Top tips for hiring a car in Bristol

  • Discover everything Bristol has to offer with a hire car for your time in England’s harbor city. Nestled along the River Avon, the city has a stunning harbor to explore, as well as many other great attractions like the Bristol Aquarium and Ashton Gate Stadium, where people can enjoy a football game. Of course, there is also the surrounding beautiful English countryside just waiting to be discovered (preferably by car).
  • Another good reason to rent a car upon arrival, is the fact that Bristol Airport is a 40-minute car ride from the city center. Start your journey conveniently by picking up a car directly from the airport and traveling straight into the city. The airport features renowned car hire companies like Sixt, Europcar, or Avis, which are all located close to the terminal building (simply follow the signs to your respective hire desk).
  • In the UK, cars drive on the left side of the road and many have manual transmission, so bear that in mind and prepare accordingly. For travelers not used to driving on the other side of the road, it is recommended to rent a satnav with the car, as it will help show which direction to go. Following the drivers ahead of you can also help, especially when entering a roundabout (remember to go clockwise) or intersection.
  • During rush hour, Bristol’s streets can be congested, so try to avoid going out between 7 and 9 am and 5-8 pm, if possible. The M32 is an important highway in and around Bristol that can be heavily congested during rush hours. Also pay attention to speed limit signs (on the left side of the road), as speed limits change quite often inside the city from 20 mph zones to 30 mph, for instance.
