Location information for Derby

The old and the new come together in Derby to offer visitors a pleasant English experience without an overtly tourist edge. From allegedly haunted buildings to the charming Cathedral Quarter, there are plenty of activities on offer both indoors and out. Grab car hire in Derby and balance your time between city touring and daytrips into the lovely countryside.

Derby attractions

Derby's Cathedral Quarter is a relaxing little corner of the city filled with cosy cafés, pubs and shops. Just next door is the cool Victorian-era Market Place that still features private stalls selling everything under the sun. A more modern shopping and entertainment experience can be found at Westfield Derby, easily reached with car rental in Derby.

Derby excursions

Just up the road from Derby is the fun town of Matlock Bath, a spa town with seaside-style amusement arcades and tourist shops. The lofty spa town of Buxton is another popular spot on the edge of the Peak District, a protected area loaded with natural attractions and walking paths, all within easy striking distance with car hire in Derby.

Best time to visit

Like most of central England, Derby endures almost year-round bouts of precipitation interspersed with sunny spells. Winter is the gloomiest time, when cold, damp weather hampers most outdoor excursions. Late spring and autumn are cool but pleasant periods, especially the months of April, May, September and October.

Car rental in Derby

Having a car hire in Derby is the best way to get around the city and explore its surrounding areas, especially for those planning to enjoy the Peak District. All of the major UK car hire companies are on site, offering plenty of choice. If you compare car hire deals beforehand online, you can often find lower rates than last-minute bookings.

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).
