Top tips for hiring a car in North Yorkshire

  • If you’re arranging North Yorkshire car hire, you’ll find more options available to you at various airports in the region. Typically, you’ll get various major car hire agencies at airports, thus more choice, and also better prices. You can find some good options at airports, such as Darlington Teesside Airport (MME), as well as Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) in West Yorkshire, and Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) in South Yorkshire.
  • If you’re looking to hire a vehicle in North Yorkshire and are travelling as a family, you’ll need to be wary of the child seat laws for young children. The law requires that children must use an appropriate child restraint until they reach either 135 cm in height or 12 years of age. Babies weighing up to 13 kg require a rear-facing infant car seat, a forward-facing child seat is enough for a 9-month to 4-year-old weighing between 9-18 kg, and kids aged 4 to 12 or weighing between 15-36 kg should use a booster seat.
  • When it comes to North Yorkshire car hire, while venturing through the region, an SUV equipped with four-wheel drive and ample ground clearance proves to be optimal. These cars adeptly tackle the diverse road conditions of the region, encompassing gravel pathways and uneven landscapes, thereby providing stability and comfort. The presence of power steering further elevates manoeuvring, particularly valuable on intricate roads. Inclusion of supplementary provisions like a spare tyre, essential tools, and a dependable GPS or navigation system is advantageous. These attributes empower you to confidently navigate the multifaceted terrains of North Yorkshire, consequently enriching your overall journey.
  • After sorting out your North Yorkshire car hire, it’s important that you’re prepared for the diverse weather conditions that are native to this region. The weather can vary significantly, with rain, fog, and snow all being possible, particularly in elevated areas during the winter months. During adverse weather, road conditions can become slippery, so adjust your driving speed accordingly. Make sure your vehicle has a replacement tyre in good condition, and that you have a torch and an emergency warning triangle, should you break down or have an accident.
