Luton is situated on the edge of The Chilterns and has one of the country's most multi-cultural and vibrant communities. Historically, the town was famed for its thriving hat making industry, but today, visitors are more likely to buy their new hats from The Mall shopping centre. The town also has several pretty, landscaped parks as well as museums and excellent entertainment and leisure facilities. Our branch for car hire in Luton is located at the airport, making it particularly convenient for those arriving by plane. Hiring a car in Luton is the best way to see everything the town has to offer.
Every year Luton holds Britain's biggest one day carnival. The carnival is an international event that usually takes place over the late May bank holiday Monday. The procession begins at the Wardown Park and then takes a circular route around the town centre and St George's Square before returning back to the park. If that all sounds too energetic, why not visit St. Mary's Church to see one of the best examples of a double arch stone screen in all of Europe. Or, if you rent a car in Luton, you could take a drive and discover more of East Anglia.
Hiring a car in Luton is a must if you are planning on taking the family down to the popular ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. Take the M1 to Junction 9 and then it's only a few miles further along the A5 to your destination, where you will find lions, tigers, giraffes, elephants, penguins and plenty more besides. The Stockwood Discovery Centre is a great value day out with a wealth of fun things for all the family. There are beautiful gardens, where artist Ian Hamilton Finlay's work is on permanent display and their gallery areas focus on telling the stories of the real life people behind the collections.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
