KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Leeds

  • Leeds, like much of England, is best navigated via personal vehicle. It is, in fact, the largest city in England to lack both light rail and a metro system. This means that visitors must rely on a slow bus system that often has limited service in the evening. As a result, it is highly recommended that tourists rent a vehicle during their time in the city as it will offer them the most freedom and the easiest way of getting around.
  • Looking forward to beginning your trip in Leeds? Start your trip with a quick stop to pick up your hire car. For travelers with flights landing at Leeds Bradford Airport, the hire car desks are located in the airport’s hire Car Center. To reach the hire center from the airport, travelers can hop on one of the 24/7 shuttles that stop just outside the main exit of the airport.
  • An important law to remember when driving in Leeds is that it is illegal to use a cell phone while driving, including cell phones being used as a navigational device. You may not even use your cell phone when you are stopped at a traffic light. So make sure to have your passenger do all of the navigation during your time in Leeds.
  • Like many cities, Leeds experiences its fair share of rush hour traffic. In general, drivers can expect the morning rush hour to last from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and for it pick back up again around 4:00 p.m. and finish up around 6:00 p.m. M62 is one of the main roads to avoid during rush hour, but aside from that drivers don’t have too much to worry about.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Leeds for $34 or less
  • Book your rental car in Leeds at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Leeds are around 13% cheaper than other car types, on average

Excellent customer service, value for money and convenient location. The car was amazing but I found items from the previous renter including keys and there was no window fluid, and the windows were dirty. But my only frustration was no one answered the phone on the two occasions I needed information including extending the rental.

The gentleman was very pleasant. The car hadn't been cleaned properly or washed but we agreed it was ok. There was no parcel shelf in the car which was a bit of a concern when we had luggage etc.

Booked for 16:00, office closes at 16:00! Any delay and employees (still there) won't give you your car; Only option : come tomorrow, we open at eleven. Abandoned on parking with kids and luggage in the rain on a parking lot in the middle of nowhere. And they proposed we get a car from Enterprise Clubcar in the meantime. Registering procedure is manual, was handled the next Monday and declined because we do not live in the UK. Such a bad experience.

The place was little bit strange - like old scrapyard, only with nice new cars. The office was in a construction cell. But everything worked, was very easy and the staff was very nice. Good and quick communication with the staff. Only be carefull - when you book the car through the kayak US page, the price will be without the CDW (Collision Damage Waiver). You will have to pay it at the counter or have your own printed intrnational insurance covering rent car damage - so you won't have that nice price as you find on kayak, even you book en english car in the UK (which is strange and there is no warning about that).

2.0 Poor

When I tried to pick up they demanded that I take their collision damage insurance, even though I had waived that and said that I had it through American Express, AND wanted a £1500 deposit. I offered to purchase another online insurance policy and he said the company would not accept that. The fellow at the counter was very nice but he said it was the company policy and he had no control over it. He said it happened all the time and people were always shocked. I then asked what other renters would do and he said most people just paid it because they didn’t have another option. I refused and had him take me back to the airport. Then I went and rented a car elsewhere. More people need to walk away and not let this and other companies like this run this kind of SCAM. Kayak needs to drop them from their search.
