Thrifty Car Hire Stansted Airport

Stansted Airport is located just outside the village of Stansted Mountfichet, in the Uttlesford District of the English county of Essex, about 30 miles (48 km) north-east of London. The Airport is the third busiest passenger airport in the UK, and currently serves over 22 million passengers a year with flights to over 145 destinations in 32 countries.

Stansted Mountfichet dates back to Saxon times. Use your car hire to explore the village and learn more about its history. During the Norman invasion of Britain, a baron called Mountfichet settled in the village and in 1066 began constructing a castle. Remnants of his castle are still visible today around which a reconstruction of an early Norman castle has been built.

The village is also home to the House on the Hill Toy Museum, which is the largest toy museum in Europe. Located next to the castle, it holds over 80,000 toys, mostly from the 1950s to the 1980s. A must see for both children and adults alike.

Stansted is on the main A11 road linking London and Cambridge. Cambridge is a beautiful University town with many examples of Gothic architecture. It is a perfect place to drive to in your comfortable car hire. As well as the University colleges, there are several museums in the city. After a busy day's sightseeing treat yourself to a meal at one of the many reasonably priced restaurants or bars in the city.

If you're flying into Stansted for a business or pleasure trip in England's capital city, London, a car hire from Thrifty Car Rental is the obvious choice for your transportation. With a wide range of vehicles to choose from, you will receive first class service at an affordable price.
