KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Middlesbrough

  • If you're planning on using cheap car hire in Middlesbrough, be aware of the town's one-way systems. Some of the town's main roads, like Borough Road and Linthorpe Road, are one-way only, so it's important to plan your route carefully to avoid getting lost. A good way to navigate Middlesbrough's one-way roads is to use a navigation system or GPS, which can help you find quicker and more efficient routes to your destination.
  • When you book cheap car hire in Middlesbrough to explore the surrounding areas, be aware that some of the roads may not be in the best condition, particularly in more rural locations. Be sure to check your route ahead of time and take any necessary precautions, such as driving more slowly or using a high-clearance vehicle. It's also a good idea to bring a map or GPS system with you, as cell phone service may be limited in some areas.
  • When using Middlesbrough car hire, be aware that some of the smaller roads can be quite narrow and winding, particularly in more rural areas. Drive cautiously and be prepared to yield to oncoming traffic if necessary. Additionally, parking in the city centre can be quite difficult, so it may be worth considering using public transport or walking to your destination once you arrive in the city.
  • Middlesbrough is tucked away in North Yorkshire, and although it grew up as an industrial city, it has entered a phase where it has once again become more picturesque. So it’s well worth hiring a car to get around if you’re visiting. You can immediately head outside the city centre and visit places like Roseberry Topping and Ormesby Hall. Then there’s one of the city’s biggest drawcards, the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum. This makes car hire in Middlesbrough a very good choice to give you maximum control over your own time and give you independence so that you’re not relying on local public transport schedules.
  • The airport you’ll arrive at when you’re flying to Middlesbrough is Teesside International Airport (MME), which is roughly 10 miles to the south-west of the city. Upon landing and after baggage claim, simply walk straight out of the terminal and take a 2-minute walk to the car park, where you can pick up the vehicle you’ve booked. It won’t take you long at all to drive the short distance into Middlesbrough itself.
  • Middlesbrough tends to be quite congested, so if you’re on a business trip and you’re travelling to or through the centre of town, then you can expect not only busy traffic, but also plenty of pedestrians. Keep an eye out even when you’re driving at slower speeds, especially where you’re not familiar with the road layouts and where the bicycle lanes and pedestrian crossings are. As in many modern cities, people will cross the road when it looks to be clear.
  • Rush hour in Middlesbrough comes around every day at the times we’re all used to. In the mornings, traffic peaks around 08:00 to 09:00 and swells again from 16:00 to 17:00. This doesn’t mean that it dies down immediately after that though, so steer clear of the busiest streets. Top among these are Acklam Road (the A1032) and Longlands Road (the A1085). Marton Road (the A172) is another road that can become tightly packed, particularly the north-bound lanes.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Middlesbrough for £33 or less
  • Book your car hire in Middlesbrough at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Middlesbrough are around 42% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about car hire in Middlesbrough

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

    Given that so many of the busiest Teesside A roads are in Middlesbrough, it might be a good idea if you’re travelling alone to hire a compact car, or a saloon that’s similarly fuel-efficient if you’re with a couple of other people. For Middlesbrough car hire, you also want a vehicle that you can drive nimbly through the busier sections, especially when you need to respond to unexpected pedestrians. These will also easily take you to the nearby tourist attractions outside the city, as the roads are good and there’s no need to go off-roading to get to the rural ones either.

Car hire insurance in Middlesbrough

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Middlesbrough 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 Middlesbrough.
