KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Barry

  • Barry might seem like a small beach town, but it's jam-packed with exciting things to do and is a great base location to visit surrounding areas like Sully or Cardiff. Booking a car hire in Barry is highly recommended for your holiday, as although you'll find there is a local bus service, the schedule is not very frequent which could mean wasting time waiting for transport to visit attractions, such as Barry Island Pleasure Park and the Porthkerry Country Park.
  • The closest airport to Barry is Cardiff Airport (CWL). Pre-booking a car hire in Barry and collecting it at the airport is the best way to avoid the hassle of public transport, and get your holiday started as soon as possible. Just load the car and go! You'll find a few popular cars hire companies at the airport. The most popular is Enterprise. All the car hire desks are located on the ground floor of the main Arrivals Terminal.
  • Barry is one of the easiest places to drive in Wales. The road system is not very complicated to navigate and you won't run into much traffic. There are more roundabouts than traffic lights, which means a consistent flow, rather than a stop-start inner city restriction.

  • There are some small difficulties when driving on Barry roads in your Barry car hire. Firstly, when you leave the main roads, it might be indicated that a road is a dual carriageway, but in reality, you might only be able to fit one car travelling in one direction at a time, which means slowing down and pulling to one side when faced with an oncoming car. The next thing to remember is not to be put off by road signs; some of them are written in Welsh, but there will most likely be an English translation below.
  • Book your car hire in Barry at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Barry are around 34% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Vehicle was as specified - not a substitute - which was important as we would not have coped with a different vehicle or smaller minivan. Most of the large Car Rental chains do not offer the larger minivans (Galaxy, Sharan, Alhambra) and visitors from USA will be surprirzed at how relatively small a UK minivan is as offer by the standard chains.

Cons:

Off Airport locations means calling the hotel or Easirent as no shuttle exists. Large credit card down payments and insurance options a surprise. Deposit for potentially no returning with a full tank a surprise.
