KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Macclesfield

  • When you arrange a car hire in Macclesfield, you’re not only giving yourself the freedom to explore this pleasant Cheshire town on your own terms - all of its surrounding areas are easily accessible too. Learn about the town’s textile history at the Macclesfield Silk Museum and stroll through charming country parks like Tegg’s Nose and Riverside. Venture further afield and discover Waulkmill Waterfall or the scenic views of Kerridge Ridge. The hustle and bustle of Manchester is just a 50min drive away and the Peak District National Park is on your doorstep. Visit traditional towns and villages like Buxton and Bakewell in as little as 40min and sample the local delicacies.
  • Manchester International Airport is situated roughly 12 miles away from Macclesfield and hosts a wide selection of car hire firms to choose from. Find the likes of Avis, Enterprise, Sixt and more at the ‘Car Rental Village’, which you can reach via a free shuttle bus running every 10min from each terminal. They’ll have you on the road in your Macclesfield car hire in no time. Exit the airport and take the A555 to Poynton, then the A523 down to Macclesfield. The journey takes around 25min.
  • The roads and streets in Macclesfield town centre can be cobbled, narrow and particularly steep. There are also single lane one-way systems, so you may find adding a sat-nav to your car hire in Macclesfield useful if you’re not familiar with the area. On busy periods, like Saturday mornings, lots of pedestrians may be around, so pay attention for people crossing the road without warning. Residential streets can be lined with parked cars on either side. Avoid minor bumps and scrapes by being extra cautious on these kinds of roads.
  • Being so close to Manchester and the airport, Macclesfield and its surrounding roads are liable to heavy congestion and delays. Roads like the A523 and the A538 are single-lane and can be slow moving due to a build-up of traffic, large trucks and farming vehicles. It’s advisable to allow extra time when catching a flight, especially if you’re travelling during rush hour, which tends to be between 07:00-09:00 and 16:30-18:30 Monday-Friday. In the region, heavy rain, snow and fog are common during winter, so it’s important to adjust your speed accordingly when roads are icy, and visibility is not clear.
  • Book your rental car in Macclesfield at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

Great new car and great price.

Cons:

The pickup was at a roundabout in an airport I wasn’t familiar with in the rain after an overnight International flight. It was a disaster.
