KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Newport

  • Among the requirements for obtaining a hire car in Newport is having a valid driver's licence recognised throughout the UK. If you are a visitor to the city, you will need a driver's licence from your native country that is written in English. An IDP will be required if your licence is not in English. It would be preferable if you were at least 25 years old if you wanted cheap car hire in Newport. However, certain hire agencies could have a 21-year-old minimum age requirement, where those below the age of 25 but above 21 can book a hire car for an extra fee.
  • Newport has plenty of activities that visitors can enjoy exploring at their leisure. Among the popular destinations you can choose to visit while in the city is the Fourteen Locks Canal Centre; it’s located roughly 2.5 miles away from the Newport city centre and will take you only about 7min to reach. Another destination is RSPB Newport Wetlands, which will take a roughly 17min drive to reach, around 6 miles from the town centre. Cheap car hire in Newport makes your journey between destinations shorter than it would have been via other means of public transport, and it also enhances your comfort while travelling.
  • Depending on the Newport car hire agency you select and the kind of vehicle you are booking, you could add extras to your hire car. To assist you in navigating new regions, most car hire businesses offer GPS navigation. If you intend to drive on icy or snowy roads during the winter, consider fitting your Newport hire car with winter tyres. You can also upgrade your vehicle with a roof rack if you need to haul more luggage. Toll passes are another choice, allowing you to use toll roadways without pausing and paying at each toll booth.
  • There are plenty of advantages to choosing car hire in Newport as your way of getting around this bustling city near the Severn River estuary. For a start, there are many outlying attractions that you’d have to get a taxi or book a tour in order to see. With your own car you can simply drive to them whenever you feel like it. Among these sights are the Caerleon Roman Fortress and Baths, requiring a short drive out from the city, the West Usk Lighthouse built in 1821 on the Severn estuary itself and Celtic Manor Resort, which has a world-class golf course that has hosted the Ryder Cup.
  • The closest airport to fly to and pick up your Newport car hire is Bristol Airport, some 19 miles away. Here you’ll discover a very modern Car Rental Centre with prominent signs in the arrivals hall to point the way there. Avis, Budget, Hertz, Sixt and more have their offices there. The airport runs a free shuttle bus from the terminal building to this centre, which is right next to the Silver Zone Car Park. You then take the M4 and cross the River Usk to get to Newport.
  • Newport, despite being something of a coastal resort, is one of the busiest commercial centres in Wales. The traffic can become really congested, and if you’re not used to city traffic, be prepared for that aspect. This is also a student town, as the University of South Wales is located in the city, so there are plenty of pedestrians and students riding bicycles that you should watch out for.
  • You should try and avoid the city centre during the rush hours in Newport, as the city has a bit of a reputation for high density of traffic. These can last from 07:00 to 09:00, with most of the gridlock happening at around 08:00. The evening rush hour can start as early as 15:30, particularly on Fridays, and usually lasts until around 18:00, peaking between 17:00 and 18:00. The A470 comes to a virtual standstill at these times: you can find yourself moving at an average speed of only 7mph on this road. There is also always a bottleneck at Brynglas Tunnel that affects the M4 where it connects to Newport.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Newport for £23 or less
  • Book your car hire in Newport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Newport are around 17% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about car hire in Newport

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

    When you’re looking for the right car hire in Newport, and you’re staying in or intending to spend a lot of time in the city centre, then the traffic dictates that you choose the most easily manoeuvrable. A city car will be your stalwart here, particularly if you’re travelling alone or as a couple. Otherwise hire a compact style of saloon or, at most, a smaller MPV. If you'd prefer to visit the tourist attractions outside the city centre, then book a hotel further out and hire something more spacious, like a saloon or a larger SUV.

Speed limit enforcement is a combination of cameras and sensors that flash your current speed as you pass them.

Very nice car. Probably shouldn’t have had a station wagon for driving around Cornwall. But the car was comfortable and the extra room was great. Pick up and drop off were very timely. Which is good when hurrying to catch a flight.

Car hire insurance in Newport

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Newport 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 Newport.

Deductible
