KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Bradford

  • There are plenty of places that you can visit after picking up your Bradford car hire vehicle, including the nearby city of Leeds, which is only 10 miles away. It is famous for its Royal Armouries, museums, parks and historic abbeys. If you are looking for an adventure in the countryside then we recommend that you visit the Nidderdale Area of Natural Beauty, which is part of the Yorkshire Dales. It is only 29 miles away, and you can go there to take part in fishing, cycling, hiking, and camping.
  • There are a variety of extra options available when collecting your cheap car hire in Bradford, which can really make your driving experience that much better. Some accessories that we recommend are the GPS, or navigation tools that are available in certain cars, and can be added to help you find your way around Bradford and the surrounding areas. You may also want to register an extra driver so you can take turns driving, or if you are travelling with small children, you can ask for a variety of baby seats to be included in the package to make sure that the little ones are kept safe.
  • If you plan on picking up your cheap car hire in Bradford, then you will need to be at least 20 years old for most rental companies. Generally, there is a surcharge for drivers that are under the age of 25, due to increased insurance prices. If you are younger than 25 years old then the rental company may also reduce your access to some of the higher-level rental vehicles, such as luxury vehicles, 4x4s, or SUVs. You will need to have held your licence for at least 12 months when hiring a car. You will need to show a valid driving licence and pay with a credit card in most car hire companies.
  • There are plenty of good reasons to opt for car hire in Bradford rather than relying on public transport. Chief among them are the flexibility and independence you’ll gain to explore the city on your own schedule. You can drive out on a whim to visit Ilkley, the oldest historical site in the area. The wonderful 17th-century manor house of East Riddlesden Hall is close by too, as is Cartwright Hall. You can also take a short drive to one of the oldest buildings in the city, Bolling Hall, which dates all the way back to the 14th century.
  • Getting to Bradford by air means you will land at Leeds–Bradford Airport. It’s about 6.5 miles away from the town, so it won’t take you long to get there. You can collect your Bradford car hire right at the airport. Book your choice of vehicle from a range of well-known brands through KAYAK and then, when you arrive, head to the car hire centre. You will find it on the east side of the main terminal building, only a short walk away from Arrivals. Once there, simply look for the signage of the brand you’ve booked, be it Avis, Europcar, Hertz or any other you have chosen.
  • You’ll need to be very aware of both vehicle and pedestrian traffic in Bradford. Although it’s not the biggest city in West Yorkshire, it nonetheless requires consideration when you’re driving. Watch out for the traffic on the Leeds Road into Bradford in particular, as there are many smaller side streets that can be obscured. On Midland Road be aware of faster traffic that can sometimes come up behind you without warning.
  • Rush hours have become increasingly busy over the years here, so be aware of the time of day when you are planning to visit the tourist attractions. It’s best to plan activities that don’t involve driving through the city centre around 08:00 and from roughly 16:00 to 17:00. The M62 Westbound in particular can get very busy.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Bradford for £34 or less
  • Book your car hire in Bradford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Bradford are around 39% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about car hire in Bradford

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Bradford?

    As with so many smaller cities in the UK, it’s recommended to opt for the most compact and fuel-efficient city models if you intend to stay in or explore the centre of town. Bradford has a busy business district, so if you’re visiting for these purposes then you may want to upgrade to a sedan, but try to keep it as small as you can. The surrounding areas of Bradford are easy to get around, so if you want to explore more of the Leeds area then you can book a wide variety of different vehicles, including MPVs, sedans, luxury models and 4x4s, which are very appropriate choices.

  • What’s the speed limit in Bradford?

    Bradford has joined many UK cities in lowering its speed limit to 20mph in the central areas. Otherwise you can expect the standard 30mph within the broader city itself. Further afield, you can travel up to 70mph on the motorways. Look out for speed cameras in specific areas, such as near schools and particularly where pedestrians and cars mingle. These are signposted shortly in advance, so pay attention when you see the signs.

Car hire insurance in Bradford

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Bradford car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Bradford.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Bradford car hire.
