Top Tips for Hiring an SUV in Cardiff

  • If you’re travelling to Cardiff, SUV hire is an ideal transport option for you. Despite being a bustling city, Cardiff is well connected by road to many nearby areas. Rural roads in Wales are often hilly and not always well maintained, making an SUV an ideal option for driving on country tracks. If you hire an SUV in Cardiff, you will have access both to the main roads around the town and many rural areas that smaller car types might struggle to drive on. Perfect if you want to get out of the city and explore your surroundings.
  • Travellers arriving at Cardiff Airport will find plenty of convenient car hire options available at the terminals. If you’re looking for Cardiff SUV hire during your stay, it is a good idea to use the Enterprise car hire branch located at the airport. This way, you can pick up your SUV and get on the road as soon as you arrive.
  • Cardiff is a small city with a relatively low population. Drivers in the city are not faced with much traffic congestion and will find that most roads are only crowded during the weekday rush hour. Hiring an SUV in Cardiff is an ideal option as you will generally find space to manoeuvre and park, even while driving in the city. Roads outside of the city centre also tend to be quiet and are generally wide enough for you to enjoy a bit of extra space with your hire vehicle.
  • If you plan to hire an SUV while in Cardiff, it may be a good idea to avoid driving in the city at certain times. Traffic in the morning and afternoon rush hours, between 7:00 and 9:00 and again from 17:00 to 19:00, may slow down your journey slightly, especially on central routes around Wood Street, St Mary Street roundabout or Callaghan Square. Also, avoid the central shopping district and park your vehicle nearby instead, as the streets in this area can be pretty narrow.
  • 25% of our users found an SUV hire in Cardiff for $73 or less
  • Book your SUV hire in Cardiff at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • January is typically the cheapest month to hire an SUV in Cardiff, with prices around $66 per day. The most expensive month is November, with average prices of $118 per day.

FAQs About Hiring an SUV in Cardiff

  • Where are the best car rental locations in Cardiff to rent an SUV?

    There are several convenient city-centre locations to check out if you are looking for Cardiff SUV hire. One option is to hire your SUV from the Enterprise branch on Tudor Street. This location will put you within easy reach of numerous reasonably-priced Cardiff hotels. An alternative rental location is the Europcar branch on Newport Road, located just a 10min drive from Cardiff Capital Business Park – perfect if you’re hiring a car for work.

  • What is the most reliable SUV brand to rent in Cardiff?

    If you are looking for reliable SUV car hire for your trip to Cardiff, several reputable SUV brands, such as Nissan or Toyota, offer sturdy models with 4x4 capabilities for rural driving alongside comfortably spacious interiors. Nonetheless, these compact SUV designs are also light on fuel usage for SUVs. They are the ideal choice of vehicle if you plan to take drives out of the city and into the Welsh countryside where you may face long stretches without petrol stations. Both brands are available at car hire branches located in and around Cardiff city centre.

  • Where are the best places to park your Cardiff SUV hire?

    Driving in Cardiff city centre, you will find plenty of inexpensive car parks close to nearby attractions, such as the central NPC car parks in Greyfriars Road and Dumfries Place. These car parks are close to Cardiff Castle, the Capitol Shopping Centre, and plenty of places to eat. If you want somewhere slightly quieter, just outside the city centre, you can also try the Mermaid Quay Car Park near the Mount Stuart Graving Docks.

Pros:

Pickup service was excellent. Car great. Mileage very good.

Cons:

Hertz rep explained that because Hertz is the only rental agency at LGW North, the airport authorities will not allow more rental return signage. Follow the specific instruction given by the Sofitel porters in the layby.

Pros:

The gentleman who I gave the car to was very helpful. He helped order me a taxi after and was very nice.

Cons:

There wasn't anywhere to park the car. They didn't have a parking lot or any designated places for returning cars. It was very frustrating. I didn't like that even though I prepaid for a full tank of gas, I didn't get any money back when I returned it more than half full. Felt a little cheated there.
