Top tips for renting a car in Blackburn

  • The town of Blackburn is a point of convergence for major roadways such as the A677, which leads into the downtown district. One of the best ways to explore this large town and the county of Lancashire is with car hire in Blackburn. Besides being an affordable means of transport for large travelling groups, it is also the most flexible type of transport for roaming the countryside. A daytime trip to Leeds is about 57 miles along the M62, while the seaside resort town of Blackpool is about 26.5 miles west via the M55.
  • Manchester Airport (MAN) is an excellent location from which to get a car hire in Blackburn. A free shuttle stops at all three terminals to ferry passengers to the Car Hire Village. From Terminal 1: the bus stop is just outside the exit on the kerbside; from Terminal 2: the collection point is kerbside near the stop for Airport Car Park Buses and from Terminal 3: upon exiting, take the yellow crossing and turn right. Walk a few metres, and you’ll arrive at the bus stop.
  • Considering the density of its road network and population size, the likelihood of experiencing traffic congestion is high during morning and evening rush hours. The A6119 flowing from the M65 can be troublesome, but the A666 which courses through and around the town centre is a magnet for slowdowns on outbound and inbound journeys. High levels of pedestrian and cycle traffic are normal on weekdays near places of interest and busy retail zones like the Ewood district.
  • Escape the morning rush from 07:00-09:00 by delaying your start or heading off early to avoid any potential problems. If you spend the day driving around the city, weekday afternoons between 13:00 and 15:00 are another busy period where gridlock is possible, particularly around the A6078 roundabout outside Blackburn Arena, which is also a major retail area. The evening rush between 18:00 and 21:00 generally mimics the morning pattern and there is a higher incidence of gridlock due to heavier inbound traffic on all major roadways (M25, A666 and A6119).
