KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Sheffield

  • If you are planning to hire a car in Sheffield, it is advisable to book in advance to avoid any last-minute hassle. Booking in advance not only guarantees that the car you want will be available, but it can also save you money. Many Sheffield car hire companies offer discounts to those who book early, and you can compare prices and choose the best deal that suits your budget. Booking online is also best if you're picking your car up at the airport. Airport car hire is typically much more costly and you're often limited to fewer choices because of other travellers.
  • It's essential to know the rules of the road in Sheffield before you start driving. Some of the unique driving laws in the UK include driving on the left side of the road, obeying speed limits, and wearing seat belts. Additionally, when driving in Sheffield, keep in mind that the city has a Low Emission Zone, which imposes charges on certain vehicles. Familiarise yourself with these regulations before hitting the road to avoid any fines.
  • Peak District National Park is one of the most sought-after road trips in the area and cheap car hire in Sheffield offers an easy way to explore this gorgeous area, which is only a short trip away. Some of the country's most beautiful natural scenery, charming villages, rolling hills, and picturesque walking trails can be found in the Peak District. Sheffield car hire allows you to explore these beauties on your own steam, stopping where you like, when you like, and taking in all of the park's sights and sounds.
  • Rent a car for your time in Sheffield to combine city exploring with countryside roaming for the ultimate UK experience. Sheffield features many places of interest like museums, galleries, pubs, and much more, plus it lies adjacent to the Peak District National Park, which showcases the English countryside from its best side and is only half an hour away by car.
  • Another good reason to rent a car for your time in Sheffield is because Doncaster Sheffield Airport is over 24 miles from the city, and by picking up a hire car directly from one of their onsite agencies, travelers don’t have to rely on public transport to reach the city. With a car, you can be in Sheffield center in half an hour via the M18, whereas public transport will take well over an hour.
  • Throughout the UK, people drive on the left side of the road and Sheffield is, of course, no exception. For people who are not used to that, a GPS system can help navigate through the city while driving on the “wrong” side of the road. When coming to roundabouts, remember to enter clockwise and pay attention at intersections, as it can be the confusing when the traffic is on the other side.
  • Getting stuck in traffic in Sheffield can cost you more than half an hour, so it is recommended to refrain from hitting the road when commuters rush in and out of the city. In the morning, the city usually clogs up around 7-9 am, and from 5-7 pm in the evenings. Especially the M18 and Penistone Road face severely increased traffic during peak times and should be avoided if possible.

Car hire insurance in Sheffield

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Sheffield 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 Sheffield.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Sheffield car hire.
