Nottingham (United kingdom)

Nottingham is a major university city in central England. The city is famous for the legend of Robin Hood, its two major universities as well as the award-winning and very well-functioning public transport network. The city also is a considerable tourism center and it is regarded as one of England's best shopping cities. Most of the tourists will, however, visit the Sherwood forest and the Nottingham Castle (which is more like a mansion castle). Within the town there is also the largest number of man-made caves in the whole UK and a more than 800 year old pub.

Car Rental

Things which affect the renting of the car:

  • Driver’s license: In the European Union / Schengen a driver's license from an EU country is sufficient, although for North Americans it is recommended to carry a separate international driving license, in addition to the American driving license.
  • Direction of traffic: In Europe the traffic is mainly right-handed. The exception is Great Britain, which is left-handed traffic.
  • Insurance: In Western Europe, all rental cars include some kind of insurance, so additional insurance policies are often unnecessary (unless you are going to Russia or Eastern Europe).
  • Driving abroad: You can drive a rental car almost everywhere within all countries of the European Union / Schengen territory without additional fees. Eastern European countries and Russia are the exceptions and you should always ask the car rental company in advance about the rules.
