Car Hire at Doncaster Airport
Doncaster Robin Hood Airport can be reached via both the B1396 and the A638 and is easily accessible from the A1, M1, M62 and M18 motorways. The city centre of Doncaster is just 7 miles or a 15 minutes drive away up the A638.
When renting a car in the UK, especially for the American visitors, you should remember to ask for an automatic transmission if you are more comfortable driving one. UK drivers usually learn to drive a manual transmission and most rental cars are manual. Unless you ask for an automatic when you book your car, you may end up with a stick shift you cannot drive.
On UK motorways the speed limit is usually 70mph, but on country roads it slows down to 40 or 50mph. Once you enter a village the speed limit is never more than 30mph.
There are speed cameras all over UK towns and if you see a yellow sign with a picture of a camera on it, a digital speed camera will be watching you within about 200 yards.
Most towns and villages also now have Pay and Display car parks to prevent congestion on the roads. The cost is usually quite low and you get a parking ticket to display on your dashboard or window.
You can park on streets with single yellow lines after the parking restrictions are lifted (usually after 18:00), but parking on double yellow lines is strictly forbidden at any time.
