Location information for Sheffield

Car hire in Sheffield

Sports enthusiasts and culture buffs have traditionally flocked to Sheffield, as it has a number of top-flight football teams and around 1,000 heritage buildings. There is also a great selection of fascinating museums, some of which are themed around the city's industrial heritage. Exploring this region of central England is easy using a self-drive car. All the leading international vehicle suppliers maintain offices here, but tourists should compare cheap car hire in Sheffield for the best rates.

Why visit

The Weston Park Museum, close to Sheffield's town centre, boasts collections of archaeology exhibits, while the Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is a more modern heritage centre with historic workshops and equipment. Two football teams and one rugby team have home grounds here, and the Crucible Theatre in the city centre hosts the annual World Snooker Championships. West Street is at the heart of a vibrant leisure district, boasting lots of pubs, restaurants and clubs.

Transport

Sheffield is the crossover point for most of the nearby rail and road networks. One of the UK's principal motorways, the M1, passes east of the city. There are also lots of A-class roads that are great for those who have booked Sheffield car hire. Several bus companies run routes to outlying suburbs, but services farther afield are sporadic. The rail station has direct trains from London's St Pancras Station, while Doncaster-Sheffield Airport, the principal gateway for people flying to South Yorkshire, is 20 miles from the city.

What to see and do

The western outskirts of Sheffield sit next to the fabulous vistas of the Peak District. Using car rental in Sheffield is easily the best option for reaching famous draws that include the Chatsworth House stately home and the spa towns of Buxton and Matlock. The Blue John cavern is near the fairytale-like Castleton village, where Peveril Castle stands, attracting millions of visitors every year. South of Sheffield, the crooked spire of St Mary's Church in Chesterfield is the English equivalent of the Tower of Pisa.

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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
