Top tips for hiring a car in Bolton

  • After you finalise the itinerary for your trip, make sure you secure a reservation for your car hire in Bolton so you can pick up your vehicle and commence exploring without missing a beat. Leverhulme Park or Queens Park lie within 2 miles of town centre where you can enjoy morning tea before heading out for a lengthy car ride. The coastal resort town of Blackpool has amusements galore and is well worth the 40 mile trek via the M61 and M55 East.
  • Though it lies some 20 miles south-west of Bolton, Manchester Airport is the closest international airport to the town and offers a variety of agencies where you can select a Bolton hire car at affordable rates. National, Europcar and Enterprise are three companies among others from which to choose. A complimentary shuttle bus makes pick-ups from Terminals 1, 2 and 3 every 10min and ferries you to the Car Rental Village where your vehicle awaits.
  • Unless you are familiar with driving around Bolton, it’s recommended that you use a sat nav to make navigation less confusing and avoid running around in circles. Of course, you should always be on the watch for pedestrians and cyclists and avoid bus lanes whenever possible. The ring road encompassing Topp Way/St. Peters Way/A579 and B6205 funnels traffic in and out of the town centre and is liable to be congested during morning/evening rush hour and afternoon lunchtime, so research a couple of alternative routes just in case.
  • Busy thoroughfares like the A575, which runs through the centre of town, should be avoided during the hours of 7:00-9:00 and again at 17:00-20:00 when rush hour congestion is usually at its worst. The 13:00-15:00 period can also be a time of increased vehicular and pedestrian traffic. If you don’t want to get bogged down by football gridlock on Sundays, consider taking the bus or metro to attend Wanderers games at the University of Bolton Stadium.
  • Book your rental car in Bolton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Bolton are around 4% cheaper than other car types, on average
