Top tips for renting a car in Newport

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • You will need to pay quite close attention to the various speed limit zones in Newport, as the maximum allowed speed is restricted to 20mph in certain areas, rather than the standard 30mph that you’ll find in the other urban and suburban areas of the city. The 20mph limit covers large areas of the city, including those that Wharf Road and Usk Road run through. Speed limit enforcement is a combination of cameras and sensors that flash your current speed as you pass them.

  • The average price of petrol in Newport is around £1.17, which is very much on the low end of the price across the UK in general. Fuel prices at Sainsbury’s, Morrison’s and Tesco petrol stations may vary, however, you can find reliable prices at the BP in Stow Hill or the Esso on Chepstow Road.

  • You can find free parking in Newport in the Newport City Council-run car parks, such as those in Coldbath Road, Caerleon, Malpas and on Hollybush Avenue. Others in the city centre will cost a few pounds per hour, like Friars Walk Car Park and Kingsway Car Park.
