Top tips for renting a car in Manchester

  • Although Manchester offers a fairly good public transportation system, you can avoid the crowds by renting a car. It is the most comfortable way to go around the city, particularly in the winter months when it is often raining there. Hop in the car for a scenic drive along Oxford Road with its many museums and theaters, or to head to neighboring Liverpool, which is only one hour away. Make the most of your rental car by exploring the countryside of Northern England, with the unmissable Lake District being just an hour and a half ride from Manchester.
  • The big car rental agencies can be found at Manchester International Airport (MAN), which is located 8.6 miles from the city. Most of the car rental counters are set in the Car Rental Village, which can be accessed by the free shuttle buses departing from all terminals every 10 minutes or so. Tourists will only need their domestic driver's license to rent a vehicle in the UK.
  • When driving in the United Kingdom, remember that traffic stays on the left side of the road. As with any big city, roads can get a bit congested in the city center, so you may want to avoid the stress of driving in that area by leaving the car at your hotel or in one of the many parking lots before heading there. Because of the constant rainy weather, make sure you take extra precautions when driving in the city.
  • Although traffic isn't horrible in Manchester, make sure you avoid the typical rush hours so you don't add extra time to your travels. Morning rush hour is usually between 7 and 9:30 a.m., while evening rush hour normally between 4 and 6:30 p.m. Visiting Manchester in the summer months (between June and August) will contribute to a smoother driving experience because of the nicer weather.

  • For travelers who don't require much space, a small, compact car is ideal for driving and parking around Manchester. But if you're planning a road trip to the countryside, a sedan might be a better option — especially if you're traveling with the whole family, as it offers enough space for everyone.

  • The speed limit in the city is typically 30 miles per hour (mph), but it may be lower in certain residential areas, in which case the speed limit signs will be posted. The speed limit in single carriageway highways is 60 mph, while dual carriageways and motorways have a speed limit of 70 mph.

  • The average gas prices in Manchester are approximately £4.67 (around $5.96) per gallon. You can find lower prices of around £4.43 ($5.65) per gallon, and the higher prices are usually £5.03 ($6.42) per gallon. However, don't forget that gas in the UK is known as petrol and that it is priced by the liter and not the gallon.

  • Street parking is the best option for short-term stays, and it is usually free after 6 p.m., Monday to Saturday, and all day on Sundays — except in the city center, where parking restrictions mean you have to pay for parking between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday to Sunday. Street parking prices range between £1 and £3 per hour. The best option is to leave your vehicle in one of the many parking lots or garages around the city, usually located near metro stations.
