Car hire in Manchester

The unofficial capital of the north, Manchester is a massive city famous for its music and sports. Situated midway between Liverpool and Leeds, the city is well served by many major motorways, making it easy to tour with self-drive. There are a number of internationally acclaimed car rental companies in town, so compare cheap car hire in Manchester here to get the best quotes online.

Why to visit

Greater Manchester is one of Britain's most exciting areas, with the city fast-becoming as popular as London. It is a cutting edge metropolis, home to cosmopolitan areas, historical landmarks and cultural attractions, not to mention one of the world's most famous football clubs. Mancunians are extremely liberal and tolerant and enjoy helping visitors find their way, making this a great place for a self-drive tour. Driving is the ideal way to get around town, and a vehicle is also useful for discovering areas outside the centre.

Transport

Manchester Airport is one of the largest in the UK and can be reached in under an hour's drive from the city centre. While the city can easily be explored by bus, tram, taxi or on foot, it is advisable to organise car rental in Manchester if you want to to visit attractions outside of the centre. This will enable you to tour the nearby and exciting cities of Leeds and Liverpool, as well as the pretty city of Chester.

What to see and do

After arranging Manchester car hire, you can take a trip 20 miles east to the magnificent Peak District. This picturesque area is a haven for all nature lovers, as it is home to many rare flora species and boasts some stunning landscapes. A 30-minute drive northeast will bring you to the lovely Victorian town of Huddersfield, while the same distance northwest will bring you to Preston, famous for its old northern culture.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is CompareCarHire.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
