Location information for Wales

Car hire in Wales

A trip to Wales offers holidaymakers access to picturesque countryside, some of the finest beaches in Europe and an abundance of historic sites and castles. Wales is not big, so driving from north to south only takes a few hours. Heading south through the majestic mountains of Snowdonia has to rate as one the world's most picturesque car journeys. Renting a vehicle is easy and cheap, especially when tourists compare cheap car hire in Wales with us to get the best deals.

Major airports and ports

Cardiff International Airport is the principal gateway to Wales, with flights from UK domestic locations, including Edinburgh and Newcastle, as well as a busy summer charter airline timetable. Anglesey Airport also serves domestic passenger flights, while ports on the west coast run passenger ferries across the Irish Sea. Anglesey has services from Dublin, while Fishguard and Pembroke Dock both receive ferries from Rosslare.

Transport

Most major towns and resorts in Wales have a train service and there is an adequate bus system to many major urban areas. Bus and train times are not frequent however, and car rental in Wales offers travellers the most convenience, as well as the freedom to go at the driver's own pace. Wales car hire suppliers have service offices in the main Welsh towns and resorts, but it is best to book in advance.

Driving tips

Motorists should carry their driving licenses when on road trips in Wales. The minimum driving age is 17 here, but when renting a car the driver must be over 21 years old. Motorists drive on the left, and all people in the car are required to wear seatbelts. Drivers are barred from using hand-held mobile phones when behind the wheel.

Places to visit

When using car hire in Wales, historic buildings that can easily be reached include the UNESCO listed Caernarfon Castle and Beaumaris Castle on the Isle of Anglesey. Fabulous seaside towns, such as Llandudno and Colwyn Bay, dot the coast of North Wales. The A470 passes through Snowdonia, where mountain hiking trails draw hill walkers from afar.

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). Which car rental companies are compared by CompareCarHire.co.uk? at this location
