KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Bangor

  • When visiting Wales, you may like to include a trip to the university city of Bangor. Cheap car hire in Bangor gives you freedom in one of the oldest cities in the country. Bangor offers a fantastic combination of urban activities with beautiful nature and some great cultural offerings too. Enjoy some of the UK’s finest architecture, including the Bangor Cathedral, experience the world’s fastest zip-line and take a drive out to Snowdonia National Park. If you feel like extending your driving experience, consider the roughly 4 hour trip to the Gower Peninsula, one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK.
  • When arriving in Bangor, you can find a variety of places from which to hire a car. Being based close to several airports in the UK makes cheap car hire in Bangor simple. Consider Manchester Airport (MAN) as an option; here you’ll find a wide range of agencies. If you fly in here, it’s only about 1h 45min by road to Bangor. Pick from Easirent, Keddy, Enterprise, SIXT, Green Motion, Alamo, Virtuo or Budget and get your Welsh adventures started the right way.
  • You should find the road rules simple enough to follow when driving your Bangor hire car, particularly if you have driven in the UK before. The roads of Bangor range from pristine motorways such as the A5 and A55 to small, narrow city roads that stem back to the old heritage of this ancient city. Stick to the speed limit, remain under the blood alcohol limit of 0.08% and always wear your seat belt. Despite Welsh being spoken widely in Bangor, English is very prominent and will be featured on all road signs, alongside the Welsh translations.
  • When driving your car hire in Bangor, you should only be faced with small frustrations. Occasionally, congestion around the A5 or A55 exits can cause delays, but they can be avoided with congestion alerts from a GPS. You will occasionally find roads closed due to animal herds wandering away from their pastures. In terms of the locals, you will find many students using the roads, so be aware that they favour bicycle and pedestrian lifestyles and will be given priority in the inner city areas and close to the university. Always keep on the lookout, particularly at night; Bangor is known for its rich nightlife which may lead to tipsy pedestrians.
  • Book your car hire in Bangor at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

You will also have to take factors like weather into account and pay attention to road signs in case of seasonal changes. Usually, 30 mph (48 km/h) on built-up roads is permitted, while the limit is 60 mph (97 km/h) for non-urban roads and 70 mph (113 km/h) on motorways.

  • Where are the best places to park in Bangor?

    There are several easy solutions for parking your Bangor hire car in the city. The usual free street parking, pay-and-display bay parking and metered car parks are available if you can find them, but often you will find that parking in a safe car park is easiest. Luckily Bangor has plenty of them in the central areas. Look for Glanrafon Car Park, Canonry Car Park and Menai Centre Car Park as good options.
