KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in York

  • If you are still on the fence about car hire in York, you will find they do have adequate public transport in the centre of York itself, but just outside of it is the scenic countryside and different styles of architecture to admire, which is best viewed on your own time in your own car. You also don't have to drive too far when you get out of town to see neighbouring villages, which you can stay in overnight if you find you can't get enough of it.
  • Manchester Airport (MAN) has a range of different car hire in York companies that operate just outside the airport. To find them, you are looking for the sign that says ‘car hire village’, and they are easily located if you keep left after coming through arrivals. The cars are not kept close to the terminal, but once you reach the car hire village sign, a free shuttle service will take you to your hire vehicle, which is around 10min away. You can also arrange for the car to be delivered to the terminal at no extra cost.
  • Roundabouts can be tricky in a car hire in York, but you just have to remember to give way to the right at all times, as some people will not indicate. At pedestrian crossings, you need to be aware of people who may be waiting to cross and be prepared to slow down and stop. Road users drive on the left-hand side in the UK, and the roads are well maintained and easy to drive on.
  • In a York car hire, you need to be wary of pedestrians, as they can cross at any time. Outside of york and in the countryside, you need to be cautious of animals such as horses and also slow moving tractors or farm machinery moving livestock. Country roads usually have some potholes, so just keep an eye out for them. Just be aware that you are allowed to do a U-turn or a 3-point turn on any road, even the expressway. Also be cautious with honking the horn, as there are certain times (such as between 11.30 and 19.00) that you will be fined for using it.

Pros:

We picked up the car in York, England and drove to Edinburgh, Scotland followed by a tour of western Scotland on the way to Inverness. We drove the next day to my great grandmother's home town, Aberlour. We decided to drive to Wales instead of taking the train. Now we are in Wales and will leave tomorrow for SW England. We have grown attached to our little car and wish we could adopt it.

The personal service on pick up and drop off. The gentleman who did the practical hand over was the most helpful I’ve had in years of experience in hiring cars. Cheerful, helpful and just a pleasure.
