Your choice of car hire in Worcester comes down to your reasons for visiting the city. The heavily congested central areas suggest that you get only as much car as your needs dictate, so that you can save on petrol costs while sitting in traffic, and to give you more agility. A compact city car or saloon will do the trick, and if you’re travelling alone you should consider a really small economy model. If you’re going to be exploring broader Worcestershire in the city’s vicinity, you can happily book an SUV or a larger saloon model. Tour groups can book a minibus or one of the bigger MPV models.
