Top tips for renting a car in Wales

  • When hiring a car in Wales, keep in mind that the landscape is largely flat with some gently undulating hills to the north and west. As a result, a two-wheel drive vehicle may easily navigate these areas. However, if you intend to drive your leased automobile in the southern portion of Wales, you will most likely need four-wheel drive. This is because the topography in this area is mostly mountainous. As a result, 4x4 vehicles with high ground clearance will be perfect for renting here.
  • With your Wales car rentals, you may easily cross the border. Most automobile rental companies in the region, including Thrifty, Dollar Avis, and Hertz, enable their customers to cross the border into England and back. However, if you intend to cross the border in a rented car, you must notify your car rental company ahead of time. The majority of car rentals in Wales charge an additional fee for crossing the border.
  • If you are driving your rental car in Wales with your child(ren), keep in mind that all babies in private cars, including car rentals, must be in child seats. As a result, while making a reservation or picking up your automobile, make sure to request a kid seat from your car rental service provider. The majority of Wales car rentals impose a daily cost for kid seats, baby seats, or booster seats.
  • On weekends and public holidays like as Labor Day, most car rental pick-up locations in Wales see a large increase in the number of clients seeking vehicle rental services. If you want to pick up your automobile on such a day, keep in mind that you will most likely spend more time than usual due to the long lines. You will save a lot of time if you reserve your car online before you arrive at the pickup place. Additionally, reserving your car online helps you to ensure you don’t miss on your preferred car type at the given car pickup location.
