KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Darlington

  • Car hire in Darlington is a fantastic way to get around this large north-eastern market town in the heart of County Durham, England. Meandering the streets of urban or residential Darlington is an easy task as the roads are even, decent-sized and in great condition. See the sights with your Darlington car hire, such as the majestic Raby Castle, a 24-minute drive from the town centre. ​​​​Car hire in Darlington can also take you out to the Ulnaby Medieval village ruins to see what people lived like in the 1200s. Known for its railway history, Darlington's Railway Museum or the magnificent David Mach train sculpture are both must-sees and both within driving distance from the town centre.
  • When you arrive in Darlington by air you will most likely land at Durham Tees Valley Airport (MME), just a 13-minute drive from central Darlington. With most car hire companies servicing the airport, you can collect your vehicle from Avis, Budget, Alamo, Hertz, Sixt and several others. Your Darlington car hire can be conveniently collected just a 2-minute walk across from the Arrivals terminal at the airport.
  • Darlington town centre underwent a pedestrianisation of the central region, giving priority to pedestrians on all roads in the town centre. This means that traffic for the most part is restricted from driving in the town centre. This is good news for drivers, as it reduces the possibility of foot traffic and bicycles being in similar travelling proximities. Winter roads in Darlington tend to be wetter than the Summer months due to relatively high rainfall, but for the most part you should be guaranteed a smooth drive on well-maintained roads both in and around the Darlington area.
  • Darlington has seen substantial economic growth, seeing traffic increasing as it brings commuters into the town at regular times of the day. The town is serviced by the A167 as a main motorway, alongside the A68, which later becomes Woodland Road. Look out for congestion during peak hours, namely 7:00-9:00 and 16:00-19:00, respectively.
  • Book your rental car in Darlington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Darlington are around 46% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Darlington

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Darlington?

    Darlington car hire can be tailor-made to suit your personal style and party size, as the roads are both conveniently sized and well-maintained. If you feel like taking in some of the surrounding countryside on a day trip, you could benefit from the space of a 4x4. Urban visitors will be well looked after with an economy compact car, staying light on fuel and being about to find tighter parking spaces in the busier parts of Darlington.

  • What’s the speed limit in Darlington?

    Darlington has a strict policy when it comes to speeding. With a lower-than-average speed limit of 20mph around school regions, ensure you check for traffic signage that may require a sudden reduction in speed when in residential or urban areas. The motorways allow for 60mph on a single carriageway or 70mph on a dual carriageway. Traffic cameras monitor motorways, main roads, and some urban areas so keep your eye on your speedometer and ensure a safe trip for all.

    Darlington has many free parking initiatives around the town, including free parking for up to two hours on most streets and council-run car parks.
