10.0 Excellent4 Oct 2016
We picked up the car in York, England and drove to Edinburgh, Scotland followed by a tour of western Scotland on the way to Inverness. We drove the next day to my great grandmother's home town, Aberlour. We decided to drive to Wales instead of taking the train. Now we are in Wales and will leave tomorrow for SW England. We have grown attached to our little car and wish we could adopt it.NOTHING

Dropoff experience much better than pickup experienceThe staff at the Hertz car rental at York train station were friendly and quick. I was out of the office in less than five minutes. I have nothing but good things to say about the Hertz staff in York.Nothing negative about my experience in York.

Top tips for hiring a car in York

  • To make the most of the city and get to see everything, we make it easy and convenient for you to find car hire in York. It’s not a very compact city if you take its suburbs into account, which is another good reason to opt for hiring your own car. Top attractions to visit include the magnificent York Minster cathedral and the city’s medieval walls. Hiring a car will also allow you to visit historic Clifford’s Tower for panoramic views of the city.
  • While York doesn’t have its own airport, York car hire is available at the closest airport that serves the city: Leeds–Bradford Airport, which is roughly 30 miles or a 50-minute drive away. There are plenty of car hire facilities available at the airport, provided by some of the UK’s leading car hire brands, including Avis, Europcar, Hertz and Enterprise. The airport has a dedicated on-site car hire centre to the east of the terminal, and you’ll find all the offices and kiosks there. You won’t need to take a shuttle to get there, as it’s just a short walk from the terminal.
  • Once you’ve sorted out your car hire in York, there are a few things to know about driving in the city and its surrounds. Certain districts in the centre of town have driving restrictions at particular times of day, which is the main thing to be aware of. This means you will have to use one of the six Park & Ride areas in the city. You can park here for free, and then take a bus into the city centre. That said, with the exception of these areas, York is one of the most accessible cities in the UK for drivers.
  • Like most other modern urban areas, York can get very congested during rush hours, with the busiest traffic patterns in Yorkshire. These are between 08:00 and 10:00, and again from 16:00 to 19:00. Traffic is normally gridlocked at these times, so we recommend visiting the centre outside of them. The most congested area is the Hopgrove roundabout connecting the A64 to the outer A1237 ring road. It doesn’t snow more than an average of a few days a year, so you won’t have to worry about poor weather conditions.
  • Book your rental car in York at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in York are around 52% cheaper than other car types, on average
