KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Oldham

  • Oldham, just outside Manchester, is a town where it will really pay off to hire a car to get around. You’ll be able to head out into some glorious countryside. The Dovestone Reservoir and Tandle Hill County Park are tranquil places to relax, or take a drive out to Little Owl Farm. On the way back into Oldham, you can also stop at Lancaster Park and Animal Farm. Car hire in Oldham will also allow you to explore the attractions in the centre of town, like Alexandra Park and The Weavers Factory.
  • To reach Oldham by air, you’ll land at Manchester Airport (MAN). The town is within the Greater Manchester area, so it’s only about 14 miles away. When you arrive at the airport, you’ll easily be able to find your hire car – all the car hire companies are located in the Car Rental Village. To get there, you can just hop on one of the free airport shuttle buses that depart every 10min from just outside each terminal. Once your Oldham car hire is sorted, it’s about a 25-minute drive into Oldham via the M60.
  • Driving in Oldham can present a few challenges if you’re not familiar with the roads. Some of the road markings are a little hard to see, so drive a bit slower when you’re nearing your destination to make sure you don’t take a wrong turn. You should also watch out for a few potholes along some of the busy streets, like Hollins Road. You won’t see many cyclists about and pedestrian traffic isn’t too dense either.
  • Peak rush hour in the morning is between 08:00 and 09:00. At this time, you should try to avoid the A672 southbound through the town. The same applies in the evening rush hour, which can last from 16:00 to 19:00 on a particularly congested day. The average traffic speed here slows to around 13mph. Try and avoid the areas around schools in the morning, like Oldham Hulme Grammar School in Chamber Road.

FAQs about car hire in Oldham

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

    You can easily decide on your choice of car hire in Oldham depending on whether you are staying in the city centre itself and expect to have to negotiate the traffic. In that case, you should definitely opt for the models with the best fuel economy, like a compact city car or, at the largest, a saloon for business purposes. On the other hand, if you want to visit the tourist attractions outside of town, you can get a larger saloon, an MPV or a 4x4.

  • What’s the speed limit in Oldham?

    Oldham adheres to the national speed limits throughout the city, therefore in the centre of town, you need to stick to no more than 30mph. On the main arterials through the city, this is raised to 40mph, and then once you get onto the single carriageway, roads you can increase your speed to 60mph. On the motorways out of town to get to the outlying spots, you can travel at 70mph. Be aware, though, that like many other cities in the UK, 20mph zones are being introduced in residential areas by the city council, so keep a sharp eye out for the signposts and the active cameras.

  • Where are the best places to park in Oldham?

    You can still park for free for up to 3h in central Oldham in one of the many council-owned car parks, like the one at the Civic Centre and those on Waterloo and Southgate Streets. You also have free street parking for 30min every day of the week.
