Top tips for renting a car in Sheffield

  • Rent a car for your time in Sheffield to combine city exploring with countryside roaming for the ultimate UK experience. Sheffield features many places of interest like museums, galleries, pubs, and much more, plus it lies adjacent to the Peak District National Park, which showcases the English countryside from its best side and is only half an hour away by car.
  • Another good reason to rent a car for your time in Sheffield is because Doncaster Sheffield Airport is over 24 miles from the city, and by picking up a rental car directly from one of their onsite agencies, travelers don’t have to rely on public transport to reach the city. With a car, you can be in Sheffield center in half an hour via the M18, whereas public transport will take well over an hour.
  • Throughout the UK, people drive on the left side of the road and Sheffield is, of course, no exception. For people who are not used to that, a GPS system can help navigate through the city while driving on the “wrong” side of the road. When coming to roundabouts, remember to enter clockwise and pay attention at intersections, as it can be the confusing when the traffic is on the other side.
  • Getting stuck in traffic in Sheffield can cost you more than half an hour, so it is recommended to refrain from hitting the road when commuters rush in and out of the city. In the morning, the city usually clogs up around 7-9 am, and from 5-7 pm in the evenings. Especially the M18 and Penistone Road face severely increased traffic during peak times and should be avoided if possible.

On freeways, drivers can go as fast as 70 mph.

The average liter costs around £1.20 (or $1.53, which translates to $6.12 per US gallon). Make sure to know what kind of gas the rental car needs, as the wrong fuel can do severe damages that may not be covered by the insurance.

Metered parking will cost about £4.00 ($5.09) per two hours and spots can be found all around the center, for instance on Church Street. Parking lots are another option, such as the two on Carver Street which charge around £2.00 ($2.55) per two hours and are also close to the center.
