KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Blackpool

  • When in Blackpool, you’ll want to head straight to tourist attractions like Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the famous Blackpool Tower and the Victorian-era tramway. All of these sites are at your disposal if you opt for car hire in Blackpool, which will give you the freedom to explore where you like, even on a whim. You can certainly walk around the beach front, but if you want to get the best out of everything the city has to offer, you’ll need to hop into a car and take a few drives.
  • Although Blackpool has its own airport, it really only serves emergency services and chartered flights, so for commercial flights into Blackpool, you’ll be landing at Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport, which is just over 34 miles away. This is not a problem at all once you pick up your hire car. To do so, head for the airport’s Car Rental Centre. It’s on ground floor of the car park that you’ll see right in front of you as you exit the main terminal building. You’ll spot the sign indicating the Express Drop Off & Pick Up Park. The main hire car operators there are Avis and Budget, Hertz, Enterprise and Europcar.
  • Although it’s a holiday town, you need to be on your toes if you choose Blackpool car hire as your way of getting around. The traffic can be bustling to say the least. Exercise the most caution on Central Drive, and make sure you keep a close look-out for faster traffic. There is an unusual amount of pedestrian traffic around the resort destinations and beaches, as there are plenty of tourists around enjoying their holiday breaks. So make sure to pay attention when driving in those areas as well, especially along the Promenade, which is well patrolled by the police.
  • Rush hour in Blackpool can vary according to how many people are in town, but in the main you can expect the traffic to peak at around 08:30 and again at 16:30 or so. To avoid the worst of it, you can drive via Poulton Road and Staining Road. Gynn Square can also become log-jammed at its roundabout. Among the major roads to avoid at this time are the M55 and Talbot Road, which is the main access road to North Pier. Another road that can get congested at these times is Central Drive (the A5099).

FAQs about renting a car in Blackpool

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Blackpool?

    If you’re going to be spending your time close to the beach, we’d certainly recommend that you opt for a little city car when you’re booking car hire in Blackpool. You’ll be able to park it easily and walk around the Promenade or onto the beaches and piers. You can then easily make your way back through the traffic without too much hassle. If you want to be a bit more extravagant about it, then a convertible suits the location very well too.

  • What’s the speed limit in Blackpool?

    Be very careful about observing speed limits in Blackpool. These speed limits take serious cognisance of the number of pedestrians in the streets, and most central and beach zones have 20mph limits. Otherwise, it’s the standard 30mph in residential areas. Just make sure that you keep an eye out for when the zones change – they’re well signposted.
