KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Southport

  • A Southport car hire offers several advantages when visiting this charming coastal town. Firstly, it offers the freedom to explore Southport and its surrounding areas at your own pace. Easily visit attractions like the beautiful Formby Beach or explore the scenic countryside of the nearby Ribble Valley. Additionally, having a car allows you to conveniently access the Royal Birkdale Golf Club, famous for hosting the Open Championship. Enjoy the flexibility and convenience of car hire in Southport to make the most of your visit.
  • If you're arriving in Southport by air, there are multiple major airports serving the area. The closest airport is Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LPL), which is located approximately 22 miles away. At Liverpool Airport, you can find car hire offices conveniently located in the terminal buildings. At Manchester Airport (MAN), the car hire offices are situated in the dedicated Car Rental Village, which can be reached via a free shuttle bus service. Pre-book your car hire in Southport to ensure availability. Hiring a car at the airport is one of the most convenient ways to get to the city centre.
  • Driving in Southport requires knowledge of certain factors. Keep in mind that parking spaces in the city centre can be limited and often require payment. Look out for pedestrians, especially in heavily trafficked areas, like Lord Street, as they may step onto the road unexpectedly. Additionally, pay attention to one-way streets and road signs to navigate the city efficiently. It's also advisable to familiarise yourself with the local road rules and regulations before driving in Southport.
  • Southport experiences peak traffic during weekday rush hours, particularly in the morning from 07:30 to 09:30 and from 16:30 to 18:30. During these times, roads like the A565 and A570 can become congested. If visiting during the peak summer season, expect higher volumes of traffic near popular tourist attractions and beach areas. Furthermore, severe winter weather conditions, such as heavy snowfall, can make driving challenging on less frequently maintained rural roads. Exercise caution and consider local weather advisories during the winter months.

THERE WAS NO CAR, although my booking was confirmed. And I was left stranded on Xmas eve and had to pay over a hundred pounds in taxi fees to get to my destination. The worst experience I have ever had with a car rental
