Top tips for hiring a car in Cumbria

  • Cumbria is an excellent choice for a touring holiday by car. It has at its heart the Lake District, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; it is considered to be one of the most beautiful parts of England and has inspired writers, painters and musicians for generations. While it’s a perfect walking destination too, getting to quieter parts of this huge park is much easier by car. This is particularly true if you are travelling with children. The county is mountainous overall, with many rural routes leading up into the hills that will require a car to access properly. Ultimately, the freedom to explore Cumbria at its best is done by car. A larger car, such as an SUV, would be better suited to the rural parts of Cumbria.
  • Driving in Cumbria follows the same rules as the rest of the UK. Children, as with all passengers, need to use seatbelts, and young children need to have a baby seat. It’s best to arrange to have one of these fitted by your car company as an added extra rather than bringing your own. Most companies can supply car seats but do check with your preferred supplier in advance. There will probably be an additional cost.
  • Cumbria borders Scotland but, as it’s the UK, you won’t have to worry about extra costs for crossing borders. All the same, insurance and car hire regulations will apply in Scotland as in England.
  • Petrol stations are largely clustered around the M6 motorway and then in a small number of locations within the Lake District. Make sure to research the area you will be touring in advance to make sure you have access to a petrol station, if need be.
  • Book your rental car in Cumbria at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Cumbria are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average
