Top tips for hiring a car in Manchester

  • The easiest way to see everything in and around Manchester is on your own four wheels, so rent a car for your time in the city to make the most out of your trip. The city offers a wide array of great attractions which are dotted all around the city, so getting to see them all becomes considerably easier when you can create your own itinerary and are not tied to public transport. Visitors may also consider taking a day trip to coastal cities like Portsmouth, which is only 50 minutes by car away.
  • If you land at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, consider renting a car directly from the airport grounds to start your time in Manchester as quickly and smoothly as possible. Follow the signs to the car hire center, where travelers will find a wide array of car hire agencies, such as Enterprise, Hertz, or Avis, to name a few. Via the I-293 S, travelers will be in Manchester in less than a quarter of an hour.
  • Bear in mind that winter can bring lots of snow and sleet to New Hampshire and Manchester is no exception. Prepare yourself for wintery driving conditions when visiting during the cold months, and check if the car is properly equipped with winter tires when renting. Travelers may also want to get extra snow chains in case the weather conditions become severe. When there is snow in Manchester, the roads become narrower due to it being piled up on either side, so adjusting your speed and slowly entering intersections is crucial.
  • Morning rush hour in Manchester peaks between 7 and 8 am, so it is better to avoid it for a hassle-free ride. Evening rush hour usually kicks in at around 5 pm and can last until 8 pm, clogging up the streets -- especially the I-93 and I-293, which is teeming with commuters. On weekends, traffic is usually pleasantly smooth and drivers should face no problems, but still check current traffic conditions before driving just in case.
  • Book your car hire in Manchester at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Manchester?

A 4-wheel drive is definitely a good choice when visiting Manchester, especially during the winter. For people who need more space, a minivan serves as a good choice and will also provide the essential traction needed for icy roads. People who plan to drive mainly inside the city limits should consider a compact car like a smaller SUV, for instance.

Within the city limits, there is a maximum speed limit of 20-30 mph, while 55 mph is permitted on divided highways. On freeways, the speed limit is between 65 and 70 mph, so always check the posted signs to see which limit applies.

How are gas prices in Manchester?

Petrol in Manchester costs approximately $2.50 per gallon. Try to find petrol stations like Budget petrol or 7-Eleven for cheaper offers, often starting at $2.35. Familiarize yourself with the type of petrol your hire car requires, and, if left out overnight during winter, it is recommended to keep the petrol tank at least half full so that the tank pipe doesn’t freeze up.

Where are the best places to park in Manchester?

On-street parking in Manchester is metered; simply check the time restrictions and prices on the designated sign. Usually, there is either a two-hour or ten-hour limit, enforced between 8 am and 8 pm. Alternatively, there are parking lots like the Victoria Parking Garage, which has a daily maximum of about $6, or the Canal Lot.
