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.
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.
