The M1 motorway runs north-south, as does the A5 which takes a route into Wales. Birmingham and Leicester are closely linked via the M69, which passes by Hinckley.
The market town dates back to Saxon times and was quite a large populated area for its time back in the 11th century. The market is still well done to this day in the square and attracts many people from the surrounding area.
With a car hire in Hinckley you can head around the town and visit the museum which is housed in an old 17th century row of cottages made mainly from timber; visit the site of the Battle of Bosworth and any of the churches in the surrounding villages.

Frequently asked questions

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.
