KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Chester

  • There is no better way to explore a city than at your own pace, giving you the freedom to explore when and where you want to. Car hire in Chester allows you to see all that the city has to offer and makes visiting the beautiful Cheshire countryside that bit easier. You can get to sites such as Chester Zoo, which is 3.5 miles away from the centre of Chester, in around 10min, which makes hiring a car more convenient than alternative modes of transport such as a bus.
  • One of the largest international airports close to Chester is Manchester Airport (MAN), situated about 33 miles from the city centre and approximately a 40min drive away. There are many rental companies at the airport to choose from, including Enterprise, Hertz and Europcar, which can all be found at Manchester Airport Car Rental Village. There is a free shuttle bus you can catch that leaves every 10min from each terminal, just follow the signs to the bus stop upon arrival.
  • Chester is a relatively small city, which is easy to navigate around, especially if you add a sat nav to your Chester car hire to ensure you don’t get lost. Keep an eye out for cyclists though, as bicycles are becoming a more and more common mode of transport across the UK, especially in smaller cities like Chester. Make sure you pay attention when turning, as cyclists often wind in between traffic when it’s congested.
  • Like most cities, driving at rush hour will be busier and therefore slower for you. Due to the compact size of Chester, during peak travel periods (weekdays between 17:00 and 18:00) you may find it will take you longer to get to your destination. The ring road in Chester is particularly affected by increased traffic. Weekends are busy in Chester, as it is a popular tourist city due to its medieval wall and buildings. Chester Racecourse also draws in crowds of racing fanatics throughout the racing season, which will inevitably make the city that much busier. There is also a significant chance of bad weather during winter months, with heavy rainfall and snow a common occurrence, which can cause havoc on the roads.

FAQs about renting a car in Chester

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

Pick up in Chester was really good, staff at Chester office polite and efficient. Europacar did explain car was older than normal due to issues getting new cars built / delivered. Car was ok but although recently cleaned was still dirty with ingrained marks / dirt in seats and carpets.
