Top tips for hiring a car in Lake District National Park

  • Enjoy cruising around the Lake District at your leisure with a car hire that lets you take in the stunning scenery. With the roads in the region being very good, you will only need a two-wheel drive for the majority of terrain that you encounter. If you plan to go off-road, then you may benefit from a 4X4, especially during the wetter months when you are likely to need more horsepower. If you are planning to spend more time in the urban areas, such as Carlisle, then you might prefer a smaller car, to help you find parking easier.
  • When you are driving in the Lake District, it is important that you follow the highway code to not get in trouble with the authorities. Every person who is in the car must wear a seat belt or risk being fined. It is also the driver’s responsibility to make sure any children in the car that are either younger than 12 or shorter than 135 cm are in a suitable child seat. Drink driving is considered a very serious offence too, with the legal limit being 0.8 mg of alcohol per ml of blood. Anything above this, you will be prosecuted accordingly. You are also only allowed to use your mobile phone if you have a suitable hands-free kit.
  • Help do your bit for the environment when you get your hired car by choosing an eco-friendly vehicle. With hybrids running on both petrol and electricity, you will produce fewer carbon emissions when you drive compared to that of a normal car. There are also lots of electric charging points in the more urban parts of the region, so you will be able to ensure that you have a full charge. In addition, should you need to top up your petrol tank, you will find it easy to locate petrol stations in the built-up areas too.
