Top tips for renting a car in Darlington

  • Car hire in Darlington is a fantastic way to get around this large north-eastern market town in the heart of County Durham, England. Meandering the streets of urban or residential Darlington is an easy task as the roads are even, decent-sized and in great condition. See the sights with your Darlington car hire, such as the majestic Raby Castle, a 24-minute drive from the town centre. ​​​​Car hire in Darlington can also take you out to the Ulnaby Medieval village ruins to see what people lived like in the 1200s. Known for its railway history, Darlington's Railway Museum or the magnificent David Mach train sculpture are both must-sees and both within driving distance from the town centre.
  • When you arrive in Darlington by air you will most likely land at Durham Tees Valley Airport (MME), just a 13-minute drive from central Darlington. With most car hire companies servicing the airport, you can collect your vehicle from Avis, Budget, Alamo, Hertz, Sixt and several others. Your Darlington car hire can be conveniently collected just a 2-minute walk across from the Arrivals terminal at the airport. 
  • Darlington town centre underwent a pedestrianisation of the central region, giving priority to pedestrians on all roads in the town centre. This means that traffic for the most part is restricted from driving in the town centre. This is good news for drivers, as it reduces the possibility of foot traffic and bicycles being in similar travelling proximities. Winter roads in Darlington tend to be wetter than the Summer months due to relatively high rainfall, but for the most part you should be guaranteed a smooth drive on well-maintained roads both in and around the Darlington area.
  • Darlington has seen substantial economic growth, seeing traffic increasing as it brings commuters into the town at regular times of the day. The town is serviced by the A167 as a main motorway, alongside the A68, which later becomes Woodland Road. Look out for congestion during peak hours, namely 7:00-9:00 and 16:00-19:00, respectively.
