KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Holyhead

  • Using a car rental in Holyhead has several advantages to relying on public transportation options like trains and buses. Unlike public options with fixed schedules and routes, Holyhead car rentals offer more flexibility. You get to plan your own travel time and pick your preferred route. Rental cars offer much more privacy, unlike public transportation options that sometimes get crowded. Additionally, rental cars can help you easily and conveniently get to locations where public transportation options like buses are not allowed. You can easily visit Holyhead Maritime Museum or South Stack Cliffs RSOB Reserve with a rental car.
  • When flying to Holyhead, You will likely land at Blackpool Airport (BLK). Consider renting a car at the airport than traveling to car rentals in Holyhead city center. Several international and local car rental agencies offer onsite services at the airport. Avis, Hertz, Enterprise, Budget, and Sixt are some of the rental agencies you will find at the airport. They have rental counters directly opposite the Arrivals Hall, where you can easily walk on landing.
  • Driving in Holyhead is generally hassle-free. Here are a few tips to consider before taking a car from Holyhead car rentals to the roads. First, driving in Holyhead is usually on the left-hand side of the road. The town receives rain and a few storms throughout the year, which tend to reduce visibility. Therefore, we recommend driving at a comfortable speed, provided it's not too slow to disrupt normal traffic flow. The city also has a fair share of cyclists and pedestrian activities. So remain alert to avoid running them over at intersections.
  • Driving in Holyhead in the morning and early evening can be difficult due to traffic congestion. The morning rush hour is usually from 7 am to 9 am, while the evening rush hour is from around 5 pm to 7 pm. The good news is that several roads see little to no traffic jams during these hours. Particularly avoid driving in the downtown area during these hours as it sees heavy traffic.
  • Book your rental car in Holyhead at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Holyhead are around 24% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Car was very clean and they were able to accommodate my last-minute change in pick-up date.

Cons:

Their on-site office at the Holyhead ferry port, with very clearly posted opening-closing hours, apparently means nothing as they only are open when they expect a customer arriving to get a vehicle. If that is the case then that is fine, but the stated business hours they are open MUST be modified to reflect that fact. I added one day to my rental and also purchased the pre-pay fuel, so I knew my final bill would be about GBP 90 more than I was originally quoted. It has ended up being nearly GBP 200 more than originally quoted and I have no idea why. Will be contacting Hertz about this but this unexpected increase is not good.

Hayley at Hollyhead was an excellent agent and good humored, too. She fixed everything about our slightly off reservation and made our experience better for it all. We were very impressed with her, with Hertz, and with our car!
