Top tips for hiring a car in Lancashire

  • Before you drive your hired vehicle away from your chosen location in Lancashire, you will usually have to show a number of documents before your car hire is complete. Drivers will always have to show proof that they hold a full and valid driving licence. In addition, a driver must also show proof of legitimate identification. Common and appropriate identification includes the use of a passport. Other companies might also request a second proof of address; examples such as bank cards, utility bills, among others, are sufficient.
  • Those who are visiting Lancashire with the intention of heading out drinking should be extra careful that they don’t exceed the drink-drive limit. The law currently states that the limit is around four units for a standard male. This averages at approximately two pints of normal strength beer. Whereas for women, the limit stands at about three units, which is the equivalent of slightly more than one pint of normal strength beer or a large singular glass of regular strength wine. Although this is the legal limit of alcohol consumption to operate a motor vehicle, there are also a lot of other factors that come into account that may affect the result. Drivers should always drive responsibly and never drink and drive.
  • Lancashire is gifted with lots of locations that those looking to hire a car can rely on. Located across Lancashire, the most common businesses for car hire include Blackburn (specifically near Blackburn Railway Station) and Preston (specifically around Preston Railway Station), as well as others. Make sure you pick an appropriate location for your car hire that’s easy to access, as you will commonly find that car providers request that you return the hire vehicle to the same location.

    Driving in Lancashire is fairly laid back and simple, and the straight and well-surfaced roads mean that driving in most kinds of vehicles is made easy. Drivers in Lancashire will always have a vehicle that is right-hand drive, meaning that you drive on the left-hand side of the road. Make sure to always give way to the right at roundabouts. Lancashire, as well as the rest of the UK, is usually no stranger to a bit of rain, and when this occurs, drivers should make sure to leave an appropriate amount of stopping distance between themselves and other vehicles.
