KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Doncaster

  • Choosing to book car hire in Doncaster will not only give you the independence to set your own schedule; it will also enable you to drive out of town to visit some of the tourist attractions across Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Wildlife Park is one such destination, about 5.5 miles away from the city centre. It has become home to rescued exotic and endangered animals from all over the world, so it’s a good cause to support as well. Another great place to visit is the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum, with its interactive exhibits. And then there’s one of the city’s greatest claims to fame, Doncaster Racecourse. It’s family-friendly and known as one of Europe’s finest.
  • The nearest airport to Doncaster is Doncaster-Sheffield Airport, but only a handful of smaller airlines operate regular flights in and out of it, and only to and from specific cities. You’re more likely to land at Humberside Airport, and from there it’s very easy to sort out your pre-booked car hire in Doncaster. You’ll find a good few of the major brands at the airport, such as Avis and Europcar, which are both situated in the arrivals hall in the main terminal building.
  • Possibly one of the most important things to look out for when you’re driving around the centre of Doncaster is the many primary schools in the area. This applies outside of school hours too, due to all the extracurricular activities, so be careful at all times during the day. At night time, keep an eye out for young revellers who frequent the popular nightclubs. Residential roads are obviously quieter, but once again, it pays to drive carefully as some of the back roads can have limited visibility.
  • You can expect the usual sort of urban rush hour in Doncaster, beginning at around 07:00, peaking at 08:00 and tailing off until around 09:00 depending on the day of the week. In the late afternoon, the pattern repeats, starting at around 15:30, becoming very congested at about 16:30 – 17:00 and petering out from around 18:00. At these times, avoid the Meadowhall area, particularly on the M1 The other road to steer clear of is the A635.
  • Book your car hire in Doncaster at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Doncaster are around -232% cheaper than other car types, on average
