Was tired and did not want to argue any more. Definitely as taken advantage of. I even heard the girl who checked me out and her coworker joking about how the other check out person had screwed the prior customer. Pyle not recommend sixt ever.

Top tips for hiring a car in Leeds

  • Leeds, like much of England, is best navigated via personal vehicle. It is, in fact, the largest city in England to lack both light rail and a metro system. This means that visitors must rely on a slow bus system that often has limited service in the evening. As a result, it is highly recommended that tourists rent a vehicle during their time in the city as it will offer them the most freedom and the easiest way of getting around.
  • Looking forward to beginning your trip in Leeds? Start your trip with a quick stop to pick up your hire car. For travelers with flights landing at Leeds Bradford Airport, the hire car desks are located in the airport’s hire Car Center. To reach the hire center from the airport, travelers can hop on one of the 24/7 shuttles that stop just outside the main exit of the airport.
  • An important law to remember when driving in Leeds is that it is illegal to use a cell phone while driving, including cell phones being used as a navigational device. You may not even use your cell phone when you are stopped at a traffic light. So make sure to have your passenger do all of the navigation during your time in Leeds.
  • Like many cities, Leeds experiences its fair share of rush hour traffic. In general, drivers can expect the morning rush hour to last from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and for it pick back up again around 4:00 p.m. and finish up around 6:00 p.m. M62 is one of the main roads to avoid during rush hour, but aside from that drivers don’t have too much to worry about.
