KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Holyhead

  • Holyhead is a large town in Anglesey County, and it is a major port serving the Irish Sea. As such, it has plenty of things to explore and visit. The benefit of using car hire in Holyhead is that you can explore the area without having to wait for public transport. Not only can you go where you want, but you can go when you want, giving you the freedom that public transport does not offer. By taking your Holyhead car hire, you can visit Trearddur Beach or Parc Arfordiol Penrhos Coastal Park.
  • There is currently only one car hire company listed at Anglesey Airport (VLY), as it’s a rather small terminal. The airport only offers daily flights from a few destinations, and so the demand for car hire in Holyhead falls mostly to Hertz. Their offices are generally open from 08:00 to 17:00 but are closed on the weekends. You can find the Hertz branch inside the main terminal building at Anglesey Airport.
  • Driving in the town of Holyhead is not too complicated, as long as you remember you cannot turn right on a red light, and the priority is given to traffic coming from the right on a roundabout. In the town centre, you may see pedestrians jaywalking, and we urge you to take care, as they may have reduced visibility due to poor weather or the fact that they are wearing hats, scarves or hoods.
  • The weather in Holyhead can sometimes create problems if you are not used to driving in the rain. Due to its location on the west coast of Britain, Holyhead receives a few storms and some rain throughout the year, which can reduce visibility. Rush hour tends to be before regular office hours, such as at around 8:00, and after school, around 17:00. Traffic is usually more congested near the town centre.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Holyhead for £41 or less
  • Book your car hire in Holyhead at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Holyhead are around 64% cheaper than other car types, on average

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

    If you plan on staying in the local area around Holyhead, then you may want to look at a compact or an economy car hire in Holyhead. This is because they will offer you greater ease when navigating the tight roads and corners of the coastal town, as well as the fact that they tend to be easier to park on street. If you would like to explore outside the town, then we recommend an SUV, as these vehicles are better prepared for driving on roads that may not be as well kept as the ones in town.

  • What is the speed limit in Holyhead?

    Within the town centre, you will need to follow the speed limit, which is set at 30 kph. There may be zones where it is even slower, due to the location of schools or parks where children play, and if the speed limit changes, it will be signposted. National roads have a 100 kph speed limit, and regional or local roads have an 80 kph speed limit. The speed limit on the motorway, which you may use to travel to other parts of the United Kingdom is 120 kph.

  • What are the best places to park in Holyhead?

    There are a few car parks to choose from where you can leave your car hire in Holyhead, such as the Lower Hill Street Car Park or the Holyhead Car Park. These car parks are both open 24 hours a day and are cheap in comparison to some of the other car parks. You can also find plenty of on-street parking, and there are both free and paid parking zones in the town. You can also find charging points and disabled parking throughout the city, but we recommend that you bring change, as not all of the parking meters accept cards or give change.

Pros:

Car was very clean and they were able to accommodate my last-minute change in pick-up date.

Cons:

Their on-site office at the Holyhead ferry port, with very clearly posted opening-closing hours, apparently means nothing as they only are open when they expect a customer arriving to get a vehicle. If that is the case then that is fine, but the stated business hours they are open MUST be modified to reflect that fact. I added one day to my rental and also purchased the pre-pay fuel, so I knew my final bill would be about GBP 90 more than I was originally quoted. It has ended up being nearly GBP 200 more than originally quoted and I have no idea why. Will be contacting Hertz about this but this unexpected increase is not good.

Hayley at Hollyhead was an excellent agent and good humored, too. She fixed everything about our slightly off reservation and made our experience better for it all. We were very impressed with her, with Hertz, and with our car!

Car hire insurance in Holyhead
