply fish chips you're after, Cambridge and its surrounds have it all.

There's accommodation to meet all budgets too, including hotels, guest houses, self-catering apartments, serviced apartments, campsites and hostels. If you are going to be in Cambridge during July's graduation week be sure you ar-range your accommodation and cheap car hire in Cambridge early.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
